Ryan at short, Rodriguez at DH

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 11, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Earlier today, the Yankees officially moved their radio broadcasts to WFAN for the 2014 season. Games will be simulcast on WFAN-AM 660 and WFAN-FM 101.9. Both radio stations will carry all Yankees regular season and postseason games, Yankees pregame and postgame shows, as well as broadcasts of select Yankees spring training games.

Jim Miller not listed in the bullpen. Looks like he’s the move for Ryan.

Brett Gardner CF
Alex Rodriguez DH
Robinson Cano 2B

    Welcome, Brendan Ryan !

  2. luis September 11th, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    Well… The bottom third is a complete offensive black hole… Well, with the exception of Overbay

  3. UpState September 11th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    …bottom 3 do bring good “D” to the game !

    I think everyone is going to enjoy watching Ryan play defense. No more stomachache when the ball is hit to short.

  5. Hankflorida September 11th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    The Yankees played most of the year with a National League lineup, so by now, we should be acclimated to it. It has been said on this blog that after Pettitte who keeps the ball down, Nunez will be back.

    AJ has faced the minimum through 4 against Texas…..a little early for no hitter calls but man he’s been good since going to Pittsburgh
    ———————————————
    I’m happy for AJ and at the same time I am convinced letting him go elsewhere was the right move. Imagine if he was on the team this year. Start after start of frustration and I don’t think he would be as successful in a Yankee uniform.
    Same goes for IPK.
    I’m happy for him but I firmly believe he would not have had the same success as a Yankee.
    Hughes might be the next to fall into that category.

    “It has been said on this blog that after Pettitte who keeps the ball down, Nunez will be back.”

    I don’t think so. I think the Yanks got Ryan to play every day.

  8. long_atbat September 11th, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    I’m going to lmfao if Ryan gets a big hit tonight.

  9. UnKnown September 11th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    AL!!!!! :grin:

    Wow. Really surprised he is in there, but what can you say the guy is a total Gamer!! Heart of a champion no doubt. He is just going to have to take it easy running the bases. We will have to live with that.

    Also super excited to see Ryan with the glove tonight. Dude is an absolute wizard.

    I don’t think I could be more excited for a regular season game. WOW!! Just Win Baby!! Let’s Play!

    WTP – I do know that there are certain instances where things will be sealed for protection purposes. Some courts have automatic protection. I don’t think it has to do with $$$. It could be for the protection of some of the witnesses. There might be witnesses coming forward who have been requested privacy for one reason or another. Physican-patient records are sealed by some courts, psychiatrist-patient also. It varies from state to state

    Welcome Brendan Ryan. I hope he makes every play when he’s on the field.

    Nunez had his chance to prove he was “good enough” to stay on the field but in this pennant race, with the games meaning so much on a daily basis and with Jeter injured yet again, did the Yankees really have any other choice?

    Ryan has a rep known around the league was a GREAT defensive SS.
    Sounds like a win/win to me.

  12. Hankflorida September 11th, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I don’t think so. I think the Yanks got Ryan to play every day.

    Wave Your Hat, you may be right as they played Jeter at short while in his Spring training mode and his limited mobility.

  13. Wave Your Hat September 11th, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    “WTP – I do know that there are certain instances where things will be sealed for protection purposes.”

    It will be sealed because this is an arbitration between private parties and the CBA provides for it.

    Well, the radio station switch is good for me. I can never get the CBS games to come in clearly on the radio when I’m driving in my area.

    We’ll have you to thank, primo, when they go a combined 4 for 8 :mrgreen:

    Good to see Alex is feeling healthy enough to play. I was listening to postgame in the car and Alex told Suzyn he would likely be in. Suzyn had dashed after Alex to get the scoop before he disappeared into the night. Suzyn does go through rain, snow, sleet and hail, etc. to get the Yankee inside story. And don’t forget the Yogi-George reunion. LOL.

