    We have a “regular” lineup?

  2. austinmac June 10th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Sanchez just threw out a guy with 28 SBs on a great throw.

  3. MoRings42 June 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    The lineup that has Jeter and his .200 obp the past 2 weeks 2nd when he should be 7th is the regular lineup

  4. Missing Cano June 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Girardi says yankees expect to activate Shawn Kelley tomorrow

    who goes for kelley?

  5. austinmac June 10th, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I hope they send Daley down rather than Ramirez when Kelly returns.

  6. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    I wonder when Tricia is up for parole and will be joining us again ???? To think both her and The Tin Cup are on suspension, man they provided some great theater here for all those years.
    =================
    Pat M-
    Trisha was here yesterday for a moment I believe and must have had some choice words as it was all deleted.
    Jesus Bustero left some remnants of what was said but that was also deleted.
    If they were banned it might have been for that..

  7. Mottsx June 10th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    Apparently DeCarr is signing , 3rd round pick HS pitcher from Connecticut. Double slot

  8. cofuzz June 10th, 2014 at 7:22 pm

    I guess it’s hard for some to accept the reality that today, this is barely even an average team.
    Based of the pitching staff’s performance being, in my opinion, less sustainable than the offense’s woes seem likely to improve, I’d say this team may actually be worse than .500 when the pitchers run out of steam.

  9. G. Love June 10th, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    When you look at that lineup, it really should be enough. Show’s you how bad they’ve been offensively.

    That said, they had a rain out which means more rest and we all know Girardi loves more rest for his guys.

    With the silky left handed stylings of Mr. Vidal Nuno, this one’s a lock…right?

  10. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    Why has it taken 2months for this team to not start hitting?
    Granted our only 2 power sources have not been together for most of that time.
    That has to be it, right?

  11. Mottsx June 10th, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    Roller hit a 3 run HR. Refsnyder to lead off the 2nd

  12. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    Beltran has been injured.

    That explains him.

    Tex is fine as long as his wrist isn’t bothering him.

    I don’t know what’s up w McCann. I believe he’s better than what he’s shown.

    But maybe not ?

    Ellsbury is not providing much power. One would have thought he would.

    I have no idea what Soriano has left. Maybe not much.

  13. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    Could be this lineup is a mirage tho some say they will hit the back of their baseball cards.
    Soriano and Beltran could be done.
    Ells was not supposed to hit for power.
    McCann has been an enigma.
    Tex hasn’t hit since returning from his brief hiatus.

  14. bigdan22 June 10th, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    What did I say a couple hours ago? If you like offense, Scranton is your team. Forget the Yanks.

    1st inning. Line drive single for Pirela. Steals second. Cervelli single, Pirela to 3rd. Zoila lines into a double play. No problem. Wheeler walks and Roller hits a three run bomb.

    Offense. What a unique concept.

  15. cofuzz June 10th, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    I think the only offensive player doing less than I’d expect is McCann.
    The rest are performing predictably. (You may take exception and say Beltran’s struggles are surprising, but injuries are hardly surprising on extremely old teams.)
    This team was built on wishful thinking on offense, plus pitching — then lost a couple of its expected stalwarts while not getting dream production out of Jeter, Beltran, Roberts, KJ, Soriano, etc.
    I suppose the dream could still come true, but I’m starting to see a nightmare coming into focus.

  16. wanzies222 June 10th, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    Donnie Collins ?@RailRidersTT
    3-run homer for Roller. Opposite way. He has unreal power that way. 3-0 RailRiders.

    Donnie Collins ?@RailRidersTT
    I have only seen one lefty with this franchise who has similar power the opposite way as Roller does: Ryan Howard.

  17. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    Is Roller the reason they passed on Morales?

  18. Mottsx June 10th, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Roller will never see yankee stadium. Unless he buys a ticket.

  19. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:52 pm

    Wheeler and Roller sound like they’d fit right in with our geriatric team.

  20. G. Love June 10th, 2014 at 7:52 pm

    C’mon mick,

    $$$$ are the reason they passed on Morales.

    That said, if this Roller kid is hitting, get him up. Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts need to go. Soriano too. They should all get this road trip to produce and no more than that.

  21. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    hell love, folks say they want to get young then when they pass on morales they say its the money…, both sides of the fence?

  22. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    Mick-

    They need a Walker.

