  1. RPimpsner says:

    Adams’ triple was unconventional, he hit the ball to short centerfield and he got to second by the time the centerfielder got to the ball but no one was covering third so he paused but then hustled in and they didnt get to the bag in time.

    Baisley supplied the hits for Staten Island. His home run was a shot off the batters eye. Also we almost got drilled in the press box, a line drive foul ball came back and left marks in the wall – pretty fun day in the heat.

  2. huuz says:

    miranda’s splits vs. LHP suck. he’s sporting a 0.421 ops. yuck.

    but vs. RHP, he sitting at 1.003, not bad.

    …if only the Yanks needed another LH bat.

    • whozat says:

      Well, they ARE probably about to lose a big one for the season.

      I dunno…who’d help the roster more? Hawkins or Miranda? I mean…against righties, I’d much rather have Miranda at DH and Giambi at 1B than Sexson at first with Jason DHing, or Posada at DH with Molina behind the plate.

  3. Jake H says:

    Mike how many more innings do you think McAllister gets? Prospect book had him at 71 innings but that didn’t taken into consideration his innings down in the Dominican.

    • Mike A. says:

      Well, there’s about 45 games left in Tampa’s season, which means he’ll make ~9 more starts. Say 6 IP per start, so that’ll tack on another 54 IP to his current total of 114 IP, so 168 IP total.

      I bet they’ll cap him around 140-150 though, so you’ll see him held to strict 5 inning outings or something like that.

      He’s a really big, really strong kid with clean mechanics though, so I think he could handle a little heavier workload.

  4. giselle says:

    i could’ve done tonights AA trenton write up, too, mike.

  5. huuz says:

    de La Rosa is looking good, especially since they made him a starter.

  6. giselle says:

    what’s up with jb cox? his recent numbers are terrible.

  7. Alan says:

    I’m wondering why Ohlendorf is consistently throwing more and more innings/pitches in his AAA starts. Are they trying to stretch him out? I don’t get it at all.

    • Mike A. says:

      Me neither. Scranton does have 6 starters right now (IPK, Ohlendorf, Aceves, Igawa, McCutchen, Karstens), so maybe they’re going to move him back to the pen soon.

      • Manimal says:

        Maybe they bump Rasner to the Pen and give Aceves a start.

        • cult of basebaal says:

          i think another couple of starts like the last one and the “mexican gangsta” will be swapping places with rasner … well, actually, i think anyone who can put together a couple of solid AAA starts will be swapping out with the raz … his window seems to be closed.

    • Mike R. says:

      Two words. Trade value. This smells like trying to sell his starter potential to other team.

      • TurnTwo says:

        not a bad proposition. dont the Pirates like Ohlie, allegedly?

        • RustyJohn says:

          When they sent him down they explicitly said they were making him into a starter again- makes sense- they have plenty of bullpen arms, particularly with Britton and Bruney coming back- is he is 1/2 way decent then maybe they can fetch something for him. The spirit of Randy Johnson will live on with another trade.

    • A.D. says:

      Almost everything they’ve done with Ohlendorf this year has been odd

  8. Alan says:

    I did some lurking around and Chad Jennings has the scoop: http://emedia.thetimes-tribune.....n-AAA.aspx

    Makes sense, I suppose.

    • Jamal G. says:

      If he is able to keep up his velocity throughout the game then maybe it is not such a bad idea to see how he handles being a starting pitcher again.

      • Alan says:

        Yeah, CJ seemed to have a glowing report on his outing tonight. We’ll see how it works for him. Having two pitches wasn’t getting it done for him as a “long” reliever for us.

  9. Jamal G. says:

    Manny just had an adventure in LF, I mean wow.

    • Manimal says:

      hahahah I was just going to say. Did you see Elsbury Looking for the ball and then realize he was sitting on it and then back off. Classic.

    • giselle says:

      lol i watched it and i’m still laughing. he took a gratuitous dive to try and make the catch, rolled over the ball, didnt let ellsbury get it, pulled it out of his ass and held onto it, then threw it in. Triple.

    • Jamal G. says:

      Wow, they just showed a shot of Theo Epstein and his reaction was not good. Epstein shook his head and looked away in clear disgust like “This fucking guy…”

      • Manimal says:

        Could you see them trade him make a 3 way trade that sends Manny somewhere else and they get Bay or Holiday in return? They really aren’t happy and I don’t think Manny is either.

  10. Manimal says:

    Go to Yankees.com and look at the pitchers face thats pitching tomorrow vs Joba. Priceless.

  11. Jamal G. says:

    A scoring decision could be the difference of a no-hitter or a one-hitter for C.C. Sabathia. He has gone 7.1-IP of one hit ball.

    *Aaron Rowand just jacked one. I wonder if me even typing out this scenario jinxed him.

  12. Jim Leyritz says:

    Why not bring up Jason Lane for a righty bat off the bench that can play the outfield? This Justin Christian just makes me want to drink more.
