Spring Game 7: Yankees vs. Orioles

Jacoby EllsburyYANKEES (4-2)
Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Brian McCann C
Brian Roberts 2B
Francisco Cervelli DH
Kelly Johnson 3B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Zoilo Almonte LF
Corban Joseph 1B

RHP David Phelps (0-0, 4.50)

ORIOLES (2-2)
David Lough CF
Jemile Weeks 2B
Delmon Young DH
Steve Clevenger C
Steve Pearce 1B
Ryan Flaherty SS
Francisco Peguero RF
Quintin Berry LF
Cord Phelps 3B

LHP Wei-Yin Chen (0-0, 0.00)

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: First night game of the year. Temperatures will dip into the 60s. Brrrrr!

UMPIRES: HP Seth Buckminster, 1B Eric Cooper, 2B Mark Carlson, 3B Anthony Johnson

WHAT TO WATCH: There’s actually a reason to stick around for this one. Scott Sizemore will make his Yankees debut in the late innings (he’s a legitimate big league roster candidate) and Matt Thornton should make his debut in the fourth inning (he’s basically locked in as the team’s top left-handed reliever). Brian McCann will also get a late at-bat or two. There’s also Eduardo Nunez trying to show he can play defense at third base. If you’re into spring training curiosities, early spring standout Yangervis Solarte — mostly a utility infielder — is getting a start in left field. He’s been terrific so far.

RIVERA HONORED TOMORROW: On Wednesday, Mariano Rivera will receive a national Jefferson Award for “Outstanding Community Service by a Professional Athlete” at the Pierre Hotel in New York. Other athletes to have received the award in the past include Peyton Manning, Hank Aaron and Pat LaFontaine.

OFF THE BENCH: C Gary Sanchez, 1B Francisco Arcia, 2B Scott Sizemore, SS Dean Anna, 3B Zelous Wheeler, LF Ramon Flores, CF Mason Williams, RF Antoan Richardson, DH Brian McCann

OUT OF THE BULLPEN: Matt Thornton, Brian Gordon, Cesar Cabral, Chris Leroux, Chase Whitley and Preston Claiborne

UPDATE, 7:13 p.m.: Ground balls are nice. David Phelps allowed back-to-back singles, but he’s out of the first inning unscathed because of a 4-6-3 double play and a relatively routine grounder to shortstop. Ryan was shading toward second base and had to charge the ball, but it made it look simple.

UPDATE, 7:36 p.m.: Phelps pitches out of trouble again in the second inning, and now Roberts has started the bottom of the second with an infield single. That’s the Yankees first hit.

UPDATE, 7:40 p.m.: That’s Cervelli! The best bet to be the Yankees backup catcher just wen yard, a solo homer for a 1-0 Yankees lead (Nunez hit into a double play immediately before). Ryan has followed with a single.

UPDATE, 7:46 p.m.: Three straight singles have given the Yankees another run herein the second inning. Ryan, then Russ Canzler, then — who else? — Yangervis Solarte.

UPDATE, 7:59 p.m.: Matt Thornton thrown right into the fire. He comes in with a runner at first base here in the third inning. Phelps allowed a leadoff triple this inning. That runner scored on a ground out to short. Phelps is finished after a strikeout and walk. He went 2.2 innings, one run on five hits.

UPDATE, 8:14 p.m.: Thornton came in to get one hitter. He finished off the third inning, now Gordon is in to pitch the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:29 p.m.: Brian Gordon and Chris Leroux have done their part to keep this game moving. Each pitched a 1-2-3 inning. We’re into the fifth inning, Yankees still leading 2-1.

    I am afraid Jete will be a double play machine if they keep him in the 2 hole

  8. luis March 4th, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Gutsy pitch for that K

  9. luis March 4th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

  14. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    I finally got mlb.tv going on my kindle… I think I’m way behind live action. I’m showing bottom of 2nd, 2 outs – Ryan at bat. How far behind am I?

  15. luis March 4th, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    Hello Glenn,

    You are about the same with me…

  16. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    Judging by recent comments, maybe I’m not behind at all. Sorry about that

  17. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 7:44 pm

    Phelps looks fine.

