Spring Training Game Thread: Javy & Ace

By

The Yankees are doing the split squad thing today, with half the team staying home to play the Orioles while the other half is going on the road to play Johnny Damon and the Tigers. After getting rained out the past two days, I’m sure the guys will be glad to get back on the field and get some actual work in. Taking BP and throwing in the bullpen just isn’t the same.

Here’s the starting lineup for the game against the O’s…

Gardner, CF
Johnson, DH
Posada, C
Cano, 2B
Granderson, LF
Winn, RF
Miranda, 1B
Laird, 3B
Pena, SS

Scheduled Pitchers: Javy Vazquez, Al Aceves, David Robertson, and Royce Ring. Kei Igawa, Wilkins Arias, and Jeremy Bleich are also available if needed.

Also scheduled to play: Reegie Corona, Colin Curtis, Kyle Higashioka, Jesus Montero, P.J. Pilittere, and Jon Weber. Mitch Abeita, Austin Krum, and Justin Snyder are also available if needed.

Chad Gaudin and Sergio Mitre will be on the mound in Lakeland. First pitch for both games is scheduled for 1:05pm, and you can watch the O’s game on My9. Enjoy.

    Finally, let there be baseball.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Cano in the 4th spot. FEARED!!!

  • Manimal

    Why is Gardner playing center and Granderson in left?

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      I hate, even in spring training games, seeing Gardner hit anywhere but 9th.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Experimenting.

    • Zack

      because it’s spring training

  • Poopy Pants

    I’m so happy to be watching baseball.

  • Tank the Frank

    Damn that makes you appreciate Teixeira.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

    How do they decide which players go where in the split squad games?

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      Seniority, oftentimes.

      • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

        Just wondering because it seems the starting infield (minus Cano) is at the Tigers game and the starting outfield and Posada is at the other one.

        • whozat

          I believe they’re obligated to send at least 4 starting-caliber players to any game, and the longer-tenured guys get to have more say in their schedule. I’m sure they all have to travel at some point, so the big guys probably get to pull rank and take shorter road trips and stuff. Like, go play the Tigers today to avoid the schlep to Ft Meyers next week or something.

          • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

            OK, cool. Thanks.

        • radnom

          They might try to group certain positions together.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Vazquez is done. What a waste of money!!! Two effing hits!!!

  • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

    Noooot even close to a strike.

    (I know, ST.)

    • YankeesJunkie

      True. Quick Question though, how many think the game would be better if there was a bigger strike zone.

      • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

        I don’t want it bigger, just consistent from ump to ump (or computer to computer).

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        I say go back to the way the game was invented, the pitcher had to throw the ball where the batter like it.

  • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

    Now we gotta watch this friggin guy clog the bases…

      Matsui would have scored on that single!!!

  • YankeesJunkie

    Nice double for NJ! However, his legs fell off at 2B out for the season.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Dennard Span signs a 5 year/16.5 million dollar contract with the Twins.

  • Poopy Pants

    Nick can hit.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    I saw “Sugar” last night. Not bad. I loved the line, “just don’t give it to the first white girl you meet”. haha

  • YankeesJunkie

    Hitfest commences.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    So, Guthrie is back to midseason form.

  • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

    Anyone want to run out in the rain and get me a coffee?

  • ShuutoHeat

    LOL, I know its ST. But man, Guthrie is getting set on fire.

  • Tank the Frank

    I just have this feeling that Cano is going to have a MONSTER year. .335/.360/.545. 30 HR.

    • ShuutoHeat

      I think they’re teaching Cano to mentally block all the runners on base. Or he’s actually swinging blind, determining the position of the ball with his other senses.

      • Tank the Frank

        I heard he was just too lazy to even pick his head up and look to see if runners were on base.

        • http://janeheller.mlblogs.com/yank_c.jpg T-Dubs

          I also heard that he’s going to steal some of Tori Hunter’s RBIs.

    • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

      and here’s to you, Mr. Robinson
      Jesus loves you more than you Cano, whoah whoah whoah

    • http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/multimedia/photo_gallery/0902/mlb.alex.rodriguez.through.the.years/images/1993.alex-rodriguez.jpg Drew

      I expect a similar year to last. The one main difference is he’ll hit with Risp and he’ll get MVP votes.

      • ShuutoHeat

        And he won’t be lazy! I keed I keed!

        • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

          oh, you and I both know that’s impossible.

      • Tank the Frank

        For sure. He’ll never have the OPS because of his OBP, but if he can put up bigger RBI numbers he’ll get some votes.

