Game 117: Not According to Plan
Update: Cano day-to-day with stiff neck
  • Richard Leo

    nice to see Murphy show some power

  • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

    Camarena and Bird playing pretty well in a small sample size. Nice to see nonetheless.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

      Hm…Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but Camarena and Bird were both born on November 9th 1992. Odd.

  • Bo Knows

    Tyler Austin wants to get to NY asap, he honestly should be sent to Trenton to start next

    • Bo Knows

      *next year

      • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

        It might happen, but I don’t think it will. He’ll definitely see time in Double-A next season. Just don’t know when exactly.

        • Bo Knows

          He’ll finish the year with about 36 games in Tampa that is a pretty healthy sample size that he has a decent shot, there really isn’t anyone blocking him either

          • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

            Yeah, but that doesn’t guarantee him a spot in Trenton next season. I think he’ll get there, just not necessarily right away.

            I also wouldn’t be surprised if he started in Trenton. I just don’t expect him to.

  • Bob Buttons the Cat

    Am I wrong or is this the third or fourth time I saw “faced a rehabbing Matsuzaka” in the minor league recaps this year? Could have swear I saw notes of him rehabbing back in late June.

  • Robert

    Yankees only team in Major Leagues with out one rookie at bat this season. So sad. My Question is who will get that 1st rookie at bat when the rosters expand on Sept 1 ?????

    • 28 this year

      I dont think any rookies will be called up right on September 1st but after the minor league season is over, we may see CoJo or David Adams or someone like that get their rookie at bat.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

      CoJo, Mustelier, maybe Adams and Mesa. Those are my guesses.

    • All Praise Be To Mo

      Why is that sad? That means we’ve kept people healthy this year and haven’t needed to call up any young kids. Only rookie that would have gotten ab’s this year would have been Montero and he’s been horrible for the M’s.
      Would we all love to have a Mike Trout or Bryce Harper, of course, but the Yanks being the great team they are never have a shot at talents like them.

      • Samuel

        Trout was picked 25th overall in the 2009 draft, the spot the Yankees were supposed to have picked, but the Yankees lost that pick to the Angels when they signed Mark Teixeira as a free agent.

        If the Yankees did draft Trout in that spot, no way he would be playing in the majors right now for them. Trout would still be in the minors while Andruw Jones still received Trout’s plate appearances.

        That is just how the Yankees work.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

          Cool story, bro.

  • Genghis

    Yyyyeeeeiiiiii—YEICOK!!!!!!

    • RetroRob

      Okay. Fair enough.

  • Wayne

    How is Hayden sharp doing? Any chance he pitches in staten island this year

    • JohnC

      He’s been kinda up and down so far. Couple of good outings, couple of mediocre ones. Camarena and Cote have been much more impressive
