Open Thread Spillover

We’ve still got a whole half to go with the Giants and Cowboys, so let’s fire up another thread.

    No, Reggie, winning a title in 2009 with Hughes in the bullpen will NOT convince Brian Cashman to keep the status quo and leave Hughes in the pen for 2010, thus necessitating adding another starter.

    Cashman’s been 100% rock solid on the fact that both Phil and Joba are starting pitchers. Phil will not be in the bullpen in 2010. The two of them will join CC and AJ in the 2010 rotation. The only question that remains is will the 5th member be Pettitte or not.

    • alex gonzalez

      did cashman tell you he wouldnt change his mind. or that hank or hal wouldnt change it for him.

        Oh boy. I’m getting my popcorn ready.

          Should I cue up the “Scott Feldman” line? Or the “different era” line? Or the “arbitrary” line?

          It’s getting to the point where we’re going to be paralyzed by having TOO MUCH primo material…

          • Tom Zig

            Go with arbitrary. We used different era a lot in the last thread

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

        Hank and Hal are smart enough to trust Cashman as their baseball man and go with his decision.

        (Well, Hal is, at least, but he overrules Hank, so that part of it is moot.)

                • alex gonzalez

                  overrated? you have to be joking. it is one of my favorite movies all time. it is unreal how good it is. once it was made the godfather was overshadowed immediately. i refuse to see that relic of old gangster movies.

                  Probably.

                  Scarface is either the best bad movie ever or the worst good movie ever. One way or the other.

                  This much is true, though: If I was marooned on a desert island with a VCR and two tapes, one being The Godfather and the other being Scarface, I’d use the tape from the Scarface cassette as a pulley in a complicated, Swiss-Family-Robinson style bicycle power generation machine to watch The Godfather all day long on my VCR.

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

                  I didn’t see The Godfather until these guys pushed me to see it last fall. It’s absolutely amazing and one of the three best movies I’ve ever seen.

                  Scarface is entertaining, but it doesn’t even hold a candle to The Godfather. Do yourself a favor and see it, then see number two.

                  If only there was a way to quantify how good Scarface is, eh? Sadly, just like Dwight Gooden’s 1985 campaign, there is no way at all to measure how good things are. None.

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

                  Also, if you watched The Godfather and came away thinking it was just a gangster movie, you have missed the point by about as far as one can miss a point.

                  Matt:

                  Yeah I thought about star wars as soon as I posted that.

                  so:

                  the only first time in history that a great film has a sequel that is just as good if not better.

                • alex gonzalez

                  fine i guess i will see it. if only to realize what a great movie that scarface is.

          cashman also said our starting first baseman was nick swisher.

          • Tom Zig

            He also said our CF was Bubba Crosby, then BOOM Johnny Damon happened

            • alex gonzalez

              right so who is to say he doesn’t say hughes is our fifth starter. then boom, we have brandon webb and hughes is a setup man.

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

                Because those are comments made during the offseason designed to act as a smokescreen for free agent negotiations.

                The “Joba and Phil are starters” line is a constant and persistent refrain across the entire organization that doesn’t have any significant reason for it to be doubted.

                • alex gonzalez

                  it could be a smokescreen for an offseason move with free agent negotiations. how can you say it may not be.

                • Tom Zig

                  Except that there isn’t anyone out there who is worth a big contract. Webb isn’t guaranteed to be a FA anyways, and if he is a FA, be concerned

                • Steve H

                  Smokescreens are temporary not long term. The Yankees have never wavered from Joba/Phil being starters. If it was a smokescreen, the smoke would have cleared by now, and that sure hasn’t happened.

                • alex gonzalez

                  maybe it was a real policy at one point. then they saw what kind of starter joba is and how hughes is in the bullpen. maybe they then changed their minds.

                • alex gonzalez

                  what evidence do you have other than cashman saying so. no one knows what this organization will do. not even some of the people in it. i just hope they make the right decisions before it is too late. who knows though. the game is changing from cashman’s style.

