Wednesday Night Open Thread

Via Donnie Collins: Curtis Granderson will join Triple-A Scranton tomorrow, officially starting his 20-day rehab stint. He’s expected to play four or five games with the team. The 32-year-old slugger hit a homer and played all three outfield positions during an Extended Spring Training game today. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like Granderson could join the Yankees within a week.

    Holy cow. Reinforcements. Youk should be coming back soon as well, yes?

    Praise God. We’ll actually have a lineup again.

  • CS Yankee

    About f’ing time!

    Although Teix (or actually Jete) would be our first choice to return, but beggers can’t be choosers.

    Give us a healthy full productive versions of the lineup that includes Arod, Jete, Teix, Gazoo, and Pineda (sorry Nova) and we run this SOB all the way to 28.

    • CS Yankee

      OT, but Romine isn’t even regarded high enough in the binder to bat above the pitcher.

      • Dc

        Has nothing to do with that. It’s a NL manager strategy.

  • Pasta

    Romine playing tonight and batting 9th with phelps batting 8th?
    Did romine take a shit on girardi’s desk or what?
    Phelps in front of him wow what a huge dis.

    • CS Yankee

      Yes, because a kid batting .313 in AAA is far worse than the sneak attack of Phelps who likely last batted against live pitching in HS.

      Lets use Pronk again in the 8th against the lefty.

      • Pasta

        Joe hates offensive catchers

    • Dc

      Not a dis. It’s fairly common for NL managers to occasionally put the pitcher 8th.

      • Pasta

        If they can handle a bat. Has phelps ever even bunted in the bigs. Hes not pettitte or sabbathia.

        • Dc

          The theory is that by batting the pitcher in the number eight slot then the number nine hitter has a better chance of getting on base and being driven in by the number two to four hitter.

          • Havok9120

            Which is exactly how we’ve used Gardner for years now.

  • Get Phelps Up


    All of a sudden, the lineup will start to look pretty decent again!
