Tanaka time in the Bronx

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Apr 09, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Masahiro TanakaIt figures to be rather chilly inside Yankee Stadium Wednesday night, but Masahiro Tanaka isn’t sweating over the thought.

“I’m not worried too much just because I used to pitch in a city called Sendai, which is in the northern part of Japan, which was usually cold around this time of the season,” Tanaka said through an interpreter.

Of course, if Tanaka pitches the way he did last year in his 24-0 Rakuten run or like he did in the final five innings of his win Friday night when the Yankees were in Toronto, he should receive a lot of warmth from the home crowd. Tanaka will be making his Bronx debut in the series finale against the Orioles.

And he’s looking forward to it, especially after experiencing the festivities at Monday’s home opener.

“I was going through the ceremony; I felt that the fans are here to back us up,” Tanaka said. “So unlike Toronto, it should be nice.”

His 29-game regular-season winning streak will be on the line, dating to Aug. 19, 2012, when the Seibu Lions beat him. After giving up three runs in the first two innings of his Yankees debut, the 25-year-old righty fired off five scoreless innings against the Blue Jays and picked up a 7-3 win.

“For me, it’s all about the mechanics of how I pitch,” Tanaka said. “That said, I know what I need to fix.”

Ivan Nova knows he has to fix some things, too, after reverting to his inconsistent ways in his first two starts. Here’s the link to my story on LoHud.com and in The Journal News today about what went on with him and the team in yesterday’s 14-5 loss.

    Let’s go Tanaka!! Will be nice to watch an evening game from the comfort of home.

    Re-post:

    A shortstop makes a third baseman look better, not the other way around. And as far as the metrics go, it doesn’t appear Cano was saving the Yanks a whole lot of runs with his glove.

    I don’t think you can have a game-changing defensive play in the first inning of a game that you lose by nine runs. Yesterday’s game falls squarely on Nova but the SS defense was particularly poor and my point is that if Drew or another high priced SS option were on the Yanks’ roster that would have created an untenable situation for Jeter and the FO.

    Jeter and the FO are in this farewell season together. Now they need to sleep in that bed that they’ve made for each other.

    Good test for Masahiro.

    Really good hitting lineup.

  4. yanks61 April 9th, 2014 at 9:10 am

    Mike,

    My last reply is, I think, the last post on the last thread. Have a great day – go Tanaka and the Yanks!

    I think the X-e1 is a terrific value right now.

    Right up there w the Sigma’s.

    I’d be tempted if I didn’t have my eyes on something on the horizon.

    Have a good one.

    at this point there is nothing they can do about Jeter…..but that shouldn’t stop them from trying to get a 3B….and if said 3B could also play SS some that would be great.

  8. NYY fan in NH April 9th, 2014 at 9:15 am

    Go Tanaka!! As for Nova, how does he not able to bring the success of spring training into the regular season.. This always seems to be the case with him. His mental toughness always seems to be in question. All that talent in the world and just can’t harness it!

  9. bigdan22 April 9th, 2014 at 9:15 am

    “A shortstop makes a third baseman look better, not the other way around. And as far as the metrics go, it doesn’t appear Cano was saving the Yanks a whole lot of runs with his glove.”
    _____

    “but it would make 3B better…..having two bad fielders on the left side is worse than 1″

    ______

    I don’t think the Yanks defensive play at 3b this year has been poor. It hasn’t been particularly good, but when you consider how much offense is being generated there so far it’s not something that warrants criticism.

    My point is, if you are going to criticize the Yanks’ infield defense you better point the finger squarely at the SS because otherwise you are just not making a whole lot of sense.

  10. Shame Spencer April 9th, 2014 at 9:17 am

    Sounds like there was a mass stabbing at a Pittsburgh school today.. no deaths reported thus far.

    —————-

    I dunno, there are still ways to improve the team.. you can move Solarte to 2B and improve the D at 3B (while keeping his offense) and your team is now better than it was yesterday. Have Roberts, who hasn’t exactly been lighting things up anyway, slide to 1B. If you’re willing to play Cervi there, no one can honestly tell me this would be a stretch. Roberts is still getting on base at least. It’s not the ideal power situation, but this team will have to utilize a lot of not ideal set ups to win.

    If they can get better anywhere, isn’t that worth looking into?