  20. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    Hello Tom,

    Mechanically speaking he is a little out of balance…His timing appears to be a little off…But he is a fighter and it shows

  21. tomingeorgia March 4th, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    luis,
    Stay the course, as the Yankees will. You’re in my thoughts everyday. Keep safe.

  22. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:12 pm

    Hey primo!

    I’m in and out here, on kitchen/other detail. How does Phelps look?

    How did we get our runs?

  23. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    Cervelli homer with no man on bases..The second I didn’t see it, sorry…Phelps has done a fair job..His mechanics are a little off..But he is making the pitches to get out of trouble…He has heart and the mindset of a bulldog…He will be fine.

    Hey Tom,

    The next couple of days will be critical…Thanks bro, I know

  24. exiledintampa March 4th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Solarte had an RBI single on a grounder to left.

  25. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    Tanaka tells the Front Office that they need to acquire another hitter and another pitcher after laying out 175 million large for him… Oh time out, that was a different free agent, a far more expensive ( 245 million large ) free agent. Eyes balls are rolling in Seattle .

  26. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    thanks luis, exiled…

    primo… vaya con Dios

  27. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    Pat M,

    ???? Why does that have any bearings on this thread?

  28. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    Gracias amigo

  29. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    “Because that’s how special he was ” to quote you…He wasn’t and isn’t this God-like player that too many here keep banging out everyday. Responsible journalism let’s say.

  30. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    I wonder when Sanchez will get into this game. McCann is moving to DH at some point in this game, no?

    As for Cano: it was a dialog and not some sort of ultimatum, so without the context, why bother mentioning it?

  31. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 8:36 pm

    None of them are God-like, but neither are they demons, which seems to be how all former Yankees are treated here.

  32. jmills March 4th, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Hi luis, alfred, I watched that lecture on irony.

  33. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Really?

    Can you say non sequitur? :roll:

  34. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    I keep saying that Cervelli is growing onto a very good catcher. i wanted him to have job this season, but I understand the FO desire to add a big bat in anticipation of losing Cano.

  35. jmills March 4th, 2014 at 8:39 pm

    Pat M, thanks for the music, Chuck Berry puLling out Linda Ronstadt. Keith Richards and George Harrison as well.

  36. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Well Pat M…I saw a play that he would have made easily ( a chopper hit by Roberts ), that turn out to be a IF hit ln the hands of a lesser player…If that is giving Cano a God-like treatment, then I am Japanese.

    I too thought that a 10 year deal was crazy..Also, I was for trading him or extend him earlier..So I don’t understand your constant banging of Cano’s character…You wanted to stir the soup?

  37. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    mills,

    lol! But you didn’t need it. By the way, I guess “Shakespere” was just a passing fad of the times. Spellings of the name went in and out of vogue in different periods.

    Or maybe it was just a wink and a nod to the Earl of Oxford advocates :)

  38. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    Cervy is pretty good, no doubt.

    The kiddies Flores and Mason are in the OF. Is Sanchez behind the plate?

  39. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    yankeefem….I call total BS on that comment. The issue I think that rubbed Old Time Yankee fans perhaps was the way it all came down. Plus the 10 years 300 million dollar figure that was thrown down. I felt great disappointment when Reggie was forced out in 1982 and so were the fans in NYC. Trust me Robinson Cano’s return to The Stadium will be far different that when Reg returned. Besides, Guidry isn’t around to groove one for Cano. Then again Cano ain’t no Reggie Jackson

  40. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 8:44 pm

    jmills….Check out Ronstadt’s cover of ” Hurts So Bad ” She was in her day in another world and lapped the field. No stage theatrics just solid signing with a solid band…..Heck, The Eagles were her backup band at one time

  41. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 8:47 pm

    If Tex gets hurt this spring, I’d put McCann at first base and let Cervelli and Romine catch, with Murphy getting experience at AAA, and Sanchez at AA.

  42. jmills March 4th, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    Linda Ronstadt is just one of those singers you can’t have a problem with. Gentle yet a powerhouse :)

  43. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    I saw on another site that they already have a nickname for Gary Sanchez. Not sure why though–they called him “Dirty.” Anyone know?