    • Sore Ears

      Tino hurts my ears.

  • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

    Cano with the RISP hit!

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      Yes, after I posted that I realized I was about 5 minutes behind. Forgot I paused the game with my DVR while I put my contacts in!

  • http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/multimedia/photo_gallery/0902/mlb.alex.rodriguez.through.the.years/images/1993.alex-rodriguez.jpg Drew

    I thought Pena says Suzuki blocks pitches the best.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Cervelli with a hit, in Lakeland. Good sign.

    • Tank the Frank

      I heard he’s wearing the battle helmet.

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        Isn’t it mandatory in the minors this year?

        • ShuutoHeat

          Triple-A according to press.

      • ShuutoHeat

        No doubt Cerve looks better wearing it than David Wright does.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Pretty solid inning for the offense.

  • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

    ZOMG we are in the presence of Wieters!!!!

    • ShuutoHeat

      Never knew he was a “closer” as well.

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      Fun Fact: Jesus is 3 1/2 years younger than Matt Weiters.

      • YankeesJunkie

        Fun story about Jesus here too.

        2On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ 4And Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.’ 5His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ 6Now standing there were six stone water-jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to them, ‘Fill the jars with water.’ And they filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, ‘Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.’ So they took it. 9When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom 10and said to him, ‘Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.’ 11Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

        Not really about baseball, but what a fucking G.

        • Andy in Sunny Daytona

          I saw David Blaine do the same trick. He put red dye in the containers. Everyone was too drunk to know the difference.

          dodges lightning

    • Tank the Frank

      I don’t consider Matt Wieters’ numbers legitimate because he never had to bat against Casey Kelly.

  • YankeesJunkie

    That was a bomb.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    I think Gaudin is having a rough outing. MLB hasn’t updated in a while.

    hmm.. Javy’s starting to let that fastball creep over the plate. Maybe he’s getting a bit fatigued.

  • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

    a. I just went to mlb.com to get updates on the game against the Tigers and wow Clay Buchholz looks awful with that beard.
    b. JAVY GAVE UP A HR PANIC!!!!
    c. This is also on the MLB home page:
    If [Vernon] Wells can have a solid season … the Jays might have a chance [to make the playoffs]. — Kid Canada
    Not this year in the AL East, babe. (Okay, because I spoke poorly about percentages in an open thread a little while ago, maybe they have a chance. Like, a 1% chance.)

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      I think I have a better chance to start the season as the Yankees shortstop than Vernon Wells does to have a good enough season that the Jays make the playoffs.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Gardy put a really nice cut on the ball.

  • http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/multimedia/photo_gallery/0902/mlb.alex.rodriguez.through.the.years/images/1993.alex-rodriguez.jpg Drew

    NJ is very impressive so far in ST.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Yeah no kidding NJ is taking good swings which is a good thing.

  • BklynJT

    wow first to third on that hit… would of at least bee a throw in the regular season, probably an out against markasis’ arm.

  • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

    Now that’s the Cano-with-RISP I remember from last year…hard-hit ball, but bad luck on the placement, and a great defensive play to turn two.

    • dalelama

      I just remember him hitting into ground out double plays. I swear he must have lead the league in ground dps.

      • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

        Actually Evan Longoria led the league. And he sucks.

        • dalelama

          Cano had to be close to the top…for a left handed hitter with speed it struck me as unusual…unlike Longoria who is a righty and not that fast.

          • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

            He was in the top 10, but I don’t think it’s all that surprising. He’s really not that fast, is a line drive hitter, and in this lineup always has guys on base. I’m sure he’ll be up there again this year, along with Jeter/Johnson/A-Rod, etc.

        • dalelama

          actually Cano hit into 22, I think Lyman Bostock is the only fast lefty to hit into more (26) in 1978

          • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

            Cano’s not really all that fast

  • ShuutoHeat

    I hate that FIOs guy, he thinks he’s the $hit.

  • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

    Michael Kay making sense, I am confused.

    (though can we stop saying “he made the All-Star team”? Torre put him on that team. Doesn’t change the fact that he had a very good first half, though.)

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      Bexy, I just mis-read that as “…I am aroused” and I went, “Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!”

    Frankie C is batting .800!!!1111!! ZOMG!

    • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

      Which reminds me of something I saw on Olney’s daily piece/links>

      .450 — That’s the batting average of Austin Jackson, who came into camp amid questions from some evaluators about whether he’ll hit enough to be a good major leaguer. It’s a nice first step for him.

      I don’t know about you, but now I’m thoroughly convinced that Jackson will hit enough, and will chase .400 for the first time since Williams in ’41.

