    Happy Father’s Day and thanks to all for sharing such touching song(s) and sentiments! I would love to be able to watch the Yankees with my father today, but I know that even though he is in the world beyond that he will somehow be there with me watching. I’m sure the same is true for other Lohudders whose fathers are so greatly missed. Go Yanks!

    Good to see Teix back in the lineup. Fingers crossed. Cervy playing 1B (second time out of 3x) for Trenton, FWIW…

    Regarding McCann. While I was in Seattle and then briefly in Oakland ,there was one thing that I noticed that looked to have changed since seeing him in Seattle was his hitch. It seems to me that his hands seem to start in a very inconsistent method. What I mean is that guys with hitches ( Mays / Aaron ) always triggered this timing on switch to specific point in the pitchers windup, the most common was when the pitchers plant foot was about two inches from landing , or when the shoulder turned forward to the plate. Seems to me that McCann’s approach is never the same during an at bat. I think he’s over thinking, thus pressing and then of course he’s head is constipated due to the shift. I looked back at some spring training video as well as his time with Atlanta. He looks the same however his hands, leg kick are not in scync and are not consistent. An opinion that’s all

    Are any on this blog truly content with an outfield of Ichiro, Ellsbury and Gardner and their eight home runs? Is there something wrong that a team steeped in such a history of power put forth such an outfield? Even during the war years, an outfield of Bud Methany, Russ Derry and Johnny Lindell could generate more home runs in the “The House that Ruth Built.” What was Cashman thinking or was he?

    What was Cashman thinking or was he?

    i don’t think Cashman was thinking that Beltran would go do something in Tampa and crash over a wall

    i agree though that Cashman is too complacent in trying new things i do not subscribe to the checkpoints he uses to evaluate the team

    In my four point plan a few days ago, I recommended that the Yanks increase the profile of Taylor Dugas by first raising him in the Trenton batting order and then promoting him to Scranton when Almonte gets promoted to replace Soriano. I see Dugas is batting first today. I don’t think I’ve seen that before. Could be because Mason Williams is out of the lineup but Dugas could take Cervelli’s place in the two spot when Cervelli leaves this week. Either way, Dugas is an organizational asset that should exploited. His career OBP is truly remarkable. He could possibly be a serious table-setter in the major leagues, something as Hank has pointed out on numerous occasions, the Yanks already have in abundance.

    I wonder exactly what Sanchez did to justify this treatment. Still MIA. He’s turned out to be pretty worthless hasn’t he?

  7. austinmac June 15th, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    Hank,

    No, an outfield must produce runs. We already have a no power 3B situation and an oft injured 1B. Plus, the worst DH stats in the league. I wonder why we have trouble scoring.

  8. Pat M. June 15th, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    Check that, since seeing him in Anahiem…..Miss my Ad Min person who made me appear more together that what I really am. My poor typing skills were less on display when our pal Greenberet7 was on the scene. Man, he had some serious typing skills. Miss that man

  9. bigdan22 June 15th, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Contrary to last night, this is perhaps the best lineup the Yanks can muster right now. I’d actually rather see Johnson in there than Roberts but once again, Johnson isn’t playing 2nd base, his best position. I guess he’s been such a great defender at third base this year the Yanks just can’t live without him at the hot corner.

    Nuno, with this ballpark, and these Yankee outfielders, should be pretty competitive today. I wonder if the Yanks will manage an extra base hit?

  10. MTU June 15th, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Pat M.-

    Whenever there were typing mistakes by GB it was “Killer” who was always at fault.

    Poor dog got blamed for everything.

  11. jackamir June 15th, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    For now and now only this is the A lineup. Girardi, with a day off looming, is going with his best……Making this game an essential get.

  12. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West June 15th, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    At least the outfield can play defense. KJ is a disaster at 3rd – I blame him for the loss last night. He leaves that ball alone and it goes foul. Who knows what happens next, but im thinking it couldnt be much worse than 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Kuroda is awful too. His decline the 2nd half of last year is exactly what we are getting from him this year. 16 million dollars wasted.

    It really is too bad Beltran had to go and flip over that wall, he was starting to heat up. If someone were to ask me my opinion on whether or not to have the surgery though, i would say play through it. Removing the cyst is not always a 100% successful and cutting into someone’s elbow during the season can cost someone the rest of the season. Plus, cortisone has shown some very good results. hoping Carlos gets his groove back soon.

