    Na, just on MLB Radio.

    Hughes getting rocked. :shocker:
  7. James the Saint WE SEC NOW

    I was reading the Post this morning and numerous articles mention Hughes, Garcia, Nova and Pineda competing for the 3 spots. Did I miss something? When the hell did Nova and Pineda get thrown into this?
  8. dblplay1212 New Member

    First I've heard of it. Probably just the media trying to make a story. Pineda and Nova are in the rotation. Garcia and Hughes battling for #5 spot.
  9. dblplay1212 New Member

    Rays @ Yankees on YES/MLB.TV at 1:05 today. 1st YES broadcast, I think.
  10. James the Saint WE SEC NOW

    Yea that's what I've been reading all along. I mean there's no way you trade Montero for Pineda and then put him in a competition with guys like Garcia and Hughes. :loldog:
  11. dblplay1212 New Member

    Yea, that's just a retarded scenario. No way I believe that until it comes out of Joe's mouth.

    Girardi said Robertson should be ready by opening day. Good it wasn't anything serious.

    Professor of mine knows some one who works on the grounds crew at Yankee Stadium and is taking a few of us out for a tour. Pretty stoked. Always wanted to see Yankee Stadium

    Pettitte coming back

    You know how sometimes you’re eating lunch when, out of nowhere, Andy Pettitte comes out of retirement to sign with the Yankees? Don’t you hate it when that happens.

    Jack Curry has the news, tweeting that Pettitte has signed a $2.5-million minor league deal. I think stunning is a solid word to use right now.
  31. dblplay1212 New Member

    Wtf? Where does he fit in the staff?

    Cashman: “Andy Pettitte’s worth complicating things for”

    Today’s stunning Andy Pettitte signing began coming together back in December when Pettitte heard Brian Cashman give a radio interview during which Cashman said Pettitte could be a great pitcher again if he came back this season. To Cashman’s surprise, Pettitte called him in late December to say he might be interested in doing just that.
    “It wasn’t really helpful to me because I said, ‘What are you telling me?’” Cashman said. “He goes, ‘I don’t know what I’m telling you. It’s just something I’m thinking about.’ I kind of forced it a little bit, or tried to.”
    To force it, Cashman offered a contract worth $10-12 million. He also told Pettitte he was in negotiations to trade for Michael Pineda and sign Hiroki Kuroda, and if those deals went through, the available money and roster spots would be gone. Pettitte couldn’t commit, and told Cashman he would need six weeks to workout and decide whether he wanted to play.
    “We kinda agreed that something may not happen,” Pettitte said. “So (I wanted to) keep working out, see if you can get the juices flowing.”
    At that point, Pettitte to the Yankees was still a longshot. Step-by-step, though, the whole thing came together.
    Mid-January: The Yankees acquire Pineda and Kuroda
    PETTITTE: “When they signed those guys, (Cashman) called me and said you can shut it down. The money (the Yankees) were going to use is gone. And the spot in the rotation, we have 7 starters now – because at that time we had AJ – and they said, ‘Go ahead and shut it down.’ And I said, ‘Ok.’ And after about 3-4 days, I looked at my wife, and I said, ‘Babe, I was loving working out.’ I couldn’t commit to them, but I was loving working out. So she said keep working out. So I kept working out.”
    CASHMAN: “We wound up doing deals. I called him and just said, ‘By the way, you’ve seen what we’ve done.’ He goes, ‘I get it, no worries, I’m going to shut it down. I understand. Appreciate the honesty.’ That was it. So we have now two additional pitchers. We’re excited about it. … He said he shut it down. He’ll tell you, I’m not sure if it was a week to 10 days. It was no more than 10 days, at least a week that he said he shut it down. But unbeknownst to me, he got it going again.”
    Late February: Pettitte comes to camp as a guest instructor
    PETTITTE: “The reason I couldn’t commit to the Yankees earlier was because I didn’t have time to get on the mound and do the stuff I needed to do to tell them whether or not I could get there. During my work right now, my bullpen work, I can feel it all coming back, as far as the mental side of it. … I didn’t know if I would tell them or not (about the workouts). I told Hal and Cash, ‘Y’all told me to quit working out, but I’ve still been working out, and I’ve still been throwing, and I think I would love to play, man.’ They were like, ‘Oh my goodness. How are we going to work this out?’”
    CASHMAN: “The day he left, he met with me. If he had a flight that afternoon he grabbed me and shut the door (in Girardi’s office) and said, ‘I’ve got to tell you something.’ … We know he can pitch in New York. He’s left-handed, and I know he’s obviously certainly long in tooth, but he’s also done the transition from power pitcher to some degree from the left side to tremendous pitchability. All that equipment is still there, or should still be there. Let’s go see. Why not?”
    Tuesday morning: Pettitte threw a top-secret, early-morning bullpen in Tampa
    CASHMAN: “He came down here before the Red Sox night game. He showed up here at 7:30 a.m. in front of myself, Larry (Rothschild), Joe (Girardi) and I brought Gene Michael over and we watched him do a bullpen. Not for a tryout purpose, but in a lot of discussions it was like, ‘Well, how far are you away?’ He said he’d been working out since January. He said he’d been throwing batting practice to his kids. He’d done at least six bullpens. At the same time, he wasn’t in a spring training camp type workout for pitchers. It was one of those things where I think mentally, he thinks he’s farther ahead than he is and privately we think he might be farther away than he thinks he is, so he did a bullpen here. Guys can work out all winter, but you get under the sun, you get a feel for it this way. That gave us and him a little bit more information.”
    GIRARDI: “It was pretty good. He did his regular warmup, which I think is 34 pitches. Then he probably threw to (the equivalent of) three hitters, 15 pitches or so. He had all of his pitches. He threw them all. He threw them all pretty well. He got a little tired at the end but that’s to be expected I think. That’s somewhat of a long bullpen. We were pleased, and I can’t believe no one ever said anything.”
    PETTITTE: “Once I stood on that mound, the other morning, it was like I’d never left. Even though it was Tuesday morning, and Cashman was standing there with Gene Michael and Joe, and Larry, and it was just like I had never left to tell you the truth. It was really weird.”
    This morning: Agreed to $2.5-million deal during call with Cashman, Randy Levine and Hal Steinbrenner
    CASHMAN: “It’s not easy when you make an offer of anywhere from 10, 11, 12 million in the wintertime in late December, to it’s now March whatever, and this is the best we can do. … He’s worth more than this, clearly, if he’s right. You know that. But we’re at the stage of the game now — just like anybody who signs in January, February, March, some of these free agents that are still sitting out there — they’re not going to get what they think they’re worth. It’s now about getting a job and taking what they can get.”
    GIRARDI: “Until it was done I didn’t necessarily think (it would happen). I hadn’t known about it for very long, so I thought maybe when he threw his bullpen it would be a reality, and then it didn’t happen the next day or that day, so then I thought, well maybe it’s not going to happen. Really, until today I didn’t believe it was going to be a reality.”
    PETTITTE: “Swish just called me and was screaming on the phone. I’ve talked to the guys, I’ve texted with pretty much all of them, before we released this, because I wanted to them to know. … Mo doesn’t know for sure. Mo’s not carrying a cell phone around anymore, he told me. He probably found out today. I did talk to Jeet. They’re excited, they’re fired up. I think the first text message I got when it came out was from Jorge. He’s fired up, and just saying congrats, and just wishing me the best.”
    Next Tuesday: Pettitte is scheduled to arrive in Tampa to join the team
    PETTITTE: “I’m sure I’ll be in touch with Larry, the pitching coach, then it’ll just be me and him getting this figured out, and figuring out exactly how slow they need to take me. I’m throwing bullpens where I’m throwing 60 or so pitches in a bullpen, so that’s built up pretty good right there, but I may have to back off from that to just start getting my leg stuff, covering bases, things like that. I haven’t done any of that on a daily basis.”
    GIRARDI: “Obviously the next step is to get him prepared to pitch. He’s got to go through a spring training, basically. I can’t tell you exactly when he’ll be ready. You’ve got to make sure his legs are healthy and in shape, not healthy but in shape to take on what it takes to be a starting pitcher. He knows. He’s done it so many times, but we’ve got to make sure his legs are underneath him.”
    CASHMAN: “He hasn’t thrown in a game since October 2010. We’re going to make sure we do the right thing, not cut a corner and rush and put him in a position where this is a waste of time and he’s not going to be in a position to stay healthy and be healthy and not be effective. He’s got to go through and get ready. … Does it complicate things? Yeah it does. But Andy Pettitte’s worth complicating things for.”