    MTU,

    That America is a materialistic, consumption-based culture that values what you own more than who you are is not news to me, and frankly the Newtonian paradigm has everything to do with that, so “scientists” are not necessarily allowing scientists to advance pure knowledge and/or that which contributes to a “base” knowlege that benefits society.

    That’s a broad discussion and I don’t see how baseball is detracting from the progress of science or of artists being seen/heard (and “Art” is most definitely controlled by the elite; the “starving artist” is an invention of the rich).

    It’s also true that many many baseball players devote time to youth programs, give to charities, etc. They’re not all self centered egotists
    Who just count their money and spit on the fan, as some here seem to suggest.

    Look at what D-Rob and his wife did/continue to do for his home state of Alabama; look at what Mariano and his wife have done in Panama and now, here in NY, through their church; Tex works with RBI up in Harlem with inner city youth; Alex Rodriguez has given a million dollars to Boys & Girls Club; Robi Cano does all sorts of offseason work with poor kids in the Dominican Republic, etc.

    Those are certainly contributions to society, so teachers, although clearly under compensated (again; we can’t just make a facile sweep and say look at teachers compared to baseball players – we have an institutional problem whose iron grip is the very foundation of the society, that can’t be hand waved that way, IMO) aren’t the only people “educating” our youth, etc.

    It’s not the place for this kind of discussion, but since you did kind of sweep your hand about it – and because I have a lifelong connection to both “scientists” and art – the making of art, the struggles of artists, etc. – I can’t just let this be construed as some kind of polarity where Science/Teaching/Art is on one side, and baseball, etc, is on the other.

    It’s far too complex and the dichotomies and real problems are far too real to just be swept into some generalized, fly-by statement on, yes, a baseball blog – certainly, in any case, without expecting comments in reply.

    Oh man, UW died? R.I.P Warrior… he was pretty nutzo.

    ———————

    It all happened kind of fast. He was inducted into the wrestling HOF on Saturday, appeared at Wrestlemania on Sunday, appeared on Raw on Monday, and then died last night.

    “No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat; his lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honour him, and make the running the man did live forever.

    You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend-makers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back, I see many potential legends, some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever!”

    IMO “mental toughness” is not the issue w Nova.

    I think he is a fierce competitor.

    Mechanics are.

    He can get “out of whack” and needs to learn how to “self-correct” and adjust in-game.

    In the case of a game like yesterday where little to nothing was working there isn’t much you can do.

    I call games like that one “clunkers”.

    And all pitchers have a few of them during the course of the season.

    The thing that does trouble me a little is his loss of feel for his curve.

    I hope it comes soon because that is such an important pitch for him.

  16. Shame Spencer April 9th, 2014 at 9:28 am

    I don’t follow much wrestling anymore, but I did catch the speech and thought it was effing awesome… so weird how it worked out.

  17. bigdan22 April 9th, 2014 at 9:30 am

    If they can get better anywhere, isn’t that worth looking into?

    —–

    You could try that, but from what I’ve seen I don’t think Solarte is very strong at 2b. He looks to me like a left side guy with 3b as his best position. From what little I’ve seen, he doesn’t seem to make the pivot all that well. Turning a DP is one of the most important things an infield can do defensively and Roberts seems the best at that so I’m not sure I’d want to mess with that.

    For better or worse (and probably mostly worse) Tex will be back soon so that issue will go away. I think you play Johnson at 1b until then. Cervelli should be strictly an emergency option.

  18. J. Alfred Prufrock April 9th, 2014 at 9:30 am

    The Nova lacking “mental toughness” is a meme that comes from lazy thinking.

  19. blake April 9th, 2014 at 9:31 am

    I agree with MTU regarding Nova…..it’s mechanical. When he can’t get his sinker down in the zone and when he can’t throw his breaking ball for a strike then he gets hit…..that’s always been the case.

    As I said yesterday this isn’t really unusual for Nova…..April is always his worst month. He has a 5.53 career ERA in April typically improves as it warms up. I think it takes him awhile to get the feel for his sinker

  20. blake April 9th, 2014 at 9:32 am

    the original Ultimate Warrior was already dead right?

  21. MTU April 9th, 2014 at 9:32 am

    maybe I’m wrong on that…..for some reason I thought there were 2 ultimate Warriors (same character but a different guy taking over after the first one died). He was one of my favorites as a kid……best intro music ever

  24. MTU April 9th, 2014 at 9:38 am

    AAO-

    Unfortunately, people killing people a few at a time or in mass quantities is nothing new.

