Pinch hitting: Michael Ogle

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 28, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Today’s Pinch Hitter is Michael Ogle. He’s from Asheville, N.C. and currently lives just outside Chattanooga, TN, but Michael says he hasn’t missed a Yankees game in years thanks to MLB.TV. When he returned to school a few years ago to finish a degree in network management, Michael discovered that he actually enjoyed writing, so here he is.

For his post, Michael is taking a look at the future of Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Sure, Girardi’s locked into a four-year contract. But does that actually mean he will still be here in four years?

Alex Rodriguez, Joe GirardiThe 2014 season presents many questions for the Yankees. Questions like, how much will Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran contribute? How productive will Mark Teixeira be? How much will a 40-year-old Derek Jeter contribute, and how often? The luxury tax issue alone presents several questions.

And that’s not to mention the Alex Rodriquez issues the team will have to deal with at the start of the season, which include finding a third basemen.

Obviously there are many unanswered questions surrounding the 2014 Yankees. One question I haven’t heard anyone ask or speculate on is one concerning Joe Girardi. That question is, how long will the Yankees give Joe to turn the team around?

As any Yankees fan knows, championships are what matters in New York. Finishing over .500 and securing a few playoff appearances alone are good enough for a lot of teams but not even close to acceptable for the Yankees. When does Girardi start feeling the heat in New York? He signed a deal in October for four years. I think he is safe for two of those years, but a lot can and will happen for the Yankees in those two years. It is not hard to look at this Yankees team and see who will be gone and who will be past his prime in two years. These are all the things Girardi has to deal with and find some way to win or, I believe, he will start feeling that heat from the front office and maybe the fans as well.

If the Yankees are serious about the luxury tax, and if there is only minimal help in the minors, it is hard to see how he will it around quickly. Not to mention the AL East is as tough as it gets. I would like to think the Yankees know what Girardi has to work with and leave him in place for those four years, but we all know any manager is only a season away from getting a new deal or getting fired.

In the end, chasing wins by firing and hiring managers never seems to work. In the last 22 years, the Cubs have had eight managers, and in those years they have four playoff appearances and no championships. Teams like Cincinnati and Milwaukee and several others have similar records during the same time. The Yankees have more World Series championship rings than any of those teams have playoff appearances in those 22 years.

Many people will say money is the biggest factor. Maybe it is, but money is a positive factor only when it is spent correctly, and that includes hiring and firing managers. Continuity in managers is a glaring difference between those teams and the Yankees. I believe the Yankees made a smart choice in signing Girardi to another four years, and I hope he gets all four years to prove it.

    ubaldo’s era+ the last 3 seasons is 87.6, hughes’ for the same 3 years is 84

  2. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:23 am

    a rather superficial look into the yankees manager, i’d say. no real insight, just alot why any organization should keep or get rid of a manager in general. nothing about girardi’s strenghts or weaknesses or how they will play with this team over the next few years.

    nothing about his history of using and resting older players (i.e. matsui and damon) on a team with many of them, nothing about his skills in developing a bridge to the closer on a team that has no obvious bridge to the closer. nothing about joes rigidity in making out the lineup card, nothing about how he might fair with the new replay rules, which may play a big part in mlb managers feeling the heat.

    theres no meat in this post, imo.

    thank you for the effort though.

  3. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 9:24 am

    I believe Cashman when he said significant spending is over. Ubaldo and Drew are very likely to be much too costly.

    If they still have any money, I think Drew would be the most needed. I am afraid I agree Derek may not be able to play with regularity.

    My best guess is they do nothing until spring training makes the health issues clearer. The problem is spring may tell us mobility but not how durable his ankle will be.

  4. comet January 28th, 2014 at 9:26 am

    How long did Pat M. play in the majors for Who? what is his name? Curious.

