Game 39: The Birds fly North to the Bronx

Let’s start it off with tonight’s lineup:

SS Derek Jeter

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

3B Alex Rodriguez

DH Hideki Matsui

RF Nick Swisher

2B Robinson Cano

CF Melky Cabrera

C Francisco Cervelli

And on the mound, Carsten Charles Sabathia


Hot Hands

Girardi continues to play a similar lineup, and a lineup that I personally like very much. How about you? What is your desired lineup considering the current lineup?

Indecisive Management

Supposedly Brian Bruney was activated today, but the Yankees have yet to make a corresponding roster move. Are they going to wait until the game starts?

Oh So It’s His Fault…

Joe Torre (who I personally wanted out of New York no later then after the 2004 season) says Scott Proctor can blame himself for his arm problems. According to Torre, Proctor was pitching stupid, going out to pitch when he was hurting. I’m sorry but how Torre blame Proctor, Joe is supposed to be the guy who can tell when a guy is pitching hurt. Also, how come Torre only says things about players after they are not his players anymore, Proctor is a Marlin now, and the Yankee book was written after he left the Yankees. Sorry to pick on Joe, I know many fans liked him, and I liked him too until the point when I felt it was time for him to go. Well anyway, good luck to Scott Proctor who just had Tommy John surgery last week, hopefully he can get his career back on track.

The Kimberly Jones Blog

I recommend that you give the Kim Jones blog a look. It really has some interesting content on it, recently she did a set of Q and As with Paul O’Neil.

If your not good, Santa won’t bring you presents

If you don’t vote for Nick Swisher, Santa will not bring you presents. I am only joking. However, it won’t hurt to vote for him. Make the guys over at VOTESWISHER.COM happy.

  1. Hey Chris!! Brian Bruney is back on the 25-man roster!! But Edwar Ramirez got sent back down to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees!!! Jose Veras should have been sent down because his control is terrible and his E.R.A. is higher than Edwar Ramirez or designated him for assignment!!!!

  2. I too wish Veras was gone. I am pretty sure he is out of options, so he would have to be DFA. That has to be the reason Edwar got the axe. It’s a buisness.

  3. I know that now!! It is a business! The only reason the Yankees kept Jose Veras on the team that the Yankees are afraid somebody going to claimed Jose Veras off waivers with his power fastball that reach 94-95 mph fastball with a nasty curveball but he don’t throw for strikes consistenly well!! That’s so frustrating with a power pitcher like him!!! Jose Veras nibbled too much in trying to hit the corners instead of the catcher sitting up in the middle and letting the movement take the ball out of the corners of the strike zone!!!