    It’s been going on for over 2 thousand years.

    I wish it would stop but I know it won’t.

    Because Man is so flawed and has fallen from grace, and refuses to obey even the most rudimentary of laws.

    It is truly sad.

    :(

  25. Locke April 9th, 2014 at 9:39 am

    I think Tanaka will have a better start than in Houston. The O’s have a pretty awesome lineup, but hopefully Tanaka will be more comfortable than he was for his first few innings on MLB ball.

    Yesterday was rough, but luckily baseball is a sport with 162 games instead of 16. I’m still grateful to have baseball season back. No matter how bad the Yankees are the off season gets me craving baseball again. Go Yanks!

  26. Shame Spencer April 9th, 2014 at 9:41 am

    I dunno, Solarte has a lot more experience at 2B than 3B and I haven’t thought much of his D in that spot. I don’t think it’d be widely better or worse at 2B, but if the payoff is you improve the 3B D that’s still a plus.

    Whatever, they aren’t getting anyone anyway… they’ll let the misfit toys piece things together until the wheels fall off.

  27. Locke April 9th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    *Toronto (not Houston).

    Shame: I think that makes sense. Upgrade 3B while upgrading 2B at the same time, then that provides more backup for SS.

  28. MTU April 9th, 2014 at 9:44 am

    Shame-

    IMO Solarte is at least an avg. fielder at 3b and with his O (hopefully it remains adequate)
    he is just fine over there.

    MTU – I like the twists and turns this blog takes, always have.

    It’s free form (along with some of the baseball commentary) is what’s most appealing about the place.

    To really do that subject any justice is well beyond the scope of this blog. :)

  32. Shame Spencer April 9th, 2014 at 9:46 am

    Shame: I think that makes sense. Upgrade 3B while upgrading 2B at the same time, then that provides more backup for SS.

    ——————-

    It’s a small tweak… but this team is reliant on them. Even if you can start playing Solarte at 1B, keep Roberts and his D at 2B, and upgrade 3B – doesn’t that also make us better?

    I just don’t buy into the idea that you can only criticize the SS D.. if marginal upgrades can be made, try them out.

  36. blake April 9th, 2014 at 9:51 am

    I agree…..upgrade 3B and let Solarte push Roberts and Johnson for PT at 1B and 3B and even at DH.

    Just because you can’t do anything about SS doesn’t mean you should try to improve the other spots…..

  37. MTU April 9th, 2014 at 9:52 am

    Solarte might not be a “misfit toy piece”.

    We’ll have to see.

    I’m thinking more “diamond in the rough”.

    Or lotto prize.

  38. bigdan22 April 9th, 2014 at 9:54 am

    You guys want a feel good story for the morning? How many of you have heard of Mike Ford? I hadn’t until yesterday. Apparently he’s tearing it up in his first week in the Sally league for Charleston. He’s a 21 year-old left-handed first baseman. I did a quick Google search and this is what I found out.

    Mike Ford was last year’s Ivy League Player and Pitcher of the Year for Princeton. He went undrafted in June and entered the Cape Cod League. There he proceeded to lead that league in hitting (.407), slugging (.663) and OBP (.495). Several teams took notice, but Ford grew up in NJ idolizing Mo and Tino. He signed with the Yanks and went to Staten Island last July. Didn’t hit a whole lot last year (.235) in about 100 ABs but he walked quite a bit. The Yanks must have thought enough of him to hand him the starting first base job in Charleston this year. So far he’s OPSing over 1.200.

    So now we have Solarte and Ford to root for. Fat City!

  39. MTU April 9th, 2014 at 9:56 am

    Solarte is a doubles machine so far.

    And an RBI machine.

    More of same please.

    :)

  40. longtimefan April 9th, 2014 at 9:57 am

    Many armchair players here taking cheap shots at Derek Jeter, sure his defense is not what it use to be 15 years ago, but how many of us can say we are better than we were 15 years ago if we are honest, one of the greatest yankees of all time is in his final season, why not show him a little respect and some support for all the times he did come thru in the clutch and have your forgotten.

