Washed out in the Bronx

Monday’s game between the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics was postponed due to inclement weather and will be rescheduled for a later date in the schedule.

The announcement was made by the Yankees at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET, the first rainout at the new Yankee Stadium. Cold, wet and windy conditions were expected to continue for the rest of the evening in the New York area.

Both clubs plan to use the same starting pitchers for Tuesday’s matchup, with left-hander Dana Eveland drawing the call for the Athletics and left-hander Andy Pettitte making the start for the Yankees.

A makeup date was not immediately announced but it is expected to be in July. The two clubs are scheduled to meet again in the Bronx July 24-26, with a common off-day July 23.

Is this a sign of what the season will be like? Yanks up
4-2 top of ninth, bases loaded, no outs. Now it’s a tie game!
No offense in the clutch. Mariano is beginning his downhill
slide. If they lose this game in extra innings it will give Boston a big boost.

BP,
Bringing back Shelley raises the problem of a 40Man roster move. I read somewhere today that Humberto Sanchez is nearing the end of another rehab!

Pettitte goes tonight.

BP, It’s Yankee Baseball we’re here to talk about. Lets cut all the other garbage out, Most of us are not interested in the petty bickering. An occasional spin off to football or other sport is OK, But remember Yankees Baseball is #1.
Skipping Wang for a turn or 2 is a good idea, He needs to get his head on straight, He definitely has problems with men on base, he appears to lose his concentration.. GO Yankees!!

Golf, Matt needs to stop dissing Yankees llike Pettitte, Mussina and Giambi for me to give him a pass.

And it’s clear that what is wrong with Wang is mechanical. Even MLBTv was able to figure it out and I have confidence that Eiland and CMW will too. They skip a start, let him work side sessions to get his memory back. I don’t think there is anything wrong with his foot. What I DO think is that, while he was laid up and rehabbing he naturally favored it, changed his gait and other stuff but now that it’s healed he needs to get that old memory back.

I still maintain that, unless something miraculous happens, that Godzilla retires by mid-season after a stint on the DL. Sure they weren’t planning on him playing MUCH OF this year but I think there was hope that a game now and then would be in order. It looks like that is out now and as DH he’s not really able to do much either. It’s a shame for sure but there’s sometimes no fighting mother nature.

Matt and bp, can you take your football chatter and your inane 8 year old girl hissy fit off line to some other place where we don’t have to read it? I come here for baseball, Yankees baseball not to hear what fat Tuna is doing next or read you two sniping.

Betemit was garbage we could all see that at the end.
Bill Parcells cut Cowboys kicker Jose Cortez in the locker room not for mouthing off to the media but for missing kicks. If he mouthed off to the media, it was after he was released. Parcells almost cut him a week earlier but after a missed extra point, Larry Allen punched Cortez, Parcells wanted to cut him on the field but Jerry Jones intervened.

I read the Taibbi piece. And forgive me if I don’t feel like joining the Greek chorus of Yankee haters in the media. Anyone who welcomes the collapse of the Yankees with “God, is it going to be fun to see” is far from an objective observer and just one more in a long line of haters. Next.

For the record, I’m not a Cashman defender, but if there’s one thing that people outside of NY fail to realize–and those of us living here sometimes seem to conveniently forget–is that Yankee fans and ownership are the most impatient of all, and not going to wait 5-10 years while a team grows into a championship. That may fly in Tampa or Kansas City but not in NYC. When it comes to winning a World Series, the Steinbrenner family subscribe to the Malcom X approach: by any means necessary. And that means spending the big bucks. Does it always work? Obvioulsy not. But, for better or for worse, that’s how it is here. Oh, and Taibbi failed to mention how the team actually lowered its payroll in ’09. But he’s too busy vilifying to paint a complete picture. Yes, let’s pounce on the evil Yankees who took CC, AJ, and Tex away from the teams they really wanted to play for by luring them away with cash. Please, spare me. (Like Tex, who still idolizes Donnie Baseball was going anywhere else.) With whomever these guys signed with they were going to be set for life anyway, so vilifying the Yankees for offering more–and more importantly, with those players freely accepting the loot–is disingenuous and lame on Taibbi’s part.

Could Cashman have done a better job during his tenure? Absolutely. I think even his greatest apologist would agree with that. But as long as George Steinbrenner is alive, the Yankees will be chasing after the big free agents in pursuit of the ultimate prize. It’s always been that way, no matter who’s been the GM.
(Btw, the vast majority of my non-Yankee fan buddies all say they wish their teams had ownership that fiercely invested in trying to win a championship, instead of coasting.)

I read were the Yanks are skipping Wang from a start from Boston. Giradi you can’t hide him those big league hitters has caught up to him. They are taking is sinker (unless it don’t sink) and laying for him to bring that ball up. If he can’t get that fastball inside with some authority they will continue to hammer him. I have never seen him knock a hitter down. He stands out there like a chump. Those hitters are leaning over the plate and he is letting them get away with it. Grow a pair Wang, grow a pair. One pitch is for relieve pitchers that throw 1 inning. The outfield is terrible those players are running around the bases without a care, nobody has an arm out there, and don’t let the ball be hit in the alleys (no matter how high) they not going to catch it. They look like bufoons out there. Bring Austin Jackson up put him in centerfield and live with it. Take a chance because it will only get worst. Put the present centrfielder in leftfield and Damon DH.

Robert, I have a feeling we will see black Shelley Duncan back in the Bronx soon and Matt will say he is hitting again with .72 BA

The GM of the New York Yankees may be the worst ever at the best job in the world. Which is why he’ll inevitably fail this year in his shameless attempt to buy a World Series.
