Open Thread: New radio voices

By

Update (7:31pm): T-Kep tweets that Ian Kennedy might be called up soon. That would be cool.

It’s not major news, but it’s news nonetheless. Suzyn Waldman won’t be around calling games during the Seattle series, instead she’ll be off celebrating Rosh Hashannah. Apparently it takes two people to replace her, as WFAN’s Sweeny Murti inherits pre- and post-game duties while Kim Jones takes over during games. Don’t worry, Suzy will be back in time for the Anaheim series.

Elsewhere, longtime Yankee farmhand and RAB’s 2008 Minor League Lifetime Achievement Award winner Matt Carson has been called up by the A’s and is in the lineup tonight. A big congrats goes out to Matt, I wish him nothing but the best.

Anyway, use this as your open thread until gametime later tonight. The Mets are playing the Nats in a battle of teams going nowhere, and if you’re into hockey the Rangers are taking on the Red Wings in preseason action. You can also come chill with me at MLBTR. Other than that, anything goes until the game starts, just be nice.

    does kim jones sound as good as she looks? that’s the question!

      I don’t understand the love on Jones. I mean, the body looks to be alright but that face, pass.

        Hey! Kim Jones is a handsome woman.

          There’s just no accounting for taste . . . is there?

        • putt

          She really is quite breathtaking.

        Agreed completely.

        I wonder if she reads this? (RAB is a YES blog like hers…)

  • Salty Buggah

    Mike to end the chat: “The Yanks will probably clinch a playoff spot at some point.”

    Way to go out on a limb, Mike. ;)

    On a serious note, do the Yanks celebrate when they clinch a playoff spot or when they clinch the decision or when they clinch home-field advantage?

    I say party all 3 times!

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

      I said “Have a good weekend, the Yanks will probably clinch a playoff spot at some point.” I thought it was implied that I meant they could clinch this weekend.

      • Salty Buggah

        Oh, makes sense now that I think about it.

          • Salty Buggah

            heh, I guess I could be accused of that but I only did that because I thought it didnt imply that soon means weekend, which makes sense now.

            • http://z.about.com/d/tvcomedies/1/0/F/-/-/-/judge310_72.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

              Um… Not that it matters or anything… But the word “soon” wasn’t in Mike’s quote. Not sure where you got that explanation from.

              • Salty Buggah

                Sorry my bad, I meant “some point.” Dont know why I said soon.

                  No worries, we all get caught in a lie at some point. (kidding)

    • VO

      Is it possible for us to clinch it today?

  • Esteban

    I think I hate Suzyn Waldman more than anybody I’ve never met (non-dictator). If I can’t watch the game because I’m in the car, it really is a hard decide whether or not to listen to the game. She, and John Sterling to a lesser extent, is an embarrassment to the Yankees. The quality of their broadcasters does not match the quality of the rest of the organization and it’s really unfortunate.

  • Salty Buggah

    Awesome news about IPK. I want to see him action, even for only a bit.

    • alex gonzalez

      hopefully he does a little better than allowing nearly a run per inning this time around. he could be a useful 5th starter for the yankees in the future. very cost effective as well.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

        Woah, you are being positive about a young starter that initially failed?

        • alex gonzalez

          im not optimistic about it. just hopeful. there is a difference.

          • Salty Buggah

            No one said that. JW said you were positive and you are if you’re hopeful.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

            Hopeful is a synonym of optimistic. But meh…

            • alex gonzalez

              let me rephrase. i think he has a low probability of being good. but i wish that he could be.

              • Salty Buggah

                Little probably is still being positive.

                • Salty Buggah

                  *probability

              • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

                Oh well. Baby steps I guess.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

    With Edwin Jackson falling off a cliff and the Twins on the verge of a playoff spot who would you guys rather see in the playoffs?

    They’re actually pretty identical stat wise.

    • Salty Buggah

      The Twins. Weaker rotation and no Morneau.

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

        Yeah, Mauer shouldn’t get a damn thing to hit the rest of the year. Jason Kubel is having a very good year, but I’ll take my chances with him.

        • Salty Buggah

          Yea and he cant hit lefties at all.

          .995 OPS against RHP
          .674 OPS against LHP

          • Zack

            Yeah but we only have 1 lefty starter, so it doesnt really matter.

            • alex gonzalez

              nick swisher starts game 2.

            • Ant

              Andy Pettite says hello

              • Zack

                ah yeah him too

            • Salty Buggah

              True but he’ll stink against our pen and also like Mike said, I’ll take my chances with him.

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

          .674 OPS vs. LHP.