    Excuse me but you guys are getting kind of nutty now. Tex will be back in about a week. Roberts is the best 2b the Yanks have pure and simple right now. The issue soon will be how Johnson and Solarte split time at 3b. Perhaps Johnson plays a little 2b too. But there’s no room to add anyone. And besides, don’t forget Sizemore is coming down the pike as well.

  43. blake April 9th, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Small sample but Gary Sanchez is hitting .333 .455 .667 1.121 so far at Trenton……maybe he’ll take off this year.

    Mason is also hitting .300 .391 .450 .841 at Trenton so far so good starts for both of them

    Wait… before you were saying that Solarte’s D doesn’t matter because he can hit.. so how is Roberts the best 2B we have? Wouldn’t Solarte be the best 2B (his natural position) based on your logic applied to his role as a 3B?

  47. J. Alfred Prufrock April 9th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    Solarte is a rhythmic kind of hitter with jerky mechanics, but so far, he seems capable of making adjustments & to put good wood on the ball and drive it.

    He’s hitting and only half-way to age 30 – that’ll work :)

  48. blake April 9th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    stating the truth isn’t taking cheap shots…..Jeter is my favorite player…..IMO he’s the greatest SS since Honus Wagner…..but he’s gotta make that play yesterday and if he can’t on a consistent basis then it’s going to be a problem……he’s moved a lot better than that this year so I’m hopeful he just got stuck in the dirt or didn’t see it or something.

    Yes this is the last hoorah for him and I also would rather enjoy it than nit pick every play…..but again if we are just going to accept him at SS then they need to do everything they can to strengthen the defense around him…..3B in particular.

    ///

    Yep. Reports of their demises have been greatly exaggerated.

    Sanchez was barely in AA last year, and Mason wasn’t there long and was coming off the shoulder. He was calmly taking Aaron Sanchez’s 97 mph offerings the other way on OD and looking way more in control at the plate. He’s trade bait, of course – because of Ellsbury.

    Gary Sanchez better not be dealt.

    Trenton is starting off well offensive. Refsynder, who may be the Yanks most important prospect heading into next offseason because he plays 2b, got his first two hits last night, a double and a homer. And Segedin, who’s a real sleeper at 3b but actually seems to have a bat tool and hit really well early last year before a season-ending injury, seems to have gotten off to a good start as well (OPS over .900).

    Good times!

    No one is saying there is anything wrong with it but if you could get better offensive production from 2B by sliding him there and a 3B that offers above average D and better offense than Roberts, you’re now a better team.

    This team is not gonna run away with anything as is, so marginal upgrades are your only option.

    AA is the place prospects are to be taken serious if they perform…..If Sanchez and Mason hit there then people will take notice…..and also if they hit there they really aren’t far from the majors.

  59. J. Alfred Prufrock April 9th, 2014 at 10:13 am

    Segedin had his power sapped due to injury, he can hit but what’s noteworthy is he has improved defensively at 3B.

    The Trenton infield has been a mine field for years – Betances’ high pitch counts often were as much a product of misplayed grounders and “automatic” outs turning into hits than a lack of control, since he gets feeble grounders and Ks) – so this one, by comparison, is shutdown :)

  60. bigdan22 April 9th, 2014 at 10:14 am

    Sanchez should have a monster year and then be packaged for Tulo in the Great Trade of 2015. It’s a dream, but that’s how you take this franchise to the next level and become once again a true World Series contender. It’s seems like it’s been awhile.

    Haha, we can kid but I don’t think he’s a fluke. He’s not an all star, at least not yet, but this guy can hit and he’s hungry. He’ll make himself into at least an average fielder. Boggs did that. So did others. And his bat really plays in the infield wherever he is. Nice find for the scouts.

  70. Shame Spencer April 9th, 2014 at 10:22 am

    If you can feasibly improve 2B and 3B, Tex being around doesn’t matter one way or the other. The idea that we have too many bodies seems a little off base.. just get rid of people (Anna, Sizemore, Romine, etc).

    I know, I know, I’m mean.

    Roberts has a little experience at SS, btw. I really don’t envision Ryan being a reliable back up. Just food for thought.