  5. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:27 am

    Hey Asheville! My old stompin grounds. Nice post and agree….Girardi is part of the solution ….not the problem IMO. Actually I think Cashman is a good GM too…..for me the problem is a combination of poor luck with prospects, ownership meddling……and perhaps some less than great minor league development people

  6. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:29 am

    I think that Hughes deal will be a very good bargain for the Twins

    I don’t think he made it to the majors….if I remember right he was a SS and made it to AAA……which is better than most.

  8. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:31 am

    I was a pretty good player and could have never made it close to where Pat M did…..he knows the game ….has contacts in the game……his brain just gets frozen sometimes when the temp drops below 72 out there in SoCal

  9. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:31 am

    so i had hughe’s contract terms wrong but he is pretty much on par with hughes imo with the big difference being that hughe’s is coming off his worst year of the past 3 while ubaldo is coming off his best of his past 3.

    if hughes is worth $8M/year, ubaldo is likely worth the same, but would figure to get alot more coming off a better year. its all about the timing.

    i dont know that i want the yankees to sign ublaldo unless he comes pretty cheap, but i am a little afraid that he might sign with baltimore then have a good year.

  10. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:33 am

    wow, im a mess this morning, need coffee. i was comparing hughes to ubaldo of course not to himself…

  11. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:35 am

    yes i think hughes’ deal will be good and he’ll pitch well in target field. i dont get why the Met’s werent all in on him, especially considering that they gave bartolo 2 years. that’s a head-scratcher to me.

  12. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:35 am

    I think the Yankees would sign Ubaldo for 1 year…..anti said yesterday at this point I think their main concern is the 2015 payroll because that’s when Arods money comes back.

    They are at roughly 205 for this year now and that’s well below where they have been in the past…..but the problem is if they start adding more multi year deals then their 2015 payroll is gonna be really high….

  13. comet January 28th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    I agree Blake just playing in Triple is pretty amazing!

  14. Tackelberry January 28th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    DOn’t want Ubaldo or E. Santana. Still would like to see them take a chance on a KRod or Hanrahan for the pen, or even Rodney pn a 1 year deal

  15. Bret The Hitman January 28th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    That’s a good point Blake, also considering they need $$ for Sandoval or Headley. That’s maybe why they won’t bring in Brandon Phillips.

    But Jeter’s contract expires. And so does Kuroda.

  16. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    cashman said he thought they needed to add 400 innings. with kuroda and tanaka, he’s probably still a little short of that goal. but i dont want to see them sign ubaldo for 2/$30M or so.

  17. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:39 am

    The yanks have : Arod (27.5) Tex 23, CC, 23, Tanaka 22, Ellsbury, 22, McCann, 17, Beltran 15. Already on the books for 2015.

    That’s 150 million right there for 7 players….they’d have virtually no infield, need an outfielder, need a starter to replace Kuroda, and need somebody to replace DRob.

    I would guess this is why they may be hesitant to add more longterm money right now

  18. pkyankfan69 January 28th, 2014 at 9:40 am

    Ubaldo on a 1 year deal for anywhere in the range of 12 – 15 M seems like a great deal for the Yanks… What do we lose for signing him, a pick in the 60′s or so?

    CC – Kuroda – Tanaka – Nova – Ubaldo backed up by Pineda/Phelps/Warren and maybe Manny later in the season also… Absolute ton of depth.

    Not much risk at all in a 1 year deal for him.

  19. Revenge of Stoneburner January 28th, 2014 at 9:40 am

    Pat M built up my Hughes hopes last offseason

    My hope is that his Pineda talk is spot on this time (as opposed to Hughes last year), because he is one of only a few saying Pineda will be a positive factor and watch out by June

  20. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:42 am

    Really for this to work best they need somebody to step up and take an outfield spot for 2015…..hopefully Heathcott will be able to give them a league minimum Gardner in 2015……hopefully Banuelos or Pineda will replace Kuroda cheap…..and hopefully they can either sign Robertson or find some pen help cheaply.

