Game 70: Party like it’s 1999. Or even 1996, either one works.

Yanks' protest denied; Teixeira leads in All Star voting
Game 70 Spillover Thread

It’s been a long time since the Yankees have visited Atlanta: 1,402 regular season games, in fact. Chien-Ming Wang was just a 20-yr old kid pitching for the Staten Island Yankees the last time these two teams met south of the Mason-Dixon line, but now he’s on the mound for the big boys. Wang completed five innings for the first time all season in his last start, and the team will certainly look for him to build on that and pitch into the (gasp!) sixth inning this time around.

Not only will the Yanks have to deal with the uncertainty of a CMW start tonight, they’ll also have to deal with Atlanta’s rather unique closer situation as well. The Braves, you see, have two closers in righty Rafael Soriano and lefty Mike Gonzalez. Depending on the matchups, Bobby Cox will summon either pitcher from the bullpen in either the 8th or 9th innings. Gonzalez leads the club with eight saves, but he’ll be on to face Johnny Damon, Robbie Cano or any of the Yankees’ other lefties whenever they’re due up at the end of the game. Soriano is second on the club with six saves and will face the tough righty swingers whenever Gonzalez isn’t doing his thing. Two relievers, neither one married to a specific inning or the save stat, yet somehow the world hasn’t ended. Amazing.

Here’s tonight’s lineup. They’ll have their hands full with Tommy Hanson, arguably the best righthanded pitching prospect on the planet coming into the year. Something tells me we won’t see Wang take the bat off his shoulders, except for maybe a bunt situation.

Jeter, SS
Swisher, RF
Teixeira, 1B
A-Rod, 3B
Cano, 2B
Posada, C
Melky, LF
Gardner, CF
Wang, SP

            • e mills

              take from it what you will, ultimately I would like to see whatever gives the team the best chance to win. So hopefully Wang gets it going tonight (I did bet on him winning, but that’s neither here nor there) and if he can’t get it going, well then the FO has a decision to make

      Atleast they will have a legit reason to put him on the DL.

    • Tank the Frank

      Wang just wants to hit it out and jog around the bases. No problem.

      Honestly, if Wang ever hit a home run, I’d walk right into the middle of the street and take a ditch.

      Not really… but you get it.

  • Tom Zig

    Hopefully Girardi will pick up on that…

    • Jamal G.

      That’s the thing, look how much crap Joe Girardi got for intelligently bringing in Mariano Rivera into a tied game in the 8th inning with nobody on and two out and Carlos Beltran up at the plate, and David Wright on-deck.

      Although wise, when managers make unconventional bullpen moves, they are criticized endlessly and unfairly if said move ends in an undesired, negative result. That may not matter to us, but I’d wager it does to Girardi.

        Perhaps I should have included that I am not one of those who call for Girardi’s head. I just would like to see him go to Mo if say there are two men on with no outs and Youk, Bay, and Lowell are due up in the 8th…

  • Tank the Frank

    Looking forward to this one. I’ve wanted to see Hanson pitch for a while now. I’ve only seen clips of him and I love his delivery.

    No Damon in the lineup again? Against a righty? That calf must be pretty sore.

    I’m hoping for three plate appearances and three strikeouts looking.

  • Chip

    Another benefit of using two guys in the closers role, you don’t have to pay them as much. Think about it, in arbitration I’m sure the agents will throw out there that this guy has 40 some saves as the team’s closer and this is what other 40 save guys make. The argument falls apart when you drop that down to the 20’s. Also, it’s hard for a free agent to have any leverage with you when you already have his replacement

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    The closer thing is a bit of a different situation than where a team has one reliever that is clearly better than the rest of their relievers. Cox doesn’t do this because he is trying to be a pioneer, he does it because he has two relievers of equal quality that pitch with different hands. Put it this way- if Rivera had gotten hurt and Bruney and Marte were both healthy and effective, I bet the Yankees would have done the same thing. That was the plan for the 7th and 8th coming into the year.

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

      That one.

