Tanaka: “I’m sure I will be amped up a little bit”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 04, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Masahiro Tanaka

“I’m sure I will be amped up a little bit, but not to the point where I’m worried about that.”

That’s Masahiro Tanaka, through a translator, talking about his emotions leading into tonight’s major-league debut. And it’s pretty easy to take his word for it. Perhaps the most surprising thing about his high-profile arrival with the Yankees has been just how low-key he’s been about the whole thing. Tanaka is the largest international free agent signing in history. For two months he’s been interviewed nearly every day by two sets of media. Each spring training appearance was treated like a global event.

It seems the only person who’s been underwhelmed has been Tanaka himself.

“I feel honored that I’m getting this sort of attention,” he said. “For me, it’s just going up on the mound and trying to get outs.”

Masahiro TanakaTanaka’s been famous for a long time. He’s pitched in huge, attention-getting games since high school. He carried the pressure of an undefeated record for a contending team all last season. Yes, he’s in a new league and part of a new culture and pitching to better hitters, but he’s been through all the other stuff before.

And it shows.

“From the first time you meet him, he carries himself very professionally,” Brian McCann said. “He carries himself that he’s been there and done that. He came in to camp, he fit right in, and he put up zeroes. … He’s pitched some big things over in Japan — basically since he’s been 16, 17 years old. I expect (tonight) to be no different.”

So far, Tanaka’s been excellent. He led the Yankees with 26 strikeouts this spring. He had a 2.14 ERA and was named the top rookie in camp. He was especially good in his final outing, a 10-strikeout performance a week ago.

“From what I see from these exhibition games, I don’t think he has any problems,” fellow Japanese starter Hiroki Kuroda said. “He has the stuff to pitch through a full season.”

Tanaka flew a head to Toronto before yesterday’s game, so he’s had a normal night of sleep. He said he’s not superstitious, and doesn’t have any sort of routine or ritual to make himself feel comfortable in a city he’d never visited until now. It’s basically just another day, just another start. If Tanaka’s treating it as anything more than that, it certainly hasn’t shown.

“I thought he adapted to our ways well,” Joe Girardi said. “He just kind of went with the program. Understanding that there must be something to this and Kuroda’s doing it and other guys have made adjustments, and he just kind of went with it. … We’ve seen him in spring training, but you also want to see what a guy’s like when the real bright lights turn on. We expect him to do just fine, but you still want to see it.”

    I haven’t looked at the other posts – do we have a Solarte vs. Johnson controversy yet?

    “I haven’t looked at the other posts – do we have a Solarte vs. Johnson controversy yet?”

    I still would rather have option C.

    Solarte had a good day…..chances are he’s still a back up in the majors and Johnson I know is a back up.

    Those 2 might can hold down the fort until July though where the Yanks will refuse to pay the prices for a 3B

    I didn’t get to pick his number…..he just got 8. 8 is ok…..

    —————-

    My nephew wanted 30 because he’s obsessed with Marty Brodeur. He keeps trying to get my mom to call him Martin Brodeur instead of his real name, but she’s not having it.

  5. 86w183 April 4th, 2014 at 9:11 am

    Can’t imagine a Solarte/Johnson controversy… but we’ve had stranger debates here.

    Really eager to see Tanaka against what is a pretty darn good lineup.

    Proud of Nova finding a way to survive with virtually nothing. That’s what 18+ game winners do, earn wins 3-to-5 times a year when their “stuff” is lacking

  6. Chip April 4th, 2014 at 9:11 am

    Blake -

    I’m sticking to my spring training prediction – the Yankee 3b when the season ends will be Aramis Ramirez.

    Stayed away from the game thread and actually enjoyed watching the Yankees without having to pick through juvenile ridiculous garbage posts. I don’t know if they come from total insecurity about having their team lose games (a real problem in itself) or just a total lack of being in touch with reality, but either way it’s nice not to have to read the stuff.

    Very much looking forward to seeing our latest acquisition do his thing. I think that is going to be exciting beyond belief.

    :)

    “My nephew wanted 30 because he’s obsessed with Marty Brodeur. He keeps trying to get my mom to call him Martin Brodeur instead of his real name, but she’s not having it.”

    I don’t know who that is. Sounds like a hockey player.

  10. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:16 am

    Chip,
    that’s possible but only probelm with that is the Brewers might be in the race.

    ********************************************************************

    Mine will be the phasing out of the DH, accompanied by expansion of MLB roster to 26 or 27 players. Then I’d mandate each team host a day/nite doubleheader once a month, taking a full week off the season.

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 4th, 2014 at 9:20 am

    “Those 2 might can hold down the fort until July though where the Yanks will refuse to pay the prices for a 3B”

    If I knew how to write a cat noise, I would put it here. I think your Drew claws might be showing a little bit.

    The Yanks are paying the prices for a 3B. They are paying part of Arod’s salary, and they are paying Johnson and Solarte.

    If we didn’t have the possibility of the highest paid players in the league still owning 3B I think your case would be a lot stronger.

    No decent 3B appeared to be willing to come for one year. And the Yankees shouldn’t have to pay a hefty price for a player who will end up potentially sitting after this year.

  13. Shame Spencer April 4th, 2014 at 9:20 am

    trisha – Last night’s game thread was juvenile but for other reasons lol… it was LoHud After Dark. PG-13 for sure.

