Game 39 Spillover Thread

By

Bringin’ in a thread from the bullpen. Fear the middle relievers.

Categories : Game Threads
  • Brooklyn Ed

    wow, A-rod missed that pitch. it was it.

    • Mike Pop

      He could have hit it, but didn’t want to cause he doesn’t care about the game.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        He probably tipped the Catcher to what pitch he was looking for.

        Fucking guy tips more than Wall St broker after 6 martinis.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I have no confidence in this Spillover Thread.

    • kunaldo

      This Thread needs to be DFA’d

  • Pasqua

    Anybody getting the sense that a majority of the lineup is thinking homerun in every situation? I realize that’s the ideal result, but the swings seem to be suffering. This is one of the downsides, in my opinion, of the stadium being a potential bandbox.

    • e mills

      posted that same thing on the last thread

      • Pasqua

        apologies. just got on here.

        • e mills

          no worries bro

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    I’m going to laugh when we sweep this 10 game homestand by an aggregate 10 run margin.

    • John

      11 runs minimum right? A-rod’s walk-off put us up by 2

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        That’s right. My bad.

      Seriously.

  • e mills

    smooth for a big guy lol

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Gold Glove.

  • Mike Pop

    Damn man, wanted the Nets to get a higher pick!

    • Charlie

      Same, and I feel really bad for blake griffin

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        I read somewhere (don’t remember where) that the Clips and Warriors should admit they both made a mistake and trade Baron Davis for Corey Maggette.

        They both excel in their old team’s systems and suck in their current team’s ones.

        Griffin is a beast, and the Clips are lucky. Now, they just need to whack Mike Dunleavy and they’ll be relevant again in no time.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      We all want lots of things, Pop.

      Are you transferring to SHU this sem.?

      • Mike Pop

        Nope, after next year. Hopefully.

        Two year degree at my school first.

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          Ah, word. I just put in my application for grad school at Sacred Heart.

          • Mike Pop

            Awesome. A smart guy like you, you got it.

            • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

              Aww, Pop. You’re makin’ me blush.

              • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                GET A ROOM, YOU TWO!

                Matt ACTY/BBD = Alex Rodriguez
                Mike Pop = Kate Hudson

  • e mills

    he gets this guy, he should be ok for the 8th

  • Brooklyn Ed

    haha, Cervelli thought it was the 3rd out.

  • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

    Heh, looked like Cervelli forgot what out that was.

    • pat

      I dunno about that, he does that alot on strikeouts.

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        I’m not to sure, it just looked a little exaggerated because he jumped out took a couple steps over and threw it, but you never know.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    Uh guys, have you seen what Dontrelle Willis is doing for Detroit?

    6.1 IP and just one hit. Against Texas.

    • pat

      blind squirrel, broken clock.

    • Brooklyn Ed

      Yep he’s back. /scarasm.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Nice, I’m rooting hard for Dontrelle to make a comeback.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    This long at bat is hurting his chance to pitch the 8th.

    • e mills

      105 pitches…I’m not sure, I think I’d send him out. AJ went 124 the other day

    • e mills

      of course, Bruney should be ready

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Here’s my don’t bother waiting, off the top of my head NBA mock draft:

    1-Clips: Blake Griffin (duh)
    2-Grizz: Ricky Rubio (too much downside in Thabeet)
    3-Thunder: Steven Hunter–er, I mean, Hasheem Thabeet
    4-Kings: Jordan Hill (bigger need than Harden)
    5-Wizards: James Harden (to pair with/replace Agent Zero)
    6-Wolves: Brandon Jennings
    7-Warriors: Jrue Holliday
    8-Knicks: Stephen Curry (he’s legit)
    9-Raptors: Tyreke Evans
    10-Bucks: DeMar DeRozan
    11-Nets: Earl Clark
    12-Bobcats: Gerald Henderson
    13-Pacers: DeJuan Blair
    14-Suns: James Johnson

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

      Earl Clark does not sound like a basketball name.

    • pat

      Oh man I would LOVE to see a guy with Curry’s spot up shooting ability in D’Antoni’s offense.

      • Mike Pop

        I see him getting shut down by NBAers. Plus, from what I’ve seen his defense is not very good.

        I think he’ll be serviceable, but nothing special.

        • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

          I think he can score with anybody, even NBAers. He will get shredded on defense, but in D’Antoni’s system, that is ok.

          • Mike Pop

            Eh, hopefully for you Knicks fans. I want to see the Knicks succeed but they’re taking a big gamble(Lebron, Wade, etc).

            Hopefully it works out for them/you. Call me skeptical about Curry though. Fun to watch, hope it works out.

            Wait till Jay-Z talks Bron into coming to Jersey ;)

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              Umm… everybody is taking that gamble. Everyone.

              We have NYC to offer, though. All they have is Detroit, or Chicago, or something else dumb and unappealing.

              • Mike Pop

                Naw, not everyone. Everyone is not banking on getting a superstar(or two) like you Knicks are. This is the only way out of the gutter for you.

                Chicago is appealing.

                • Nady Nation

                  Chicago is NOT appealing. You think he wants to live in MJ’s shadow?

                • Mike Pop

                  Oh ya.

                  Going to a team that has good young talent isn’t appealing.

                  Also, if he does what MJ did, even better. He could go down as the best of all time, just like he could if he did it anywhere.

                  Ultimately, I don’t know what he is going to do. Would be cool to watch him play every night or so with the Knicks, would be freakin’ awesome.

                • Nady Nation

                  Amen. I agree the Bulls have tons of young talent, I just think that he’d want to go somewhere to create his own legacy, not to try to one up Jordan’s.

              • Nady Nation

                Also, I don’t see what we have to lose. Like we could’ve even made it to the playoffs if we DIDN’T clear cap room? Since when is it ever a bad thing to have tons of cap room?

                • Mike Pop

                  It’s not a bad thing at all.

                  I’m just saying, it is your only way out of the gutter.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  I’m just saying, it is your only way out of the gutter.

                  I concede your point. If things were different, they wouldn’t be the same.

                • Nady Nation

                  True. Although even if we don’t get Lebron, we’re in position to make a run at Doc Howard the year after, or trade for CP3 since the Hornets are desparate to shed payroll.

                • Mike Pop

                  Ya, I guess you’re right.

                  I don’t understand the NBA Salary Cap all that well as you guys do.

                  Do I think it’s dumb to just wait for that FA class? Naw, but it’s an obvious risk but no doubt it is one worth making when you are talking about a player of Lebron’s un-earthly level.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  Shit, even if we don’t get LeBron, we still have our pick from:

                  Wade
                  Joe Johnson
                  Bosh
                  Amare
                  Nowitzki
                  Yao Ming
                  Michael Redd

                • Mike Pop

                  Nowitzki will never leave Dallas ;)

                  You hear he got some chic pregnant and now won’t talk to her? Damn. He is my favorite player though, as I cheer for the Mavs.

                  His D is wack though, but ya it is a really good FA class.

                  I thought you hated Amare and Dirk though.

                • Nady Nation

                  Exactly, Pop. Lebron is a once in a lifetime talent. It’s rare that you’ll find someone who is actually WORTH tanking two full seasons, just for the possibility of signing. But he’s it.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  I do hate Amare and Dirk.

                  I’m just pointing out that the other reason our plan to dump two seasons and wait for LeBron is that we’ve got several backup plans available if Evil Plan A happens to not come to fruition.

            • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

              Lol. I always loved that idea. He would leave Cleveland or not come to NY because a friend talked him into it.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          I see Curry as a Mo Williams clone.

          He’s not going to blow by anyone, but he can knock it down from everywhere and doesn’t really have a hole in his game.

          • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

            Good comp there.

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              THAT IS HOW YOU DEBATE!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Nady Nation

        Scouts are raving about his transition to PG last year too. His passing skills are apparently outstanding. I’m a big Curry guy, I hope he falls to us.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      I think you are underrating Thabeet. I see no reason he cant be a Tyson Chandler type. Also, no Lawson in your top 14?

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Yeah, he could probably be that…but his offense isn’t going to be good at the NBA level. Plus, he’s just not strong enough to be a huge factor on defense.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        No, no Lawson in my top 14.

        He’s a good college player, but there’s at least 4-6 PG’s I like better than him in the NBA. I’d put Eric Maynor in front of him too.

        He’s both smaller and slower than you think.

    • Mike Pop

      Not a big fan of Lawson?

