Making It Rain: Yanks/Mets Gamer II

It is raining in New York, but it sounds like it could really start dumping on Jason Giambi.  In the Journal News, Pete Abaham writes:

Major League Baseball has launched an investigation into Giambi’s disclosure and ordered him to stop speaking about the issue.

"I’m not going to discuss the matter any more," Giambi said within minutes of arriving at Shea Stadium for last night’s game against the Mets. "Sorry about that."

Pete also reports that Giambi’s admission may embolden an effort to void Giambi’s contract.  Brian Cashman was unable to comment other than confirming that there will be an investigation by the commisioner’s office.

I’m unclear as to what there is to look into; what Giambi said was straight forward and unambiguous, but it is obvious now that straight forward, unambiguous speech is not officially sanctioned.  Fortunately, Mayor Joe Quimby is going on a fact-finding mission.

In the mean time, the Yankees lost 3-2 to the Mets despite a fine performance from Andy Pettitte.  Besides Pettitte’s quality start and a two-strikeout relief inning from Proctor, the only significant Yankee highlight was a two-run blast from Hideki Matsui, who went two for four on the night.  Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada extended their hitting streaks to 13 games, but the Yankees’ offensive drought continued.  The team is averaging three runs per game in its last eight.

Oliver Perez pitched a fine game for the Mets, and Endy Chavez gave his team the lead with a two-run blast in the fifth off Pettitte, his first on the year.  In addition, Chavez threw out Johnny Damon from left field in the top of the first inning when Damon attempted to stretch a single.  Joe Smith relieved Perez to catch Jeter looking with two outs after a long at bat in the eighth.  Billy Wagner retired Alex Rodriguez on a grounder and punched out Posada in the ninth before Matsui hustled out an infield single, which brought up Giambi, pinch hitting for Melky Cabrera.  Jason worked a nine-pitch at-bat before chasing a breaking pitch at the ankles to strike out and end the game.

With Boston rained out last night, the Yankees fell ten games back of the AL East leaders yet are somehow still in a virtual tie for second in the division, or at least that’s one way to look at it.  The other way to look at it is that they are also effectively tied for last; such is the sad state of the division outside New England.  The Yankees now look to Darrell Rasner, who will take the mound for the 3:55pm eastern start (FOX), to keep them in the game while they continue to try and figure out how to beat a left-handed starter as Tom Glavine gets the ball for the Metropolitans.  Glavine is 4-2 with a 3.71 ERA in eight starts against the Yankees in his career.  Lineups follow, comment away.

  • I found this interesting:
    “Cashman did comment when asked whether he believed an apology should be extended by baseball.
    “There’s an implication that there was a lot of people that were involved that would know that, what was going on, and I can tell you that’s false,” he said. “We’ve spoken to that in the past, so I do have a problem with that, without a doubt. Because I can tell you – I can speak from being right there, too – that whatever goes on individually with these guys, is really on them.””
    Do you believe Cashman here? It seems he’s suggesting that steroids was a relatively well-kept secret.
    Anyway, I am bothered by MLB’s reaction to Giambi’s recent comments. There is absolutely no reason for any baseball player to speak candidly about steroids and the recent past. MLB is making sure that players stay silent.

    Nick-YF May 19, 2007, 2:30 pm
  • Cashman’s full of sh&*T. He’s just making sure no one is saying HE had any knowledge of it. Orel Hershiser was on ESPN radio yesterday and said even he knew that that kind of stuff was going on and he was usually kept out of most things since he was seen as a square and conservative.

    walein May 19, 2007, 2:46 pm
  • Nick, I agree with you and would go so far as to say I am disgusted by MLB’s reaction to Giambi. Cashman’s statement is exactly what I would expect a company man to say, which means I don’t believe him at all. He’s saying “I know I didn’t know. I know that most people who could know didn’t know. I know that all the people who are saying that they knew and that they knew a lot of other people who knew, didn’t really know what other people knew, but I do.” To take the line Jason took this last week may be part courage, part PR/saying what he thinks people want to hear, but at least I can respect it. I agree with Cashman that it is the each player’s responsibility in what they chose to eat/drink/snort/shoot/whatever, but to authoritatively state that a significant number of people in the game were unaware is simply not plausible.