  14. pkyankfan69 April 4th, 2014 at 9:21 am

    Warren was particularly impressive last night… Makes me wonder if his stuff is going to translate better to a late inning role than Phelps who might be best suited for the Ramiro Mendoza role… Of course its only been 3 games against the Stros but the BP, an area where there were a ton of preseason questions, might end up being a strength. I was never worried about Drob closing but I was worried about the bridge to him. With Burawa and J-Ram as very possible in season additions, the BP really has a chance to be great this year.

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 4th, 2014 at 9:21 am

    “If I’m ever made commish of baseball my first act will be to ban caps with white bills.”

    Mine would be to get electronic balls and strikes calls behind the plate.

    “trisha – Last night’s game thread was juvenile but for other reasons lol… it was LoHud After Dark. PG-13 for sure.”

    Well as that stuff offends my sensibilities as much as the other stuff, I’m happy I was otherwise occupied.

    ;)

  17. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 9:27 am

    I do think Warren’s stuff is better than Phelps. He regularly gets it to 93 where Phelps is at 90. He may be a very important piece. Frankly, Phelps has always struck me as a marginal sort of pitcher.

    Burawas struck out two in a perfect inning last night. Montgomery also had a perfect inning.

    CHOO CHOO!!!!!!

  20. pkyankfan69 April 4th, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Aram is a BEAST

    2014: .500/.500/.600/1.100 – 3 RBI

    I appreciate your optimism, but I think those numbers (save the RBIs) might come down a touch.

  22. Shame Spencer April 4th, 2014 at 9:38 am

    Warren looked crazy good last night.. I started to see a lot more movement from his pitches in the times I caught him this spring, but his stuff was very sharp last night.

  23. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 4th, 2014 at 9:38 am

    austin, I hope you got to see the links I left for you, having to do with all the pundits who have picked the Yankees to do well this season, as well as those who picked them last season. You had opined that you wanted the experts to see your team as good and didn’t think the pundits backing was there. Well, you got your wish!

    ;)

  24. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:39 am

    “Nah – even with the addition of Garza they don’t have the pitching.”

    I think they might to grab a WC…..that 2nd WC keeps marginal teams in the race longer. I don’t know enough about the Brewers system to know if they have somebody that could step in in July if they traded Aram……I just don’t expect them to be out of the race by then.

  25. Jarak April 4th, 2014 at 9:40 am

    If he has a good season watch Solarte start at 2nd or Short next year. This opening series continues trend from second half of last year when Yanks had trouble winning series from lowly teams like the White Sox etc.

  26. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:42 am

    I have never seen Warren’s CU anywhere close to as good as it was last night…..I just think he profiles better in the bullpen though because as a starter his FB is more 90/91 and straight…….if he can dial it up to 93 or so out of the pen he could be a great option there.

    I think for teams like the Yankees….it’s really smart to take some of these guys that profile as back end starters and make them relievers…….it’s better for the player too in a lot of cases. It saved Betances’s career…..and it could save Warren’s with regards to getting to the majors.

    There is no shame in a big leauge bullpen career…..they make a lot of money too.

  27. Chip April 4th, 2014 at 9:44 am

    Boomer apologized for his comments about Daniel Murphy…Carton didn’t. He apologized that the story got as big as it did.

    The cynic in me believes that this apology was borne more out a realization that it would impact his charity than because he was actually sorry.

  28. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Francesa won’t apologize….he will double or triple down on stupid today.

  29. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:46 am

    I may have to try and get down to Charleston this year…..that team is loaded with hopefuls. Torrens at full season ball at age 17 is super aggressive……I love it.

  30. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Blake-

    Only trouble is we don’t need any more catchers.

    We are loaded w them.

    A trade makes sense.

    We should be dealing from areas of strength trying to fill areas of weakness.

  31. Tar April 4th, 2014 at 9:53 am

    This narrative that Joe was “so smart” because he knows when to rest his players is way overblown. I think Joe has been pretty bad in that respect over the years. Maybe he’s changed this year but we shall see.

    I do think he rested Ells because of injury, He got Cervelli in there vs a LH ( next there are Rh) and With KJ why the hell would he want to rest Jhim 2 games into the season? No that was more that he wanted to see what he had in Solarte.

  32. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:54 am

    MTU,
    catchers are good currency…..teams always need them. Now would I rather have a 17 year old potential stud SS…..sure…..but you take what you can get I guess. Agree though that they should be looking to trade some catching depth for infielders if possible.

  33. Tar April 4th, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Blake agree re: Warren last night. He looked great, pitched with way more confidence than I remember for him.

  34. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Trisha,

    It is good to know my 92 win forecast was not just from being a fan. I’ll take all the support I can get.

    Truthfully, much depends on Teixiera. I am very happy that Derek can run and play. They really need Teixiera’s power. Time, as always, will tell. My expertise on tendon sheath surgical recovery is a bit light.

  35. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Girardi is one of the 5 or 6 best managers in baseball IMO. I think he just wanted to give Ellsbury a day since he’s had the calf……you don’t put him in for defense in the 9th if he’s hurt…..you give him the whole day off.