      • http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=436793&w=2005/open/topplays/archive07/071405_nyabos_arod_hr_350.wmv&pid=mlb_tp&gid=2005/07/14/nyamlb-bosmlb-1&cid=mlb&am bexarama

        the amount of people I’ve seen complaining about how good Austin Jackson is doing in ST and how awful Curtis Granderson is at everything and therefore Cashman is an idiot is astounding (and yet somehow not surprising) and irritating.

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        Well I am totally convinced that Frankie can hit AT LEAST .600 this year, if not .750. The early results prove this.

        • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

          Why so pessimistic? You really think he’s going to slump into the .700′s?

    Johnny Damon hit a HR. Why is Cashman such an idiot?!?!

    Nice catch, Gardy. Please use two hands?

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      I would love if Gardner would get all cocky like Rickey Henderson, and snatch the ball when he caught it. I would absolutely become his #1 fan.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Am I misreading the boxscore? Nick Johnson stole a base? Off Matt Weiters? WTF?

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      It was a weird play where the ump delayed his strike call and Wieters never threw because he thought it was ball four.

      • dalelama

        I thought that was supposedly “defensive indifference”…LOL

  • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

    “[500 home runs is]…a seminal number…” [for HOF candidacy].

    Once again, Kay shows off that Fordham education by mis-using a big word…

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      But if you could read his speaking bubble (like comics) it would read “…a Seminole moment”

      • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

        Heh. Which would still be wrong…

        It always drives me nuts when he says, before the top of the ninth, that the visiting team has their “last licks” coming up; ever since I was a little kid (which was longer ago than I wish to admit), “we got last licks” meant, “we get to hit in the bottom of the ninth, and therefore have the chance for a walk-off win”. By definition, the visiting team never has “last licks”.

        In fact, it annoys me so much that I once sent in an e-mail to an “Ask Michael Kay” segment, asking why he perpetually gets that wrong. I was so surprised when he didn’t read my question on the air… :-)

        What music do you think those 4 would listen to for the drive? I better Jeter would something old school on, like Bell-Biv-Devoe or Blackstreet.

          My knowledge of rap and modern R & B would fit into a thimble…I’m more of a Delta Blues/’60s R & B/old-time Country/Rolling Stones-type Rock & Roll kinda dude…

          Maybe Granderson plays Robert Johnson’s “Sweet Home Chicago”?

            “chilly NYC” isn’t so much accurate as “absolutely miserable NYC”

            love,
            a non-Andy

              You know, I had this convo with Andy in Sunny D. Come June, I’m going to have to change my handle, allow it to become incorrect, or turn into a weatherman and change it daily!

              And, yes. In a couple minutes, I have to go out and run some errands–pick up a fishing licence, some slippers (maybe Yankees ones!), etc., and I’m dreading going out in these miserable conditions.

                “Andy in Sunny NYC” is OK with me.

        • scooter

          Just call me Andrew to avoid confusion

          A guy that’s impressed me in camp is Brandon Laird – great arm at 3rd, not awful D, and he’s had some good swings. Not bad for a guy just out of high-A.

          Miranda hit rockets today – with nothing to show for it – but he’s not the best glove at first.

          GGG hit the ball well today – gotta think he’s ahead of Winn.

          • Andy in Sunny Daytona

            scooter, you’re slightly ahead of Winn right now too.

  • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

    Did anyone else hear that?

    Before that last play, I swear I heard a voice just audible in the background saying: “…Joba…they go down to the bar together, you know…”

    Robertson in for Teh Ninth!!!!11111!

      but the bases aren’t loaded!

      • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

        So he’ll suck? Or load them, then get out of it?

  • VO

    Is it just me or does Montero look fine behind the plate?

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      I’ve been thinking the same thing, but very few have tried to run on him so far.

    D-Rob is just sick.

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      I’m surprised Jesus was able to catch the ball.

    Dave Robertson: still awesome.

    That’s something that gets lost in the shuffle of the Joba-Hughes bullshit: the Yankees don’t necessarily need one of them in the pen, because they have Robertson.

  • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

    OK guys, it’s been fun. I have to go swimming go run some errands in these monsoon-like conditions.

    Later!

    PS: There is now one fewer Andy on the board.

      there’s totally a fight going on in the stands, heh.

    • Andy (different one) in chilly NYC

      And me. You said so!

      {OK, I’m really going now.]

    Good day for the Yankees because people will have to stfu about Mitre and Aceves getting “screwed” for the 5th spot.
