Game 121: Win or lose, your redeye awaits

Reforming the amateur draft
Perhaps we should start calling him K-Mac

I always wondered what ballplayers preferred in a situation like this. Take a redeye home, sleep on the plane, get some more Zs at home, and spend the day with the fam, or get a good night’s sleep tonight and fly home tomorrow? I’d opt for the former. I’ll actually be taking my own redeye tomorrow night, at around the same time the Yanks will take theirs (if they take it) tonight.

The Yanks will look to close the season series against the A’s with a win against rookie Brett Anderson, a feat they’ve accomplished twice so far this season. They hit him up for five runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings back in April, and then got him for four runs in 6.2 innings last time, on a night when Joba Chamberlain sparkled.

Anderson has been pretty good lately, though not as good as he was during his string of three straight scoreless appearances — which ended, by the way, in that July game against the Yanks. He’s had decent starts against Boston, Texas, and Kansas City, but Chicago tattooed him five days ago, to the tune of seven runs over five innings. Anderson is already over his career high of 120 innings pitched in a season, and is considerably ahead of his 105 innings from last year.

For the Yanks it will be Chad Gaudin, making his first start in pinstripes. You can read a bit on Gaudin’s history here. He’s appeared for the Bombers twice out of the bullpen, once pitching well and once pitching pretty badly. The Yanks hope to get five innings out of him tonight, at which point they’ll likely turn the ball over to Brian Bruney, Phil Coke, Phil Hughes, and Al Aceves for a tune-up before Boston. None of these guys have pitched in a few days.

As expected, Jorge gets the day off.

Lineup:

1. Derek Jeter, SS
2. Johnny Damon, LF
3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
5. Hideki Matsui, DH
6. Nick Swisher, RF
7. Robinson Cano, 2B
8. Melky Cabrera, CF
9. Jose Molina, C

And on the mound, number forty-one, Chad Gaudin.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Let’s go Yankees!

  • JSquared

    Zach McAllister has 8K’s through 3 innings.

    • JMK

      Wow. That’s awesome! He’s certainly making a statement for his inclusion in roster expansion.

      • JSquared

        Yeah, you just don’t know if we’ll ever see him full time, or if he’s a trade piece…

        • JMK

          But it sure would be nice. Still, I’m not opposed to trading him for a nice piece.

  • NJY

    Tough matchup for GoDan…

  • Accent Shallow

    Peter Abraham has some Joba-related info:

    He’s going to have 6 more regular season starts.

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

      Yeah, they said that on the pregame.

      6 more starts, about 6 IP each puts him at around 165 IP for the season. More than I thought, but I’ll trust their judgment.

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

        +1

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

          The main thing is they’re keeping him strong at the end of the year. Pitchers tend to get hurt when they’re fatigued, and all this extra rest at the end of the year should avoid that pitfall.

  • Little Bill

    Gaudin will do fine. His numbers aren’t that bad, of course he was pitching in San Diego. The A’s lineup is a good one for him to face and do ok. Thanks to AJ and CC the pen is rested and there’s a day off tomorrow before Boston. Hopefully they can close out the west coast trip with another win.

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

      He’s done well in this ballpark when he pitched with the As a few years back.

  • AJ

    Why’d Halladay have to blow up today? And how is Buchholz amazing all of a sudden?

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

      What difference does it make? They’re not catching the Yanks anytime soon, and Texas is winning right now.

  • Dela G

    well my friends and i left the jays game in the 8th, as it seemed they won’t be winning the game. We are staying at the mariott attached to the skydome, so it was an easy walk. Clay laughed at our “Clay loves laptops” chants each time he entered the dugout and during BP. I also got another autographed Roy Halladay ball, but for the second time in 2 weeks after autographing my ball, he gets shelled for 5 runs (by the yanks, then the sox).

    Anyways, lets hope the yanks win

    Prediction?