    Girardi teams typically overachieve……they did last year….and they did in 2012 as well. I don’t get all the Girardi hate to be honest…..sure he does some things I disagree with and he irritates me sometimes…..but every single manager in baseball is going to do that from time to time.

    He’s really good with bullpens and he’s really good with finding rest for older players and keeping all 25 players involved……for a team like the Yankees I’m not sure who would be better to be honest.

    ——————–

    If I had to guess, I would put them as the 4th best team in the NL Central behind St. Louis, Pitt and Cincy. Throw in the team that’s second in the race between the Giants and Dodgers and possibly Arizona and either the Nats or Braves and I just don’t see how the Brewers keep pace.

  37. bbb51 April 4th, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Solarte swings like Gary Sheffield.

  38. blake April 4th, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Jeter probably won’t play tonight so I just want to prepare everyone……and he shouldn’t. He’s played 3 straight games and they are going to the turf in Toronto. Expect to see Anna at SS tonight.

  39. Chip April 4th, 2014 at 10:00 am

    I just find it very difficult to believe that both Cervelli and Romine will spend this entire season on the 40 man roster.

  40. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:00 am

    Chip,
    even if they don’t end up making the playoffs…..all they have to be is around a playoff spot in July and they may not want to trade their starting 3B for some B level prospect return…….he might end up being the Yanks 3B…..but I’m just not as sure they will trade him as some are

  41. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:01 am

    “I just find it very difficult to believe that both Cervelli and Romine will spend this entire season on the 40 man roster.”

    nobody must be willing to even offer a pulled pork sandwich for Romine……

  42. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    If Romine rides the pine at Scranton all season his value is gonna go in the toilet even farther…..they really should just get anything they can for him at this point.

    ———————–

    I agree – I think he was the DH last night but at some point something has to give. 5 catchers on a 40 man roster doesn’t make much sense.

    Either move Murphy to 1b/3b or deal Romine for whatever you can.

  44. SweetSpot April 4th, 2014 at 10:05 am

    The criticism of Girardi for his lineup last night is unfounded in my opinion and suggests a lack of big picture understanding of a myriad of issues.

    When you have no days off for two weeks, start the season on the road, play a series on turf, want to keep your bench players sharp, take into account who you want to catch certain pitchers, look at match-ups and righty-lefty realities and most importantly give your players enough periodic rest so they will be capable of playing at a high level in August and September . . . . Joe did what any good manager would do.

  45. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Blake-

    Catchers are good currency but only if you trade them.

    Otherwise they are just needless duplication.

    ;)

  46. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:08 am

    MTU,
    agreed…..I think the problem right now is that they aren’t getting the return they want for the catchers they have. They don’t really want to trade Sanchez or Murphy and nobody wants to give anything for Cervelli or Romine.

  47. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:09 am

    I mean you could make an argument they should have just DFA’d Romine instead of Nunez

  48. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:10 am

    Blake-

    Well then those guys don’t have much value do they.

    The idea is also to pump and dump.

    Yankees need to get better at it.

    Too much fruit rotting on the vine.

  49. Mottsx April 4th, 2014 at 10:12 am

    Should trade Nunie to Mets for one shake shack stand. That’s asking too much?

  50. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:12 am

    Blake-

    You could but it appears they soured on Nunez.

    If they wanted they could have put Turley on 60 Day.

    That way they would lost no one.

    True, but with Cervelli’s injury history it made sense to keep him. Especially if they want JR Murphy to play everyday and not sit.

    The Yankees need to do a better job of developing guys for trade purposes as well.

    They did a nice job w the Montero swap.

    Need to do more of it.

    Showcase then trade while value is high.

    The rub with D-Rob is that he might be one and done as the Yankees closer.

    If the Yankees see enough from Dellin Betances this year (and/or Danny Burawa and Jose Ramirez) the organization may decide to go with one of them as the closer next year rather than spend money to re-sign Robertson.

  57. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:21 am

    Chip-

    Romine is fine.

    He’s an ML-ready BUC.

    There are plenty more guys who need to be groomed to move.

    Most of them come w that designation form the get go.

    Take a look at all the relievers we have for example.

    And why are 3 good young arms occupying our BP ?

    Couldn’t one be spared as part of a trade ?

    Dig what I am saying ?

    Yankees are not making the most of their resources IMO.

    They need to get with it.

    You don’t get squat for guys lost to the rule 5

    ;)

  58. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:26 am

    I will give credit where credit is due though.

    Nice job by Eppler and co. finding Solarte and Anna.

    They are not he guys of the future though IMO.

    We’ll need more talent in the pipeline.

    And not at A ball.

  59. Shame Spencer April 4th, 2014 at 10:28 am

    The rub with D-Rob is that he might be one and done as the Yankees closer.

    —————–

    I could see it being in the realm of possibility but I kind of doubt it. I don’t think they hand the keys to Dellin next year when in all likelihood they can sign Roberts for a relatively short term commitment (3 years..?).

  60. blake April 4th, 2014 at 10:29 am

    What would an acceptable DRob extension look like right now? 3/30. I’d give him that right now.

  61. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:29 am

    Chip-

    So in your view a young talented closer just walks for nothing ?

    I don’t see that.

    It took several years of grooming for Robertson to get the chance.

    They are not going to trust that role to an unproven quantity over price IMO.