    If they can do those things then perhaps they’ll have money available to fix the infield next winter…..we shall see .

    I don’t see Hal taking the payroll to 250……

  21. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Ubaldo on a 1 year deal for anywhere in the range of 12 – 15 M seems like a great deal for the Yanks… What do we lose for signing him, a pick in the 60?s or so?”

    Yea …I think the problem is though that there are much better places to do a pillow deal for a pitcher than Yankee stadium . I would think he might just go back to Cleveland if he decided to do that

  22. Bret The Hitman January 28th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Jimenez for Kuroda
    Sandoval or Headley for Jeter (definitely an upcharge)
    LF for Soriano + Gardner + Ichiro
    SS for Nova
    Banuelos for Nova
    Kelly Johnson still at 2B

  23. Revenge of Stoneburner January 28th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    I just do not see how Heathcott can be counted on – he is way too injury prone

  24. Tackelberry January 28th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Has anyone heard when there will be a press conference to introduce Tanaka? I’m guessing it won’t be this week since the NFL wouldn’t want the Super Bowl hoopla here in NY to be upstaged at all. Maybe it will be next week after the SB?

  25. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 9:44 am

    pk, I think Yanks has the 56 picks this year after the spree they went thru this winter. I think that may have something to do with their decision to splurge on IFA later on in the summer. From I read, it’s a deep domestic draft.

    Don’t think Yanks are getting ubaldo or Drew and I am probably right on this one.

  26. blake January 28th, 2014 at 9:45 am

    The Yanks did not intend it this way – but they splurged with the u.s. amateur draft last year with three first round picks – and now they are using the IFA july 2nd to do the reverse this year

  29. Ys Guy January 28th, 2014 at 9:46 am

    i cant imagine why the yankees would care what the nfl thinks of them holding a presser.

    not that there’s any reason to rush, but while all the press is in NYC it might be the best time to do it.

    personally i dont give a fig about the presser, but screw the nfl.

  30. Revenge of Stoneburner January 28th, 2014 at 9:47 am

    Phillies really need Pat Gillick back – he deserves his own Billy Beane movie

  31. pkyankfan69 January 28th, 2014 at 9:48 am

    Don’t think Yanks are getting ubaldo or Drew and I am probably right on this one.
    ————-
    Yeah, I tend to agree… Baker and a flier on someone like Hanrahan seems much more likely.

    If 3B ends up being a big problem in season I would expect them to go after Headley or Aram… Both are on teams that will likely be out of it before the TD and both are at the end of their deals (assume Aram will be bought out for ’15) so they will both likely be for sale.

  32. Tackelberry January 28th, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Cashmoney:

    I agree. Even with the spending spree the Yanks went on, they only lost picks in the first and comp round, so from the 2nd round on, they have all their picks. Still should be able to get a good coup of talent. Exciting the see their willingness to really be agreesive with the IFA market this year too.

  33. MTU January 28th, 2014 at 9:56 am

    Morning.

    Just a quick drive by as I have to go to Vegas today.

    Interesting discussion about MT.

    IMO his floor is a 3. His ceiling Ace.

    Any who has watched this kid pitch should be plenty excited about him.

  35. pkyankfan69 January 28th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    CF – Ellsbury
    SS – Jeter
    RF – Beltran
    C – McCann
    DH – Soriano
    1B – Tex
    3B – Johnson
    2B – Roberts
    LF – Gardner

    Cervelli – Ryan – Baker – Ichiro

    CC – Kuroda – Tanaka – Nova – Pineda

    Drob – Kelley – Thornton – Claiborne – Betances – Cabral – Phelps

    Warren being the #6 man pitching regularly in AAA.

    That’s my guess at this point for the opening day line up and 25 man roster… I’m assuming the Astros will throw their new “ace” Feldman on opening day against us.

