All quiet in Yankees camp

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 25, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees clubhouse is open, but no lineup is posted and no starting pitcher has been announced. The fifth-starter candidates say they haven’t heard anything yet regarding the final rotation spot. Everyone seems to be a little bit in the dark right now.

This afternoon, Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with a sharp single, two walks and a strikeout looking during a minor league game. He said his calf felt fine, and he expects to play again tomorrow. Said he has no doubt he’ll be ready for Opening Day.

    Why would the Mariners need a RH bat when they have the Jesus?

    ===============

    I’m thinking this question was ‘tongue-in-cheek’ but, just in case . . .

    because Jesus will be starting in AAA and, my projection of their starting lineup has:

    ~ SIX left
    ~ TWO switch
    ~ ONE right (Zunino)

    I wish I knew what Tanaka was tweeting about that takes so long to load the page.

    We seem to think that our backup catcher and non-starting, starting pitcher is going to bring a front line player. Uh, I think not.
    =========================================

    Yup, you ‘likely be’ right…

    Seems that if we really want a young & decent INFer via trade – we’ll have to part with one of out ‘huge studs’ like Mason Williams….

    He’s huge – always hear what a stud he’s going to be.

    We need a young & decent INFer…make a trade !

    Give up one of our ‘huge’ prospects that we won’t have a spot for anyway…a spot that can be filled in with Free Agency later

    (shudder the thought)

    Bravo!

    ————————–

    Makes sense – if they wanted a guy like Frandsen on the 40 they would add Scott Sizemore.

  7. CountryClub March 25th, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    So what are we going to nickname the rotation when Pineda gets announced as the 5th starter later today?

    The A team? The Vowels?

  8. Chip March 25th, 2014 at 3:46 pm

    This should get the SABR guys’ blood boiling: The Rockies are better off without center fielder Dexter Fowler because he “isn’t tough enough,” opines Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post. (Fowler, of course was dealt to the Astros. As presented in my offseason review for the club, I have a different take on the subject of Fowler’s departure from Colorado.) Though Kiszla initially credited Fowler with having “the determination to grind through pain” in mid-August of last year, he apparently adjusted his analysis after the 28-year-old missed twenty games late in the season with ongoing hand and wrist injuries. Manager Walt Weiss effectively pushed Fowler out of town, says Kiszla, because the latter “was not the kind of player Weiss needs on a team that must grind out victories in the National League West.” Apparently referring obliquely to Fowler, Weiss emphasized the need for players “to compete and grind and play with grit,” while assistant GM Bill Geivett explained that the manager “has got to feel comfortable in the weapons he has to attack the other team.”

    ==========================

    Figures.
    JG loves Nunez.
    So instead of trying to get a ML pro that hits .300+ against LHP – AND – can actually catch & throw the ball….we get Nunez.
    Really FO; not getting him to replace Nunez is simply awful.
    (unless he’s injured)

    Better have something else cooking, Joe & Cash !
    (we’re waiting very patiently)

    Indians announce that Carlos Santana will be their regular 3b and primary BUC — might I suggest a lot of bunts to 3b…

  11. Chip March 25th, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    UpState – With Ryan hurt the Yankees have no choice but to take Nunez as a BU at SS. So the question becomes is Frandsen worth taking over say, Dean Anna? Maybe, but if you’re going to go that route, you might as well just take Scott Sizemore instead.

  12. Mottsx March 25th, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    There are so many roster cuts coming this week. I’m sure there will be a pick up coming.

  13. blake March 25th, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    Dean Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez

  14. blake March 25th, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    @BryanHoch: Adam Warren is tonight’s Yankees starter.

    Phelps was supposed to start

  15. Russell Munson March 25th, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    “Dean Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez”

    Jose Molina is a better option at SS than Nunez.

    =========================
    I see the angle…but it’s so frustrating that we still have Nunez as a part of the team going forward.
    He’s flat-out terrible…..probably cannot find a worse fielder in MLB.
    When he’s really needed with a decent AB (see RISP) – he totally craps his pants !

    (check out his RISP numbers)

    UGGGGGH !

    He’s not average – he’s Waaaaaay under average – and we should be able to put together something to get someone who’s not a bottom-feeder for that ML slot !

  17. blake March 25th, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    Jose Molina is a better option at SS than Nunez.”

    Well he would have less range but better hands and a more accurate arm

  18. CountryClub March 25th, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    Phelps will most likely start working out of the pen so that he gets used to it before the season starts.

  19. UpState March 25th, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    blake March 25th, 2014 at 3:53 pm
    Dean Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez
    =========================================

    Anna Nicole Smith is a better option at SS than Nunez

  20. sammiejohnson March 25th, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    “Dean Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez”

    Mary Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez.

  21. UpState March 25th, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    “Dean Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez”

    Mary Anna is a better option at SS than Nunez.
    ===========================

    Mary, the good and nimble fairy of Nottingham Forest, is a better option at SS than Nunez.

    @LoHudYankees: Welp, there ya go RT @M_Marakovits: Michael Pineda will be the Yankees 5th starter #Yankees

  23. blake March 25th, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Another Yankee fake 5th starter competition in the books

    Another Yankee fake 5th starter competition in the books
    ————-

    Eh, wasn’t fake. Pineda just looked better.

  25. RadioKev March 25th, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Mark Feinsand ?@FeinsandNYDN 5m

    Pineda has no innings limitation this season according to Girardi.

    Well OK, then…

  26. Doreen March 25th, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    Not “fake,” per se. But definitely, they wanted it to be Pineda’s spot to lose. Which means, he would have had to have been injured or totally incompetent to lose it.

    The Yankees competitions are set up with a favorite in mind.

    Now, if Pineda had really stunk it up, and Phelps performed the way he did and still did not get the 5th starter job, that is something that I would be -itching about.

  27. austinmac March 25th, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    They will have Phelps practice out of the pen. It makes me wonder if that means Warren is going to be sent down.
