Nady Has Another Setback in Recovery

Sudden Impact buy Look Who’s Talking Too trailer buy Winged Creatures Mexican Hayride full movie Shogun release Tripping the Rift: The Movie hd According to Peter Abraham, Xavier Nady was pulled from Scranton’s game after 5 innings after feeling pain in his right elbow while making a throw.  It was believed that Nady was about ready to return to the Bronx, but this setback could keep him out even longer.  Hopefully everything’s ok with Nady, but I imagine the club will take it slow with him and try to let him rest his arm.

Discussion: The State Of Sports Media

Someone I work with asked me an interesting question today: “Do you know more about baseball than Mike Francesa?” My answer was very simple: “I probably do not know as much about the history of the game as someone like Mike, but I (and many other fans) know significantly more about today’s game than Francesa does.” The reasoning is very simple. In the last 15 years, new ways to measure, explain, and predict what goes on on the field have come into wide use. Anyone interested in understanding the game better and honing their grasp of the sport can easily Continue reading Discussion: The State Of Sports Media

2 Yankee Prospects Make Futures Game

Baseball America has the rosters Comin’ Round the Mountain trailer FleshEater dvdrip posted for the American and World teams.  2 Yankees were selected to be on the world team.  Jesus Montero is 1 of the 2 catchers on the world roster (the other being Carlos Santana), so he will likely get a fair amount of playing time.  This is Montero’s 2nd straight season being selected to the Futures Game. Honey video The 2nd Yankee picked was Manny Banuelos, which surprised me a bit.  He has pitched very well this season as an 18 year-old in Charleston, and is worthy of Continue reading 2 Yankee Prospects Make Futures Game

A-Rod's Rest, Girardi, and Francona

.!. From the excellent Marc Carig: But when asked if he would rest Rodriguez and his surgically repaired hip at least one game this week, Yankees manager Joe Girardi balked. I must ask, haven’t we seen this movie before? “We’re going to talk about it,” said Girardi, who played Rodriguez 38 straight since his return from hip surgery. “The thing is he had Monday off and he’s going to have next Monday off. But I still think I’m leaning towards giving him a day off here somewhere.” The Yankees enter Thursday night’s game with a chance to win the Braves Continue reading A-Rod's Rest, Girardi, and Francona

Cashman: We Have Enough Offense

.!. From Mark Feinsand: Asked if he believes he needs to add a bat to the roster before the deadline, Cashman put the kibosh on that quickly. Malevolence divx The Last Metro rip The House of Fear the movie Beer League move Ghosts of Mars film “We don’t need a bat,” Cashman said. “All the bats are here; I have no doubt about that.

Swisher In 200 Words Or Less

A running argument that I have had with some less stat-inclined Yankees fans is about the value of Nick Swisher. I just read this bit on Swisher from Steve Goldman, and thought it summed things up perfectly: Swisher does NOT play awful defense. He plays incredibly UGLY defense, but he’s actually quite a good defender. His UZR/150 is above average as is his range factor per game. Don’t confuse ungraceful and lumbering for bad. Care Bears: Journey to Joke-a-Lot dvd The Bone Collector video To which I, your humble servant, will add that there’s not a lot that’s pretty in Continue reading Swisher In 200 Words Or Less

Tex Tells AJC "You're damn right I took the money!"

.!. Mark Teixeira was interviewed before last night’s game by Denis Gorman of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He told the reporters that he enjoyed his time in Atlanta, but made it clear all along that he was going to maximize his free agent opportunity when they traded for him. Still, some in Atlanta seem to still harbor hard feelings over his departure: The 007 World Is Not Enough full Able to parlay his status as the premier position player available in free agency, Teixeira signed an eight-year, $180 million deal with the Yankees two days before Christmas Unendliche Geschichte, Die Continue reading Tex Tells AJC "You're damn right I took the money!"