  36. Hankflorida January 28th, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Austinmac, I think that Ryan will be the man if Derek cannot hack it. With the ground ball pitches they have, Ryan has the glove to keep some runs off the board. I said before that during the championship years the weakest link with the bat with all their shortstops was Crosetti with a .245 lifetime batting average. I do not think that Ryan can match that, and if he is our regular shortstop, we can think of the Yankees as a Nation League team.

  37. MTU January 28th, 2014 at 10:06 am

    it’s a vicious cycle, the margin return on dollars spent FA are likely to get lower and lower, in 09, Yanks spent and got legit allstar player and assurance of playoff in return, this year, you are hoping for wildcard competitiveness. If Yanks don’t develop their own and find new ways to corral talents they will crashed and burned and end up with a even more bloated payroll but less talents to show for it.

  40. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 10:07 am

    That about sums up the Yankee infield for me.

    @RiverAveBlues: In @keithlaw’s rankings, the Yanks’ farm system checks in at No. 20. http://t.co/p75WByy2wR Sounds about right to me.

    Yea Id say so….it’s all very fluid though. As I’ve said it won’t take much for the Yanks farm to look a lot better

    I was talking to my dad and my uncle yesterday and said I was worried about their INF because if one of Jeter/Tex go down we’re in trouble and if both go down we’re screwed.

    My uncle asked what the chances of both going down were.

    My dad responded with ‘about as good as they were when it happened last year.’

    My dad really should post here lol.

    “How long did Pat M. play in the majors for Who? what is his name? Curious.”

    pat played as high as triple A for the yankees.

    he was a shortstop.

    what he knows is how it feels like to face a steve carlton slider or what it feels like to confidently field a hard hit grounder. basically,pat m knows what it feels like to play the game.as

    baseball is often a 50/50 game. one team wins.one team loses. a hitter is either safe or out. a player is good or bad.

    this 50/50 thing gives even the casual fan a decent chance of being right a good portion of the time.

    it also makes it possible for a guy with pro experience like pat m to be wrong about some things because how can he know more than a casual fan who can win say one game or one series?

    also there is the problem of two mlb players taking different sides of an issue. they both have pro experience yet they take different sides of a 50/50 thing.

    that said, even when i take the the other side of a baseball question from pat m, i pay attention to his position because he’s right more often than he’s not.

    —————

    If it were just this one year of uncertainty you’d feel more comfortable, but our INF this year and going forward is pretty terrible as it stands.

    I dunno if they’ll fix it before this season but I hope they have targets for next year. They’re gonna need to spend a ton of cash next off season too, just to field a team. Unless they do something un-Yankee like and start making trades.

    Fuji, that reads more like a zero & sum proposition to me. When I was talking Pat M, i was talking about the subject of T, none of his argument seem that compelling aside from the obvious facts of FA market is inflated and there is inherent risk with mega contracts.

  52. blake January 28th, 2014 at 10:35 am

    The best people in actually predicting what happens in sports probably live in Las Vegas

  53. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 10:52 am

    Pat M.,brings great thoughts to us, but no one knows with any certainty what Tanaka or anyone else will do. That’s why we love the game. The Jays sure enjoyed their pennant last year. The Sox were to finish at the bottom.

    It’s spring. We have new players to watch. I will be hopeful until proven otherwise. We still need Drew and a solid back end reliever. Then, I would become confident the season would at least be competitive.

  54. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 10:53 am

    Blake,

    I know little about gambling, but don’t Vegas odds simply tell us how they think they can get the most betting action rather than predicting an outcome.

  55. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 10:56 am

    200 mil is plenty dough, it’s how they invested those dollars. It’s about the possibility of operating under a outdated model under a brave new world. It’s about the long term sustainability of Yankees modus operandi without a influx of young core however you acquire them.

  56. blake January 28th, 2014 at 10:58 am

    “I know little about gambling, but don’t Vegas odds simply tell us how they think they can get the most betting action rather than predicting an outcome.”