  • We need an A’s-like run of 20 straight wins. That would make things more cheerful, at least..

    Lar May 19, 2007, 2:48 pm
  • As long as the “Making It Rain” still means they’ll avoid making it rain like Pacman Jones, the Yanks should be okay.

    QuoSF May 19, 2007, 3:25 pm

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:10 pm

    Making something happen sometimes means not doing stupid things when you are struggling.

  • Meanwhile, Reyes gets on with a single and we can assume he’ll score pretty soon.
    I just don’t have any faith right now.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:14 pm
  • The Yanks do not need Rasner hurt.
    Maybe I am nuts, but I believe that Karstens was hurt in the Sox game, not the Mariners.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:16 pm
  • Rasner is gone…
    Paging Roger Clemens.

    Nick-YF May 19, 2007, 4:19 pm
  • I am honestly at a loss for words on the injuries that the pitching staff for the Yanks have had.
    How there can even be the smallest discussion on firing Torre is not even slightly fair.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:20 pm
  • Hopefully the Yanks are smart and do not rush Roger up before he is ready.

  • Having Roger on a 70 pitch count for the yanks this week is prolly more productive then him starting at AA

    Anonymous May 19, 2007, 4:24 pm
  • Great timing on the games. Sox play, then Yanks play, then Sox play again. Nine straight hours of baseball in which I have a significant rooting interest. All by GameDay while I pack up my house… Hey, I’ll take what I can get.

    Paul SF May 19, 2007, 4:25 pm
  • A 70 pitch count does not solve the prolem. 70 pithes would still allow teams to possily get into the BP earlier than if he were healthy. With the state of the rest of the SP’s (exception being Pettite), the BP is already getting over used and does not need another starter contributing to it.
    There is probably someone at AAA who could help in the short time.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:27 pm

    Jordan Meisner May 19, 2007, 4:37 pm
  • It is becoming obvious that the Yanks need the services of a young priest and an old priest.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:38 pm
  • I’m not watching anymore and I worry that you’re being sarcastic, Jordan.
    I think in general the Yanks taking the season off will help me to read more, hang out more with my non-baseball fan friends, and to appreciate the great wonder that is life.

    Nick-YF May 19, 2007, 4:39 pm

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 4:40 pm

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:40 pm
  • Alright, good start to the inning! Cano HR, Phelps single.
    Now we get to see Myers try to lay down a bunt

    Jordan Meisner May 19, 2007, 4:41 pm
  • Glavine is eminently hittable as Phelps knocks a single. Myers up. This should be fun.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 4:41 pm
  • Gerb:
    Referencing last night’s discussion, I actually dislike Cano far more than Melky. Cano’s cocky swagger is completely intolerable; that play in the first embodies him as a player to me. He may be my least favorite Yank, the more I think about it.
    This game could have 20 runs in it. Glavine looks like a dirty dishrag.

    SF May 19, 2007, 4:41 pm
  • The good thing for the Yanks today is that Glavine has been very hittable. If the Yanks can get a reliever to throw a few innings of scoreless baseball they may have a chance.

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:42 pm
  • Wow, what a terrible play on a gift GIDP by Myers.

    SF May 19, 2007, 4:42 pm
  • Myers chops to second, Phelps out no double play as Easley is wild to first. Myers

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 4:43 pm
  • I wasn’t being sarcastic about Abreu. He made a nice running catch.

    Jordan Meisner May 19, 2007, 4:43 pm
  • Myers < slow.
    Damon singles to right. First and second, one out to DJ.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 4:44 pm
  • Are we looking at a 4.5 hour ballgame here?

