Game 106: Yankees vs. Orioles

The Trade Deadline is just a few hours away, quickly approaching at 4 p.m. ET, and thus far the Yankees have been very silent. They didn’t mortgage the farm for Ubaldo Jimenez, and unless they want to make a major push for the Astros’ Wandy Rodriguez, they might just let this one pass by without shaking things up too much.

You still might see a smaller move from the Bombers, though at this point it’s unclear what that’d address. The ideal areas for upgrades are the rotation and the bullpen (especially a lefty), but this is a thin market and the Yankees have very publicly said that they don’t think they can do better than what they’ve been getting off the disabled list.

Some trade buzz — The Yankees and Astros discussed Wandy Rodriguez as recently as this morning, according to Jon Morosi, but there’s a sense out there that Rodriguez isn’t worth the price. Houston is looking for high-level prospects and Rodriguez is owed $38.3 million through 2014. The Yankees have been in touch with the Padres about reliever Heath Bell, Jon Heyman notes, but those clubs may also not be matching up very well.

“If nothing happens, we’ve gotten to where we are because of the guys in that room,” Joe Girardi said this morning. “They’ve pitched well, they’ve played well and they’ve done a nice job.”

Here are the lineups:

ORIOLES (42-62)
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Vladimir Guerrero DH
Chris Davis 1B
Mark Reynolds 3B
Felix Pie LF
Craig Tatum C

Another good win, altho do not like DJ’s injury. Once again Freddie pitches well. As I have stated before on this blog; IF playoffs started today the Yankees start CC, Colon and Freddie in that order. Might even throw in Nova to the equation. As far as I am concerned neither AJ or Hughes factor into the equation. And IF I am right the off season for those two guys might get interesting.

Bob,
It was an off-balance flip. Not something to hang on Jete.

Confidence in Freddy. Obviously not as much in the infield. What’s with Jeter? Rare error but perhaps less rare than it used to be. Jeter is not what he used to be at the plate or in the field.

Bob,
Either is fine. It only gets confusing when a third party addresses us. Bill was using RGK, that’s fine too! My middle is George.

Hey Bob G. back to you. Do you go by Bob or Robert? You and me have our names in common. I’m Robert G. and you’re Robert G. It’s Robert Gordon for me. Anyway, we’re probably not that far apart in age either. A couple of old farts who still think we know a lot about baseball and the Yankees.