                • alex gonzalez

                  when i say cashmans style i mean his team construction. does he ever consider how chemistry of a team is going to work. i just hope that he doesnt have those basement statheads trying to figure everything out for him now rather than someone who can watch a game and get a sense for what is going on in the game. box score watchers never know as much as someone at the game. if i had 200 million dollars i could make a team that would win 100 games. i would look a lot towards chemistry and guys who know how to win in the playoffs. a lot people can get to the playoffs. it takes a special kind to win in the playoffs. gene michael knew what he was doing when he made those teams years ago. i like that and the torre years. the fabrics of the game were altered in those years by that one man.

                • Steve H

                  Can you please tell us what A-Rod did to you that you hate him with such passion? Did he snub you for an autograph? Intercept a package of Pettitte’s HGH in the mail? Kill a dog? Cost your favorite pitcher a win?

                  Your obsession with the 2002 Giants is fascinating. Especially since you keep using them to illustrate your points and they’re always wrong; the 2002 Giants always illustrate how your points are incorrect. As I’m sure they will here, as well.

                  I think he is trying to argue that because the 2002 Giants had Cody Ransom on their team, they made it to the World Series. And since we also had Cody Ransom on the team, we too will win lots of games and go far in the playoffs.

                  And my team that focused on strikeout pitchers, a dominant closer, and high-OBP players with good defense up the middle + power and OBP in the corners would annihilate your team.

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

              Also, getting another starter most likely (and should) means the end of Andy Pettitte’s tenure as a Yankee, not Phil Hughes’ departure from starter to reliever.

              • Tom Zig

                Only situations where Joba and/or Phil go to the pen

                For 1 of the 2 to go to the pen:

                The Yankees mysteriously and miraculously obtain Zach Grienke AND Roy Halladay

                For both:

                The Yankees mysteriously and miraculously obtain Zach Grienke AND Roy Halladay AND Felix Hernandez

                • Chris

                  Actually, I think just acquiring Greinke would be enough for one of them to go to the pen.

                  The trade for Greinke would probably include at least one of Joba or Hughes. After KC got them, they would immediately be put in the pen to set up for Soria.

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

                  No, KC would keep Joba or Hughes in the rotation. They may be dumb, but they’re not THAT dumb.

                  Not even Dayton Moore is dumb enough to trade Zack Greinke for an elite young pitching prospect and then put that prospect in the bullpen. The good, kind, patient people of Kansas City would assassinate him.

                • Tom Zig

      I doubt the Yanks are going to pick up a reliever on the market. Lots of down years from good relievers all around and Valverde is going to get paid more money elsewhere.

      I’m not advocating the status quo should the Yanks win the WS. But i wouldnt be surprised if Cash simply said: “We’re sticking with what works.” Especially should someone like B-Webb hit the market , i think sticking with the quo makes it easier.

      • Zack

        if Cash wanted to keep things ‘easy’ he wouldnt just kept Joba in the pen. but obviously thats not his plan, he wants to try to get the full potential out of both arms.

        DRob and Ace stepped up this year, someone will next year.

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

        If B-Webb hits the market, and he’s got good medicals, and Cash is like “Holy fuckballs, I HAVE to have this guy, he’d get him.

        And he’d then NOT resign Andy Pettitte, because he already has his 5-man rotation: CC, AJ, Webb, Joba, and Hughes.

        Hughes will NOT stay in the bullpen for 2010. Not. Gonna. Happen.

    That was the worst pass ever.

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

      Followed by a crappy kick.

        That Red Zone possession = Cano against Olson today.

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

      No, I’m pretty sure that probably happened in the Raiders-Chiefs game.

    • Reggie C.

      That pass had nothing on it .. maybe it slipped from his hand. Definitely a weird moment in a fine game from Eli till that point.

    Romo EPIC FAIL

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

    Steve Smith just Wayne Brady’d Orlando Scandrick.

