E-39

That’s right, we’re officially going back and changing a scoring decision from last night, taking away an error from Melky Cabrera and charging it instead to Section 39.

If you’re not familiar with the way things work at Yankee Stadium, every game brings a ‘roll call’ from the Bleacher Creatures, who chant out the names of the position players in the top of the first inning. (And if you’re not familiar with Yankee Stadium, how’s the weather look for this weekend in Boston?)

Anyway, the chant had worked around to Melky Cabrera in the first inning last night when Denard Span singled to center. Cabrera acknowledged the bleachers with a wave and then promptly booted the ball for an error, allowing Span to get to second base. Joe Girardi said that he didn’t realize what exactly happened until he saw the highlight on TV last night around 11:30 p.m. — needless to say, there was a discussion in the clubhouse this morning.

“He’s a kid having fun,” Girardi said. “You want your players to have fun, but you make sure he does it at the right time.”

Yanks have scouts following Dodgers
The New York Yankees have had scout Rick Williams following the Los Angeles Dodgers over the past few days, George A. King of the New York Post writes.

The Dodgers will be entertaining offers for versatile outfielder Juan Pierre and righthander Derek Lowe, who will be a free agent after this season.

New York is reportedly still interested in the Colorado Rockies Brian Fuentes but the consensus is that Colorado is asking for too much in return.

I was kidding about the “kilometer” stuff. It’s just amusing to me when people from other countries try and explain something by unit of measure. You have to sit and calculate in your head to get it back to “Standard” measurements. That’s one more reason to LOVE America. Everyone else uses the metric system, yet we still call our system “Standard”. It’s good to be the King.

Despite my clammering for a speedy outfielder like Pierre, I’d rather had Upton but that will never happen.

Texiera will end the careers of Giambi and possibly Posada in pinstripes. I don’t see it. Maybe they do it and then add Pudge when he’s waived. Unlikely, they have an agreement with Giambi $5M buyout + $5 salary.

Boston I don’t suspect is really interested in Tex, they just want to appear to be.

Doesn’t really matter anyway. I’ve not been too found of Washburn but he’s managed to do well against us… go figure? He has a no-trade to the Yanks? Bah, who cares if he doesn’t like us?

Papsmear? As I said already… he ain’t even the beginning of a pimple on the great Mariano Rivera’s *** yet, so yes he’s over-rated, talented yes, but he hasn’t had time to level off either.

This is the best sweep we’ve had all year! We now move into the WC soley do we not?

Rivera is one of the best to EVER throw a baseball 60′ 6″. You will find no one, not even the jaded dorks at ESPN or NESN who will disagree. He is a first ballot HOF’er who will be 2nd all time in saves (I’m still holding out hope that Hoff hangs it up next week!) with nearly every MLB pitching honor in his trophy case and a fist full of WS rings to pad his resume.
Poll ANY ML manager and say, if, right now, you could have ANY current closer on your team, who’d you pick? I’ll give even odds that Mo’s name will come up 98% of the time. Sure K-Rod and Paplebum may have better records but with a game on the line, there is none better, ever, who does what Mo does.
I’ll be able to tell my grandchildren about him and Baseball will talk of him in the same breath and with the same reverence as the elite who have played the game.

Let’s see how K-Rod and Paplebum are doing in 15 years…….

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE! YET ANOTHER SPECTACULAR START by a pitcher who is quickly making his case for HOF once he’s done. I’m doing rain dances for his health and well being. With just under half the season left, he only needs 7 more. Come on Moose, 7. I KNOW you can do it. I want to be able to tell people I got to see Moose pitch IN PERSON the season he got that elusive 20th win. I dont know if I might want it worse than he does. Oh, another “stat” in Moose’s favor? Only the 3rd pitcher in history to record 20 or more starts in 17 or more consecutive seasons. Come on Moose!!! 263 on the way to 270!!!

And he shares the same rectum-mouth ratio as the rest of the red sox fans. Sometimes i wonder if his face is really just his backside and he is just walking around on his hands.

Why can Paplebon jump up and down and do a Jig or the hokey pokie and people get on Joba the Hut for pumping his fist?

I say Jonathan Paplebon should stay off the DL for a season or two before he can start spouting off with his diarrhea of the mouth.

I’m just in a bad mood and whenever i do, I take it out on the red sox. OOOOH we are playing them this weekend. Good. I hope they eat bad Clam Chowder and have the runs all weekend.

On J-Wash, this deal would likely close the career of Andy Pettitte, they would likely not need another lefty in a rotation when J-Wash is scheduled to make $29M and you already have Hughes and Chamberlain and Wang penciled in to the rotation.

J-Wash is the hot name. Molina has caught for him in the past in Anaheim.
Also, we have scouts in LA watching Lowe (expiring) and Pierre.
Fuentes is a hot for many teams. Boston has opted to pursue Marty instead.

I agree get rid of Latroy, he’s done absolutely nothing for us. Paplebon is overrated??, Are you kidding, he’s a good young pitcher. I say if Washburn don’t want NY screw him, We don’t need him. But, Ichiro sounds good, He can hit and field with the best of ‘em. Posoda should get the surgery now, He is not hitting up to standards with his injury and will not be a help. Jose is doing a fine job as backup. He has a more accurate arm than Jorge. It may be a good idea to go after Salta…… From the Rangers… I don’t think Jorge is the answer at 1st, We’re better off w/ Big G or Sexton. For #5 the Yanks are looking at Lowe w/LA . Moose has been the surprise of the season, I among with some of you we,re of the mind that he was about finished, thankfully we were wrong,and are now hoping he can get 20+ wins in 2008

I can’t believe the Yanks didn’t go after Affeldt this off season. Even if he was doing as badly as Hawkins, at least he’s left handed, so you can just bring him in to face whatever big lefthander. Then the damage he can do is limited to the one guy.