  44. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    Pat, I was talking about Cano’s comment to Seattle management. I don’t pretend to know what went down in NY. But Cash’s “Cano loves the money” wasn’t exactly a good opening line/negotiating ploy, more of a typical Cash salvo. Just like saying Jeet was just a ballplayer, etc. etc. I don’t want to belabor this, but I am not a newbie Yankee fan and both I and fans older than I are very sorry to see Cano go. As for the fans at the Stadium, many of them take their lead from what the newspapers tell them to think, but I will be at that game and I guarantee you many fans with give Cano a standing “O” while the cameras and audience focuses on the booing. And I wouldn’t compare Reggie to Cano.

  45. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    If Tex gets hurt this spring

    ——————

    I’m afraid Tex’s wrist may rear its ugly head again… just a gut feeling. Hope I’m wrong

  46. luis March 4th, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    You should listen to Tar and do what you said to Tar that you would do… Revisit your stand…Yankee management didn’t acted very good either…So please

    Dean Anna needs to fight off close pitches on a full count. Down looking.

  57. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    Reggie/Cano.

    Yeah, that comparison really just jumps out at me. (see: I-RON-Y)

    Much harder to find a .900 OPS GG 2B than a slugging corner OF.

    That’s about all I have to say on that, because it ain’t worthy of discussion.

    I did too but I logged out and back on and everything is A-ok (fingers crossed)

  59. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    luis…My post was simply to showcase what Yankee fans might have re-acted had Tanaka made the same comments about needing additional players after laying out all that coin on him. Let’s make one thing real clear, I’m not a fan of the owners or ownership 90 % of the time because in the end it’s usually about the money. It’s the perception that irks people and Robbie left town rubbing many the wrong way once you remove the fandom from the equation…..My comment to Tar about revisiting my viewpoint was about the racial aspect to this perception which I agree has merit. But this doesn’t apply to the multitude of Yankee fans

  60. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    chicken, the odds are that you are right about Teix, but let’s hope for the best.

  61. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    Bojo, that’s a new one on me.

    Is Whitley a reliever or a starter?

  64. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 9:01 pm

    Jap, you’re far smarter than that. Reggie carried ballclubs for stretches of time. He was a hump, but the dude delivered. Cano is real good, not far to him to be compared to Reg

    Boy – you could ask that about any Yankees pitching prospect – idk

  66. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 9:01 pm

    God forbid Cano should want to improve the team he’s playing on.

    I’m sure Seattle fans appreciate him putting pressure on his front office.

  67. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    Flaherty is going to be good for Orioles.

  69. luis March 4th, 2014 at 9:04 pm

    Pat M,

    I get it…Still, I was just commenting on a play that reminded me of him… Not to bang over the issue again

  70. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Whitley did both, but was starting at the end of the SWB season. Think they will see what he can do out of the RP though at least in ST.

  71. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Pat M – why don’t you take a look at Cano’s numbers last season in high leverage; he really tried to carry the Yankees, but fact is Brian Cashman and Hal have so bungled this team since 2010, that Cano was all alone in that lineup, and still crushed.

    I don’t even know where that comparison came from??

    Hey, I was there in ’77, sitting in right-field, for that matter; I know what Jackson was all about. He was a lefty COF who liked the big spot. What does Reggie have to do with Cano?

  72. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    Hi chicken, aside from having to get up far too early tomorrow morning, doing fine. How are you? :)

  81. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 9:09 pm

    luis,

    Your comparison made sense!

    Furthermore, the butt-hurt people about Cano around here aren’t telling me not to mention the guy – he’s the greatest 2B in Yankee history, and it isn’t close, and he was here for nine years.

    It’s a baseball fan site, not a cult or Stepford, Conn.

    Cano got that dough because he’s a friggin’ superstar, not one of Cashman’s dumpster dives.

    Guys as non pareil as Cano is at his position get paid. Good for him.

  82. jmills March 4th, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    We’re all having a good time, non?