    ;)

  23. bigdan22 June 10th, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    “Is Roller the reason they passed on Morales?”

    ——

    I doubt it. But as I pointed out a couple days ago, his situation is similar to Morales. He’s a first baseman/DH only which means, like Morales, he has no present fit on this team while Beltran and Tex are active.

    Clearly it’s Almonte and Pirela/Wheeler being the best current fits. But you’d have to release Soriano/Roberts/Johnson to get there.

  24. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    MTU

    I’d take a Zealous and an Adonis.

  25. mick June 10th, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    Or they could get “hurt.”

    Some of that flock of scouts are headed to Houston to watch the Snakes.

  27. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 8:00 pm

    Adonis would increase the female gate.

    Zealous would pump up the crowd.

  28. Pat M. June 10th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    off to the park go yanks and real sad about the passing of bob welch. always remember his battle with reg in 77 world series. dude could bring it . sad

  29. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    I can understand that.

    They’ll be sellers.

  30. G. Love June 10th, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    mick,

    I never know which side of the fence anyone is on anymore in here or in Yankee-land. They keep hopping back and forth like it’s giant slalom.

  31. mick June 10th, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    LOve, Fences have gates for that very reason.

  32. G. Love June 10th, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    MTU,

    I really wish there was a Yankee with the first name “Delicious”.

    Instead we’ve got “Anxious”, “Delirious” & “Odiferous” of late batting for us.

  33. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    Maybe G. Love-

    But it might be more like a Downhill than a slalom.

    A race to the bottom if they aren’t careful.

    ;)

  34. MTU June 10th, 2014 at 8:07 pm

    G. Love-

    It’s part of Hal’s nefarious plan.

    ;)

  35. mick June 10th, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    It’s more of a roller coaster MTU.
    LoHud moods swing on every win or loss.

  36. wanzies222 June 10th, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    Mike -

    Supposedly the following are available in the LaRussa purge:

    Hill
    Prado
    McCarthy
    Arroyo
    Ross
    Cahill
    Putz
    Parra
    Pennington
    Perez

    It’ll be interesting so see which ones go (not all will, obviously).

    LaRussa’s preference is to keep Prado, maybe Parra.

    Snakes are certainly built like TL would prefer.

    Steve

  37. wanzies222 June 10th, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    Duh…

    Snakes are certainly NOT built like TL would prefer….. wow.

  38. pete22 June 10th, 2014 at 8:14 pm

    I look forward to the days cyborgs will play the game, made up in resemblance to the old baseball greats. Mantle, Ruth, Dimaggio, Williams, etc. They never get hurt or old, and while development costs are high they last forever and don’t require a high salary. Teams which have the best engineers and programmers and data sets will out perform the other teams cyborgs. Perhaps that’s why one MLB team has recently purchased a supercomputer, for cyborg design and programming.

    But that’s some time away. Now the Yankees only hope is positive regression, the whisper of hope that those in the minors numbers can translate at MLB levels, and a big trade or free agent acquisition (next year)

  39. mick June 10th, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Joe Girardi was asked if he would like Robinson Cano in his lineup right now. “That’s not a fair question,” he said.

    answer the question

  44. bigdan22 June 10th, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    So Pirela is 2 for 2. Hitting over .330. Stolen base and just threw a runner out at the plate from LF.

    I’m beginning to think Johnson is the first to go. If Pirela can play OF and 1b, along with 2b and 3b he’s basically Johnson from the right side. Johnson has gotten the fewest ABs. That’s probably a sign.

    After that maybe Soriano, but I think his slump will have to go into July. The Yanks think there’s still a hot streak in there.

    Roberts will never leave us.

    Wave Your Hat June 10th, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    I think Betances landed in the bullpen for a reason. Let’s don’t turn him into the second coming of Joba.
    ///

    I don’t like this; it’s a red herring. Not that this is your intention (since you clearly think things through in your commentary), but it’s not necessarily going to blow up because the Yankees mismanaged Chamberlain. Also, they went from putting him in the BP in 2007 because of convenience, and he was so dominant, that there was pressure to keep him there.

    They still had him start in 2008, and he was outstanding. He got hurt. In 2009, they didn’t see the velo, and fooled around with weird 4-inning stints, etc, prompting even Pettitte and CC to raise an eyebrow and opine that they didn’t see how anyone could succeed under such conditions.