  • Greg

    We need some length from Wang tonight. 7 or 8 would be ideal. Wang needs to pound that strike zone long and hard. Plant that seed early by going down on the Braves hitters with that sinker. This is a fairly weak lineup so hopefully Wang doesn’t get devoured like he has all year.

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

      Cliffs Notes version:

      We need a long Wang tonight. We want at least 7 or 8. We want Wang to pound it long and hard. We want Wang to plant that seed. Going down would be good. Getting devoured would be bad.

    Fun Fact of the Night: The Braves, as the Boston Red Stockings, are one of only two remaining charter franchises of the National League. The other team is the Chicago Cubs.

    The other 6 members of the 1876 National League, the Philadelphia Athletics, Hartford Dark Blues, St. Louis Brown Stockings, Cincinnati Red Stockings, Louisville Grays, and Mutual of New York all either folded or were expelled from the league within the first four years and were replaced by various other teams.

      Because Terry Francona was hired by Theo Epstien. And since Theo has never made a mistake, that means that every Francona decision was the right one.

      The Red Sox do everything right…they are the model franchise!. They are smart to rest the player coming off of surgery and was struggling. A-rod is just a lazy guy who is not earning his money by sitting.

    Hanson has a pretty violent arm whip there, doesn’t he? He’s not “free and easy”.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      So the Braves should send him to the bullpen so he can let it rip. Turn that 92 MPH fastball into a 99 MPH fastball because he won’t have to “think like a starter” and he can be aggressive.

    • VO

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

    The fact that this elite young starting pitching prospect is having trouble consistently throwing strikes means he should be moved to the bullpen immediately.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      I don’t know if he has that killer instinct though. His stuff doesn’t look right for the 8th inning, and he’s a starting pitcher.

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

        True. He doesn’t have a bull in a china shop mentality. Not enough fist pumps.

        • The Fallen Phoenix

          On the other hand, he’s a gamer who respects the game. So hitters wouldn’t be looking to embarrass him pr show him up when they get to the plate.

  • charlespoet

    What is the consensus about batting the pitcher 8th, rather than 9th? Curious.

    • Eric

      It’s completely insignificant.

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

      Depends on the lineup, really. The Yanks can bat Gardner 8th and let him act as the second leadoff guy.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      It’s largely insignificant, but I think studies have shown that you lose slightly fewer runs when you bat your worst hitter eighth, rather than ninth.

      I’m sure you could find it in either Tom Tango’s book or on his blog, somewhere.

    • charlespoet

      Interesting. Wonder if it would have made a difference last inning, would have changed the way they pitched. Probably not. Think Hanson was just missing control.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    So let’s say there was a special draft tomorrow, and you had a choice between Tommy Hanson and Phil Hughes. Both are as they are right now, and when you pick either one, he comes with the service time he has already accumulated and having burned whatever options he’s already burned.

    Do you take Hughes or Hanson?

    And an aside: this is why national league baseball is stupid.

    • Jacob

      I take Hanson by a nose. I think his stuff is just a bit better.

    • V

      Hanson ONLY because of the service time difference. Hughes otherwise. I like his consistent release point, and think it will turn him into a pitcher with Roy Halladay consistency (whether or not he hits that ceiling is to be known in the future).

      • Ivan

        Roy Halladay is sum high praise.

        • V

          And it’s meant.

          Joba’s climbed higher on the totem pole, and he has the higher ceiling, certainly, but I like Hughes’ chances of hitting his ceiling more.

    someone tell me whats so bad about having gardner start in place of say cabrera/swisher/nady/matsui

    here’s his line
    134 ab .284/.358/.403 with a .356 wOBA and a .319 BABIP which is actually below all of his minor league numbers…2 hrs, 3 triples, 4 doubles, 15 sb, 27 runs, and 11 rbi’s

    here’s swishers line
    212 ab .245/.383/.505 with a .384 wOBA and a .282 BABIP which is right in line with his career numbers…12 hrs, 1 triple, 17 doubles, 0 sb 38 runs, 36 rbi’s

    if you project out gardner to 212 ab’s he goes for 3 hr’s 5 triples, 6 doubles, 24 sb, 43 runs, 17 rbi’s

    o yea and UZR swisher -.2 and gardner 5.5 (last year was 9.5 in CF in 22 games)

      And Swisher’s the best hitter on the Yankees after Mark Teixeira. So yes, Gardner is better than people give him credit for, but no, he should not be consistently starting over Swisher.

