  • On Nick Green's play yesterday...

    I was reffering to the misplayed DP grounder in the bottom of the 8th when he made a 2-run error on the grounder hit by Chone Figgins.

    The 3rd inning (I believe) potential DP A-Rod throw was a little off line, but it looked like Green still had time to adjust.

On a different play, when Abreu threw to second and barely got the runner, Sterling said Jeter was closer to the bag but that Green got between them and took the throw, barely beating the runner to the bag. So that makes one error, one misplay, and one dubious play resulting in an out. Other than that, not a bad day at the office.

      I think your on a different play.

        Not the first time, Tony, not by a long shot.

          Pavano's right armpit is hurting now but he says it's nothing serious. It is unlikely for him to start on Thursday as was speculated and he is seeing a doctor today.
          At least Torre is using the mopup guys. Remember when Ron Villone was the mopup? He'd do great, then Joe would hide him in the basement or under a cave again, never to be seen by good company. Now, he's getting to be a little Scott Proctor, getting lots of innings. At least Proctor's arm hasn't fallen off yet.

          Now why did we even need Proctor when we'd had about a 7-run lead by then? Dotel and Bruney can't do an inning apiece? I thought that the quality of a mopup guy is to do 2+ innings and not give up more than 2-3 runs. I figured that would be their role, so even if we had gotten 2 innings out of them, we could've still gone to Mo, be it a save situation or not. that would've avoided Scott Proctor altogether and avoided that embarassing non-inning that Farnsworth pitched, which included allowing a run to score, loading up the bases and not getting a single batter out. Heck, I'd trust a call-up guy to do better than this.

          Not a totally bad strategy preceding a day off, but when everyone's been running on fumes (clicking on all cylinders, no rest), I think that giving Proctor and Farns an extra day off would've helped. Mo could've pitched the 9th if the score was 100-0, as if he didn't, he would've had two extra days of not pitching, and his remaining sharp is more important to me than any non-save situation. Definitely not overkill from my viewpoint, since our boys lost the first two games. He needs to pitch in order to avoid rust.

          • I was interested in Torre's comment about everyone being beat up after the 21-game stint. Certainly applies to the pitching staff. But I thought he did a good job making guys sit out to get some rest, even if they still had to DH. Then he mentioned in so many words that A-rod might really be the one who could use a day off the most. And that made me wonder... I don't know much about A-rod's personal life. Is there anyone on the team to whom he's close, a real friend? Is he married? got kids? I've often thought about Matsui and what he did after a bad game or a tough series -- I think he's single, and going home to an empty apartment can be hard. What's A-rod got for a support crew? Anybdody got a clue what these guys do to unwind besides hit the gym?

              A-Rod is married and I believe he does have kids. I suggest you discuss this ast the A-Rod thread.

              I fear that I inxed Pavano. The Yankees are proceeding as if he can still pitch and he still start tonight in Columbus if a doctor clears him.

                As for 'Real' friends on this team...I do not believe he has any.

                • Because I live within a few miles of NYC and that there's been rain and grayish skies, there may be either a rain delay or a postponement tonight.

                    I`m not certain but I think he is good friends with Damon.

                      It rained all of Sunday...raining all morning and mid noon...then again at night and all day today.

                      I don't think they play today.
                      I'm sure they could all use the day off.

                          I hadn't realized it rained that much. I've just been working so mostly being home, commuting, working, commuting back, sleeping, then doing this all over again.

                          I went to the grocery store today, and it was raining. Looking outside the window, all I see are grayish-blue skies. Fat chance having the game start at 7:05 tonight.

                          Yeah, an extra day's rest will be find. Of course, expect a DH on Wednesday or Thursday. If not, the game may not be made up.

                            I'll tell you after his next 2 starts. He's only got 11.2 IP under his belt, so that's a reaaalllllllllllly small sample size.

                            As a Yankee, I expect him to be scouted to death, so he'll have to make an extra effort to keep fooling people.

                            May as well have some fun:


                            Mike Myers has the most all-time appearances

                            Myers reigns as king of lefty specialists
                            Southpaw has most appearances in baseball since '95

                            NEW YORK -- In 1997, as a pitcher for the Mariners, Mike Myers and a Seattle television station wanted to see just how many people would recognize Myers on the street.

                            So they came up with idea of sending him to Pike Place Market, a famous fish market on Seattle's waterfront, to see if people would buy food from him just for the novelty of meeting a Major League Baseball player.

                            Myers' item was frozen fish sticks.

                            "People just gave me funny looks," said Myers, who is now the Yankees' left-handed specialist.

                            Such is the life of a baseball "LOOGY" -- a nickname coined by former STATS Inc. writer John Sickels for a (L)eft-handed, (O)ne-(O)ut (G)u(Y).

                            But among specialists, Myers is revered. In an online statistical breakdown of the historical use of LOOGYs by The Hardball Times, Myers is referred to as "His Majesty, the Big Kahuna, the King of LOOGYs," the "Hardest of Hardcore" of them all.

                              I think it's too soon for that.
                              Remember Brad Halsey? I mean they were calling him the next Andy Petitte after he beat the Dodgers after one game.

                              I say relax...he just came up to pitch one game.
                              Whatever else we get from him is gravy.

                              I'm excited to see who all the call ups for Sept. 1st are gonna be.

                              (Crossing fingers and praying JBC is one of the call ups.)

                                I guess, as a Tiger fan I should root for a double header. That most certainly would take Jorge out of the line up for at least 1 game, and looking at Sals' numbers...jeeeesh, you might as well have the pitcher bat for him. Although, Vance Wilson isn't pudge he would at least win the positional match up with Sal. Hey, anything that can make that FILTHY line up a little weaker, can't hurt...the Tigers side anyway.

                                I know what happens now though, all my Sal hating is going to lead to him having a 4-5 3RBI day, and I say bring it, and hope that Vance can have an equal or better day? Oh well, can't wait for this series......but I guess I have to wait.
