Game 61: Time to go on a roll

Yanks' 30th round pick, #920 overall
DotF(ortenberry)

The Royals are in town. David Ortiz, Dice-K, Manny and Jacoby Ellsbury are banged up. Did I mention the Royals – a team that has been outscored by 63 runs thanks to a 4.58 team ERA and a MLB-low .311 team OBP – are in town?

Thaaaaaaa Yankees’ lineup!

1. Damon, LF
2. Jeter, SS
3. Abreu, RF
4. A-Rod, 3B
5. Matsui, DH
6. Walk-off, 1B
7. Cano, 2B
8. Molina, C
9. Cabrera, CF

On the mound, he of the rotation high 154 ERA+, Darrell Rasner.

Notes: LaTroy Hawkins’ suspension was upheld, so he’s out for 3 games (that’s a good thing) … Chris Britton strained his ribcage while warming up yesterday, and has been placed on the 15-day DL, Dan Giese has been summoned from Scranton to take his spot (I say it’s 50/50 that the Yanks were just looking for an injury so they could recall Giese) … Mariano Rivera has a 1185 ERA+ this year … if you’ve missed any of my draft coverage, go here.

Yanks' 30th round pick, #920 overall

  • Chip

    1185 ERA+ is quite impressive, that must be about what Hawkin’s actual ERA is right?

  • Joey

    Wow Mike, the draft all day and now posting the game thread? I’m impressed…

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Can Chris Britton catch a break?
    Glad to hear Giese is on his way back.

  • Jamal G.

    Is it me or has it felt like weeks since I’ve talked Yankees, Major League baseball?

  • Jamal G.

    Conference call with Gerrit Cole is up, courtesy Peter Abraham.

    • Jamal G.
      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        He sounds like he’s 10.

        • Alan

          You’re not kidding, his voice sounded like nails on a chalkboard.

      • LiveFromNewYork

        He sounds like he’s really on the fence about signing or going to college. The fact that he’s not over the moon about being drafted by his favorite team and he’s weighing college says he’s a really smart dude.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Nah, that’s just so that they can’t use it against him in negotiations. If he came out and said he was really anxious to sign, then maybe they offer a little smaller bonus. Scotty Boras made sure the kid didn’t diminish his leverage at all.

        • Sciorsci

          At the very least it says he understands negotiations and he is good at listening to Scott Boras.

          • LiveFromNewYork

            He’s good at something.

          • LiveFromNewYork

            Remember that story last year about Arod’s slumlord building? Well TMZ picked it up THIS WEEK. They’re not so quick on the uptake those guys.

  • Sciorsci

    Is Posada out of the lineup just because Girardi’s guarding him from back-to-back games right away?

    • Jamal G.

      He wants him to play both Saturday and Sunday and that can’t happen if he plays tonight seeing as how Saturday is a day game.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Maybe the bubble gum is to blame for Cano’s mental lapses in the field.

  • Jamal G.

    ESPN has the Arizona versus (#1) Miami game, 1st Rounders Yonder Alonso (Miami), Jemile Weeks (Miami), Ryan Perry (Arizona) and Daniel Schlereth (Arizona) are some of the top names in this game. 2nd Rounder Dennis raben (Miami) and 3rd Rounder Blake Tekotte (Miami) are also on the field.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Ryan Perry, the Tigers’ first rounder, is out in ‘Zona’s pen in that game.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Chris Hernandez, the kid pitching for Miami, could be the first overall pick in 2010.

  • Jamal G.

    Tampa Bay took Kyle Peterson (C), was that a name to keep an eye on? I swear I’ve heard his name somewhere.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Kyle Peterson was a three time All-American at Stanford, 1st rounder of the Brewers a few years back. Pitched a little in the bigs but blew out his arm. He calls college games on ESPN now, and is in the NCAA baseball video game.

      The pitcher and the catcher just drafted aren’t related (I think).

  • Mike W.

    I understand the point about keeping the negotiating angle open, but I didn’t like the way his voice sounded (Cole) when talking about whether he would sign or not. It didn’t sound good at all to me.

    And yes, he does sound like he is 10.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Nah, don’t worry about it. They’ll lock him up. Might take a while though.

      • LiveFromNewYork

        But how much more can they give him than they normally give? Isn’t it really limited in what they will do?