    Shit is just crazy man, so out of left field.
  35. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Great news, he can be another reliable arm in the staff, as long as we don't have to heavily rely on him

    In other news I moved from Florida to SW Connecticut so now I can go to games :smug:
  36. Yanks711 TMB's Hoosier

    What town?? Got an aunt and uncle in SW Connecticut.

  38. Rasheed Wallace Ball Don't Lie

    How do you guys think the staff is going to shake out?
  39. dblplay1212 New Member

    I honestly have no idea. I'd be shocked if it was CC, Kuroda, Pineda, and Nova in the 1st 4 slots. As for #5, not the slightest of clues. Pettitte won't be ready until May so it's between Garcia and Hughes. They'll probably give it to Hughes bc they desperately want him to be a solid starter and then make the move to Pettitte or Garcia if he bombs.
  40. Yanks711 TMB's Hoosier

    Nice, they live in Farmington. Fairly close I think.
  41. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Might be an hour or so away. I'm excited to be up here, at least for the next few years.
  42. James the Saint WE SEC NOW

    You living downtown? I'm from the Danbury-ish area, most likely will be starting my career in Stamford early next year. It's so damn easy to get to games, access to NYC is one of the major reasons I'm not too disappointed to likely end up there.
  43. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Yep I ended up with a place in downtown Stamford, and I'm pretty happy with the area so far.
  44. IrishLAX2 Nation's Top Footballers

    Where downtown? My buddy (lurker on here) lives near the Ritz and my brother and I are gonna start looking for places over there. My family has a boat at the marina where the Crab Shell is (if you haven't heard about it, you will...summer bar on the water).

    But yea, Yankee Stadium is real easy to get to from Stamford. Driving isn't bad or you can just Metro North it to 125th st and then connect back up to Yankee Stadium from there.
  45. dblplay1212 New Member

    Y'all making me jelly.
  46. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Just off of Summer Street near the Target.
  47. IrishLAX2 Nation's Top Footballers

    That's like two blocks from my buddy. Small world
  48. dblplay1212 New Member

    After a rocky 1st, Pineda came back to K 5 in the 2nd and 3rd tonight. Velocity up to 92-93, touching 94.
  49. Rasheed Wallace Ball Don't Lie

    AL MVP odds:

    Pujols 11/2
    A Gonzalez 15/2
    Cabrera 15/2
    Bautista 12/1, Fielder 12/1
    Cano 12/1
    Longoria 15/1

    Other Yankees--
    Tex 18/1
    A-Rod 25/1
    CC 40/1
    Grandy 50/1
    Jeter 50/1

    Might put some money on Cano when I go out to Vegas and how do Jeter and Grandy have the same odds?
  50. dblplay1212 New Member

    Damn, those are some REALLY good odds on Grandy. Wow. The must think last year was a fluke. If I were putting down money, that's where I'd put it.
