4/7- Yankees at Red Sox: Game 3

YANKEES (1-1)
  1. Derek Jeter SS
  2. Nick Johnson DH
  3. Mark Teixeira 1B
  4. Alex Rodriguez 3B
  5. Robinson Cano 2B
  6. Jorge Posada C
  7. Curtis Granderson CF
  8. Nick Swisher RF
  9. Brett Gardner LF
LHP Andy Pettitte
18-9, 3.74 ERA against Boston
Limited to a 100 pitch limit around.




RED SOX (1-1)
  1. Jacoby Ellsbury LF
  2. Dustin Pedroia 2B
  3. Victor Martinez C
  4. Kevin Youkilis 1B
  5. David Ortiz DH
  6. Adrian Beltre 3B
  7. J.D. Drew RF
  8. Mike Cameron CF
  9. Marco Scutaro SS
RHP John Lackey

5-8 with a 4.26 ERA in 21 appearances -- 20 starts -- versus New York.



NOTES: Yankees picked up former Padre 1B/OF Chad Huffman off of waivers and he was sent to AAA. Chan Ho Park is "sick" so he will not be available tonight (good news). Joba is available but less likely to go according to Girardi:
“I’m not afraid for him to go back-to-back at this point, but I’m not real comfortable – depending on how he feels – with him going three out of four days yet.”
It is going to be a hot 85 in Boston tonight. The difference in temperature in the 3 games is really unusual.

Notes: Marcus Thames is making his Yankee debut due to his general success against lefties. He is a career 1-2 with a long ball against the brave Jon Lester. Tonight keep an eye on the chemistry between Posada and Burnett. Though the rift was over blown by the media it is vital that these two win together. As I said in the last post Phil Hughes is with the team tonight. It seems Girardi is playing match-ups to determine who will come in from the pen. We just ask he doesn't bring in Chan Ho Park. My guess is Joba will be good to go though throwing 30 on sunday. Marte, though he looked awful, is physically fine and is able to pitch tonight.

There will be a light rain in Boston to start the game.

News, Notes and Links

  • Alan Horne has torn his rotator cuff and will be out for the 2010 season. This guy has been through a lot.
  • Aceves' back is still soar and he is day-to-day. This reoccurring problem may keep Alfredo off of the roster for opening day.
  • River Ave Blues has a great breakdown of the Red Sox in preview for the 2010 season.
  • The Yankees really have no idea what to do about Joba, NoMaas makes this very clear.
  • NYY Stadium Insider has been chronicling the demolition of the original Yankee Stadium, Gate 2 has been taken down.
  • Teixeria (right) was hit by a pitch in the game tonight vs the Orioles. He was examined but no x-Rays were taken.
  • Pat Venditte, the Yankees ambidextrous pitcher, will be making a minor league start tomorrow.

Baseball is Coming

It has been a long winter. Yankee fans have been graced with another World Championship but that has made me even more excited for the next season. The season kicks off this Sunday at 8 p.m. on ESPN. The Notorious C.C. will take the hill for the Yanks and it will be interesting to see if he follows the trend of slow starts. For the past few years it takes C.C. a few weeks to get back into the swing of things. With the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry to start the season the fans are begging the big C to come out strong and shut down the Sox. Last year they owned for the first half of the year. I don't know if I can take that again.

Revised PECOTA Puts Yankees in 1st.

The PECOTA predictions that we looked at yesterday were apparently wrong. They had the Yankees in 3rd in the AL East while the Rays held down 1st. Baseball Prospectus released a revised version of PECOTA and here is how it looks now.





I really don't expect a tie to be the outcome; a close race with the Yankees coming out on top, perhaps.

Step On Their Throats

The Yankees have taken 3 out of 4 so far from the Sox in a crucial time in the season. The playoffs are looming and the Yankees have improved their lead in the division to a modest 5 and 1/2 games. The Yankees have been playing exceptional ball lately, winning 6 straight and now hold the best record in baseball.

We face the Red Sox again tonight for the final game in the series. Under the ESPN national spotlight it will be Jon Lester vs Andy Pettitte.

As for yesterday's game it was the best game that I have been to all year. C.C. pitched a gem and had killer stuff and we shut down the Sox.

:(

So, after a two hour rain delay, the Yankees finally played a barely watched game, lost a close one to the Sox again, AND now Posada's hurt. Awful.

Comic: Red Sox Sweep



















After a two long painful losses the Red Sox swept the series today in a 4-1 win over the bombers. In other the games the losses were mostly a product of the bullpen. Today however a lack of run support cost us the game. When Brett Gardner drives in your only run you know you're in trouble. The Red Sox had a big 5th inning and the Yankees could not answer. Pettitte pitched well and seemed to be the bearer of bad luck. 2 errors by Angel Berrora caused the 5th inning to unravel into a disaster. Cano's face says it all (right). The bottom line is that Yankees deserved to lose. With a grand total of 35 runners left on base in the series. It's the worst to be swept by Boston but we have to move on and focus on the upcoming series with the Tigers.

An interesting side note: Jeter tied Mickey Mantle for the Yankees record of 8,102 career at bats when he struck out in the 7th.

So here's my angry kneejerk reaction....

You know, I didn't think it could get worse than last night but it somehow did. I got home with the score 2-0 early on and with Burnett I didn't think they needed much more. Then I had to leave again. I got back with the score 6-0 and things immediately got bad. Their were so many twists and turns that its mostly a blur with only a few moments standing out. Melky's at bat, Varitek's grand slam, the last glimmer of hope at the end, and a few others. The offense certainly did its job and Burnett is allowed one bad start but I'm worried about this bullpen. That's one thing I was totally wrong on this offseason. Mark Melancon's debut can't come soon enough and I really miss Brian Bruney already. Two losses like that back to back are tough to take but you just have to move on and hope Andy Pettitte can deliver a gem tomorrow. This bullpen certainly needs it.

Final Thoughts: Ortiz looks lost without Manny, Papelbon may be the biggest douche to pitch a baseball since the golden days of Curt Schilling, and I want A-Rod back.

Mike's AL East Comparision

Over the past three month Mike NYY has worked hard to compare the Yankee, Rays and Red Sox at all of the positions. He finished up yesterday; so I though I would get them all together in one place for easy access:



Good work Mike.