He’ll be crying to bolt from Seattle in 4 years. Oh I know this because my neighbor is a pilot for Alaska Airlines and went to University of Washington and is all about Seattle sports. Well except for the Oak City Thunder , the Supersonics

  89. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    JAP–

    Look up Joe Gordon and TOny Lazzeri numbers, as well as Alfonso Soriano’s while a Yankee. Cano was a very good player…a star for about 3 years…but he didn;t put in enough time here to be the best ever in Yankee history IMO.

  93. GregD March 4th, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    JAP—–no I missed it, I will go back and look…….I know Sanchez has improved, I just noticed that he turned his head away from the ball when he went down to block it……just looked strange

  94. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    ———-

    Good point…instead of a broad jump maybe it was a triple jump

  95. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    I often wondered how Soriano would have ranked among Yankee all-time 2B if he wasn’t traded for ARod. I think he would have been the best of all.

  96. GregD March 4th, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    I like Flores….he has a nice swing

  97. yankeefeminista March 4th, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    GregD, very nice hitter. Would love to see him show a little more pop this year, so that he has a better shot at playing a corner. He isn’t really a CF, defensively.

    BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    JAP–

    Look up Joe Gordon and TOny Lazzeri numbers, as well as Alfonso Soriano’s while a Yankee. Cano was a very good player…a star for about 3 years…but he didn;t put in enough time here to be the best ever in Yankee history IMO.
    ///

    Don’t need to look them up, and the anecdotal on Lazzeri is, despite similarities with Cano (he hit around .300 /had power), he was strictly an offensive 2B.

    My father would talk about Lazzeri’s errors as a defender once in a while. Maybe if you combined Lazzeri and Richardson you’d approximate Cano.

    Gordon could turn the DP but did not have Cano’s overall hitting ability or raw skills.

    Ask Hankflorida who’s better – the man saw Gordon play.

    Cano is better.

  100. BoJo March 4th, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    LF in YS was 457ft away when Gordon played. He still hit pretty well, and stole bases too. Supposedly was a better glove too.

    JAP—–no I missed it, I will go back and look…….I know Sanchez has improved, I just noticed that he turned his head away from the ball when he went down to block it……just looked strange

    I missed the play. This is a big year for him defensively. We didn’t get to see much last year, but the bat is so good.

  103. GregD March 4th, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    JAP, well he will be in AA this year and then prob one year at AAA so he will have time to develop, the Yanks don’t need to rush him

  104. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    Bojo – I’m never going to get to see Gordon, but I have to defer to my Dad’s accounts of these players. Based on my father’s memories, and what I see from Cano, who goes to his right like nobody’s business and who, as Hankflorida is fond of saying, has off the charts ball off bat movement to where the ball will be, along with the arm and the downright silly hand-eye and butter soft hands on hard hit balls….. and the bat, etc. I’m pretty confident that calling Cano the greatest 2B in Yankee history isn’t hyperbole. He’s been here nine years, not exactly a cup of coffee in pinstripes.

  105. J. Alfred Prufrock March 4th, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    GregD, agree. Let him develop. Just don’t trade that bat! :)

  107. Pat M. March 4th, 2014 at 9:37 pm

    I was at a Laker game a few years back and I happened to be in the next suite from Aaron Boone and Nomar Garcipara. Both guys were out of the game and doing TV stuff and I asked both of them what is harder on the ego. Being traded , leaving as a free agent without an offer ??? Clearly shipping out without an offer trumped being traded although both are tough. Some guys really don’t want to leave the club they came up with and many times will take less dough if the situation is good and the offer is fair.. Agents are a real strong presence in a players head. I remember SJ telling me that it’s almost hypnotic the power a strong Rep has over his client. See Carl Crawford, he knew that Boston was the wrong move just for the additional year and 18 million. He wanted The Angels

  108. chicken_stanley March 4th, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    Sizemore’s stance and swing reminds me of Magglio Ordonez…. Not saying he’s the same type hitter; just reminds me of him

  109. Hankflorida March 4th, 2014 at 9:40 pm

    Bojo. I saw Joe Gordon play before he was traded to the Indians and know about Push em up Tony from my father. Cano had enough time with the Yankees to prove his worth. Based on what I saw in hitting and fielding, he was the best Yankee second basemen of all time. My Allstar Yankee team would be an outfield of Ruth, Mantle and DiMag, an infield of Berra, Arod, Jeter, Cano and Gehrig with Reggie as DH. My bench would be Rolf, Rizzuto, Dickey, and then I have to think about the 13th guy who played with the Yanks close to ten years.

    lol Pat, but I don’t think I’m outnumbered on how good this Cano fellow is.