  62. Shame Spencer April 4th, 2014 at 10:30 am

    After that, if Dellin’s been good in as the EIG, they could move on from Robertson. Dellin wouldn’t be a full blown FA until 2020.

    Me too.. he might command more on the open market if he delivers the 35+ saves I expect him to, but I’d try to do that asap. It’s just one less hole to fill.

  64. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 10:31 am

    I have to believe the reason we still have all our catchers is no one has offered anything of real value. I bet the same is true for the three bullpen arms. Nothing about these guys make them unique or particularly desirable. Backups will get you backups. We have plenty of those guys already.

  65. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:31 am

    If Robertson proves himself this year he’ll get paid.

    Crazy to do otherwise.

  66. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:33 am

    Mac-

    Two points:

    1) If they are as bad as you say then the Yankees did a poor job utilizing their resources.

    2) I don’t think they are as undesirable as you make them out to be.

  67. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 10:39 am

    I think Robertson will succeed as a closer, but I feel confident the Yankees will make him prove it before they offer closers money.

    —————-

    Probably..but let’s say he’s doing as well as we’d expect by the ASB. Do you feel like that along with the last few years we’ve seen him is enough to make a decision on a potential extension?

  69. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 10:45 am

    MTU,

    I never said they were bad. Did I?

    If they had value, the Yankees would surely take advantage of their surplus to fill areas of need. They haven’t. That, I believe is much more likely than your belief the Yankees haven’t tried to get value for them.

    None of the guys to which you refer are particularly young and none have a proven track record. Every system has 26 year olds that have similar minor league histories.

    My simple question is this. Why would any team offer a starting player for a player that has been a mid-inning bullpen piece or a catcher who has never done more than backup?

    The Yankees have done a bad job on many fronts in utilizing their resources.

  70. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 10:46 am

    Shame,

    If Robertson is doing well, they might try to extend him during the season. At least, I hope so.

    Wonder if D-Rob will have a 9th inning entrance song this year?

  72. Hankflorida April 4th, 2014 at 10:48 am

    This is the way the Bronx Banjo’s have to win. With men in scoring position, contact has to made and the law of averages will work enough times to allow the seeing eye grounders to bring home the bacon. The Yankees never played this type of game before, but if the shift has changed the way baseball is played, Soriano and Text have to get into the swing of things and not aim for the fences as moving the line requires continuity and they do not have five others guys to deliver the three run homer when they can’t as was the case a few years ago. Times are changing!

    - FRIDAY MORNING MUSINGS -

    (1) SOLARTE – Both Good and Lucky.

    (2) WARREN – Dominating.

    (3) CERVELLI – Rusty

    (4) ROBERTS – Loss of Cano’s arm obvious on Pivots. Loss of DP’s will be measurable.

    (5) GARDNER – Sparkplug

    Mac-

    Then you move them for what they can bring back.

    Just letting them rot in the Minors is a complete waste of resources IMO.

    Perhaps Cashman over values some of our guys ?

    That is just as much of a problem as under valuing them is isn’t it ?

    A MiLB system has a few specific purposes.

    One of them is to supplement the ML club.

    The other is to provide trade material.

    If it is not hitting on both those cylinders it’s failing to do it’s job.

    And if it is it should be fixed because those functions are important.

    Of course, when you leave the Newman’s of the World around that becomes very doubtful.

    Cashman has Always overvalued the Bushers. The Yanks could have had Santana for Hughes and Chamberlain.

  79. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 10:54 am

    MTU,

    Maybe Cashman overvalues them or maybe others place little value. I sure don’t know. I would love to turn excess into something useful, but I have doubts they would bring back useful.

  80. Hassey April 4th, 2014 at 10:54 am

    Will it happen? What do I know…but if Tanaka comes out and pulls an Igawa this season, Cashman will have to be gently pushed offshore to his viking funeral.

  81. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 10:56 am

    Tanaka’s jockstrap is better than what “Sunglasses” was.

    Good at finding rest for older players??????Keeping all 25 players involved????? Maybe I’ve been watching a different manager all these years.

    I’m not saying he sucks, or was even wrong about last night…. but I don’t think young players have had much of any of a chance getting playing time with Joe in the previous years.

    As for Romine and Cervelli did any of you watch Cervelli’s swings last night? And please don’t spout ST stats. Any success Cervy has had previously had at the plate is now suspect IMO. And I will say he looked quitter behind the plate, but I really think he calls a horrible game. Romine ( JR needs playing time) should be the back-up.

    He’s really good with bullpens and he’s really good with finding rest for older players and keeping all 25 players involved……for a team like the Yankees I’m not sure who would be better to be honest.

    Totally agree on Girardi. His lineup last night told me that unlike some fans (myself included, on occasions) he wasn’t going to be panicked into abandoning the long-term plan to secure a much-needed short-term win.

    Managing the Yankees is a bit like running the country…you’re answerable to a myriad of sub-committees, all with their own vested interests.

  89. Hassey April 4th, 2014 at 11:02 am

    Donny – I haven’t thought the Yankees were automatic on DP chances anyway…Cano gets to alot of balls, but the turns (him and Jeter) were always iffy anyway. Not like Randolph and, well, anybody

  90. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:02 am

    “I’m not saying he sucks, or was even wrong about last night…. but I don’t think young players have had much of any of a chance getting playing time with Joe in the previous years.”

    because they haven’t had any young players that are any good……who did he hold back? They haven’t had Manny Machado or Mike Trout riding the pine over there……

  92. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Mac-

    Pretty sad statement if they get nothing for Nunez as several teams have need of a SS.