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Not at all. They can give him as much as they want. All MLB can do is sit and pout.

  • Jamal G.

    For all you College Football fans, Pat White (West Virginia U’s electrifying QB) was selected by the Cincinatti Reds.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Mark Melancon gots dem, whaddya callit, intangibles.

    When he comes up he’ll be under Joba-like rule. The Melo rules.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    What kind of stuff does Kyle Davies have?

  • LiveFromNewYork

    oh Arod. Pretend there’s no one on base.

  • Chip

    Those GIDP are hard to watch. And why isn’t the pitch tracker on Gameday working?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Yankees 1st Round Supplemental pick Jeremy Bleich will be the starter for Stanford tonight in their Super Regional game against Cal State Fullerton on ESPN2 at 10:30 PM-EST.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Thanks for the heads up.

    • Chip

      Wonderful, now I have to decide to watch that or go see Zohan. Decisions, decisions…..

    • Charles in SD

      Annnnd, he was 1-hitting CSU Fullerton into the 6th, I think. Wicked curve that he was sneaking in back-door to righties. Cool.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Michael Kay talks through plays when he should be focusing on what’s going on on the field and then he comments ad nauseum on things no one cares about.

  • Joey

    Why did Kay just call him Jared Cole?

    • Alan

      Because Kay is an awful announcer.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I’m sure the fat guy from the Subway commercials is honored.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Hah. If you have Darrell Rasner on your fantasy team, Jose Molina just screwed you out of a K by hustling to catch that bunt popup on strike 3 in foul territory.

    • Sam

      That’s true, but for people in H2H leagues, one K usually doesn’t make a difference

  • Ivan

    Can Kay shut the fuck up about the bunt play.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      or any play

  • Sam

    For the most part, Rasner has a knack for getting out of trouble this year when he’s been in jams

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I don’t know if any of you guys noticed but PeteAbe later put up audio of a conference call with Yankees’ Scoutind Director Damon Oppenheimer (same link as before).

  • Chip

    Sure I go to one Rasner start this year (against the Twins in Minnesota) and he pitches poorly yet dominates the rest of the league. I’m like a curse to this team I think, I should just stop going to games

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    I just listened to the Oppenheimer audio over at Pete Abraham’s blog: pretty interesting stuff, and the Yankees sound very, very high on Bleich (no surprise). I’m really looking forward to seeing him pitch tonight.

    And Cole’s going to get signed. No way the Yankees let him fall through their fingers.

    Yankees also high on Biddle, obviously; Oppenheimer said he thought he could be a candidate in New York in a year-and-a-half to two years. Essentially, the Melancon track (had he not been sidelined with TJ).

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Damon Opp also said that the Yankees grade Cole’s Changeup as plus right now. Oh boy!

  • Chip

    Rasner is doing a great Pettite “bend but don’t break” impression here

  • Chip

    Man this Davies kid is good!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Ryan Perry is warming up for Arizona right now.

    • BigBlueAL

      Did u see the delivery of the kid starting for Arizona??? looks weird to say the least.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Preston Guillmet? I’m not watching, but I figured that who you’re talking about. That kid’s got a pair, he’s one tough mofo and a helluva pitcher.

        • BigBlueAL

          Never caught his name. Im not saying he sucks or anything, dont know anything about him, although if ur starting a game of this importance at this level u must be a pretty damn good pitcher.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Ryan Perry is coming in to face Jemile Weeks with 1 Out, Yonder Alonso is on-deck. Talk about a crystabll ball.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Good to see Perry brought his flamethrower on the trip to Miami. Wow.

        • BigBlueAL

          Why is he not starting one of the games in this series??? Is he a starter or a reliever??? Bringing him into a game when trailing in the 5th inning, granted by just 1 run, seems like a bit of a waste.

          • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

            He failed miserably as a starter. He’s a full-time bullpener now.

            • BigBlueAL

              OK thanks. Certainly has the stuff to come out of the pen.

              • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

                Wow, 5 first round picks playing in that game. Weeks, Alonso, Perry, Schlereth and Gutierrez (Miami’s closer).

  • BigBlueAL

    If we lose this game, i might throw up.