    SF May 19, 2007, 4:45 pm
  • I think so SF
    Not sure who is slower pitching..Glavine or Myers

    Rob May 19, 2007, 4:46 pm
  • Jeter grounds to third, Damon out at second, but beats out the 643.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 4:47 pm

  • Seriously, who gets canned if the Yankees lose today and tomorrow?

    SF May 19, 2007, 4:58 pm
  • Tim McCarver and Joe Buck talk accessories. *wretch*
    Then a single to right scores Easley easily. Reyes at third. Myers isn’t going to be out there much longer.
    Rasner’s finger is fractured. FUCK.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 5:00 pm
  • Fractured right index finger. Jesus…and Clippard debuts tomorrow.
    I don’t think anyone–besides maybe Cashman at the end of the season–gets canned; how is this Torre’s fault? And the way today’s game is going so far, the Yankees offense could score 9 and still lose…

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 5:02 pm
  • Not sure SF, but there is someone in that organization that is not going to be around long.
    The trainer last time, perhaps the towel boy because the bats have been moist and not giving the hitters a good grip?

    Rob May 19, 2007, 5:03 pm

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 5:03 pm

    I don’t mean this in any trollish fashion, but the fact that you even typed this combination of sentences indicates something seriously wrong with the Yankees’ season.

    SF May 19, 2007, 5:03 pm
  • Sending Chavez there = stupid. Costs the Mets a run.
    Great throw by Posada though…

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 5:04 pm

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 5:04 pm
  • That’s just bad baseball by the Mets, basically running themselves out of another run. Really stupid. If only they weren’t playing the Yankees, I’d hope that that idiocy comes back to haunt them.

    SF May 19, 2007, 5:05 pm
  • i don’t mean to slop the trough here but…..on days like today i wonder how the whole “japanese arms race” worked out the way it did. igawa is a bus ride away from his next outing, while matsuzaka and okajima seem to be better than advertised. is this an international scouting thing? maybe the yankees where looking at another igawa. i’m pretty sure it’s a common name.

  • ARod grounds out to third. Wright almost throws it away but Delgado pulls it down.
    Posada goes the other way off the end of the bat to single to right. Abreu up.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 5:09 pm
  • Glavine ain’t going 6 today. He might not even make it through the fifth, truthfully. Or the fourth, the more I see him pitch.

    SF May 19, 2007, 5:09 pm
  • Did the Sox do something to handle thier Japanese pitchers differently? I think that maybe the Sox did given they had two and the money invested in one. Tek has a small listing of Japanese words on his wrist for Dice-K games. Have the Yanks done anything like that?

    Rob May 19, 2007, 5:10 pm

    Rob May 19, 2007, 5:14 pm
  • Off Damon’s glove…hard to tell if that would have stayed in or not. But it might have…

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 5:15 pm
  • How is it that some players just look like different guys than they were? Crisp is one, on the Sox, Abreu is another. I mean, Abreu used to wear pitchers out. I loved watching him bat, totally patient, really tough out. Now he just seems like an automatic out. Is it just a slump? Or does he look like he’s lost something to YFs?
    It’s interesting that all the discussion about the Sox not going after Abreu at the deadline last year has died down over the past month. I think this is a lesson in convenient discussions. Same goes for the Beckett/Lowell/Hanley/Sanchez dialogues.

    SF May 19, 2007, 5:16 pm
  • Rob: Yes, Posada had the phrase “STOP SUCKING” written in Kanji on his chest protector, but they made him cover it up with his name. Ironically, “Posada” translates in Japanese to “like a gentle wind throw straight shit over the middle,” which Kei obeyed quite deftly.
    Now Damon has a deep shot tip over the wall off his glove for a two run shot by Wright.
    Pardon me while I puke about something completely different.