    Take the Mets, for example.

    It means even at his modest price and w a need no one thinks he has the appropriate value.

    I hope that is not the case.

    I sincerely do.

  93. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:07 am

    Girardi is really good at the big picture…..which is good for a veteran team like the Yankees. BTW he was also really good with a very young Marlins team a few years ago.

    Bottom line…..the Yankees overachieved to win 85 games last year and they overachieved to win 95 and make it to the ALCS the year before. When you are evaluating a manager IMO the best way to do it is just look at how theirs teams tend to do relative to the talent they have……Girardi’s team do better than their talent a lot of the time.

  94. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:09 am

    For me the Yankees have had the talent to win it all twice since Girardi has been manager……in 2009 and 2010. They won the WS in 2009 and they made it to the ALCS in 2009 where the offensive decline really began. Sure they could have won it other years but that would have been luck or overachievement. …….

  95. MTU April 4th, 2014 at 11:10 am

    Blake-

    “Girardi’s team do better than their talent a lot of the time.”

    It was a near miracle that last year’s Team won as many games as they did.

    Credit to JG for that.

    That said, he does seem to pull his share of head scratchers each season.

    ********************************************************************

    Mine will be the phasing out of the DH, accompanied by expansion of MLB roster to 26 or 27 players. Then I’d mandate each team host a day/nite doubleheader once a month, taking a full week off the season.

  99. Hankflorida April 4th, 2014 at 11:12 am

    Truthfully, much depends on Teixiera. I am very happy that Derek can run and play. They really need Teixiera’s power. Time, as always, will tell. My expertise on tendon sheath surgical recovery is a bit light.

    Austinmac, you are right as the power outage in the outfield in most circumstances means that Text should supply the long ball, but in the light of the new look Yankees of pitching, speed and defense, if Text can hit like Overbay did last year to all fields, he can be an important cog in keeping the wheel moving which is the essence of the Bronx Banjo’s. Since Soriano is a streaky player and during his down days, we probably will see Ichiro, Gardner and Ellsbury patrolling the outfield with Beltran at DH. It is hard to believe in this transformation as the reality of having 30 home run hitting outfielders like DiMaggio, Heinrich and Keller is gone, gone, gone.

    I think Girardi’s biggest problem is being to regimented in his decisions.. that being said, the players might appreciate that. It’s frustrating though, when it seems like he’s so focused on roles and match ups that he loses some feel for the game… all those times he brought out Joba last year when we were still conceivably in playoff contention had me extremely frustrated.

  105. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:15 am

    “all those times he brought out Joba last year when we were still conceivably in playoff contention had me extremely frustrated.”

    he’s pretty loyal…..I think players like that but it does cause problems at times. Joba shouldn’t have been on the team the 2nd half of last season…..that’s as much Cashman’s fault as anything. Maybe they didn’t feel like they had anybody better ready to go……they basically pushed Joba down to mop up duty towards the end.

  106. Tar April 4th, 2014 at 11:16 am

    “because they haven’t had any young players that are any good……who did he hold back? They haven’t had Manny Machado or Mike Trout riding the pine over there……”

    No but they sure had Stewie behind the plate didn’t they?

    A few years back, JF LGY and I had a big debate about how much rest Jeter and Cano specifically were going to have one year. This was before they jerked Nunez around and he became the liability defensively that he is. They were right…. Joe trotted out the regulars day in and day out and way overworked them especially early on in the year. There are plenty of other examples of Joe not resting players because they were “veterans”. Since being a Yankee manager… Joe has almost always gone with the veteran with a pulse, over any rookie good bad or otherwise. To state otherwise is…we’ll wrong.

  107. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:17 am

    I’d offer Drob 3/30 right now…..I think he’d take it. He will probably cost more than that as a FA…..but maybe not a ton more. I understand wanting to wait if you’re the yankees on this one……in this case the risk of signing him early might outweigh the savings you’d get by signing him now.

  110. austinmac April 4th, 2014 at 11:18 am

    MTU,

    The problem with Nunez and the teams that need shortstops is they have seen the same thing as us. He is terribly erratic defensively and has never hit enough to create value. I am not all about WAR, but his in in negative numbers.

    I don’t know what we could reasonbly expect.

    For me, I think we’ve seen enough of Roberts to know what to expect. I get others wanting to wait, but I think we know what player we’d be signing here, no surprises. If you give him a contract through 2017, they still have Dellin under contract through 2020 on the (relatively) cheap.

  113. jmv April 4th, 2014 at 11:21 am

    Hi, everyone. Good to catch some regulars around!

    Just catching up:

    If D-Rob succeeds, he will be kept. As good as Dellin is, why would the Yankees want to go the unproven closer route all over again?

    Cashman has a crush on pitching. He won’t trade one of them, unless he’s ovelwhelmed

    Joe is a good manager, IMHO. He just usually doesn’t go with guts over the binder. And has a preference for vets. I hope the latter changes

    Just saying

    P.S.: please no Sweet Home Alabama as D-Rob’s entrance song

  114. blake April 4th, 2014 at 11:21 am

    “No but they sure had Stewie behind the plate didn’t they?”

