Okay, It’s A Bit About The Trades: Yanks-M’s Gamer

Bad news: Yankees didn't get Lee.

Good news: Yankees didn't give up Montero.

FANTASTIC news: Yankees don't face Lee tonight in Seattle.  Instead, they get up-and-down journeyman David Pauley while Phil Hughes goes for the Bombers at SafeCo.

  • Screw the M’s…we don’t need Lee anyway!!! GO YANKEES!!!
    (until we get him next year)

  • Weird instance where I’m happy either way. It does seem like Seattle got the better package, but Montero has had the more advanced bat.
    Career Minors:
    Smoak – age 23 – .293/.411/.461 = .872
    Jesus – age 20 – .309/.368/.486 = .855
    Moreover, the PCL is a hitter’s league while Jesus had to play half his AA games in Trenton.
    I’m glad to have Jesus aboard. Considering the Yanks are set at every position, and there’s no other starter near to Lee, I don’t think he’ll be moved this year. But it is tasty thinking about the arb-eligible players that could be had for him.
    Best news of the day? David Pauley.

  • The only good thing about these West Coast games is there is plenty of time to pregame…

  • I don’t know how any SF can whine about the state of their team. What’s not to love about guys like Nava, McDonald, Dubront, and Atchison. Isn’t that what baseball is about? And even if the Sox are injured, they’re two games out! So why is this place empty? Sure, it hasn’t been a pitching and defense year, but it’s been fun all the same. The Yankees are on a 110 win pace and I’m still not convinced a similar injury spell wouldn’t send them tumbling right out of October. This is what crazy seasons are made of.

  • LOL Rob is back and shitting up the place again.
    Perfect game in Philly right now. We may see a Pedro scenario, where he has to go into extra innings and then loses it.

    look guy, if you just wanna sit here by yourself and make up fanboy nicknames for all your favorite yankee crushes, i’ll be more than willing to oblige. some humility might help with that whole living in mom’s basement thingy you got going on.

  • Well that was a bummer. On the bright side: Vazquez is on quite a run and looks to be reliable.

    DustyDrB - YF July 11, 2010, 1:45 am
  • question of the day…when do they give up on joba…i just read something on espn that says the yankees are sticking with him as the 8th inning guy…for now…
    espn also reported that bob sheppard died early this morning…sad

    dc July 11, 2010, 10:46 am
  • The Yankees management ruined Joba…hopefully they don’t do the same with Phranchise. Throw out the stupid rules immediately.
    Really sad about Sheppard…man, what a life that man had.

    krueg July 11, 2010, 11:20 am
  • So at the break, we have to feel really good about our starting pitching. The guys who had been struggling over the past month or so have come around (Burnett, Hughes). Pettitte and Sabathia have been consistently great. And Vazquez has become the pitcher we traded for.
    Relief pitching, on the other hand, is a huge worry. Yankee relievers other than Mo have racked up a 4.70 ERA and 1.41 whip. I can’t be the only one thinking that Joba would be best served to go back to the minors. But he is instead still being counted on as the main set-up man. Robertson just gives up way too many hits (his BAA is around .300). He walks his fair share as well, but not considerably more than the last two seasons. The Sox overall relief numbers are worse, but they at least have more than one reliable guy with Papelbon and Bard. The Yankees have Mo and who knows?
    Relief pitching has to be a huge frustration for a manager because of the lack of season-to-season consistency. I’d like to hear a candid interview with a manager on the subject.
    The hitting so far this season has come from unexpected places. Cano has been the offensive star, with Swisher as the next best on the team. Gardner has been an on-base and run-scoring machine. The big names have been disappointments: Jeter, A-Rod, Teixeira and Granderson. Jeter has looked feeble at the plate since May. Granderson has never gotten going. A-Rod will have a mini-outburst but then lose it. Teixeira looks as though he’s getting into form. I’m not going to bash Posada’s season so far, as I think he’s having a fine season for a banged-up 38 year old catcher.
    Biggest problems: Relief pitching and depth. One or two injuries could cause this team to struggle badly. And how long do we stick with the most unproductive regulars: Granderson and – it hurts me to say it – Jeter. At least we could acquire guys like a David Dejesus or a Stephen Drew to give us depth and allow us to give players rest without making the lineup terrible.
