Game 38-Back to baseball

With the past 24 hours being overwhelmed by Posada-gate, I’ll just tie up some loose ends with Jorge before moving on to tonight’s game.

Jack Curry Tweets that “Posada said he apologized to Girardi. “I had a bad day yesterday,” he said.

Brian Hoch Tweets that Jorge plans to talk to Brian Cashman as well.

Jorge Posada Sr, who is a scout for the Rockies, says he “made a bad decision”

-Laura Posada has removed the “bad back” post from her Twitter account.

-The Yanks are seeking to dock Jorge two days pay, according to Joel Sherman

-Buster Olney Teetwed this: “Bottom line on the whole Posada thing: This episode will accelerate his departure from the team unless he starts producing at the plate ASAP”

To nobodies surprise, Jorge Posada is not in the lineup tonight. With two tough lefties in Lester and Price due to face them in the next two games, it was unlikely he would have played anyway.… Click here to read the rest

Game 31-Colon's Old Spice

 

 

Bartolo Colon goes for the Yanks tonight, and while he may not have quite the zip on his fastball that he did a few years back, it’s still good enough for the 2nd best K/BB rate in the American League. That’ll teach ya for making fun of the fat kid back in school. Texas counters with Derek Holland, who sports a career ERA of 8.10 facing the Yankees (4 G). Should be a good night for the boys in pinstripes (road gray style), which of course means they’ll lose 10-0. That’s just baseball, Suzyn. Anyway, here’s your lineups for tonight, courtesy of LoHud:

 

YANKEES (18-12)
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B

Game 18-"It was beautiful"

That’s what Yankee manager Joe Girardi said last night about Brett Gardner’s HR after Russell Martin was hit by a Josh Rupe pitch. When you start giving up HRs to the Brett Gardner’s of the world, you might want to call your uncle with the plumbing business and tell him to leave a job open for you. There’s a good chance you’ll need it. Here’s what O’s manager Buck Showalter had to say about the incident from last night:

Buck Showalter: “We asked (Rupe) after the game. He said, ‘I know what it looked like. I was trying to go in.’ It did not look good. I didn’t like it at all. But I choose to believe my pitcher and I’ve known Josh for a long time. I think he’d be very straight with me. But I do understand what it looked like and it didn’t look good. Martin had a great night tonight. He’s had a good season for them, was a great pickup.… Click here to read the rest

Game 8 | Los Angeles Angels at Yankees | Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Another weekday day game. Alas.

Mike will be at this one, although I don’t know where he’s sitting (or if he’d want people to come say hi), otherwise I’d tell you to go harass him.

Here’s today’s lineup via LoHud:

Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