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

      Gardner and Swisher have nothing to do with each other. Gardner should not take ABs and PT away from Swisher, but rather Cabrera.

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

        Exactly.

    • Tank the Frank

      Dude if he can hit .285 in the big leagues he can be on my team any day. I have no problem with Gardner.

      • Nick Baratta

        was just saying because ppl are on his case about him being a slap hitter and a AAAA OF…he does alot of little things that go unnoticed

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Swisher is the better hitter- 30 points of wOBA is pretty significant. However, Gardner has definitely improved his play enough that he is no longer a hole in the lineup.

      • Nick Baratta

        like i said i was just comparing the two to show that gardner isn’t all that bad and a difference of about 6 points in UZR is nothing to balk at either…

  • Zach

    wow- did cano hit the bag?

  • Tank the Frank

    Out of Wang and Teixeira… Cano makes the heady play?? Oh my goodness!

  • Ivan

    I thought Cano is not a heads up player.

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

    I think I would’ve thrown my laptop through the screen if they didn’t get that runner.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Well, that’s how you make sure you don’t drop a pop-up. Two guys, two hands.

    But only one Wang.

  • Quikksand

    Damn, that was a close one. Got out of the inning without giving up a run.

    • Dela G

      it felt good to see him get out of that inning

  • Quikksand

    Nice awareness by Cano.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Did someone replace him with Dustin Pedroia before the game? Because only a gritty gamer can make that play. And Cano’s a lazy Dominican who doesn’t hustle or care about baseball.

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

    Robinson Cano is good at baseball.

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

    Is there a “Derek Jeter” chant going on?

  • V

    Biggest (positive) surprise of the season, Melky+Gardner?

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      I guess. I’m pretty psyched about how Hughes has looked, to be honest.

  • Zach

    Great range

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

    Garrett Anderson is a professional hitter.

    Too bad he’s not a professional fielder.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      It’s why he doesn’t get paid the big bucks.

  • Quikksand

    Jeter hits a double!

  • dkidd

    lol garrett anderson

  • Tank the Frank

    Aaaaahhhh he would’ve made it to 3rd.

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

      or swisher

    OMG, Kay doesn’t like a bunt? OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING.

    Why is that knucklehead bunting?

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

    Are you fucking kidding me, Swisher? Are you KIDDING me?

  • Eric

    jesus christ why the fuck is swisher bunting

  • Tank the Frank

    I am completely displeased with bunting in this situation.

  • dkidd

    girardi needs to start fining people for bunting

    • Eric

      I doubt girardi called for it.

      • Zach

        fire him anyways
        and dfa swisher while we’re at it

  • John

    Ok someone PLEASE bring The Jeterian in!

  • JackC

    Bunting in the third with Wang on the mound. Sheesh.

  • Quikksand

    Jeter passed babe Ruth for Doubles.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Hear that? Michael Kay doesn’t think Alex is feared enough as a hitter right now. No Hall of Fame for him. :-(

  • BigBlueAL

    Amazing.

  • BigBlueAL

    So much for Tex getting pitches to hit with Arod hitting behind him.

    • Zach

      just takes one swing

    • handtius

      That just pissed me off in gameday.

    • Dela G

      correct. One swing by a-rod will make the pitchers go back and respecting them

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

    Break this rookie in real good, Al.

  • Dela G

    he def shouldve bunted.

    i know a lot of you would disagree with me, but you gotta play national league ball and move em over

    • John

      not when Hanson is missing his spots..

    • Eric

      congrats on officially declaring yourself stupid

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Not when one of your best hitters is at the plate. I mean, Nick Swisher isn’t exactly our pitcher right now.

      Get back to me when we’re in the 17th.

  • dre

    swisher never bunts i guarantee that genius manager of ours called for it

    • Zach

      you cant guarantee anything

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Yeah because we always know whats going on. Blame it on the Girardi.