    Had they re-signed him, this team would definitely play into deep October.

    You guys are tired of hearing it? I’m so so fatigued from the people who call the shots for this team. luis is right – the handling of this thing was amateur stuff. If they were hell bent on smearing the guy through lip-syncing houseplant Kay, why didn’t they deal him to Texas and get something for him?

    They fumbled away their best player: twice. We’re all supposed to admire their “hardline”? Congratulate them for letting him walk and get nothing in return?? They could have extended him, so he never got to FA. They could have traded him, if they knew they weren’t going to bring him back.

    How do they continue to snow everybody? They’re not good enough to steer this team.

    Tanaka tells the Front Office that they need to acquire another hitter and another pitcher after laying out 175 million large for him… Oh time out, that was a different free agent, a far more expensive ( 245 million large ) free agent. Eyes balls are rolling in Seattle .

    Sounds like Cano is already experiencing the realities of choosing the Mariners.

    I asked a guy on PPP, who said he’s watched both Avelino and Andujar in EST, to give us some details on how they look. We’ll get a chance to see at least Avelino in April down in Lakewood; maybe Andujar goes along.

    Andujar, especially how he finished last year, is really getting talked up. The guy on PPP is convinced they’re both major leaguers. Can’t wait to see them live, and I hope we ultimately see that left side on the same infield as Anderson Feliz, if he’s back in the pink.

  123. mnmboys March 4th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    I really appreciated what Cano did while he was here. As a long time Yankee fan and season ticket holder I will boo the heck out of him when he comes back. If you want to be a Yankee to have your agent make it happen. The Yanks offered more AAV. He probably could have got some 8th year option to get him to $200 mil. Incentives, endorsements, etc could have closed the gap further. He choose the money and the years over being a lifetime Yankee and enshrined in monument park. To that I say “BOOOOOO!!!”

    mnmboys – No, I wouldn’t, because given his smoothness and lack of stress to his joints, non-violent swing mechanics, etc., I believe he’ll age well, so if some mischance took hold, it would still have been a good calculated risk that he would age well. In his twilight, he’d be a perfect DH/1B type.

    . I was all for the rebuilding of the club and buy The Cuban outfielders and once again I was ripped by the Jerk guy.

    Thats funny because I wanted the cuban outfielders too. The reason I ripped you is that you were heavily against signing Darvish, who was a much better bet than any of the cuban players. I wanted Darvish AND the Cubans because I recognized that the cost to acquire them is nothing to the Yankees and their upside was tremendous as well as potentially cost efficient.

I returned my Breville Elite to BB and B and got the Nutribullet 900. I had a long talk with the manager there earlier in the day. He was very knowledgeable about juicing and said for what I want to do (intake the pulp as part of the drink), the Nutribullet would be more than adequate. I’m now watching the DVD by Joe Cross. BB and B gave it free with the juicer.

    Some thoughts on the game:

    –I thought Phelps looked good. Like the action on his curve. He seems like a better than average 5th starter to me. Keep the team in the game.

    –The Jeter non-ground ball watch continues. He actually made some progress today. I believe that was his first foul ball that he hit in the air. So, go Jeet!

    –It would be really nice if Cervelli could stay healthy this year. He had a good ST last year too. But of course the season didn’t end well.

    –One pitch for Thornton?

    –Nice catch by Williams, but watch the replay. Very poor jump. When we get that player tracking system online I suppose this will all become very obvious.

    –Not at all impressed with Claiborne. Am I wrong, but wasn’t he around 93/94 last spring? I seem to recall that because he looked then to be a lot faster than Montgomery. Was around 90/91 today. Overall, underwhelmed by entire bullpen. Very few big arms.