    Yanks win 6-5

    • ShuutoHeat

      I hope you got your keebler products and a box of rice krispies signed by ol dusty pedroia

      • Dela G

        he refused to sign our photo of him photoshopped as an elf. I screamed at him during BP (when there were like 30 fans around, so he had to have heard me) and when he came close to sign balls, he saw my photo and went to the next kid

        i felt like i got the shaft :(

        • ShuutoHeat

          damn, next time I’m going to make him sign a Rice Krispies box…when he comes up.. I’ll ask him “are you snap popple or crack?”. Probably have a proper picture to bait him over and then pull out the Rice Krispies box.

    • JMK

      DId you get your laptop signed, Dela?

      • Dela G

        He ran up to my laptop, but when he saw it was chained to my chair, he went to the next kid :/

        • JMK

          IETC.

  • No Halladay

    Question, why not have players leave early to go back east. There are obviously starters and few others that won’t play, so why not go back early and rest, why stay and watch the game? Get to Boston rest, get used to the time change and join the rest of the team in a day.

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

      They have a day off tomorrow.

  • JSquared

    Zach McAllister, 10K’s through 4IP.

    • Dela G

      holy sheet

      incredible

    • AJ

      Call him UP! Jk.

    • Accent Shallow

      Hughes-esque.

  • BigBlueAL

    Am I the only one a bit worried about losing tonight plus with Lester going for the Sox tomorrow that the lead going into Fenway on Friday could be “only” 5 1/2 games??

    Granted Fri and Sat its Penny and Tazawa for the Sox….

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

      Pitching matchups for Yanks-Sox:

      Friday-Pettitte vs Penny

      Saturday-Burnett vs Tazawa

      Sunday-Sabathia vs Beckett

      We really should take 2 of 3. Also, Beckett got shelled his last time out, so maybe that shoulder is starting to go, like it did last year.

  • JGS

    this sucks.

    I just moved to Brooklyn–I don’t get YES, mlb.tv is blacked out, and I don’t have Io so I can’t stream the games. My only options are gameday or (shudder) jawn and suzyn. which one should I use?

    Pudge is 2-2 in Texas…. last year, didn’t he only have like 4 hits for us?

    • Accent Shallow

      Sure seemed that way. He was acquired as an upgrade over Molina, and then proceeded to hit like Molina during his (Pudge’s) Yankee tenure.

      • JSquared

        Yup.

    • Bugsy

      4 singles to be exact.

  • Dela G

    jeter is incredible… as usual

  • JMK

    I’m so conflicted. Top Chef is on…the Yanks are on. What to choose?

    • JSquared

      Watch Top Chef during Yankee game Commercials, or when Gaudin is pitching, might not be pretty…

      • JMK

        I’m thinking of betraying the Yanks because I’m out of whiskey (a Gaudin start could get dicey) and I love Top Chef. Does this make me a bad fan?

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

      Another Top Chef fan. Nice.

  • Dela G

    oh well, lets see what gaudin has in him

  • Accent Shallow

    Mike Hampton has a rotator cuff tear.

    This is not a repeat from any year since 2001.

    (79 ERA+ this year in 112 innings!)

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

      I seriously hope he shows up on that list of 103 names. It would explain a lot.

  • Jose

    Gaudin’s gamdeday picture has made me a true believer in the Yankee facial hair policy.

    • AJ

      lmao.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    I’m taking the over on Gaudin and Swisher for the game’s first HR.

    • Marcus

      I’m not sure I understand, somehow those two are going to team up to hit the game’s first HR? Over what?

  • AJ

    I hate the Angels but what they’re doing this year is pretty amazing.

  • Dela G

    man that at-bat took effing forever

  • JSquared

    Adam Kennedy… all over Gaudin’s stuff, hopefully he’s just mad about last night.

    • zs190

      This is the problem with Gaudin. His offspeed stuff doesn’t work against lefties well, so he nibbles with his fastball a lot.

    good-din

  • Salty Buggah

    Gaudin can only go about 85 pitches and he has gotten into very high counts in the short time we’ve seen him so he needs to be efficient tonight. Im not excited.

    All I want is 5 decent Gaudin.

  • JSquared

    That was nasty.

  • Dela G

    nice K there

    he seems to have a lot of breaking pitches

    my question: why doesn’t ichiro want?