    Our boy’s tough, isn’t he? :D

    That’s a good sign, though. Feeling good enough to DH. You know, the range is diminished but the arm is still dynamite. BTW, I think Alex was right and the throw wasn’t going to be there. He’s always thinkin’, our AL (sometimes too much when hitting, but not lately :) )

  18. yankeefeminista September 11th, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Does WFAN come in in Northern Ct. and New England? I can usually get CBS even when crossing the Newport Bridge.

    Alex was born to play baseball.

    still in the win one lose one mode..will it ever change ?

  22. joeman September 11th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    on a good nite (clear) I got WFAN at Cape Cod

    “on a good nite (clear) I got WFAN at Cape Cod”

    After it moved to FM?

    Hopefully, tonight. I thought I saw you’re feeling better. That’s good.

    “I think everyone is going to enjoy watching Ryan play defense. No more stomachache when the ball is hit to short.”

    yea Nunez probably would provide marginally more offensively but I don’t think that outweighs the vast difference between the two defensively…..I think Ryan is a net better option and now I don’t have to hold my breath every time a ball is hit to SS……Ryan would have probably saved them at least 1 run last night….maybe more.

  26. Doreen September 11th, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    J Al -

    There are a lot of Philly people there, that’s true. And it might be that if they were a little further north they could maybe draw some more of a NY crowd, except for NJ traffic!!!

    I wish the Yankees would promote that ballpark more – it’s easy to get to (and there are easy ways to circumvent the turnpike), and the park itself is in such a lovely setting. I wonder if people hear “Trenton,” and think, “hmm, nope.”

    And perhaps they should have promoted the AA playoffs on the air more?

    Anyway, good luck to them tonight.

    Jeter to DL done for season

  28. Against All Odds September 11th, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Crazy season for Jeter

  29. blake September 11th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Mark Feinsand ?@FeinsandNYDN 1m
    Dr. Anderson said a lot of areas of Jeter’s ankle need to be strengthened. There’s simply no time to do that this season.

  30. Wave Your Hat September 11th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    “Dr. Anderson said a lot of areas of Jeter’s ankle need to be strengthened.”

    Wow, not good.

  31. benfica356 September 11th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    so that means if the yankees make it, nunez would be our only ss

    Cashman: “This was a much more difficult rehabilitation situation than we ever expected.”

    how could they be caught off guard by this? It took Adams almost 2 years to make it back to full strength from a similar injury

  33. Warning Track Power September 11th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    I feel so bad for Jeter. You know the kid wants to be on the field in the worst way.
    Has to be difficult for him to watch these games. A helpless feeling I’m sure.
    Get that ankle well Jeter and prepare for the 2014 season.
    Yankees are going to need you!!!

    Against All Odds September 11th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Yea it’s too early to write off Manny. I think Dellin can be a very good and maybe even great reliever. Hopefully he can get into a few games and go on a run.
    ////

    Odds, I was very heartened to hear that the decision to put Betances in the bullpen was not unanimous among Yankee decision makers, and that it was more or less a “split vote.”

    So given that: his age and his weapons, and his convincing last three starts, especially in context to where he had been, plus his own admission that he had started “to figure things out” as a starter (this is a kid who does not rock the boat, so that was a genuine belief on his part), I would not be surprised to see him get another chance to start.

    I would really like to know who wanted to stick with him as a starter.
    ——————-

    If they are in need of starters then he’ll probably be in the mix but if not I think they would rather just keep him in the pen.

  35. Eric in the ATL September 11th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Who the heck would be our backup SS if we make it to the playoffs? I guess Alberto Gonzales.

  36. joeman September 11th, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    jeter had a fracture ankle that needed surgery how did they expect him to be back in less than a year…and Jeter deserves a lot of say but he was calling the shots not the NYY or doctors

  37. Hans Davenport September 11th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Well… The bottom third is a complete offensive black hole… Well, with the exception of Overbay

    No Murphy, no plan for future as usual.

  38. long_atbat September 11th, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Crushing… Still hoping that he might have a chance for post season. Post season with no Jeet just wont be the same.