    • alex gonzalez

      the m&m boys always seem to kill the yankees. but the pitching of the twins doesn’t really scare me. verlander is always a scary threat.

      • Chris

        I bet that Morneau doesn’t get a hit against the Yankees in the playoffs.

        • alex gonzalez

          why do you say that?

          • Salty Buggah

            Morneau is out for the season

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

            Because he’s out for the season with a stress fracture in his back.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

            He’s done for the season.

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

          Haha, IETC.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

        The M&M boys will kill anyone really. But Morneau is done for the season and it’s true they have a weaker rotation.

        Verlander’s just one guy and of course he’s great but if Jackson doesn’t get it together they are screwed.

        Both offenses are kinda sucky but at first glance I give it to the Twins by a really small margin.

        • alex gonzalez

          arent a lot of the twins averages a little inflated because of the metrodome. i feel like that makes there offense look better than it is.

          • JSquared

            Yeah, but the tigers are not impressive outside of Miguel Cabrera.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

            .788 OPS Home
            .741 OPS Away

            Just a 40 point difference. Almost near Boston away. That kind of tells something about their offense away. The thrive at home.

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

              It’s because they have a lot of shitty little speed guys that slap the ball on the turf and have it skip through the hole.

              • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

                I was talking about Boston about thriving at home.

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

                  So are those stats for Boston, or the Twins?

                  Boston thrives at home because the park is like one of those novelty stadiums in Backyard Baseball with all those weird corners and little nooks and crannys.

                • alex gonzalez

                  i think he was saying those are for the twins

                • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

                  The Twins. Then I said they are almost on par with Boston on the road and it tells how bad Boston can be on the road.

                  But my bad for making that unclear.

        m&m boys???

    • http://z.about.com/d/tvcomedies/1/0/F/-/-/-/judge310_72.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      Co-sign. The Yanks just need to take care of their own business. If they do that, the opponent won’t matter./

  • alex gonzalez

    so i heard the yankees clinch a playoff spot after 3 game outcomes. why does this website say 10?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 JobaWockeeZ

      It’s for the division.

      • alex gonzalez

        so we could be a lock for the playoffs tomorrow.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

          Exactly.

          • alex gonzalez

            do you remember the yankees ever having some player manage on the last day of the season because the playoffs are a lock at that point? i feel like one year they had someone do it and mariano rivera was the pitching coach, and i think jeter was the bench coach. maybe it was posada. was that only a joe torre thing.

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

              Torre did that almost every year. Posada managed one year, Ruben Sierra another. Moose was the pitching coach once, then it was Mo. All sorts of stuff.

              • alex gonzalez

                i hope they bring that back. i always thought it was a fun time and good chemistry builder right before the playoffs.

        • VO

          Wait, I’m a little confused maybe you can clear it up. If the Yankees win today, is it possible that tonight we have a locked playoff spot(mathematically).

          • alex gonzalez

            i dont know, i just know someone said that there are some outcomes that by tommorrow night we would be a lock. i dont think it can happen by the end of tonight.

            • http://z.about.com/d/tvcomedies/1/0/F/-/-/-/judge310_72.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

              I don’t think so, I thought the magic number to clinch a playoff spot was 3 going into today.

              • alex gonzalez

                “by tommorrow night we would be a lock. i dont think it can happen by the end of tonight”

                • http://z.about.com/d/tvcomedies/1/0/F/-/-/-/judge310_72.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

                  Clearly my comment was meant as a response to VO.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

            No, tomorrow. The magic number is 3 games right? So if the Yanks win and Texas loses then it goes down to 1 game then tomorrow there is a chance to clinch the playoffs.

            • VO

              OK, makes sense. Thanks.

  • Dela G

    Let’s hope the red sox can lose 10 in a row….

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

      Their pitching is rounding into form nicely right at exactly the right time. Beckett’s coming off two good starts in a row, Lester is always tough and even Dice K looked good the other night. I’m beginning to get worried about them again.

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

    So, what do you guys think the next ‘saber-stat’ to hit the mainstream will be? This year it was OPS, I think next year it’s gonna be FIP. I would say UZR, but I think the MSM has an aversion to fielding metrics–even though Buck Showalter said earlier on BBTN this season he wishes there was a “runs saved” stat for nice plays but I’m sure he’d be really against any fielding stat that exactly states how many runs a player saves with his glove…Anyway, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say FIP.

    • alex gonzalez

      mainstream? i avoid all of those like the plague. i still think it is a very selective group of people that use them. i honestly dont even know exactly what all those even are. it wont be mainstream because some of them you need a PhD in math to be able understand what is going on.