      • Arman Tamzarian

        I’d have a hard time blaming Griffin if he came out and refused to play for the Clippers

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Lawson will go somewhere between 14-20, but I can’t see him any higher than the Pacers. Too many better options in front of him.

        DeMar DeRozan might be a good 8 inches taller than him, for example.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Don’t the Knicks have enough ‘Curry’s on their roster?

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        http://www.sadtrombone.com

        Don’t worry. The other one is just sticking around to be cap filler to round out a sign-and-trade deal for Chris Bosh next winter.

  • Nady Nation

    CC is an absolute beast.

    TSJC – Steph Curry at 8?

    • Nady Nation

      Damn, waited a minute too long.

  • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

    Who pitches the 8th? They have Zaun(S), Andino(R), and Roberts(S).

    A)CC 105 pitches but dealing
    B)Coke our set-up man while Bruney wasn’t here
    C)Bruney who obviously just got off the DL

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

      Coke isn’t available, he threw 38 pitches last night.

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        My bad totally slipped my mind.

    • pat

      Fuck it send out the gangster for the 8th and 9th.

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

      Bottom of the order, send CC back out there. That’s what he gets paid for.

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        I think that would be the ideal choice.

        • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

          But that might also be the ideal choice for Bruney to come back against.

      • Mike Pop

        BUT TEH PLAYOFFS!11!!!

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    AMAZING back scratcher.

        Who’s cooking Pasta? I keep the thing in my computer desk.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

      Quite.

      I made a salad today. I bought a package of already-cooked shrimp and a box of lettuce mix.

      I tossed the shrimp in with the lettuce.

      A little salt and pepper and lemon later, instant salad!

            You fill them with what you want, for me it is shrimp, cheese, black beans, pico, jalapenos, and olives.
            (1 or 2 minutes)

            Then cook for 8 or 9 minutes.

        Cervelli’s D is for real – that much is certain

        I agree, Becca – he probably needs a little more time for the bat to catch up. Still – you wonder if he’s ready to step in as Po’s backup in 2010.

        Bruney looked like he didn’t miss a beat

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          If he continues to be competent with the bat, Cervelli will be the backup in ’10.

    I really hope this Melky is here to stay. I know he just grounded out, but he saw 6 pitches and looks so much better at the plate. I hope he keeps progress in his current direction. It would be nice to have him and A-Jax in the outfield doing well.

    • DreDog

            I think they’ll go hard after Bay. They have 26 mil coming off the books for LF in Damon and Matsui, and it has the double effect of weakening the BoSox. Its like getting double the bang for your buck.

    • pat

      Well seeing as though we’re on a bit of a win streak I’d say he should be pretty relaxed and playing with house money. Hopefully the yanks give him some runs early and he can settle in. This is a pretty good hitting orioles team though so you can’t be too sure.

      • Tank the Frank

    No, Michael Kay, we didn’t get rid of Edwar instead of Veras because Edwar has an option. We got rid of Edwar instead of Veras because Edwar has pitched worse than Veras.

    Edwar: 5.19 ERA but a 1.904 WHIP and 6 HR in 17 IP
    Veras: 6.61 ERA but a 1.531 WHIP and 2 HR in 16 IP

    Of the two, Edwar clearly deserved to disappear more. The DFA vs. demotion to the minors is ancillary.

    • rally caps

      i don’t understand why there haven’t been more stories about how impressive it is that big papi’s slump isn’t effecting his defense. A close look at the numbers will show that his fielding percentage this year is remarkably consistent to those years when he was in his prime.

  • Dave

    I know a lot of people look at Tomko’s career numbers and say he isn’t worth keeping on the roster….but he seems serviceable to me. Relief pitching is volatile right? Is it outside the realm of possibility that he can be a decent reliever with a mid 3′s era? I trust him far more than veras right now at least.

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

      I think he’s a fine middle innings option. Not a guy you use in high-leverage spots, but a guy you can bring in in the 6th inning to bridge the gap, or trust to finish off the job in a blowout. I’ve always been fan. He has very good stuff, it just never came together for him.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        The ‘tag’ on him has always been his makeup wasn’t great, but I haven’t seen any evidence of that yet. But half of these tags are bullshit anyway. Its just as likely he had a blockhead manager who thought every run he gave up reflected on his character somehow.