  77. Ys Guy April 9th, 2014 at 10:29 am

    i was mad at my gf for making us late for the first pitch yesterday, but my anger quickly shifted to ivan nova because jones’ homer was in flight as we to to our seats and it was 3-0 before we even sat down.

    pettitte did the same thing to me last year only im pretty sure it was 7-0 before we sat down that game.

    either the yankees need better pitchers or i need a gf who’s on-time once in a while…

  78. Locke April 9th, 2014 at 10:30 am

    bigdan22: If he could play average D in the infield with a .270/.320/.430 I’d be happy. I think he might be better, but pitchers are going to learn how to pitch him if he keeps hitting.

  79. bigdan22 April 9th, 2014 at 10:31 am

    Tell you something interesting. The blogs are having a def impact on the way baseball is being reported.

    I read several stories about the Yanks game yesterday from major news sources. The Yanks lost by nine runs yesterday but they all mentioned the poor quality of the Yanks’ defense and specifically Jeter’s missed play in the first inning. I don’t think the game would have been reported that way 10 years ago. Mainstream journalists are very sensitive to what bloggers are saying.

    And in that respect, there’s no way Jeter is getting any type of pass this year.

  80. blake April 9th, 2014 at 10:31 am

    “Blake “Yes this is the last hoorah for him and I also would rather enjoy it than nit pick every play…..but –the but proves my point, ace.”

    ——-

    I see something like that as well. Maybe a little higher slugging. He def has doubles power and probably can hit 10-15 homers as well which is very good for the infield. I think pitchers should stop throwing him strikes for awhile and see if he gets himself out. But he can def hit the FB and bad breaking pitches. And hit with two strikes.

  85. Ys Guy April 9th, 2014 at 10:39 am

    jeter looked terrible at D yesterday, there was the play in the first inning, then another hot shot later in the game that almost hit him in the mitt that he didnt get. and the near collision with gardner was obviously the LF’s play.

    then kelley johnson finally gets to play 2B and muffs one.

    the team i saw play yesterday is not a playoff team.

    —-

    I’m not saying it’s a bad thing at all. But what I am saying is the conventional beat writers would have protected Jeter 10 years ago and he wouldn’t have been part of the game story at all. Now they have to report it because the bloggers will pick it up. They don’t want to look like they don’t know the game. In the old days, protecting the icon helped the reporter get access which is key. Now they have to play it differently because someone is looking over their shoulder.

  90. 4TrainNorth April 9th, 2014 at 10:44 am

    Guess we really can’t expect to hit enough and pitch enough to mask our problems in the infield. Hardly a surprise. And when the infield D gets a lot of chances to screw up, the product on the field right now is sloppy, uninspired baseball. And there’s really no immediate solution. Just hope for more fly balls and strikeouts.

    Again though in general Derek has looked a lot better on defense this year than I thought he would…..there have been a couple of other plays he didn’t make that a good defender at SS might have made but yesterday was really the first play Ive seen where literally he was the only SS in baseball that doesn’t get to that ball…….as long as it’s not a regular thing it’s not going to sink them….especially if he hits.

  94. bruceb April 9th, 2014 at 10:49 am

    The game thread is for both cheering and venting. It’s a place where you can celebrate achievement and decry underperformance. It’s a reflection of life: some people are optimists, some are pessimists, but somehow we all have to find a way to live together.

    I agree, there is no place for some of the downright nastiness that goes on, but a handful of posters on here have a very high opinion…well, of their own opinion.

  95. Cashmoney April 9th, 2014 at 10:49 am

    Jeter’s record speaks for itself. He is old and about done defensively, that’s a fact. I don’t know what the big deal is.

    Probably the best protect the icon for access situation in recent memory is Tiger Woods. Before the scandal, off, off, off the record, reporters hated this guy. He was like the biggest jerk walking the face of the earth but nobody could say anything bad about him or Tiger would retaliate. That’s why the reaction was so extreme after the scandal. So many people just absolutely hated the him. Karma.

    I think it also comes down to being able to quantify things like D. People didn’t try to do it before.. once you start measuring these things, you can compare players and that’s half the fun of watching the game.

    The game threads here are simply awful, for that reason. Unreadable.”

    I do enjoy the times when J Alfred Prufrock and I are totally in synch.

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

    I personally find booing both barbaric and immature. When you do it to your players? Add dumb to the list. I hardly think that the amount of money one makes should be somehow connected to whether or not booing is acceptable. Unless of course you believe that the amount of money someone makes takes the person out of the realm of having feelings. Then of course, rain it down, because the robot in the person will certainly be able to ignore the boos and then, in the case of baseball, have the person come to the plate the very next time and hit a home run.

