Game Four: Another rookie takes the hill
'Spring Training don't mean sh*t'

Forget about IPK being all over the place, this lineup isn’t exactly striking fear into the heart of the opposition. They were 1 for 25 with a walk outside of the 4-run third inning. Not gonna get it done like that guys.

Triple-A Scranton (2-1 win over Lehigh Valley)
Brett Gardner: 1 for 3, 1 K
Alberto Gonzalez: 0 for 2, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP, 1 E (throwing)
Greg Porter & Juan Miranda: both 1 for 3 – Miranda drove a run in
Jason Lane: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 BB – walk was intentional
Cody Ransom: 2 for 2, 1 2B, 1 BB
Eric Duncan & Chad Moeller: both 0 for 3, 1 K – E-Dunc GIDP’ed
Steven “don’t call me” White: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 9-5 GB/FB – rock solid
Chris Britton: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3-0 GB/FB
Jose Veras: 1 IP, zeroes

Double-A Trenton & Low-A Charleston were both washed out. No word yet on either makeup date.

High-A Tampa (5-4 win over Lakeland, walk-off style)
Eduardo Nunez: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB
Hit Streak Hilligoss: 1 for 5, 2 RBI, 1 E (throwing) – walk-off single
Edwar Gonzalez & Josue Calzado: 0 for 3 – Gonzalez drove in a run with a sac fly … Calzado walked
Seth Fortenberry: 1 for 3, 1 BB, 2 K
Kyle Anson: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K
Kevin Smith: 1 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B – scored the winning run
Mike Dunn: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
Mark “hey look, I’m okay” Melancon: 1.2 IP, zeroes, 1 K – stranded an inherited runner
Edgar Soto: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 3-0 GB/FB

    Are you guys watching Baseball Tonight right now? Chris Singleton sounds like he’s been doing this longer than Tim Kurkjian…. I believe he’s new this season, but wow does he sound like he belongs on tv.

      that or maybe the BBTNL crew was simply so bad that anyone not named Sterling or Waldman was an upgrade

      I agree, Singleton’s outstanding.

    Do we really have the most knee-jerk fans in baseball? Four games and a 2-2 record yet we want to change the batting order?

      Welcome to New York. There’s a reason why Mike and the Mad Dog get radio ratings around here…

      Knee jerk? I have been a Yankee fan since the early 70’s and have seen many lineups over that time…..Damon at one time was a fine leadoff man , he no longer is and that doesn’t take a knee jerk reaction to point it out…just common sense.

    the only guy that really hasn’t look good is probably Cano. Damon / Giambi has been getting some good PAs with the results simply not going their way. they’re fine

    (though Jeter’s on pace to GIDP 82 times this year :P)

      Cano will snap out of it. He’s too good of a hitter. Don’t worry.
