JULY 31, 2008: MANNY FOR BAY

.
.
The biggest trade was Boston trading troubled leftfielder Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers for Jason Bay . It gets Manny who's a notorious Yankee killer out of the division but does it really weaken the Bosox?

No!

Jason Bay stats match or equal Ramirez offense input. And his on field defense and clubhouse presence should should exceed Manny!

Manny's numbers

AVG.
.299
HR
20
RBI
68
SB
1


Jason Bay's numbers

AVG.
.282
HR
22
RBI
64
SB
7




BYE BYE KYLE, WE WILL MISS YOUR EXPLOITS



I like having an intimidating Goose Gossage, Jon Papelbom crazy wild eyed presence and that what was Farnsworth, He was our only guy like that!!!
.
.
Now the Yankees didn't add much needed lefty rotation inning eater Jarod Washburn like I hope they would have
.
.
.
.
.
However Other than the Damaso Marte, Xavier Nady deal which was a steal, I'm NOT on board
trading our 8th inning tough guy fighting mad spirit of Kyle Farnsworth for an over the hill, yet hall of famer best years are behind him Ivan Rodriguez what are we going to do with him next year!!!!
!

?
They must have ALOT of confidence in Jose Veras, Edwar Ramirez and Darrel Robertson with Brian Brunney comming back and Damaso Marte
........and with Mark Melanchon and Andrew Brackman waiting in the wings???

To Deal away the 8th inning and, grit of the team!!!

JULY 29TH 2008, GOOD TRADE

XMAN and the best lefty specialist out there DAMASO MARTE for JEFF KARSTENS and I am a RUBEN RIVERA, RICKY LEDEE CLONE JOSE TABATA



But we're still not done I think we need another power lefty to close out the roation and should go after Washburn



as far as taking 2 out of 3 in Boston, would've been nice to take 3 out of 3
and Joba should'nt thrown @Youklis, because it puts our players namely AROD in jeaporady to be thrown @ themselves ...Shouldn't have opened that pandora's box, let Boston open that box.

. UPDATE, JULY 13, 2008 - THE ALL STAR BREAK- grades
.

.
.
.
CAN THE YANKEES BE "PITCHED" TO???
.
.
. I mean it isn't like AJ Burnett is Sandy Koufax you know you're in trouble when Sabathia 2 run homerun today... has more an offence input than your entire team!!!








there is to many below .250 hitters in this lineup not carrying there weight!
I know it's tough without Matsui and Damon missing...but still





OK, it's a little past midseason but time for grades here





MANAGER/ COACHES



Joe Giradi C- , lost about 4 games I can think of due to poor decision making



LINEUP


C. Posada Inc- injured much of season. cannot play up to the level of weak hitting Molina behind plate anymore

C. Molina B- gets key hit, sometimes when needed, never going to be a .280 hitter but defense is impecible

1B. Giambi B+ terrible april but has carried team lack luster offense the rest of way, liability in field

2b. Cano F+ ; terrible head isn't in the game when his role in lineup is lessended @ in bottom third of lineup

3B. Arod D+ ;does not get the clutch hit, overswings guesses wrong strikes out in key spots too much

SS. Jeter-D+ ;does not get the clutch hit anymore defense has improved from last year


LF. Matsui A- injured may not return this season but was hitting .320 and getting on base

Damon B- liability in field may hit 3-5 or go 4-4 but go hitless the rest of the week too
streaky



CF. Melk Man D- ; great defense very little offense in spurts he shows what he can do but to many 0 for 4 performances head seems NOT to be in game as much when hes batting 7th or 8th like he is when @ leadoff


RF. Bobby Abreu C- ,showing signs of age and rust in outfield not on base as much as his career .395 mark would suggest way down this year to about in the .320's still is a gamer but in the 3 hole maybee needs to set things off more in this lack luster offense and show more power!


Reserves

inf- Wilson Bettemit -D+ ; for someone with a beautiful cut and swing he really cant hit!!! may show flashes of power, but is a liability in lineup and to opposing teams a sure out

1B-OF Shelley Duncan -D ; isnt a major league hitter! will never hit above .240 may get his 15 to 30 homeruns a year if gets at bats but isn't a major league monster the way he dominates class AA


Pitchers


Mussina A+ ; what more can you say he's the professional

Wang B+ ; injured, counted on to be yanks #1, but really is a number 2, or three on most good staffs

Joba B+ ; too early to tell seems to be he's going to be a good starter NOT great!! but was a great set up man closer


Pettite C ; two good starts, one bad....even during bad starts battles a professional

Rasner C+ ;end of rotatiom typre starter , doesnt have greatest stuff but is a battler I like him

SidneyMonsoon; ?- ;hasnt been with team long but has pitched well has good stuff just hes firecracker waiting to blow up


Phil Hughes F :was he really hurt or over valued prospect

Ian Kennedy F : refer to Phil Hughes


Bull Pen


Edwin Ramirez C- : has good stuff, inconsistant

Latroy Hawkins F : never good in close game, would only pitch him when up by 4 runs or more

Jose Veras B- : has electric stuff , but sometimes it's to straight

Kyle Farsworth B- : has electric stuff, but sometimes it's too straight, very good thus far, but worries me nicknames Kyle "you know I'm going to blow a big game sometime" Farsnsworth


Mariano Rivera A+ :what more can you say about the legend having his best season





--------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall grade C minus- this team @ times seems lazy and uninspired when it comes to guys like Cano or distracted when it comes to Arod, team needs Jeter and Arod to step it up big time, more so than they have an infusion of youth and speed and Damon to be well Damon
and to get competive pitching in 2nd half to even contend

JULY 6TH REPORT

GOOD WiN TONIGHT!

YANKEES 5
RED SOX 4

Box Score
Standings



But we wouldn't have had to come back in extra inning situtions if "Joba" only listened to his catcher in the 5th inning bases loaded and challenged Ellsbury blew it right by him , instead of getting cute throwing a change and walking him and in another run!!!

ALL GREAT PITCHERS REAR BACK AND GIVE IT ALL IN TIGHT SITUATIONS!!!



***two big games against the Rays and three in Toronto this week that will test this teams Mantle
But how about that kid Gardener???

July 2nd, 2008 -Hank Steinbrenner: Yankees need to wake up





NY YANKEES, 44-40 - 7.5 GB



QUOTE: Hank Steinbrenner...
"We've got to start hitting," Steinbrenner said from Tampa, Fla. "They've got to start waking up. They've shown in flashes what they can still do
." link




-----> fault---------> Joe Giradi ....who doesn't much alter his lineup card and when he does he takes out all his leftys against Oliver Perez in favor of Justin Christian where is he now?... and Wilson Betimet who shown he cant hit from the right side!!



....after Jeter and Arod @ three and four there was NOBODY!!!





  • Jeter hasn't been CAP'N CLUTCH or isn't the same player, he was in the Yankee years late 90's LINK


  • Melky Cabrera .240 avg and Cano just aren't cutting it!



  • Posada hasn't ever gotten untracked with early season injuries and losing Matsui .332 doesn't help either!


  • Arod overswings frequently when faced in late pressure spots link



WHERE IS CAP'N CLUTCH?







.
.
.
.
  • I never seen a worse situational hitting team. they look confused out there. they're letting opposing pitchers dictate to them... instead of dictating theirselves, not like they're facing Sandy Koufax everytime out there! Get your pitch and drive it to the gap!!!