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

      Exactly. Everyone says this about Ichiro. “Oh he could hit 30 homers if he wanted to!” Then why the hell doesn’t he do it? The homers would easily outweigh the singles and an increase in power would probably lead to an increase in walks which could get him more steals. He could be Willie Mays.

      I’m generally a strong Cashman supporter, but I also come down on the side that he’s not particularly great at assembling a first rate bench to begin a season (and I’ll gladly grant that it’s harder for him than most given the lack of regular playing time he’s able to promise and I’ll also say I thought he had done a better job going into this season, at least insofar as outfield depth, before X went down)–but I have to say, and have always felt–no one–no one–is better at fixing a team on the fly mid-season. Year in year out he plugs gaping holes over the course of the year. The results aren’t always perfect, i.e. ’08, but the process IMHO, is always fantastic.

      Easy to say right now, but I freaking love the Hairston and Gaudin moves–I like Hinske too, though i liked it more when I thought they’d let him play 3B (pre-Hairston obviously.

  • Dela G

    that was a clear ball

  • CanoFTW

    Umm yeah, the ump’s zone is all over the place right now..

  • Bugsy

    brett andersen is really helping my fantasy team but he should lose tonight because gaudin is going CG SO.

  • JSquared

    YEAH JOHNNY!!

  • Dela G

    What a catch by damon!

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

    That catch will do wonders for Damon’s UZR.

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

      Rajai Davis is unimpressed.

  • Danny

    LMAO kennedy

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Hey, nice play Johnny.

  • Bugsy

    love it love it love it damon gets like 3 fantastic plays this year and we just witnessed one of them.

    • JMK

      We are very lucky to have been privy to such a showing.

  • JSquared

    Great Pitch.

  • Dela G

    what a nice K

  • Dela G

    wow

    gaudin looks great so far

  • Bugsy

    soooo that sergio mitre…

  • Danny

    too early to say Gaudini is better then Mitre? (not that it takes much lol)

  • JMK

    Is this the only series we’ll play this year in which Damon is the better defensive left fielder? Scott Hairston has looked like a little leaguer out there so far.

    • Bugsy

      what about that youkilis character?

      • JMK

        He doesn’t play LF that often, does he?

        • Bugsy

          still, we had an advantage that series.

          • JMK

            True. You got me there.

  • Dela G

    damon makes the play, then gets the hit

    nice

  • Salty Buggah

    nice hit Johnny

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Gaudin is awesome!

    Go offense!

  • JSquared

    BOMB!!

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

    Texual healing.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Texual Harassment!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Teix!

  • Dela G

    A TEX MESSAGE!!!

    3-0 YANKEES!

  • Salty Buggah

    TEX!

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

    Don’t even think about turning around, Sweeney.

  • JMK

    He beat that like a Lifetime special.

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

      IETC.

  • Danny

    woo! that got out in a hurry

  • Danny

    woo! that got out in a hurry

  • V

    BOOM!

  • Drew

    Dang. Teix unloaded on that shit.

  • Ivan

    Tex message to the left field stands.

    Man that ball was smoked.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I love no-doubters.

  • Dela G

    that AB for alex was ugly

    • RalphieD

      he had a good swing at a fb and just got a nasty slider by brett…hes had much worse abs

      • Dela G

        true, but i guess it looked a little worse because of the way he went down

  • dkidd

    art howe?

  • JMK

    Davis can’t catch everything.

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

    Swisher and Jeter = on fire.

  • Dela G

    swishahouse with the nice hit

  • JSquared

    Teh Swish!!!

  • Dela G

    ugh at swinging at the sliders

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Cano don’t swing at those!

  • JMK

    Technically, it looked as if the ball hit the ground first. If that’s the case, wouldn’t that not be a HBP?

  • dkidd

    gaudin looks a little like jeremy bonderman

  • Pingback: Perhaps we should start calling him K-Mac | River Avenue Blues

  • Dela G

    throw damn strikes

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Chill, he walked Cust on purpose to get to Everidge. And it worked out.