    • Chip

      Why? Rasner’s pitching well and Davies has been damn good this year. We only really had the one chance early in the first. Hopefully, we can get something going when the lineup turns over. Hell, Cano just took ball one, it’s progress………

      • BigBlueAL

        Kyle Davies has a career ERA of over 6 and has started over 50 games in the big leagues. I dont care how good his numbers r in AAA this year. But in general, losing to KC at home will make me throw up no matter what. And after Melky’s AB, even moreso now…..

  • Chip

    Cano double, bunt him over, I’m loving it. Bring em in Melky!

  • BigBlueAL

    This offense really frustrates the shit out of me sometimes.

  • Chip

    And that’s exactly what they haven’t done this year. Get the man in from third with less than 2 outs, it’s hard to watch

  • Joey

    Anyone else have MLB.tv? Holy shit, working fine the first inning, closed it, came back 10 minutes and I can’t even open it and I’ve been trying the last 45 mins to an hour already. Pay all that money for all these fuckin problems, its bullshit

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Jorge Posada has the biggest fingernails I have ever seen in my life, it is kind of creepy.

  • Sam

    Despite all of Cano’s struggles at the plate, his defense has improved a lot this year

    • BigBlueAL

      Last year he was excellent too, just made stupid errors at times, but his range was one of the best in baseball statistically.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Damn good job by D-Ras there.

  • Chip

    I’ll take it Rasner

  • BigBlueAL

    Where was that in the 1st inning.

    • Jon

      Are you serious?

      • BigBlueAL

        not really.

  • Sam

    Another strong performance from Rasner

  • AlexCT

    any of you guys having trouble with mlb.com or gameday??

    • Sam

      mlb.com and gameday are both not working for me, so I’m using cbssportsline to follow the sox game

      • AlexCT

        thanks, i thouht it might be my connection. i constantly have problems with comcast. they are the freaking devil. but i have no other choice. espn gamecast kindof sucks, ill try sportsline

      • Joey

        I was having a shit load of problems earlier with mlb.tv, but I somehow got them to work now (not sure what I did and I’m not touching anything so I don’t screw anything else up). Although I know it wasn’t me, it was mlb.com

  • BigBlueAL

    Kay and Cone r idiots. The reason apparently Manny got mad at Youkilis was cause he threw stuff in the dugout after an at-bat, and apparently this has been a problem all season with Youkilis and has been talked to by the entire team about it.

    • mustang

      where did you get that from ?

    • Joey

      I saw that on ESPN earlier. The whole team supposivly had to talk to Youk earlier this season because after every bad at bat he would have he would go crazy and throw shit everywhere and Manny called him out on it again and then slapped Youk. lol, good stuff

  • Sam

    Why pinch hit Betemit there and not Posada? Are they just saving him for a potential ph appearance later?

    • BigBlueAL

      assume didnt want to be left with just Moeller catching the 8th inning on. Posada isnt supposed to play tonight, so im sure if anything he could pinch-hit later where if anything he only catches extra innings if needed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      The reason the Yankees kept three Catchers on the roster is so they can guard against any setbacks with Jorge Posada by not losing Chad Moeller and give Jorge Posada a full day of rest when he sits on the bench instead of just six innings of rest. Also, Wilson Betemit has been hitting the ball hard ever since he came off the DL. He is also a bench player and is used to pinch hitting more than a career starter like Jore Posada.

  • Joey

    I’ll tell you what, Miami’s Hernandez (the SP tonight) was very impressive, I hope he has some crazy demands next year so he could maybe fall to us :-D

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      2010. He’s only a freshman.

      • Chip

        So we can take him in the 15th round next year as a DES

      • Joey

        wow, even more impressed now. Pitching like that as a freshmen?

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          I’m 90% sure he went undrafted last year too.

          • Joey

            I was just about to ask… wow

            • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

              Hah. I’m sure Josh Byrnes loves seeing his first round pick sit down and start icing his elbow after warming up in the bullpen.

  • Sam

    Atta boy Melk

  • Chip

    The Melk finally comes through!

  • Joey

    Melk-man! Thank you, finally someone hits with RISP

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Man I hope the Royals don’t bring Leo Nunez in for the 8th. That guy is absolutely filthy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Unbelievably filthy.

      • BigBlueAL

        Soria in the 9th is no picnic either.

  • Chip

    I’m surprised the Raz is out there to start the either, not looking too sharp either

    • BigBlueAL

      Can u blame Girardi for not wanting to go to the bullpen.