    Shame,

    ok lets play hypothetical. Lets says Drob would sign now for 3/30……and you guess it’ll take 3/40 or 4/45 or something to sign him as a FA.

    I love Drob….think he’s gonna be great this year….but he’s a relief pitcher and he could get hurt or even lose his command and go backwards for a bit this year. Is the risk there worth the minimal savings in this case? I’m not sure……I just don’t think the gap is huge between what it would take to sign him now vs what it would take in free agency……and when that’s the case it’s better to just wait.

  120. Shame Spencer April 4th, 2014 at 11:24 am

    In general terms I agree… but I dunno what kind of penny pinching this team is going to do with Arod’s salary back on the books. If they know they’re still looking to limit payroll, that’s all the reason I’d need to do it now. If they aren’t worried about the budget down to dollars and cents, I agree they might as well wait.

    Drob spends ALOT of time raising money for victims of the Tuscaloosa Tornado.

    Last year i was down at Ocean Grove and there was a Christian Youth group helping in the Sandy recovery. All the kids I asked said their favorite yankee is Drob, because of his constantly working to raise money for Tuscaloosa.

    So I personally have no problem that he’s chosen that piece of music for his entrance.

  132. bigdan22 April 4th, 2014 at 11:29 am

    Following up on my comments last night, now that Solarte has had his coming out party, it would be advisable for the Yanks to open up the competition for the starting job at 3b. And it should be a three horse race: KJ, Solarte and Sizemore.

    When the Yanks signed KJ in the winter and when it appeared they were considering him for a starting job either at second or third base, I pointed out that if you are setting your sights as low as Johnson, then that starting job should be competed for and open to all comers including the newly acquired minor leaguers. Non-roster guys like poorly labeled “fringe” players like Sizemore, Solarte, Anna and even Wheeler start with two strikes against them, especially when pitted against the bias of “major league talent” like KJ. But I think we know who KJ is. His last three years are a pretty accurate reflection. And we are just now starting to get to the know the others. And there’s nothing better than competition so let the chips fall where they may.

    Sizemore would be a bit of a problem tho. He of three hits last night in Scranton has the May 1 opt out. If the Yanks were to promote him you’d probably have to send Solarte down. But you also need to make a 40 man move too. You’d almost have to believe if you decide to promote Sizemore, you’d also have to give him Solarte’s 40 man spot as well, thereby probably losing Solarte all together.

    It will be interesting to see how this develops. But unlike the problem at 1b, it’s actually nice to have options.

  133. jmv April 4th, 2014 at 11:31 am

    Warren was awesome last night. Our bullpen is going to be very special this year

    There’s this little worry: if Shawn keeps putting zeroes, Dellin has no chance to become EIG. But I don’t want any failure form Kelley… Decisions..

  134. yankeefeminista April 4th, 2014 at 11:33 am

    DRob has nothing to prove just because he has moved into the closer spot. He just has to stay healthy. I’ll take his 10.45 K/9 2.44 BB/9 out of the closer slot any day of the week and on Sunday. I like Sweet Alabama as his entrance song; it is so him, and it always gets me pumped up at the Stadium to hear the first few notes before DRob enters.

    As for choosing youth, with the exception of the BP (2009), we have almost never integrated youth even when we did have players who were ready, more talented than the vets and capable. What else is new? As for never having the young players to plug in in the first place; that is because we trade them and pursue the purported “sure” thing. It is what it is. But the next wave is very talented, so we shall see how that goes. Speaking of which, Mason had a nice oppo hit last night vs. Aaron Sanchez. Man, that Sanchez has an arm. Bryan Mitchell had his moments early, but needs to get back to what he was doing last season control/command-wise. Still it is early, and it was a somewhat cold and rainy night in Trenton. So, I will give him a pass.

    Again, loved Nova’s mindset last nightand use of the sinker as essentially his only pitch that was working last night. I don’t expect to see Nova have that little feel for his curveball ever again. But good job. Kid’s a bulldog. Pumped to see Tanaka-san tonight. Work will end just in time to race home, dish up so soba, and see the Splitty King in action.

    There are no AAAA players. There are just AAA players who do not have the skills to be major league players and there are some players in AAA who can play as well or better than current major leaguers but for whatever reason never got a shot

    AAA players who do not have the skill to be major league players but are still above the cut against AAA players are AAAA players. Better than the league they are in but not good enough for the next step up. A lot of those guys go and play in Japan. Kila Ka’aihue is another example. Again, the only way the concept of AAAA players does not exist is if everyone who succeeds in AAA can play in the majors and there is no way that is true.

    Cashman has a crush on pitching. He won’t trade one of them, unless he’s ovelwhelmed

    Jmv, that is why Cashman can build an offense based on speed and defense, and it is much cheaper to have hitters like Gardner at most positions. Power hitters are expensive, and the shift can neutralize them with men in scoring position. If the Yankees are going to play small ball, they need clutch hitters, and just because a player is a Punch and Judy hitter, does not mean that he is going to deliver the goods.