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

    Steve Smith, ftw.

    Now play defense.

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

    Steve Smith just broke some ankles.

    Giants Defense working hard on this drive. Got a sick feeling the ‘Boys running game is gonna come up with another TD.

          Yeah, who cares about that, say something worthwhile that we really want.

          Tell me that I’m about to have a threeway with Esther Baxter and Melyssa Ford.

    • Reggie C.

      Yep.

      Still alot of time left on the clock though. Just need a FG guys…

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

      For that, Reggie, I hope Luke Scott spontaneously combusts.

      • Reggie C.

        my pants just got tighter. … uhh… no homo?

  • Reggie C.

    I starting to hate Collinsworth. Is this guy an ex-Cowboy or something? There’s an annoying pitch to his voice whenever he names a Cowboy player.

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

      Meh, he’s just smarmy. He’s like that all the time, it’s part of his charm (apparently).

  • Salty Buggah

    Eli is on fiyah! Just need a FG now.

  • Reggie C.

    C’mon G-Men. YA’LL SOOOOOOOO CLOSE !! FINISH IT!

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

      I was all “I wonder if he’ll be able to hold the snap and get it set up properly for the kick”, but then I remembered that Tony Romo wasn’t the Giants holder, and I realized that it would be fine.

      http://www.theonion.com/conten.....ets_eating

  • http://www.repairmycomputer.com Marc

    Yeah!!

  • Zack

    maybe they should send Tony Romo to the AFL, he obviously thinks he has a roster spot locked up no matter what.

    • Salty Buggah

      AFL folded, no? UFL works though

      • Zack

        crap you’re right. when does that UFL start anyways?

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

          I think it starts on the first Sunday of Who Cares.

      Good news for the Giants: You just beat your archrival in a big divisional game.

      Bad news for the Giants: Tom Coughlin isn’t taking you out for steaks and blowjobs.

      • Jack

        Oddly enough, Coughlin’s ringtone is actually the sound of him punching a homosexual. Funny how that works.

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

    Lawrence Tynes just beat the Cowboys twice.

  • bonestock94

    Oh man, what a game. That shaved a few months off my life for sure.

  • ashish

    in all serious though, eli made that drive happen. btw, if there was a ufc type fight between mark sanchez and eli manning, who do you think would win? My money is on sanchez.

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

      btw, if there was a ufc type fight between mark sanchez and eli manning, who do you think would win?

      Nick Swisher.

      • Jack

        Nick Swisher is currently ranked 12th in the AP college football poll.

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

          Big Pharma and the HMO lobby give the Yankees money to pay Nick Swisher’s salary to keep him from fixing healthcare.

          • Jack

            Nick Swisher performs a tumbleroll when he enters any room. Not for protection, but because it looks cool as hell.

  • Reggie C.

    Now ….

    Is Justin Tuck going to be alright? Flozell Cheapshot Adams pulled a bitch move with that trip.

  • bonestock94

    They should have saved all of that money and bought a new qb instead.

  • Charlie

    i’m sure this has been mentioned, but Joba’s comments after the game were just crazy. there’s something wrong with the way he approaches the game. i’ve defended him and i still think he can be good, but someone pitching this badly and not admitting it at all needs to get some tips from a guy like burnett or something. i really can’t stand joba anymore

    • Drew the Pretty Pretty Princess

      I love how people kill Joba when he says stuff, yet, when AP says “I only made one mistake” (while giving up 4+ runs), or tries to blame homers on the stadium, no one even thinks twice about it.

      Joba is not a wordsmith. Do people really need for him to say “not only am I embarrassed for not helping my team, but I suck. I’m the worst pitcher ever. They should demote me. I eat babies. I can’t take one positive out of this game or out of this season.”

      Holy Mo.

    • Tom Zig

      So you’d rather him go out there and be like “Oh man, I fucking sucked today.” And that would solve what, exactly?

      • whozat

        It would make me FEEL better! I could be righteously angry!