    Pat M, selective memory or you only read a couple of people on here. I was one of the few (two people?)who liked the RS dumping off AGon and Co. to reload. I was for selling off Grandy and have said repeatedly that if we didn’t extend Cano and felt his market value would be too high to match then we should have dealt him. And lots of people on here were all for getting Darvish and the Cubans.

    And how are you comparing Cano a nine year Yankee and a prospective hall of famer to AJax and Montero, who were just babies??? As for system guys, there are maybe two or three that people are bullish for and hundreds that they are not… And homegrown is better when you watch it develop and it becomes your core. You felt that way about Hughes b/c you watched him from a pup. Just the way it is.

    Fem. I came to fully understand the nature of the business of baseball once Bobby Murcer was traded. I not only watched him come through the system, I got to meet him and play a few games with him. But the FO makes moves to improve the club and they have to live with these decisions because their jobs are on the line. Unlike bloggers on the Yankee sites or baseball sites across the country. It’s easy to pop off about this and that but if your job was or is on the line I suspect many here would think things out just a tad more. Like paying 15 million for Stephen Drew to start with….

    Pat, I get that, and it is all the more reason that the front office should make better decisions especially for the long term health of the club. You have to admit some of the decisions they have made over the past few years are highly questionable and have cost them, not saved them money. No one is debating that they have tough personnel and financial decisions to make, but that doesn’t mean we can’t disagree with the choices they make.

    Supposedly, Archer pitched very well for the Rays vs. Sux. I am sorry that game wasn’t televised.

    “Speaking of misheard lyrics, I read an article recently about the most commonly misheard lyrics… Amazingly, one was Purple Haze by Hendrix – many thought the lyrics were: “excuse me, while I kiss this guy””

    Fem, Archer’s highlights is on MLB.com in case if you haven’t watched it.

  178. Jerkface March 4th, 2014 at 10:54 pm

    He’ll be good but he’s not this super pitcher that you’ve been touting.

    ??? What have I touted? I don’t think you understand what I write or you imagine I am saying something I am not, like where you think I did not want to sign the Cuban players. I’ve said all along that Tanaka lacks the upside of Darvish but can be a good pitcher in the majors, should be able to debut as good as Darvish, Dice-K, or Kuroda did.

    Oh, one last thought:

    Gotta give a shout out to my man Willie Randolph, the second best second baseman we ever had. He could hit 280-310, walked a lot, field, and had occasional opposite field power.

    Cano, Randolph, Gordon, in that order. (Lazzeri, followed by Richardson, I guess).

    Goodnight indeed!

    Err… Chicken! new thread.. Chicken!

  186. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 4th, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    chicken – more misheard lyrics. In the song Good King Wenceslas, I always thought it was this:

    Good King Wenceslas looked out, on the feast of Stephen
    When the snow lay round about, deep in Chrisbaneden (as opposed to “deep and crisp and even,” the correct lines.)

    I think I always thought that Chrisbaneden was a place, and I never bothered questioning it!

    But here’s the best one of all. One day I was riding in the car with one of my sisters. She had a convertible and it was a gorgeous spring day, so we were riding with the top down. I remember having a scarf on my head to keep the wind from blowing it around, and I felt on top of the world. A song came on the radio, and I started singing it at the top of my lungs:

    Lady Sinclair, de Versaille!

    I remember my sister slowly turning her head and saying to me, almost in disbelief, “What the F did you just say?” (she said the F word). I looked at her and said “why”? She said to me, “Sing that line again.” So I did.

    Lady Sinclair, de Versaille!

    She looked at me and started laughing and said “It’s Les Bicyletees de Belsize , you idiot!”

    Boy did I feel stupid!

    No trish….is there a site you recommend that is free?

    No

  190. blake March 5th, 2014 at 7:10 am

    I think Tanaka can be as good as Darvish and maybe better if he can improve his breaking ball…..he doesn’t have the assortment of pitches or the velocity that Yu does…..but he has better fastball command and I don’t think Darvish has any pitch that’ll play as well in MLB as Tanakas split.

    But even if he isn’t as good as Darvish…..that’s ok….Darvish is one of the 5 best pitchers in the league

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.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