      • Sam

        I really think it was the fact that Hawkins wasn’t available that scared him off…

        • BigBlueAL

          LMFAO

  • Joey

    webgem? c’mon…

  • Chip

    Wow, I figured he was coming out there

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I love the HP ump’s K call, if only all umps could follow suit.

    • Joey

      I prefer a little more theatrics (more fun). Like Buckner yesterday

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        His strikeout call is the best thing ever, but I meant a Strike called.

        • Joey

          eh, I like the little finger point thing I guess, never really thought about it too much

  • Chip

    Wow, solid game for Rasner, I’m definitely impressed. Hopefully he can keep this up all season

  • Sam

    Great job by Ras. It’s weird to say but he’s been the most consistent starter this year

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Jay Bruce has gone 2-for-3, 3RBIs, 2BBs, and a Run scored thus far. How does Joey Votto have four Stolen Bases on the year?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Wonder what they’re going to do with Votto once Yonder is ready.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        I have no clue, you think it is a forgone conclusion that Votto is trade bait in a season o two?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    One time great Yankee prospect Ramon Ramirez warming up in the bullpen. Traded for who? Anyone know?

    • Sam

      I want to say Shawn Chacon, it was one of those deals around that time. Abreu maybe?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Shawn Chacon it is. Ramirez and the never-heard-from-again Eduardo Sierra for Chacon. Worked out well for the Yanks.

        • Sam

          Where do I go to collect my prize?

        • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

          Sierra was rated as once having the best FB in the system by BA

    • AlexCT

      shawn chacon

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I would send Bobby Abreu right now, with two Strikes they are not going to issue an IBB in a 1-2 count.

  • BigBlueAL

    im telling u, ARod with the Yanks in even numbered years……….

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Averages 35HRs with 113RBIs in 2004 and 2006, I’ll take those with a big smile.

      • BigBlueAL

        everyone here takes everything i post too serious!!!!!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Whew, check out the LOOGY mowing down all the lefties. Why can’t the Yanks fine pitchers like that?

    • BigBlueAL

      Mike Myers.

  • TurnTwo

    all hideki does is smack base hits. he may not have the power he once did, but he is still a solid everyday hitter.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Seth Fortenberry with a cycle tonight.

  • Sam

    Garbage call

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Fuck the umpire in the ear! Fuck him!

  • TurnTwo

    that wasnt even close to a swing. awful.

  • Joey

    wha?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • Flynn

    Awful call…. Still should have more than 1 run vs this pathetic team

  • Sam

    Why didn’t they appeal to the 3rd base ump? He coulnd’t have thought that was a strike, too

  • pete

    instant.fucking.replay. it will only hurt when it should.

  • Ivan

    Nice Call from the ump

  • pete

    wow buck didn’t even tag him with the ball

  • Matt

    That has to be the worst call I’ve seen this season, even worse than A-Rod’s homer. WOW. And look at buck wave his arm, SIT DOWN

  • Clemson Rob

    Is Bleich gonna pitch tonight for Stanford so we can finally see who he is?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Yessir.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        Heh, I really thought I was the only one who says that anymore.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          I’m pretty sure I got that from you.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Yes.

  • Ivan

    And if you notice Giradi after the bogus K, he had that get the fuck outta here look.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    The Royals really shut move Soria back to the rotation. Nunez is plenty good enough to close.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      I expect them to, I figure they are just making sure of what they have in Leo Nunez. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see Brandon Morrow’s first start.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Sorry Big Blue, it is kind of hard to decipher posts that people are just messing around with from the real dumb ass ones. That’s what smilies are for! :P

      Helluva night in the minors. SWB is tied 12-12, Trenton’s getting no hit, and Seth Fortenberry hit for the cycle.

      • TurnTwo

        dont look now, but Trenton took the lead

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Now I see what you guys were talking about. That strike three call is nasty.

  • Flynn

    Nice job Cano… Putrid

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Good Lord, Ryan Perry is still out there?!? Where’s Jason Stoffel?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Damon Oppenheimer said that Scott Bittle was left in a game for seven innings! He said he will start in Tampa but will need some rest, a lot of rest.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        He’s wrong, it was 4.1 innings, and he had almost a week of rest before that, and hasn’t pitched since (because Mississippi was bounced from the postseason).