    Give me the St. Louis Cardinal fan base any day of the week. I’d like to transplant them to the Bronx.

    “The game thread is for both cheering and venting. It’s a place where you can celebrate achievement and decry underperformance.”

    bruceb – if the same posters who decry underperformance took the time to celebrate achievement, there would be a balance in the game threads. Unfortunately there seem to be some posters who show up just to kick the crap out of any “underperforming” Yankees du jour and use those underperformances to continually remind us of just how horrendous the team is, how bad the front office is at making decisions, and how Cashman should be run out of town on a rail.

    I know a lot of posters who won’t go anywhere near game threads for that reason. I’ve pretty much gotten to that myself. Nobody begrudges constructive criticism. It’s the destructive that tends to permeate the game threads.

  140. blake April 9th, 2014 at 11:20 am

    a true boy band consists of members who 1) cannot play instruments 2) do not write songs 3) sing and dance. So basically they are dancers who sing.

  141. Hassey April 9th, 2014 at 11:20 am

    In 1970, the year the Jackson 5 had 4 #1 hits (I want you back, ABC, The Love You Save, and I Want You Back), Jackie turned 19, tito turned 17, Jermanie turned 16, Marlon turned 14 and Micheal turned 12 (although they were claiming that he was 10)

    id say that qualifies as a boy band.

    Definition of “Boy Band” is surely: assortment of kids with little or no talent brought together by money-hungry music mogul for the sole purpose of profit.

    So, no, The Beatles and Jackson 5 definitely don’t fall into the Boy Band category!

    Does Joe Jackson not count…????

    anybody else watch Naked and Afraid. I was watching one last night where they were in the desert in Madagascar and the girl of the two was a naturalist type person…..the first day she didn’t want to take a birds nest to use for a fire starter……she didn’t want to kill the black widows that were in the cave they found for shelter…….by about the 3rd day she was ready to torch those spiders and kill anything around for food. That show is crazy…..

  152. mick April 9th, 2014 at 11:25 am

    Yes, but why do they actually have to be naked? They blur out the naughty bits and after 14 days in the jungle, you sure as hell wouldn’t want to see them anyway. Surely they could at least wear a mankini?

  158. exiledintampa April 9th, 2014 at 11:27 am

    A boy band (or boyband) is loosely defined as a vocal group consisting of young male singers, usually in their teenage years or in their twenties at the time of formation. Being vocal groups, most boy band members do not play musical instruments, either in recording sessions or on stage, making the term something of a misnomer. However, exceptions do exist. Most boy bands dance as well as sing, usually giving highly choreographed performances.

    Some such bands form on their own. They can evolve out of church choral or gospel music groups, but are often created by talent managers or record producers who hold auditions. Due to this and their general commercial orientation towards a female audience of preteens, teenyboppers, or teens, the term may be used with negative connotations in music journalism

    I think that’s just part of the survival part of it…..I mean having no clothes in the desert certainly complicates it a lot. The one I watched last night the guy wouldn’t cuddle for heat because he was Mormon……he also overcooked both snakes they caught so bad that they were inedible.

    Yes, Jeter’s defense is a problem, but he will continue to play there because he is Derek Jeter and also because they have no one else.

    I am glad short sample size issues do not appy to success, and we can know Solarte will be great going forward. I would be thrilled with average defense, a .275 average and ten homers. That is probably optimistic when you consider his last two PCL years.

    McCann and Roberts need to hit a little. Ellsbury needs someone to drive him in.

    The O’s will be a test. They have a very good offense. It will really be good when they get Hardy and Machado back. I read Hardy may play tonight. Go get them Tanaka.

  169. mick April 9th, 2014 at 11:31 am

    “The only time I ever booed at a game was when replay on the score board showed the Ref’s made a really bad call that hurt my team. Is booing Ref’s ok ?”

    Exiled, you ask a very good question. I’d say it’s more expected and I would think refs are more impervious to me (can’t say for sure, of course), because they expect to automatically be booed since what they are doing will make one side happy and the other side made. There’s no winning when you’re a ref. That definitely comes with the territory.