    Yea but I’m not talking about the odds….I’m talkin about the people that make the odds.

  57. Doreen January 28th, 2014 at 11:00 am

    Actually, with Tanaka, I seemed like Pat M was saying he was favorable toward it, until the price got so high. It’s a valid point that he is being paid like an ace before he’s even thrown a pitch, and what that MAY do is predispose at least a portion of the fan base (don’t know what sized portion) to thinking that Tanaka will be “worth the money.”

    the Yankees were hurt by the new posting system. If it was the old system, and they’d bid a gazillion dollars, the actual contract Tanaka signed likely would have been less stratospheric, and the expectations comparable.

    I believe Pat M is correct when he worries that if there is an adjustment period, there is a risk that fans will go all “vampire” on him (I think those were his words), which just makes an unpleasant situation.

    I think it’s prudent to temper expectations of a pitcher who, while all signs point to him being a very good signing, has no track record in the ML .

    As far as being “worth the money,” well, he was certainly worth the money to the Yankees based on their need. He’s at least a spark of light in that rotation. Potentially.

  58. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:02 am

    Law ranks the Yankees farm at no. 20. Boy, we really need a bounce back year. Last year I said it as a critical year for the farm. Try again.

    Heathcott, Williams, Austin and Sanchez all had their evaluations drop. At least two of them need to contribute by 2015-16. Ramirez and Depaula need to be healthy and pitch well. They have the tools, I think.

  59. Doreen January 28th, 2014 at 11:02 am

    Ugh. Predispose a portion of the fan base to thinking about WHETHER Tanaka is worth the money.

  60. blake January 28th, 2014 at 11:03 am

    I think Tanaka is going to give up 5 runs a season

  61. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:06 am

    No one is “worth the money” under any logical assessment. However, I don’t think the Yankees paid above market value. Had they not signed their new players, I have no doubt someone else would have paid a similar amount.

  62. blake January 28th, 2014 at 11:07 am

    Do we get Drew today?

  63. Wave Your Hat January 28th, 2014 at 11:09 am

    With an offense as old as the Yank’s offense is, with important players coming back from season long injuries, If the Yanks stand pat on offense they are taking a major gamble on avoiding injuries.

  64. Shame Spencer January 28th, 2014 at 11:10 am

  66. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:13 am

    Blake,

    I vote yes for a Drew signing. It is more likely they will add one more player who has had one good season a few years ago at AA. Twenty-eight year olds who have never seen the majors have convinced the entire baseball world they are not good enough. Yet, we hope we will have one play key roles.

    For example, Dean Anna. One good year in the PCL. I see no basis in fact to believe he or the other similar players can contribute 1 WAR.

  67. Tackelberry January 28th, 2014 at 11:13 am

    Mac:

    Sanchez actually had a pretty decent year. Don’t know why his evaluation dropped. The others all had off years for one reason or another. Some of it was injury related also. In any case, yeah, all the guys you mention really need to bounce back this year. Also, guys like Mark Montgomery and Bryan Mitchell need to step forward this year, and we really need Banuelos to rebound from his lost year as well. Lets also hope the guys in the lower levels that had good years continue to progress this year

  68. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:15 am

    As any Yankees fan knows, championships are what matters in New York. Finishing over .500 and securing a few playoff appearances alone are good enough for a lot of teams but not even close to acceptable for the Yankees.

    I beg to differ as last year many of us were following every team in competition for the 2nd Wildcard down to the wire as long as the Yankees were in it. From 1937 to 1964, I had that mind set of World Series rings is all that matters, but when the Horace Clarke Era passed, I became conditioned like Pavlov’s Dog to the pain of losing. Now, all I asked is to be following the summary of the best and worst cases on this blog of the contending teams getting into the playoffs in September “as the days dwindle down to a precious few.”