  • BigBlueAL

    Pathetic loss.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Tony Pena Jr.’s range saved the game, ouch.

    • TurnTwo

      so thats what it looks like to have a SS who can range up the middle, huh?

      i know… i kid, i kid… im just bitter…

  • Flynn

    Wow… All I can say is gutless. Way to follow up a great win, shit the bed vs one of the worst teams in the majors.

  • TurnTwo

    how do you lose this game? very disappointing.

    • BigBlueAL

      You lose by continuing the trend of being 12th in the AL in hitting w/runners in scoring position.

      • TurnTwo

        oh i know… more of a rhetorical question, but agreed… how many times can you have a runner on 3rd base with less than two outs and not get the run home?

        do they have team stats for that kind of thing?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Yonder Alonso is about to conduct some b’iness.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Holy shit. That’s all you can say about that play.

      • Sam

        That was insane. Even the announcer thought it was over

  • Flynn

    Goddammed unwatchable.

  • Sam

    This one stings. Wasted tons of great opportunities and great pitching from Rasner. I said before this series that anything less than 3/4 would be a major letdown, so they better kick some ass the rest of the series. I mean come on it’s the fucking royals!

  • AlexCT

    why doesnt joe g. come out to argue that giambi call? easily the worst call i’ve seen this year. big situation, late in the game, 2 outs runners on…. its bullshit. even torre would have done his slow walk out to talk it over and let the ump know he’s an ass for even trying to make that call himself. that puts the bottom of the order up in the 9th against a great closer. im so mad right now i can’t even think..

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    WHAT A FUCKING CATCH!!

  • BigBlueAL

    That mightve been the worse piece of announcing in the history of baseball by Karl Ravech in the Miami-Arizona game.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    WHAT A FUCKING CATCH!

    • Joey

      ditto

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Whoops, didn’t know the previous comment went through. Screw it, that catch was so good it needed double recognition.

      • Joey

        absolutely. Definition of game saver: that catch. Also when the ball left the ball I wouldn’t have thought twice that was a homer

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    As good as this Arizona-Miami game is, I am not going to miss a single pitch from Jeremy Bleitch as he goes in the Top of the 1st.

    Another good catch.

        Lmao, there was nothing funnier than expecting to see guys calmy walk onto a grass field but instead watching two big dudes pound the hell out of each other.

          Take away the “big”.

    So 4 first rounders have appeared in this game. Perry, Weeks, Alonso and Gutierrez. Could be 5 if Schlereth makes an appearances.

    people can blame the horrible call on giambi s at bat (and i dont partly)
    but the yankees need to be able to score more runs off of a pitcher who YES claimed had the worst ERA in MLB history for a pitcher who had started at least 50 games.

    this offense has gone from “murderer’s row + cano” (which didnt work out too well) to becomming utterly helpless

    The yankees Second pick, Jeremy Bleich is starting tonight in Stanford’s first Super Regional game against Cal State Fullerton. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2. Start is 7:30 PST, 10:30 EST.

    They weren’t lying when they said Carlos Gutierrez has sink to that Fastball. Not seeing the velocity though.

    • BigBlueAL

      Dont know about their rotation, and apparently their offense isnt all that, but Arizona has one helluva bullpen.

  • TurnTwo

    are we starting a new post for comments for the Stanford/Bleich game?

    • Joey

      I’m guessing continue in here or switch to DotF when it goes up

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      DotF will be up in a minute.

  • Joey

    take those freakin boxers off my TV screen dammit! Someone KO the other already!

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Fullerton is the home team, so Bleich won’t be on the mound until the bottom of the first anyway. I hope Jeff Kaplan is pitching for Fullerton, he’s got a nice and goofy delivery.

    So what’s the word on Stofel, Mike?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Filthy. Took the job after Mark Melancon left. First rounder next year.

    • BigBlueAL

      i think U of Arizona has a better bullpen than the Yankees!!!

    Is anybody weirded out by the row of Catchers in Miami’s dugout?

    These insurance fraud commercials are the LAMEST things I’ve seen on TV in a while.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Ok gents, switch it up to the DotF thread.

    Cool story, the Sandieo Padres called up 2B Edgar Gonzalez recently and he is the brother of Padres 1B Adrian Gonzalez. Must be amazing to play Major League ball with your own brother.