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

    Chad Gaudin … another example of Brian Cashman throwing money at a problem and lacking creativity.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Amen

      • Johan Iz My Brohan

        Wow I totally didn’t read this. I saw it at “Cashman throwing money at a problem and making something or other.”

        Either way, damn Cash sucks at trades!

    • Dela G

      the yankees have a team of all-stars that they overpaid for

      they’ve never not paid a pitcher 10 million

      [/idiots

    • mattb

      Say what you will about Cash (I’m a fan, though by no means worship the man)–but I’ve always felt his greatest asset was his ability to fix a team on the fly–good examples of it virtually every season since 2000.

  • Dela G

    the guy is like dice-k. Escaping jams all the time

  • YankeeScribe

    Gaudin is doing well but he’s tossed 70 pitches through 4 innings

    • Esteban

      could be worse and he’s pretty much functioning as the 5th starter this week

    • Brazilian Yankee

      If he can go 6 we should be thrilled.

  • Danny

    Guadini!

  • JMK

    The spirit of Jorge stays alive. DP!

    • Salty Buggah

      heh

  • Dela G

    another hit for the captian

    he saw that mauer went hitless and wanted to gain some points…

  • JSquared

    JEET!

  • Danny

    did molina hit it hard, or was melky just slouching into second?

    /lazy dominican’d

  • dkidd

    lol at showing off your arm when molina is 50 feet from the bag

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Yanks have hit into a bunch of DPs this series. Hopefully this won’t carry over to the Boston series.

  • Bugsy

    my god, cappy. remember how towards the early part of the season Jeter was hitting like .270?

  • Dela G

    damon gets on!

    now for big texy

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Oh no. Do we really have to face Brad Penny? Isn’t he the best free agent signing from this past offseason? We’re screwed.

    • JSquared

      no, that would be John Smoltz, the guy we dont have to see… Thank God.

      • Bugsy

        i hope he gets his shit together in st. louis

  • JMK

    I’m so tired of seeing Rajai Davis.

  • JMK

    I’m so tired of seeing Rajai Davis.

    • Salty Buggah

      so much that you posted it twice ;)

      • JMK

        RAB has been screwy for me the past half hour. Maybe it’s Safari.

    • Danny

      +1

  • JSquared

    hmm…

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      I’m so tired of seeing JSquared being tired of seeing Rajai Davis.

  • Salty Buggah

    Fuckin Davis.

  • Dela G

    damn davis and his unlimited range

    we’ve had to deal with ichiro robbing hits, now davis

    ugh

  • Danny

    ughhh fuck you davis.

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

    The range of Rajai Davis is really starting to piss me off.

    • Bugsy

      let’s hunt him down

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Davis is an annoying little bastard.

  • Yankee Von Homerdinger

    Wow, Texas lost to Minny again and the wild card lead in the process.

  • Nels

    Ken Singleton has one of the best announcer’s voices I have ever heard. Flash has the worst I have ever heard, and he sure is bitter tonight.

    • JMK

      It’ll be nice to get back to town and finally start to play the Michael Kay drinking game.

    • Dela G

      singleton’s voice is very homey. Like he welcomes you into his booth

      • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

        It’s like he’s reading bedtime stories.

        • Dela G

          agreed

    • Danny

      i love kenny, but i can not stand flaherty so its kinda been bittersweet the past 6 games

  • Bugsy

    wtf happens to this guy when he faces lefties.

    • Yankee Von Homerdinger

      That was lazy.

  • Danny

    aww no love for hinske.

    • Tom Zig

      Yeah first he gets snubbed by RAB and now the YES network…poor guy

      We love you Hinske

  • Dela G

    nice out there

    lets hope we can get a DP with Mo’s help on davis

  • Dela G

    wtf was that???

    ugh

  • Danny

    oh, boo.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Freaking Cano.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Damn you Rajai Davis

  • Yankee Von Homerdinger

    • Danny

  • nyrfan

  • Yankee Von Homerdinger

    Those floodgates want to bust open real bad.

  • Dela G

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

  • BigBlueAL