    I’ve never booed at a game, including booing the opponent. But in terms of expectations, I think the opponent has more of an expectation of being booed by fans of the other team. I wouldn’t say that should keep them up at night. Jeter always said he enjoyed being booed
    on the road because that meant to him that they considered him a good player. On the other hand, there’s something about fan loyalty that is so sacred to me that the thought of booing your own guy just because he’s not performing well that just doesn’t sit right. But that’s me.

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

    I remember reading comments from both managers and players who admit that getting booed hurts. Well then if I’m a fan and I know that, I don’t do it because if you’re the team I root for, I want to support you and not tear you down.

    I always go to the premise that every player on the field is trying his hardest. If that isn’t the case and a player is lazy, you know what? Then all bets are off. But you really need to know that’s happening. I’d say in the vast majority of the cases, the player is giving his best that day. Nobody is perfect.

    ———————–

    The only time I’ve ever booed was when an umpire blew the “infield fly” call killing a huge rally. It cost the Braves the 2012 WC game. Chipper Jones was so mad he didn’t come out to wave goodbye to the fans in his final game. It was horrible and fans threw garbage on the field for nearly twenty minutes.

    I hate booing players or bad calls, but that was the worst call I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Some academics theorize that the response by young women to boy bands is the equivalent of the female sexual awakening, which is normally only attributed to boys going through puberty.

    Shame Spencer:

    BSB and NSync were/are 100% boy bands. They may have written material, or played instruments, but they didn’t do it as part of their act.

    To say otherwise would be like saying Ichiro wasn’t a real lead off hitter because he hit lots of HRs in batting practice.

  186. bruceb April 9th, 2014 at 11:46 am

    Did The Monkees play their own instruments or write their own songs?
    — Yes, but not at first. Because The Monkees were originally supposed to be an imaginary band on TV, their producers/supervisors didn’t think it was necessary for them to play or write the music on their records.

    So I guess they qualify!

    I think wearing the little microphone headset, choreographed dancing, a majority female and homosexual fanbase, requiring that all “band” members be attractive, and a GENERAL lack of musical instruments should all be factors.

    “The game thread is for both cheering and venting. It’s a place where you can celebrate achievement and decry underperformance.”

    bruceb – if the same posters who decry underperformance took the time to celebrate achievement, there would be a balance in the game threads. Unfortunately there seem to be some posters who show up just to kick the crap out of any “underperforming” Yankees du jour and use those underperformances to continually remind us of just how horrendous the team is, how bad the front office is at making decisions, and how Cashman should be run out of town on a rail.

    I know a lot of posters who won’t go anywhere near game threads for that reason. I’ve pretty much gotten to that myself. Nobody begrudges constructive criticism. It’s the destructive that tends to permeate the game threads.

    JMO

    —–

    We don’t agree on much but we do on this one.

    My issue with you (and mick for that matter) is that you often lump me with the typical bridge jumpers on the game threads when I’m nothing like them in any way.

    I’m one of those people who does not read or comment on game threads for the very same reasons you suggested. It is unreadable and full of idiotic nonsense and I haven’t read or commented on a game thread since the 2010 season.

    And I’ve stated many times in this forum that booing your own players is moronic and juvenile. I’ve had arguments with mick regarding this topic more than I can count.

    It’s not that I don’t think the players can handle it. The issue is that it reflects negatively on the individual because it’s juvenile behavior. Of course, fans have the right to boo whomever they want. But I also have the same right to call them idiots for participating in such behavior.

    If you’re an adult and you’re booing your own guys, you’re an imbecile. It’s as simple as that.

    That’s the difference between me and your typical negative posters. I don’t come here just to post negativity. I criticize what I believe are significant flaws with this team (and the FO for that matter) and nothing more.

    - WEDNESDAY MORNING MUSINGS -

    (1) Girardi did the right thing yesterday by letting that game go, and resetting the Pen.

    (2) Roberts + Cervelli on the right side simultaneously = Poison

    (3) Jeet going to his left in the 1st inning, looked much like the play he injured himself on vs Detroit. I believe deja vu is responsible for the ball getting under his mitt.

    (4) Wonder if the Dodgers have called to inquire about Cervelli?

    (5) I give Ells a couple weeks to adjust to CF in Yankee Stadium. Currently, Gardner superior

    (6) Wieters still playing in the 8th inning of a Blowout? Typical Showalter vs the Yanks.

