    Trisha-

    I don’t believe I was asking you to compromise your standards was I ?

    Actually, I was doing the opposite by saying everyone has a right to have their voices heard as long as they are respectful and tolerant in the way they do it.

    I just urged you to seek Peace wherever possible. I believe that is a very good Rx for anyone.

    I’ll catch you later.

    Have some errands to run.

    :)

    “(6) KEY PLAY OF THE GAME = Stewart throwing out runner at 2B. Buck came up Snake Eyes on that play.”

    I thought Ryan made that play, great positioning on his part. I don’t think Nunez would have made the tag in time.

    That is so unfair. Typical, “what have you done for me lately” attitude.

    I think Nunez is able to catch that ball and apply that tag.

    I also think that Nunez probably gets to the ball that Ryan allowed to go under his glove
    late in the game.
    When Ryan did not catch that ground ball and throw the runner out at 1st, I was beginning to think the “defensive replacement” is going to cost the team 1 game. UGH!!!!

    I know no one here is an actual scout but a real baseball fan can tell a lot by seeing someone in person. Hell, I remember watching Betances on tv the first time. I think it was 3 spring trainings ago. I got on the phone and immediately called a friend telling him the Yanks had a young pitcher with the kind of stuff I’ve never seen before from their organization (actually once before, that was Joba but we won’t go there) But seeing these guys in person is the best. Living on the West Coast, I’ve gone to the AFL a couple times which is great fun.

    bigdan22,

    It’s too bad Christian Garcia never could get healthy enough to get here. He and Betances are the best pure arms I have seen from the Yankees coming through Trenton.

    Garcia is now with the Washington Nationals. He’s still can’t seem to shake the injury bug, but they talked of moving him out of the bullpen into the rotation to take advantage of his great arm.

    I was hoping to see him with the Nationals’ AA Harrisburg team, but he got promoted before the series started. Good for him.

    I’m lucky to be so close to Trenton, considering it really is the unofficial make-or-break ground of all the miL levels. I’m happy to talk prospects and share what I see, but the next best thing is signing up for milb tv on the internet. I don’t go to all the games, so it’s great to have that, if you don’t already.

    Thunder pulled it out! Need one of three in Harrisburg and EL champs :D Especially gratifying to see a Thunder edition with some legit projectible Yankees…

    JAP – The same is true for the NHL where injuries are treated like matters of national security.
    ///

    Yup. I’m familiar with the inner lining of that league, too :) . Football, though, it’s a veritable light show. After practice, reporters hold vigil for the most important guy in the organization: the trainer.

    He comes out, starts talking, and the writers start scribbing: most of it sheer nonsense.

    :D

    MTU – I think that people may confuse my deep passion for issues with some lack of inner peace! Actually the opposite is true. I live out my passions with zeal and that’s where I find my peace.

    I really do know how to live, laugh, and love, even it doesn’t appear so!

    :)

    TODAY IS GONNA BE THE DAY!!!

    Why is David Price rooting for the Yankees to catch them in the wildcard? :wink:

    “That is so unfair. Typical, “what have you done for me lately” attitude.”

    Unfair? No. I thought Nunez would not have made that tag. As a matter of fact I don’t think Jeter would have made it either.

    “When Ryan did not catch that ground ball and throw the runner out at 1st, I was beginning to think the “defensive replacement” is going to cost the team 1 game. UGH!!!!”

    That is so unfair. Ryan was up all night on the redeye from Seattle, then he misses a grounder that maybe Ozzie Smith would have had but neither Nunez nor Jeter would have gotten to in their dreams, and you say that.

    Too bad the day wasn’t the day he pitched…

    Nope

  14. blake September 12th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    Ryan is a net better player than Nunez..

    KC broke through the Top 10 in SI power rankings and I haven’t heard anyone complain that Miguel Tejada was allowed to play during the appeal of his suspension.

    “Unfair? No. I thought Nunez would not have made that tag. As a matter of fact I don’t think Jeter would have made it either.”

    I think Jeter would have…..he positions himself pretty well on those plays……Nunez I have no idea…..heat have made it…..the ball may have hit him in the forehead too

  17. 86w183 September 12th, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    Bucky Dent would have made that play, but not Jerry Kenney

    Another fun chat with Chad. I tell you what, the man does great work on this blog
    and I think all of us should show the man some appreciation for the time and effort he
    takes to keep us readers informed.

    Trisha, you pose an interesting supposition if the shoe was on the other foot and it was Pedroia and not A-Rod. When I was a kid, I used to read the comics, and there was a character named Billy Batson who when he would say the word “Shazam,” he turned into Captain Marvel who had super strength. If Pedroia was using steroids to become Captain Marvel, I would be very angry at him especially that he had helped win two World Series and had beaten out the Yankees with his newly aquired super strength. Since we all agree that we must follow the letter of the law, Pedroia has the right to play, but my feeling are that as long as he is playing with his true identity of Billy Batson and not Captain Marvel, I will wait for his punishment hoping that it will be severe enough to deter others from taking the same road.

    Wait a second. Has Pedroia been accused of PED use this week?
    News to me.
    Please continue

  21. Hankflorida September 12th, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    WTP, I assure you that Pedroia looks like Billy Batson, and in no way resembles Captain Marvel either from uttering Shazam or from using steroids.

  22. Chambliss September 12th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    There may be several guys on the sux who are taking PED’s. Pedroia does not come to mind.
