7/30: Gonzalez vs. Garcia
Posted 30 July 2012 - 08:35 AM
NY is coming off losses in games started by its two best pitchers and now turns to Freddy Garcia, who has been spotty in recent starts. Baltimore counters with 28-year-old rookie RH Miguel Gonzalez, who is 2-2 in four starts with a 4.28 ERA. He has never faced the Yankees.
Ichiro, who has a single in every game he has played for NY, killed two rallies on Sunday night with weak outs. The former Mariner is hitting .167 with RISP. Some of his outs have been Little League pops to the infield. This is not a hitter Kevin Long can talk to much because Ichiro has his own unique style of hitting.
Here's the good news: Ichiro goes to LF tonight, which puts Andruw Jones on the bench. Jones's lack of range in the outfield has become a detriment to the team. He can play right field at home but not left field.
This Yankee team is far from a finished product. They need Joba back in the bullpen, something that should happen this week. They need Petttitte and A-Rod back in September with enough time left to get competitive for the playoffs. Last year, A-Rod came back from a thumb injury in September and never found his stroke, not then and not in the playoffs.

Interesting how the Cashman/Girardi team works. When Ichiro became available, Cashman talked to his manager and came up with a list of rules Ichiro had to consent to before the Yankees would make the trade: 1. Not batting leadoff, more likely batting at the bottom of the lineup; 2. Would play left field; 3. Might sit against certain lefties. Ichiro agreed and the deal was done.
Swisher still at DH, Girardi and Cashman are being very conservative bringing guys back with the big division lead.

Injured left hand on Hardy's single. He dove for ball hit to his left, ball bounced left and Teix reached back for bad hop and landed hard on his glove hand.
What happened to Teixeira?

Just saw Phil Coke in the Boston game. He looks 15 pounds heavier than last year. Also, Austin Jackson pulled a Granderson on Shoppach's triple. Ran a bad route.

I was wondering how Carl got a triple. Reminds me of Ann Richards' campaign joke about the young George Bush. "he was born on third base and thot he had hit a triple."
He gave Crawford a triple earlier in the game by playing the Monster poorly.

Rapada just remembered who he was. Boone Logan is Boone Logan. I would take Andrew Miller if The Sox were allowed to trade with NY.
Yankee bullpen hasn't looked too efficient lately.

This is not good. Wrist injuries take a lot of time. Cashman may be swinging into action tomorrow. Teix is tough to replace.
"Yankees will send Mark Teixeira for tests on his left wrist tomorrow. "It's a big concern," Girardi said."

Had same thing, same treatment in 2009. We all exhale. I don't know how the Yanks replace what Teix does. Or Cano.
