Father Knows Best

Man it got nuts for the Chicago White Sox this week with the Adam LaRoche 

Somebody had to get in Kenny Williams ear about LaRoche taking his kid to  work  everyday, and the President of baseball operations tripped a land mine by telling the Sox first  baseman  to  chill it on the daddy  daycare routine

LaRoche’s teammates are backing the player, LaRoche must  be serious, he quit and is in line to lose $13M….

This type of thing is above my pay scale but I’d let the clubhouse police this matter, if all  25 guys don’t care, the suits should butt the fuck out, unless there is some sort of insurance SNAFU if the kid gets hurt

We’ve heard about  players kids in clubhouses for years but this is the first  time that Daddy daycare scenario  has exploded into a full blown story

No doubt a product of how boring this portion of Spring Training is, and how much content the media is expected to produce..

Yanks beat Pirates 7-2

Only saw the highlights on this one, Big D gave us the update yesterday

Castro hit one over the wall in CF where  the Pirates play, McKechnie Filed in Fla.. The Pitt announcer said he’s never seen anybody go  there, so  that has to be a good sign.. That  was Castro’s 2nd Tater this Spring…

Refsynder hit a HR drove in 3 runs, that  can’t hurt.. Cashman has created a ton of value in guys who  can play other positions so Refsynder dropped anchor at  second base yesterday and Castro  moved to SS

We might see this often vs LHP… I’m glad Refsynder has held his own at 3rd base, he’s getting closer to winning a job, or being a very decent trade chip.. If they  can get some really good young pitching for Refsynder I guess that  would be OK, but I’m hoping this kid can be a really good RHB off the bench while he plays adequate defense at 2nd and 3rd base…

Big D mentioned Tanaka didn’t look all that  good, his line shows that report to be accurate

2 innings, 4 hits, 2 runs,  and I saw Mccutcheon take him  deep  for a HR in a highlight.. Let’s hope he was just getting some work in

Severino on the other hand went 4 inning of scoreless ball, so he’s made a 360  from his bad first outing…Shreve went 1 scoreless

Hopefully this week  the Shuttle Butts start  to  dial it up, the Yanks need to  find at least two maybe three guys who  can work out of the pen

At the moment our wish list  would be Miller, Betances, Shreve, Nova, Mitchell as locks…

the bench  appears to be Hicks, Ackley, Refsynder, and Romine

So there are the two  spots open in the pen from our vantage point

All  this barring any injuries to  the obvious 25 man roster

  2. The upcoming rotation: CC Sabathia (Friday on TV), Michael Pineda (Saturday), and Ivan Nova (Sunday on TV).

    Pretty soon the guys will be going four or five innings. [Hoch]

    Girardi is not yet ready to name Tanaka his Opening Day starter. “My thought process now is I don’t anticipate it being a problem, but let’s just wait,” said the skipper. [Hoch]

    Aaron Hicks was scratched from today’s lineup with a stye. He went to see the eye doctor. I’ve never had a stye, but I know they’re annoying as hell and kinda gross. Hopefully this clears up in a few days. [Hoch]

    Slade Heathcott, meanwhile, did not play today because he missed the bus to Bradenton. Not ideal, Slade. [Anthony Rieber]

  3. Heathcott was supposed to start the game yesterday but missed the team bus,got there late and was benched. Hicks also was scratched due to a stye in his eye. Yanks on YES tonight vs O’s

    • good job by Heathcott missing the bus… He belongs in the music business where we have knuckleheads like that a plenty..

      enjoy that O’s game Big D, wish I could see it… Still like watching who the replacements will be the minute some of these guys get hurt…

    this seems like a good deal for the Indians… imagine the Giants putting Byrd on the bench and he missed his $8M option by 6 plate appearances lol…

    that’s rough… I bet there were some good vibes in that clubhouse

  8. Sal–My friend and I had a beyond great time last night. I told her it was going to be something else, and she was still blown away. Every time I looked over, she had a look of amazement on her face.
    I wish that all my nights out, trying to find fun things to do, could be 25 percent as good as last night.