  • Joe should go out right now, middle of the Mets batting, and grab Cano by the back of his neck and drag him off the field. Tell him that he’s not entitled to the uniform based on the previous year’s performance. Because that’s how Cano is playing right now; it’s like he did no work in the offseason, and came into the season like he deserves to succeed, hard work or not.

    Please just stop. I’m afraid 6 runs is more than enough considering the Yanks’ offense of late. A struggling pitcher can’t manage to give runs away to these bums.

  • 643 from Phelps, of course. Vizcaino up. Why even risk hitting? Just give up the out and go on.

    That’s an absurd possibility. Even more absurd would be the Yankees trying to void his contract based on the comments, considering they willingly allowed any reference to steroid use to be deleted from his contract during the original negotations. Cashman’s comments about Giambi’s comments might have been the most disingenuous words of the recent past.

    ELEVEN GAMES BACK for a team that has won the AL East nine times in a row. Wtf?

    Jordan Meisner May 19, 2007, 5:55 pm
  • On the bright side of things, I defy anyone to find a season other than 1998 in which the Yankees didn’t have a stretch where they went 18-22 after 40 games. The only reason we even notice it now is that it’s at the beginning of a season.
    Seven of nine hitters won’t be in a slump for the next 120 games; four starters won’t be injured for the next 120 games (probably); the Yankees won’t have a .214 winning percentage against the AL East all season; the Red Sox aren’t going to win 115 games.
    Let’s all just appreciate the small sample size here. There’s a fairly good chance that a team with this much talent will even things out and go 15-2 once or twice during the last four months of the season.
    Still, it’s terribly frustrating to lose while the Sox are incapable of doing so; oh well. It’s not even close to the time where scoreboard watching matters, especially given 13 head-to-head games against the Sox.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:28 pm
  • Jeter singles up the middle to score Phelps, so make that 3er for Glavine.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:30 pm
  • Matsui lines out to Wright to end the Yankee seventh. Villone, as d1 pointed out, looked good but he’s out. Who do we see now? Farnsinator?

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:31 pm
  • Phelps was credited for a single on that play in the top of the seventh.
    It’s Bruney for the Yanks.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:33 pm
  • If you’re Torre, do you just…push for the game to get called? I mean 5 runs in 2 innings is in no way insurmountable, but…I dunno, I’d kind of rather save the bullpen some work then hope for a miracle that most likely isn’t coming…
    Rain’s really coming down hard now.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 6:34 pm
  • I doubt it; they have to try to get the win.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:38 pm
  • Haha, I spoke way too soon. OK so we’ve established that Schoenweis kind of sucks, how about pulling him in favor of someone who won’t throw fat fastballs to the best Yankee hitters?

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 6:47 pm
  • ARod _rips_ a line drive out to left over the wall to make it 8-4. Damn he hit that hard.
    Now Posada takes a 3-1 pitch the other way to make it 8-5.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:48 pm
  • Abreu walks. That’s it for Schoenweis.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:50 pm
  • Cano grounds out to Easley, advancing Abreu. Phelps up with one away.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:53 pm
  • Awww f*ck…this is gonna turn into one of those season-changing f*cking comeback wins, isn’t it?
    Of course, I thought the same thing about the third Cleveland game…heh.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 6:55 pm
  • Phelps doubles to the left center wall, scoring Abreu, making the score 8-6. Giambi pinch hitting in the pitcher slot.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:55 pm
  • d1: gosh I hope so.
    Giambi grounds to Delgado, advancing Phelps to third. Two away to Damon.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:56 pm
  • The Cheater grounds out advances runner to third.

    Anonymous May 19, 2007, 6:57 pm
  • Damon hasn’t put the f*cking ball in the air all day and still looks like a shadow of his former self…how do you walk him in this situation? Jesus f*cking Christ…

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 6:58 pm
  • Damon walks. It’s first and third, two outs, Jeter up; he’ll face Aaron Heilman

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 6:59 pm
  • Heilman vs Jeter…would not be surprised to see a tie game here. Or maybe a 1-run lead.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 7:00 pm
  • I hate Fox. Wow, Torre said the exact same cliched line of crap every manager in his position would say: “There’s a lot of fight in this ballclub.” Stop the presses the man is a f*cking psychic.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 7:01 pm
  • Jeter grounds out 63 to end the Yankee eighth.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:03 pm
  • Hey, I was right about the six run thing, Gerb.