    Betances doesn’t have velocity drag from injuries or for any other reason; what he does have is a new delivery that has made throwing strikes quite manageable; what’s more, he has a much better fastball than Joba Chamberlain – surely that’s obvious; very hard to square Betances up.

    Be one thing if he were a guy who got lit up throwing 2 pitches (like AJ Burnett when he’d get his fastball up and couldn’t locate his curve at all) – he’s not that guy; in fact, there isn’t a good comp from the Yankees that can compare with Betances.

    He’s a guy who has a third pitch that some would kill to be their first pitch – he’s a guy who knows how to get LHB out with intention, how to set them up.

    It wouldn’t be like trying to convert Kyle Farnsworth or Daniel Bard, regardless of the ill fitting comparisons made here with the latter.

    I find it comical that Michael Kay continues to unwittingly make the case for those of us who plead that he should be a starter again, by comparing him to Randy Johnson!

    Well, if we’ve got a right-handed Randy Johnson tethered to the pen, then that is just the biggest Yankee blunder of them all.

    It’s the same weird logic: Well, we signed Igawa, so clearly we can’t differentiate one Japanese pitcher from another, so let’s pass on Darvish (glad they got over it for Tanaka, but still).

    Well, we don’t want to give out another long-term contract, so let’s watch Cano walk out the door (even though this is the one you should have kept).

    Well, we’re inept in developing starters, like with Joba, so let’s leave Betances in the bullpen, for fear of messing him up.

    You can’t use the team’s ineptness to support approaches they take, based on your lack of confidence in how they handle things.

    I see no real downside of changing Betances now. They have the depth to bring up relievers who can fill in, they need a shutdown starter, and if it fails, you have always the option to return him to the BP.

    But if it succeeds? …..

Cold up here though. Wave the Hat today and MG yesterday, always a treat nowadays.

    Pat M, thanks for the shoutout, I would post here more frequently if there was an ignore button, the ratio of interesting posts to ones I want to skip has become so low it’s not worth the effort-Chad does a great job with the blog content so I stop off and read it every day but just can’t stomach the majority of the posts, particularly the self congratulatory ones that feel the need to remind everyone they said something intelligent (allegedly) a few days, weeks, or months ago. Like anyone care.

    I just read about Bob Welch’s passing, that is a shame.

    Bob Welch’s career year taught me a lesson about spring training that will last a lifetime-I lived in the Bay Area while he was with the A’s and one spring he had an ERA of about 20. He would up winning 27 games that year and the Cy Young…

    Good evening.

    Fill me in. is Pirela in the OF, replacing Adonis Garcia? Did Garcia go on the DL with a Hammy?

    Dan-

    On Johnson from SB Nation:

    “According to “major-league officials” Kelly Johnson has been made available in a potential trade. Obviously, this could all be a lot of noise, since the article he was mentioned in was about trade options for the Rangers. I’m not too sure how interested the Rangers would be in Johnson as a replacement first baseman after he’s already shown to be incapable of playing the position at a level that would make him a worth the effort. So far this season Kelly Johnson has hit .216/.279/.392 on a $3 million contract, so while he’s certainly movable, would anyone really want that?”

  63. bigdan22 June 10th, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    But the interviewer didn’t have the guts to ask that question. Which is why the question asked was not just stupid, but cowardly as well.

    Sad about Bob Welch. 57, too young.

    Mark McGwire:

    “I wish there were more teammates like him throughout the game today. He was a fierce competitor,” McGwire said. “Dave Duncan deserves a lot of credit for what he did with him going into that Cy Young season, because he had an ERA of, like, 100 in spring training and it just goes to show you what happens when the bell rings and a light bulb goes on and he wins, what, 27 games? I don’t think there was a player who knew him who didn’t care for him.”

    The first part or your statement would seem apparent as I pointed out earlier. The second part is pure conjecture.

    Which why lawyers always counsel their clients, just answer the question that was asked. Not the question that you think should have been asked. Overall, Girardi handled the question well. I give him a B.

    Pete,
    Doesn’t seem we had more players to look up to when we were younger?
    Has the world changed that much…
    =========================

    When I was a kid players did not move around as much. If they did not get traded they played most of their careers with one team. Players were also seemed more down to earth. They made more than the average Joe, but not so much so they were in a different class. Most worked in the off season. Easier to connect with them. It was also easier for reporters to connect since they could buy a player lunch and pick his brains and so as fans we knew these players better. I doubt that happens much now. I feel like I hardly know many of these players, all you get are cliches from group interviews, hardly any personal stuff.