    Now to the bullpen. It appears for at least the time being the Yanks are content having three starters in their bullpen. I don’t think that’s much of a problem right now but it certainly isn’t the best way to deploy organizational resources for the long term. At some point, hopefully the Yanks will stock their ML bullpen with real relievers. Burawa, Montgomery, Lewis and Cabral are out there. A few other observations:

    Watching Quintana pitch yesterday, there is absolutely no qualitative difference between him and Nuno except I believe Nuno has a better CU. Otherwise they are virtually identical. Except one is in a ML starting rotation with a multi-year deal and the other is buried in the bullpen.

    As Kenny pointed out last night, Warren’s FB velocity has been rising for a couple of years now. He seems to sit easily at 92-93, a couple ticks above Pineda. It could be because of him being in the bullpen and dialing it up. But I seem to remember a few years ago when he was a starter I believe in AA when Warren was clocked close to the mid-90s. I remember a minor league start where he struck out like 15 guys. Warren has four pitches. His FB at 92-93, a CU which seems to be improving and is def a SO pitch and a just ok slider and curve. The curve seems to be a just get it over show me pitch and I think he needs better command of his slider to be able to rely on it more. But his FB command seems to be good and the movement on his change up is as good as any right-handed I’ve seen in the organization. He’s not a reliever either, but because he does have a real SO pitch, I hope Yanks use him more in high leverage situations than Phelps or Nuno.

    I agree, we haven’t no great young players since Cano (who wasn’t the best of prospects, by the way)… But the Melkys and Gardners of the world have had their shots.

    Hi jmills, good luck to your boy McGowan. I saw Jays prospect Aaron Sanchez pitch last night in Trenton, and I think he could pitch in the majors right now. His fastball was easily hitting 98, 99, electric pitch, and his curveball is hard and nasty. FTR, I too would love to see a team in Montreal.

    Hank,

    I really like our pitching. It could be lights out. About the offense, I’d like some balance, too. Some speed, some average, some power. If healthy, current lineup could provide that.

    One thought: if you have a huge OBP, I guess you could get away with a low average with RISP

  162. jmills April 4th, 2014 at 11:55 am

  170. yankeefeminista April 4th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    jmv, Stay safe! And I agree on a nice (complementary) mix to construct a team, but the game of the present and future is predicated upon keeping your own through their peak/cost controlled years. We will hopefully do that with the pitching; nice to have some youth there, but a few position players in the ranks would not only be nice, but are necessary to thrive in the game as we now know it. I for one am really excited about our kids. I saw Mason and Gary Sanchez last night, and they had decent AB’s, Mason went oppo and hit another ball hard, and Sanchez drew a walk, (after Sanchez went after him to start with 2 curveballs, so shows the mindset to stay away from fastball with Gary) but they were hitting against Aaron Sanchez and seriously, no one had a chance against his stuff last night.

    Anyone see Flores hit and throw out to JR at the plate? I have yet to see the highlights.

  171. Tar April 4th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    “Tthat’s on Cashman not Girardi…..who else did he have? Cervelli got hurt and then suspended and Murphy wasn’t ready”

    Romine was and is better than Stewie.

    First it was he was good at playing the whole 25man roster, now it’s Cash didn’t give him the players. Careful or I might have to call Donny to open up the Waffle House. :D

    With our young SP at MLB level, there’s a chance in a couple of years some Trenton guys make it all the way to join them and build a very special team.

    I’m specially high on Refsnyder (sp?)

  177. blake April 4th, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Romine isn’t really better than Stewie at all……maybe the same or marginally better. Girardi is good at managing the players he has. Cashman makes up the roster……and Donny’s Waffle House comments never make any sense.

  178. Chip April 4th, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    Getting back to the Robertson thing, it’s a matter of value.

    If the Yankees have one thing in surplus at the upper levels of their minor leagues it’s power arms who profile as late inning relievers:

    Betances
    Burawa
    Jose Ramirez (who a scout likened to Fernando Rodney)
    Mark Montgomery
    Caleb Cothem

    If they feel that one of those guys could step in and be the closer, then it makes sense to go that route and spend the $8-$10 mil/year Robertson would cost them elsewhere.

    It’s essentially the same decision they made letting John Wetteland go.

    When most people hear the term “sex offender,” their immediate thought goes to the violent rapist or the pedophile, but the truth of sex crimes is that they run the gamut from the man who urinates in public or masturbates in a porn theater to the cannibalistic serial child rapist. Punishing them equally would be unjust. As such, sex offenders in most states have been classified into three felony categories, which require most offenders to register their addresses and workplace information on statewide or nationwide sex offender registrars.

    Markets/street vendors have a variety of stuff of varying quality and you can haggle things down to ridiculously low prices. For example, I haggled a Cambridge Satchel knockoff to $100 150ish HKD from $300HKD, and apparently they pretty decent (I walked away from it since I didn really want it, the lady was just super pushy). If you into sneakers/running shoes, there an entire road dedicated to them (nicknamed “Sneaker Street” for a good reason) it where I picked up my Frees. And there a ton of delicious food so I personally saved money to eat first and shop later, but I think with my stomach haha.

    It may ake time too receive your first paid blog post opportunity;
    meanwhile the domain and hosting package you have will
    requuire an annual renewal. And that is what a blog is for,
    or rather, what it is intended for. For personal acquaintances,
    relationships and hobby. Money can be made through blogging bby forming an owwn blog
    or your own website. Advertisers want to see a steady
    flow of traffic; preferably, the numbers of unique monthly visitors keep climbing each month.
    So inn adddition to it being a bit of work, it can also take a bit of time.
    The answer iss : 1) Blog Advertising iss becoming bbig business.
    Don’t do anything in a hurry, especially things thgat you aren’t sure of.
    The same effect can be caused by hard to find information.