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

    The fact that Tommy Hanson is handing out walks like candy makes Swisher’s attempted bunt all the more bizarre. Swisher’s leading the league in walks. The bases should be loaded right now.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Swisher doesn’t like candy. It’s too sweet.

    • John

      and no outs!!!!!!

    • Dela G

      that made me laugh

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

    Ugh. When he’s right, Alex DESTROYS that pitch.

  • http://www.thechuckknoblog.com/ Mike N.

    I’m still stunned that Kay didn’t like a bunt

  • Tank the Frank

    You know it’s bad when pitchers like this are going RIGHT AFTER A-Rod.

    • Dela G

      This is the best overall hitting 3B in the league, and they are throwing it right down the line. Incredible how far he’s fallen

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

    Awful fucking at bat.

    • http://www.thechuckknoblog.com/ Mike N.

      Or not

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      I don’t know who you’re watching. You know Robbie Cano doesn’t get timely hits, and he’s already exceeded his quota of heads-up/gritty plays for this game.

  • dkidd

    that inning sums up the last two weeks

    • Tank the Frank

      Absolutely. More of the same here. This team is slumping big time.

  • Ivan

    A-Rod looks off. Like really off.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    What I would give for clutch hitting.

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

    Of course they don’t score.

  • Jake H

    Cano not taking a pitch is so irritating.

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

    Well that was no fun.

  • Eric

    hey whaddaya know, cano swings at the first pitch, out of the zone and strands two runners

  • Quikksand

    Will they ever hit with RISP?

  • BigBlueAL

    Nice job swinging at the 1st pitch on the floor. Leadoff double by Jeter, and shockingly he doesnt score.

  • Tank the Frank

    Cano needs a dog collar type device to zap him every time he swings at a first pitch that’s not a complete cookie.

  • John

    Robbie cano 1st pitch again!!!!!!!!!!

  • charlespoet

    RISP >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>NY YANKEES running scared from the animal that is RISP.

  • Jake H

    Jeter probably should have gone to 3rd.

    • BigBlueAL

      He still wouldnt have scored even if it was a leadoff triple.

  • Jim

    Cano is terrible

    Jeter just stole his 15th base. He has 11 all of last year. He’s also showed significantly better range in the field. How did he make these changes at his age?

    • Brandon

    Also, like Michael Kay knows anything about prospects. Gorkys Hernandez is actually a pretty damned good prospect.

  • dkidd

    gorkys hernandez is a prospect, no?

    • Ivan

      Oh yeah. Very toolsy prospect.

  • Jake H

    Nate is not a #1 player.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I’m really not sure why everyone is complaining about Cano and the first pitch. He has done it his entire career, and it has led to a pretty fine career for a 2B-man. We want everyone to take pitches and work counts and walk, but if he did that, he would be Chase Utley. It is just not in his skillset- he is a hacker and will likely not walk anyhow, so I want him to swing at good pitches, even if they are the first pitch.

    • Dela G

      well if he was patient, he would get better pitches to hit. He reminds me of ichiro. He never strikes out, but he never takes walks either, just swings at stuff. The difference is that ichiro actually gets hits, and cano swings at schlop

    • Eric

      The complaining is justified. Just because he has been good for a 2B doesn’t mean we can’t want him to be better. It’s not like were all saying “go hit more HR’s please.” Taking pitches is a change that can and should be made to his game.

      • Zach

        he’s also batting .440 this year on the first pitch, .365 for his career. so if its a good pitch i cant complain about his swinging

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        You can want all day. The thing is, for some hitters, saying “be patient” is exactly like saying “hit for more power.”

    • Tank the Frank

      And I’ve been complaining about it his whole career. He doesn’t need to be Chase Utley to work the count and look for a pitch to drive in that situation. His numbers with the bases loaded are awful.

      This year with RISP: .241 .270 .386 .655

      Career with RISP: .267 AVG, .715 OPS

      Swinging at pitches early in the count, and out of the zone is undoubtedly the reason for his struggles.

    • Jake H

      Because when a guy is having trouble throwing strikes you make him throw you one.