    Mcann(‘t) i like his defense, his leadership and work with the pitchers and his willingness to play in the field. I, however, have been spoiled by a nice lineage of offensive catchers and i really miss that. Hope he can at least figure out the power part.

    Chicken Pita (tex) not even sure what to say about this guy, he’s so good for a week and then poopy for 3. The effects of taking PED’s is taking it’s toll on him.

    Solarte – this is a normal slump for baseball players, right? He’s going to come back and light the world on fire again, right? I hope, because when he’s hot he’s fun to watch. What i really like about him is even in this extended slump – he’s having long battles at the plate. I think he’s going to stick around a while.

    That’s my take – Happy Father’s day to all and im heading out to the game. It’s a little chilly this morning, but supposed to be 69 and sunny at the start of the game.

  13. austinmac June 15th, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    Michelle,

    Good thoughts. Enjoy the game.

  14. Tyler June 15th, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    I know these guys get beat up and I respect that having played sports but Tex has to have one of the worst pain tolerances in the world. Have to think if his salary depended on playing last night, the guy is out there. I could see if it was a concern about his wrist but rib cage tightness is ridiculous. Everybody feels tightness in different areas every single day.

  15. MTU June 15th, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    Michelle-

    Thanks for the expert medical opinion.

    Have fun.

  16. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West June 15th, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    Thanks guys – have a nice day. Also Tyler – i agree with you – His pain tolerance is worse than my 2 yr olds. But, i also think it’s a result of him taking PEd’s and the wear and tear that puts on one’s system. He also is very mental, when his game is off, it’s almost always because he’s overthinking his injury or worried that he’s going to become injured.

  17. ScottinSJ June 15th, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    1 HR on this 8 game trip. It’s actually stunning that they managed a 4-game win steak with this offense. The bigger parks work to their advantage, as they partially work against their opponents. Not the case at YS, where the team’s record is far worse.

    TinMan Tex, Blackhole Beltran, and McCann’t may be the least dependable 4, 5, 6 in baseball.

    Well, we get to watch Nuno struggle to get through 5 today. :(

  18. Missing Cano June 15th, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    michelle thanks for your comments especially on Tex

    i often wonder what Miguel Cabrera will be like when peds use catches up to him

    resigning Kuroda shows the lack of imagination in the front office coupled by the fact that johnson continues to take up a 40 man roster spot

    it is an average team staying in the race due to other teams being average with the decline and negative effects of peds taking its toll on team’s offenses

  19. Tar June 15th, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    The first indication of Tex being the next American Idle was….. with the game on the line earlier this year him not taking the extra base because he was being careful. If I remember correctly that cost us the game and is inexcusable IMO. Normal situation ok, but game on the line you don’t run carefully.

  20. Pat M. June 15th, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    I’ve always liked Kuroda from his days in Los Angeles. However his late season swoon wasn’t some mystery looking forward to this campaign. I could see him coming back but at a lesser role of importance. I always had hoped that The Bombers would have made a play for CJ Wilson that winter and clearly my concerns regarding Yu Darvish were over stated. Then you add The Cuban outfielders to that mix and you have a completely different looking ballclub playing in The Bronx and a monster in Soler on the near horizon…..

  21. Cashmoney June 15th, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    you gotta be kidding Chad, Oakland has a 82 mil payroll and Yanks has a 210 mil payroll!I guess coming from a none yankees fan I understand your consolatory view.

    Be interesting to see what Beane could have done with Yankees payroll.

    What a beautiful 2 days we got for Fathers day weekend… Food is all prepared, beers on ice, all that’s left to do is drink, grill, and watch (some of) the Yankee game.

    Happy Fathers day to those who it applies. Go Yanks!

  23. Pat M. June 15th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    Cashmoney….I need Pineda back in the Yanks rotation by August 15 the latest

  24. Tyler June 15th, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    Michelle-

    I don’t know if he took PED’s. Could be but I hate accusing someone of that with no tangible proof. I just think the worst thing about contract sports (really outside of hockey) is that these guys get paid and they are set regardless. It’s nice for them in case of injury but some athletes get me when they did just don’t feel the need to play.

  25. austinmac June 15th, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    I understand some of the team’s moves and non-moves. They did some smart things such as not re-signing Swisher and Granderson. It is the complete disinterest in Darvish and the Cubans that still irritates me. Stupid baseball-wise and economics-wise. Yes, the team would be in so much better shape now and going forward.

  26. Cashmoney June 15th, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    new one…