    Today players are highly paid transients, who are in an economic class most can not even dream of. This probably explains the attraction many have with youth today, especially in a players first 3 years. Most of them play under very poor conditions in the minors, making no more than someone at Burger King who flips hamburgers at minimum wage. They make 500+K when called up for 3 years, but they are hungry. After extensions or arbitration, they enter another level and join the elite if they are any good, and start looking ahead to free agency, and fans start losing their connections with them.

    I might be off base here, looking at the past with rose tinted spectacles, but I don’t like the players as much looking from afar as I once did. I sense other fans feel the same and so yearn for some hungry kid to play over a more talented and highly paid veteran who sees the post season as giving up a months vacation for a measly 400K.

    I like DeCarr, so I can see why they paid him 2x slot (to keep him from Clemson).

    He’s a low mileage HS+ with a mid 90s FB and a couple of offspeed pitches.

    Good signing.

    Via New England Baseball Journal: Third round pick RHP Austin DeCarr will report to Tampa to sign with the Yankees tomorrow. They offered him double the $585,100 slot value for the 91st overall pick, so he’s getting a cool $1,170,200.

My guess is Johnson will be gone soon even if the yanks have to pay the rangers to take him. Substitute roller for Johnson and Pierla for Soriano an this team is better right away. Then when Refsnydar gets a months worth of abs in Scranton it’s sayonara Roberts

    Pete -

    I hear they are looking hard at McCarthy, but may not have a right match to get Prado, so it might be Hill. We’ll see.

    Yeah, someone’s been hacking trisha’s email for years basically. It’s a shame, but I’m pretty sure that’s how a lot of our personal information has gotten out.

    —–

    Obviously, that’s not something I condone if it is indeed true but her demeanor does tend to rub a lot of people the wrong way so I can’t say I’m shocked.

    Social networking sites are the primary cause of personal info getting out. I don’t belong to any of them and I also don’t use my real name or primary email address when registering for blogs like this one.

    That’s why CR admitted that he’s never been able to find anything on me.

    ====

    First and Foremost: EXACTLY ! This is why I’ve been anonymous since day 1. Well, in truth I do use my real hotmail email address which is my first and last name combo, but that’s about it. Why anybody would use their real name on the internet is beyond me.. and no not because I have something to hide, because what you write today will absolutely be taken out of context eventually and/or immediately and I don’t want to have a trail of myself on the internet for eternity.

    a. I don’t know who CR is.
    b. this blog is much better without trisha posting 4x per everyone else’s 1 post (just my feeling)
    c. the hacking stuff sounds like BS, but this blog platform is filled with exploits and a hacker target.
    d. Everyone gets into a heated discussion and calls people names from time to time but with certain posters that are no longer here, they didn’t just have a few posts with heat, they carried on with it for days and weeks.
    e. when a user constantly tries to control what can be posted here, and influence and ignite others to gang up on the person they disagree with, and that happens more often than not, they should be banned forever.
    f. it’s so much nicer to not have the Pollyana Brigade thinking they own this blog.

    It really has been a much better experience here lately and the majority of comments are actually baseball related and no he said, she said and high school immaturity.

    Thank you Chad !

    what disqualifies the Yanks? pitching to offer?

    what is your thought on McCarthy and appeal to Yanks? He has high Ks, low walks, but gives up a bunch of hits

    The Yankees see many of their pitching prospects struggle, so I believe they emphasized pitchers, particularly older ones. I’m glad to read most all are signing.

    Look at the run differential especially with the Yankees next two opponents.

    If the Yankees don’t start winning by Sunday they might be 10 or more game out in the AL LEAST!

    Interesting article here on Jeter and his struggles with the FB, inability to pull the ball and batting 2nd.

    http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs.....-fastball/

    Fortunately, Iwakuma does not have a 92+ fastball and I believe Jete is 4-6 against him.

    I remember Prado was one of the leaders in plating runners from 3rd with two outs, his last year as a Brave. He would be a nice pickup ..

    Enjoyed and agree on your comments of the accesibility of players when we were growing up.

    I saw that article on Jeter.