  • Ivan

    It’s amazing how overrated McClout is.

    • Greg

      Overrated? He would be second best player on Yankees. You’re nuts.

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

    That was a dirty pitch.

  • Tank the Frank

    When I think of the Yankees with RISP…I envision Rowengartner from Rookie Of The Year standing outside of the batters box, with his eyes pinched shut, scared out of his mind.

    This team is Sooooooooo Bad. I can’t believe Eiland or K. Long haven’t been put on notice yet. Boggles the mind. But apparently the Yankees are happy with a bloated team ERA and awful hitting with RISP. Is anyone even paying attention? It’s only going to get worse folks. Jorge and Jeter aint getting younger, Tex won’t get a pitch to hit rest of year with Alex so bad, outfield is horrendous.. .. On the bright side, Phil Hughes makes a pretty fine reliever.

      Were the Yankees that bad when they won 20 of 25 games and were in 1st place?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Yup this is an apparent newsflash for the Yankees.
      Of course they aren’t doing anything about it.
      Cashman and Girardi are teh sux0rs.
      And Phil Hughes isn’t going to be a reliever next year, he’s going to the starting rotation which so many people seem to despise for young pitchers. That’s what’s mind boggling.

  • Tank the Frank

    Here is when you know your team is not going well, when the opposing pitcher is struggling and you have only 1 hit.

    0-4 RISP AND already 9 left on base.

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

      9 left on base? That would mean they left the bases loaded every inning. So you’re wrong.

      • charlespoet

        Not according to MLB gameday…. if you look at each batters numbers. 5 as a team.

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

          Hanson’s given up two hits, three walks, and one HBP. That’s 6 baserunners.

          It’s impossible to strand 9 men when you only have 6 baserunners.

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

    It doesn’t matter how Wang pitches if the offense isn’t going to push anything acorss. Left the bases loaded one inning, runners on second and third in another. If you’re going to get those runs in, then don’t even bother playing.

      Melky ain’t that fast and Jeter ain’t that good a bunter as of late.

      • Charlie

        i meant with wanger, but then again i wouldn’t trust him bunting there.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    That…was a good pitch.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      If we scored 1/4 of the rnners we left on base..argh!

    Stop booing, you asshats. The ball was in the goddamn batter’s box.

  • Jamal G.

    Pitch was in the damn batter’s box.

    dang people chill out…you all sound like you should be on yankee suicide watch…

    yanks are currently 4th in the AL in BA and 2nd in the AL in runs scored

    their pitching staff is currently 11th in the AL with 1 4.65 era…

    however over the last 30 days the team is 5th in the AL with a 3.77 era…

    bruney is back which is a tremendous help in the 8th inning and marte is on his way back

    don’t forget we do currently lead the wildcard and have the 2nd best record in the AL

    you people are turning into the idiots that run around on the yankees forum…heck half you probably are those idiots…you see the game and you see the problems, but good baseball players fail 7 times out of 10…

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      +1.

      OTOH, Yankees need to start getting hits. Hanson is good, but he’s not THIS good.

  • Dela G

    well can we trust in swisha?

    i hope so

  • Drew

    Jeter passes the baton instead of being clutch. BOOOO!!1!

  • AsianShuutoHeat

    I gotta admit, I love it when bobby cox gets off the bench and has that look on his face. He’s shaking his head a little and I’m just cracking up.

  • Yankee1010

    Maybe this time with a bunch of runners on?

  • Greg

    WE AREN’T PAYING JETER TO WALK! LOOK FOR SWISH TO BUNT HERE. HE GOT THE SIGN FROM JOE.

  • John

    I bet Swish doesn’t come through

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

    Nick…why? Come on…That’s not your game.

  • Jake H

    pathetic.

  • BigBlueAL

    Now Swisher swings at the 1st pitch. Brilliant.

  • Nick Baratta

    o yea and hanson will probably be done after 5 innings being that he’s already up at 72 pitches

  • Ivan

    That’s not acceptable.

  • Dela G

    wow unvbelievable

  • handtius

    Nick Swisher bunts on his own, there are 2 errors on the play and 3 runs score.