    SF May 19, 2007, 7:04 pm
  • Farns is on for the Yankees.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:06 pm
  • You were. Just hoping that the Yankees don’t prove you completely right.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:07 pm
  • That ball did hit Delgado’s foot.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:15 pm
  • Oh my god. Cano, what the fucking fuck.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:17 pm
  • Farns Ks LoDuca but not before the Mets plate two more to make it 10-6.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:21 pm
  • Matsui flies to center for out number one.
    Arod singles to right center.
    Jorge up.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:26 pm
  • Grumbles grumbles. On the flip side, I do have Dave Wright and Beltran on my fantasy team, so at least I get 2 runs and 2 SB out of it. Still, I rather they come back and win though. Grrr.

    Lar May 19, 2007, 7:27 pm
  • Posada is 4-4 as he singles to right center, advancing ARod to third. Abreu up with one away.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:28 pm
  • When I moved to NYC in May 2005 nearly everyday I would get comments about my Red Sox hat.
    Lately Yankee fans seem to have no fight left in them.

    TJ May 19, 2007, 7:28 pm
  • Wagner has a complete brain fart, trying to get ARod at home after knocking down the comebacker instead of throwing to first. His throw is errant, and the run scores. Horrible decision by Wagner.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:29 pm
  • Wagner is a f*cking idiot. Holy sh*t…forget your f*cking ERA and take the goddam out.
    If New York comes back, they need to send him a thank-you note.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 7:29 pm
  • Wow. Wow.
    Wagner is the stupidest person in the history of the universe. Concede the run, get the out. MORON!
    Mets deserve to lose.

    Dionysus May 19, 2007, 7:30 pm
  • Cano up. Redemption time, Robi.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:30 pm
  • Robi strikes out swinging. Bad day for Cano. Bitching at the ump doesn’t help your play in the field, Robi.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:32 pm
  • Cano finshes off a brilliant game by looking at strike 2, getting pissed, and waving harmlessly at strike 3. Granted, those were nasty pitches, but yeah…great work Robby.
    Phillips is lefty-masher looking to tie the game. Should have probably worked on making contact first. Mets win…but at least the Yanks put up a fight this time.

    desturbd1 May 19, 2007, 7:33 pm
  • Phelps is quickly behind 0-2. He strikes out. Mets win, 10-7.

    attackgerbil May 19, 2007, 7:34 pm
  • Is Torre’s demise imminent?
    If so, when?
    Losing two to the Mets with the Red Sox in town next. Seems like the Boss’ MO for a change.

    I'm Bill McNeal May 19, 2007, 7:35 pm
  • Three Reasons Why The Yankees aren’t going to make the playoffs this year.
    1) Cano’s Defense – He reminds of Chuck Knoblauch all over again. He made three errors today against Mets and lack of concentration. I put blame on Larry Bowa since He’s coaching Cano.
    2) Damon’s arm and lack of range covering centerfield. He misplayed David Wright flyball and Chavez. If I were Cashman I would sign Ichiro or Andruw Jones since They have strong throwing arm and can cover alot of ground than Damon
    3) Injuries in pitching staff and 6 rookie starters made a start for the Yankees.. Joe’s overusing the Yankees Bullpen.

    Dg - YF May 19, 2007, 7:55 pm
  • Robby looked like a whiny bitch in his last at-bat.

    Jordan Meisner May 19, 2007, 8:19 pm
  • What’s pissing me off is that we have some pitching (see AP yesterday) and some hitting (see today) but just never really have the luck (at least) to really have them together. Frustrating indeed.