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

        alex gonzalez rolls with Murray Chass.

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

      I’ve heard Gammons refer to “defense independent pitching statistics,” not necessarily FIP, but the same idea. I think that’s next, because it makes a lot of sense. Judge a pitcher based on what he’s done, not on what his teammates affected.

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

        Yeah, for all the crap we give him (much of it deserved) he does try to stay up on the new metrics here and there, which is more than you can say for most writers, especially the ones his age.

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

        Word. We’re still a long way off from tRA (the real tRA) but FIP seems logical.

        Also, for the record, you don’t need a math degree to understand advanced stats. I got a D in Statistics 101 @ UConn and I understand advanced stats.

      • Jack

        How awesome would it be if Gammons started using tRA? I would love to see people’s responses to that.

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

          That would be incredibly cool. As The Artist said above, Gammons does at least try to stay up on the new stuff, so he could be the one to bring something like tRA (or hopefully UZR) into the fold.

    Anybody saw the article in the Daily News comparing this yankee team to the 98 team?

    What caught my attention in that article was that Chad Curtis actually was the yankee starting LFer in 98.

    • http://z.about.com/d/tvcomedies/1/0/F/-/-/-/judge310_72.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      Yeah I remember LF being an interesting spot for the Yanks for a while back then. It stayed that way until Matsui came to town, really.

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

      How about Hideki Irabu as the #5 starter?

      Actually, that rotation was very solid, but didn’t have one lock down Ace in it. Cone was very good, Wells had a career year, El Duque was solid and Andy was very good. But no Randy Johnson/Pedro/Clemens in his prime type pitcher.

          Well, to be fair, with Adam Jones, he’d probably have at least one more strikeout.

    I keep thinking that I still have to do DotF tonight. I don’t know what to do with all this free time.

        Great idea but not as satisfying as the real thing.

    IPK?

    You mean the guy with the 88 MPH fastball?

    Please, what a joke.

    I’m surprised alex gonzalez isn’t a bigger fan, after all IPK’s career minor league record is 19-6. The guy does win games.

      19? That’s all? Ha! Mike do you know what era this is?

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

    Any other Moneen fans out there? I’m listening to the new stuff on MySpace and I’m liking it.

    • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

      I just Youtube’d some of their stuff. I kind of like it. What bands do you like Matt?

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

        To be honest, I’ve been very out of the loop finding new music for the last like…2 years, haha. It’s kinda shitty. But I’ve followed Moneen for ~5 years (I saw them open for My Chemical Romance, Midtown, and Reggie and the Full Effect back in ’03) and I heard they had a new album coming out so I thought I’d give it a listen. Anyway, jams I’ve been kicking lately:

        Midtown’s discography (fuck you and Cobra Starship, Gabe)
        Based on a True Story by The Starting Line (one of my favorite albums from ’05)
        Makers by Rocky Votolato
        If You Speak Any Faster by June
        Reasons that Keep the Ground Near by Lux Courageous (super underrated brand that broke up a while ago)

        • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

          Some good bands. If you click my link it will take you to the band Bayside. By far my favorite band. You should check some of their stuff out. I also love the band Boys Night Out. Their album Trainwreck is amazing.

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

            Yeah, I know Bayside. Always fun. I never really got into BNO, though.

            • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

              I find a lot people don’t know about Bayside. I’m pretty addicted to them. Saw them four times in a span of 8 days and two states last year. Boys Night Out is simply amazing. That’s all I can really say about them. Saosin, Brand New, Silverstein, Chiodos, and etc. also are great.

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

                How is the new BN album? I’ve heard from one person that it’s good and from another that it was crap.

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

          I saw The Starting Line at the Warped Tour a few years ago, didn’t know punk could be that gay.

            Randall’s Island ’05? I was there. I was spitting dirt for like three days.

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

              There’s no way it was ’05 when I went. I think it was ’02, maybe ’03. But yeah, Randall’s Island. NOFX and The Bosstones “headlined,” or were at least the final acts.

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

                Ah, okay. I just remember watching TSL during ’05.

    Hopefully Allan brings his ‘A’ game tonight, he’ll need it against Felix.

                  Nick Swisher jokes > than Chuck Norris jokes

                  Chuck Norris wears Nick Swisher pajamas.

                • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

                  The only reason there are Chuck Norris jokes is that they amuse Nick Swisher.

                  Come to think, that’s the only reason ANYTHING exists.

                  Nick Swisher accounts for roughly 90% of all the penis on the Earth.

    Does your contract with YES require you to pretend we might conceivably miss Waldman, rather than celebrate her absence?