    (7) Soriano on the verge of starting one of his tears.

    I used to run 7 miles a day.

    Then I got hit by a car and screwed up my left leg. The doctors told me I couldn’t run anymore but I could rollerblade.

    I used to rollerblade 7 miles a night. Then the bad weather came and my job interfered so I had to give that up.

    I used to walk 5 miles a day. Then I hurt my back and the holidays came so not only was I not exercising, I was eating everything sweet in sight.

    I just recently got back to walking again. I started huffing and puffing after only about 50 feet, I would estimate.

    Getting back on the horse isn’t as easy as people make it out to be!

    Off to see if I can try to turn that slow trot into a canter!

    Hmm let’s see if I can fit into the conversation

    1. Not a bridge jumper, though I do !ike to be sarcastic in game threads (trying to invent a sarcasm font,it would improve the internets greatly)

    2. At the stadium: the Yankees themselves have caused the problem with the fans attitudes. The price of tickets lends itself to only having more affluent fans, who generally speaking, don’t have the baseball knowledge or respect for the game. JMO

    3. I like NKOTB myself, and I find that as douche baggy as Justin Timberlake might be, he’s pretty talented and he should be given some props for making SNL at least somewhat funny for 5 episodes over the last 10 years.

    4. I just started biking, trying for a lifestyle change…try to do around 50 or so minutes a day, up to about 18.25 miles.

    5. solarte ,so far has been a real reason to pull for this team. I like having a reason to watch, aside from just general fandom. Its refreshing to see someone who goes out there everyday fighting for a job….

    6. nova is a tough competitor, like any good athlete he needs to figures out how to make his mechanics repeatable(I’m trying to do this with my golf swing).

    “Hence the problem. Throwing strikes and doing it consistently. That requires duplicating your motion over and over again – not the easiest thing for a big pitcher. Time will tell.”

    this is why he’s much better suited to the bullpen though…..he only has to hold it together for a few pitches and he can just air it out which enhances his stuff and makes command less important. Also…..if he doesn’t have it you can just pull him and put somebody else in whereas if you go to the mound as a starter and can’t throw a strike its a really big problem not only for that game but for 2 or 3 games after that.

    Just hold it over the mitt for 10 pitches and throw 97 Dellin……

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. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). 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

    Aerosoles “Sleigh Thread,” $79. More comfort in the trendy wedge you will not find for $79. Our deputy editor Theresa O’Rourke tested it for us, and the minute she took them off, purchased them online. Here’s why: Rubber soles are more flexible than hard leather, and they grip the floor, which ups your comfort level. Also, there’s a diamond patterned sole which distributes your weight, and even the leather dying is done in a special way that adds more flexibility. The result: An easy to wear a three and a quarter inch heel. Also in black, British tan and fatigue.

    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. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). 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

    This article challenges Bernstein’s problem of redundant degrees of freedom (DOF) that remains unsolved from the control theoretic point of view as well as from the standpoint of both neuro physiology and robotics. Firstly, a rather simpler but mysterious control problem of movements of human like multi joint reaching with excess DOFs is analyzed from Newtonian mechanics and differential geometry. Secondly, another illustrative control problem that seems to be sophisticated and complicated is tackled, which is to find a sensory coordinated control signal for 3 Dimensional stable grasping and object manipulation by a pair of robot fingers with multiple joints under the effect of gravity and nonholonomic constraints. In each illustrative control problem, it is possible to find a simple control signal that renders each corresponding closed loop dynamics stable on its corresponding equilibrium point manifold. It is claimed, however, that convergences of solutions of closed loop dynamics to an equilibrium point manifold can not be analyzed by using Lyapunov’s direct method, because a Lyapunov like energy form can not be positive definite due to redundancy of DOFs. Instead, a novel definition called “stability on a manifold” based upon the concept of Riemannian distance on the constraint manifold is introduced in both illustrative problems and used in the analysis of convergence of solution trajectories. It is also shown that finiteness of Riemannian metrics plays an important role in evaluation of the performance of control in both problems.

    3. But do not be hard on yourself when you stumble. For, you will stumble and fall. Let’s suppose, for example, you are meditating or, as Christians sometimes call it, praying, and you feel the joy of releasing all illusions of control. As you do, the anxiety. the worry disappear and, in their place, joy and peace fills your inner soul. You feel free.