  71. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:18 am

    Tackle,

    Sanchez hit just over .250 with some power. Not bad for a catcher, but since offense is his calling card, he has to hit more for me. Most of his year was a repeat in the FSL. Not improving in a repeat year at a level is likely the cause for his devaluation.

    All I have are stats so I have no real evaluation.

  72. Blojaldo January 28th, 2014 at 11:19 am

    There is no need to sign Drew right now. The Yankees have significantly improved their team and they should be able to compete. If the need is there mid-season they will make a deal. I think Cashman is doing exactly the right thing; let’s see how everyone performs in spring training and early in the season and give those on the roster right now a chance to step up.

  75. austinmac January 28th, 2014 at 11:22 am

    Hank,

    The first years I remember we’re 1960-64. I thought we won every year. Boy, did I get a lesson in reality. Now, I would obviously love a championship but will accept being in contention all year giving me six months of fun and hope.

    It’s not a question of whether the Yanks need or don’t need Drew. It’s been obvious for a long time that they are not signing him. Folks just need to get over that.

    No question, many top Yankee prospects took a step back last season. But let’s not forget one player who took a step forward. Murphy. It’s nice to have a position player who actually performs in the higher levels. And all along last year, even in ST, Murphy looked like the real deal. He could possibly be a starting ML catcher. That’s really worth something. He needs to repeat his success this year (probably in Scranton) and then the Yanks might really have something next off season.

  79. Wave Your Hat January 28th, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Murphy did take a step forward last year. If the Yanks could trade him for an average second baseman he would be worth something. But I don’t think they can, and since his future with the Yanks is not at catcher, and first (and probably third) is blocked, I don’t see where he fits in.

    ///

    Sanchez was bothered by a bone bruise on his wrist which may have factored into his struggles. He had some very potent ABs in his brief AA campaign, including a couple where he went down in the count, looked bad on breaking pitches, and then fought back to pull the bal for extra bases. In those ABs, he seemed to really zero in once he was down two strikes and became dangerous (Manny Ramirez was always scarier with 2 strikes, and Sanchez also seems to dig in once he’s got no more margin for error).

    You can watch him on milb.com and visit the archives of the Eastern League playoffs if you want to see him scorching balls down the line and finding himself in a hole. This year will be a big one for him.

  81. Hankflorida January 28th, 2014 at 11:41 am

    Austinmac, As the days dwindle down to a precious few” is a line from the “September Song”. It is a metaphor on growing old from the show ” Knickabocker Holiday.” As we get older, it seems that we must try to appreciate each day on earth because we must come to terms that December is the finality of our existence. I use this line as to the enjoyment of being a Yankee fan and realizing it just a game that it is be enjoyed, and if the Yankees are there in the last week even for the 2nd Wildcard, we should all find some joy in being there, and remember that the day after the Yankees win the ring, like Sisyphus, the journey begins again.

    I don’t think it’s likely….but it’s not obvious at all IMO

  83. J. Alfred Prufrock January 28th, 2014 at 11:41 am

    *after finding himself in a hole.

    Kid is also a catcher and trying to improve; Murphy’s bat went through lulls also with all the focus on upgrading his catching skills.

  84. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 11:42 am

    I think NY farm lacks positional star power right now. I think Austin, Flores, Sanchez can all become MLB starters with their hit tools. Sanchez and Austin can be above average. It’s very difficult for the Yankees to get that raw physical specimen that come with baseball skills in June drafts that’s why you need to look else where.

  85. Doreen January 28th, 2014 at 11:44 am

    J. Al -

    I was impressed with Sanchez’ at-bats in the game I saw him. He really battled, and saw a couple of nice line drives from him.

    the only thing that worried me a little was that quite a few pitches hit off his glove (didn’t go far, but weren’t caught cleanly). Now, I don’t know if this was a product of his ability or whether it was unfamiliarity with the pitcher, or that there was a particular type of pitch he was having trouble with.

    I know he will be valued more for his bat, but it was a little disconcerting to see.