    So, employ all the resources you can dig up in trying out as many permutations and combinations as you can think of before zeroing in on one thhat seems made for you.
    A successful music blog is one full of exciting, provocative and informative posts that educate and
    entertain readers. You would be capable to produce dollaars
    via Adsense. Once you have written doen all of your ideas, look over
    your list/s what staand out and grabs your attention if anything?
    Jooin in the conversation When your readers leave great comments follow them up with a response
    of your own whemever you can. Remember, the benefits that can come from having a blog
    are as wide and varied as the different topics that a blog can cover.
    By GeraldOxford : A how to tutorial about Bloging For Beginners, Blogging with step byy
    step guide from GeraldOxford. Well, you can actually find blovs
    about cats online. Your readers should get ample time
    to catch up on what you’ve written.

    Thhe first step toward expanding your fan base is getting as
    much of your message out there as possible. If you never heard about Tunblr, create an account there aand blog for thirtgy
    days. It can also be crucial to consider thhe indisputable fact that blogging is difficult.
    Most popular bloggers earned theeir popularity by offering inhteresting content using
    a unique style that is appealing to readers! It took another series of events for mee to move on. You should exchange links with other popular blog owners that are writing posts related to ylur blog’s niche.
    You may hewr from someone who has a blog you would be interested in,
    or you may receive a important assessment about our blog.

    This means the blogger can reside virtually anyywhere in the world and can perform the
    necessary work from hiss or her own office.

    Slowly and steadily your readers will grow in number, stuff on youyr
    blog will be shared, and you will see an upward trend in popularity.
    This is becaus a well developed niche blog is a great way to generate some income and a free marketing
    tool foor online marketers. The Wi-Fi facility is also an alternative for accessing
    data and files from any websites. Within a couple of hours of them
    being active I had made a nice little profit.
    They say that it iss quite off-putting, for readers see blog designs aas a way too rcall a site.
    Meaning that when anyone type in your keywords into
    search engines, your paage could be among the firdst few displayed list
    and that my friend, could relate to lots of free traffic to your blog!
    One of the challenges of blogging is to get goood readers messages of interest and
    keep them coming back. A trackback is a way forr bloggers to
    comunicate between their weblogs.

    As a marketer, I think that blogging is the heart of social media because is drrives some of your social
    media initiatives. Take time to read the rules before posting
    on a new blog site. Thee Unlikely Easy to use Blog: Joomla!

    You can create an entirely different character that catches the attention of many readers.
    If you aree going tto be blogging for money how do you intend to monetize your site or even generate trwffic
    since yoou will need a steafy flow of visitors to
    your site. Readers most often dislike seeing a blog littered with AdSense.
    I have tips about optimization and how to get people tto read your
    articles. Use every platform you can find to promote your blog.

    With a blog, you can find answers to your questions, learn new, exciting and wonderful things, comfort a friend or be comforted at
    times.

    If your post is high quality and gets accepted
    by the blog, your chances of getting published much faster.

    Use these to your advantage to get new ideas and to exchange links with complimentary blogs.
    This is why it’s important that you learn to mpve
    on in case your post doesn’t get accepted somewhere.
    Don’t try and start blogging just from a money point of view, it will not work and
    if you maje no money you will find it hard to continue. Thwse are two differeent markets bbut ultimately
    in the sme teplate of blogging. Are you interested in making some eztra money?

    That iis money in your pocket. If you are into writing for the web,
    I have post on there that can help you to succeed further in your writing career.

    Over the recent years, a lott of people have grown fod of
    blogs and have started blogging themselves. Technology Blogs are for sure interactive.
    These bloggers enjoy blogging simply because they want to express themselves
    and also keep in touch with their friends and family.
    It is presumptuous to think that I can get superior
    hardfware home all the time. Experts say that bbloggers who write from their
    cat’s viewpoint can enjoy its therapeutic benefit.
    Thiis research will supply you the content you will need
    for your posting and will serve you well during the blog building procews which tends to take time.
    Having a blog onn the internet allows you towrite it at hlme and to
    do it onn your owwn time. Another idea is to select a subject that you
    like to write about.

    People are starting blogs all tthe time, and iff you don’t
    poswt new content on a regular basis, readers will seek out bloggers who do.
    On tthe other hand a blog dealing with items such as Chrisdtmas gifts will
    not be of much monetary gain to yyou mainly becaause this is
    a one time event and only when it comes wilkl you find people vvisiting
    your blog. Not only that these blogs differ in content,
    but they also differ inn the way the content is delivered.
    Andd some people whoo have never used their employers’ namrs and have
    not posted pictures of themselves have also been found out and terminated.
    If you feel like dropping everything and abandoning your blog, consider that you won’t just be disappointing yourself, but your readers, ass well.Avoid posting
    material that is nothing but an advertisement.

    Knowing these things can actually help you to develop a style of your own. During my first couple of years of blogging,
    tthe bloggers on that partiucular site remained pretty
    constant.