  86. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 11:46 am

    I also think Sanchez’s body type can endure the rigors of being a catcher.

  87. bigdan22 January 28th, 2014 at 11:47 am

    “Murphy did take a step forward last year. If the Yanks could trade him for an average second baseman he would be worth something. But I don’t think they can, and since his future with the Yanks is not at catcher, and first (and probably third) is blocked, I don’t see where he fits in.”

    ——-

    I wouldn’t worry about Murphy being blocked right now. He’s still pretty young and hasn’t played all that much at AAA. A good full season there can only help his value. And he still could play this coming season in the majors if someone gets hurt.

    Ideally both Sanchez and Murphy have a good year on the farm and then the Yanks will have a decision as to who they would like to trade next offseason. No question, middle infield is the most glaring need long term (probably short term too lol) on the club.

  88. Blojaldo January 28th, 2014 at 11:47 am

    I am so psyched! I think barring a rash of injuries the Yankees could have a great year. Man, did management ever step up and commit to winning. I don’t think many fans in November thought they would sign Tanaka, Beltran, McCann and Ellsbury.

    I think the Yankees do have a sound strategy for the future as they try to strengthen their traditional farm and development system in addition to their major free agent signings. Namely, their intent to “break the bank” in the international market in the near future. That is their ace-in-the-hole and I fully expect them to obtain some excellent players.

    For a team in transition from the core four and other older players, where gutting and re-building over time is not an option, I think they have done a great job so far and I think the future is bright indeed.

  89. J. Alfred Prufrock January 28th, 2014 at 11:48 am

    Doreen,

    Yeh he’s a little stabby but the arm is really good, and he’s athletic enough so maybe we just have to wait him out a little longer on the finer points.

    I think what we have seen in the box is his hitter’s personality – the battling and coming through in pitcher’s counts.

    Can’t wait to see him for a full season, for I can’t imagine him being moved up even if he goes off because of the catching part, and because Murphy may be in AAA.

  90. Cashmoney January 28th, 2014 at 11:55 am

    as a hitter Pru, Sanchez reminds me of Ronnie Belliard.

  91. J. Alfred Prufrock January 28th, 2014 at 11:57 am

    dan22,

    It’s too bad one of Murph or Sanchez isn’t a LHB.

    I like them both, have seen much more of Murphy live, but Sanchez’s power and his ability to flat out scald the baseball places him in the “not moving” category for me.

  92. J. Alfred Prufrock January 28th, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    Cashmoney,

    I haven’t seen enough of Belliard to make the comparison.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO.

    In 1938, Nikumaroro was colonized as part of the Phoenix Islands Settlement Scheme (yes, the PISS) an effort to bleed off surplus population from the southern Gilbert Islands into economically self sufficient coconut plantations in the mostly uninhabited Phoenix group. A village was established near the north end of the island, and in 1940 the colonial administrator, Gerald B. Gallagher, set up his headquarters there. Gallagher died and was buried on the island in 1941, but the colony lasted until 1963 when it succumbed to drought conditions.

    Papercut! through May 25: Think of those snowflakes you cut from folded paper in preschool, and then imagine something 1000 times more intricate, like a lacy paper tree as tall as the real thing. The American Swedish Institute exhibit “Papercut! The Incredible Psaligraphy of Karen Bit Vejle” displays the delicate work of a modern Danish paper artist who has been credited with reviving the old art form. You will go home and reach for your scissors after seeing what she can do. The show also includes work by Minneapolis artist Sonja Peterson and there are some great paper art workshops for kids. Also American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Ave. Created by museum staff, the “Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice” includes a play area where kids can pretend to be paleontologists uncovering fossils. There are plenty of non scary reproductions, including a Troodon’s nest with eggs, and colorful habitats to explore, ranging from volcanoes to bogs to the rocky cliffs of ancient Alaska where researchers have identified the fossils of dinosaurs that live in cold climates.
