Derek Jeter Day

with 20 comments

Let’s hope Derek Jeter shows up  today  at Mike Francesa Day at the Stadium, because 10 minutes into  Franny’s Monday  monologue it’ll somehow sound like the day was   about FranFest and not Jeter

Thanks to  noogsie for bird-dogging the funhouse link, and Big D for scooping the Sweeney / WFAN spots…

Judge will  go  to  da mynahs 

Dats Not Da way  to  hit Homa’s

WFAN Saturday Audio

Classic Francesa, the WFAN stuff is entertaining

The NY Post has a whole page on Jeter 

Actually Jeter intel  has gone viral, it’s everywhere so Bob’s your Uncle

Mushnick on the money grab AKA Derek Jeter night…

All I can say Mush, don’t buy  a ticket, or a collectible. Nobody has a gun to  your head… That  said, it’s good to read what  a slippery slope going to  the Mall on Rivera Avenue really is, nothing wrong with  buyer beware intel..

Yeah-No Chance

 Minor League Icon Chance Adams was bumped up  to SWB, so  that’s great news.. Adams isn’t on the 40 man, and “let’s be honest” Cashman  would rather turn down sexual favors from soccer mom Kim Brennan  then put a prospect on the 40 man roster so Adams getting to  the Bronx is a long shot..

No Chance  has blown through the AA line-ups so I guess  it’s a natural progression..Per Hennigen and 2 Chins, Brady Lail  was sent to AA , and Adams will  take his bunk and the keys to  the 85 Cervelli Oldsmobile at SWB..

At first  I thought there might be a red flag flying over  the Sabathia slot, and just in case CC comes up with a “tricky” injury, Green, Cessa, or Mitchell would be moving to the 25 man, and Adams replaces one of those guys..

That might all  happen but Soup Bone Sabathia will  have to continue to rack up Sonny in the Toll Booth points, and if this offense is as prestigious as their billing, they’ll have enough bodyguards around CC to make him the Teflon Soup Bone….

Also in that link are rapid hits of Minor league games

We’ll  cut out the middleman and go  to  the SWB whole 9

Looks like the boys had a fight at  the bat  rack with  12 runs and 17 hits for SWB

Choi Choi I’m the Boy is absolutely tearing it up, Frazier has picked it up but he’s  being carried by a pretty good line-up getting results

Nick Green one of the prospects acquired in the Beltran  trade after a brutal  start,  he’s  now allowed eight runs in 31.1 innings in five starts since..

RHP Domingo Acevedo: 7 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 Balk, 4/5 GB/FB — 75 of 101 pitches were strikes (74%), plus he picked three runners off first (three!) … the 4.57 ERA is unsightly, but the 52/9 K/BB in 41.1 innings is very Pineda-ish?

    • Thanks Big D, he’s been bad the last 2 outings, Girardi said there was nothing wrong, of course he’s on the DL, we should have known when Psycho said nothing was wrong his friggin arm was almost ready to fall off

  5. 10 day DL for
    DB better step
    Andrew Miller is a lifetime ago now.


    May 14, 2017 at 12:10 pm

  6. Kuty saying it’s 2 weeks

    Aroldis Chapman shut down two weeks, probably not back for a month. First told #Yankees of pain Friday. All via Cashman.

    OK Green up Betances to close, now we see why Adams was promoted, or maybe not the reason but why not…..
    green probably falls into Warren’s spot Clippard the 8 hole Betances Levine’s punching bag the closer

    We’ll see if Betances was wasted last yr when they wanted him to close or if maybe closing ain’t for him… My guess he was wasted and will pitch decently

  9. Shane Hennigan‏ @RailRiders

    Chad Green was SWB’s scheduled starter today.

    Chance Adams hasn’t pitched since Monday. Still too bad he’s not debuting at PNC Field.


    May 14, 2017 at 12:47 pm

  10. also Ref is up as the 26th man


    May 14, 2017 at 1:24 pm

  11. Choi on the DL


    May 14, 2017 at 1:24 pm

  12. Adams at 42 pitches with 2 out in the 2nd inning, that’s his bug-a-boo too many pitches, too many walks when he pitches from behind in the count tough for him to escape innings economically

    48 pitches two innings bases loaded in the first he wiggled out of it, behind in the count on a lot of batters in the 2nd but he escapes again

    Wonder if he has the same problem as a reliever? Seems his slider is his best pitch, so FB command to get ahead might be a problem….. At least he’s at AAA….

  13. Formula Joe better have a good reason why he yanked Green, he’s stretched out, double header, kid’s in a groove, binder must have mentioned turning the line-up over and Green turns into a pumpkin

    Hand Bauer would have beaten Girardi to a pulp if he pulled that school boy Bull Shit back in the day…


    May 14, 2017 at 4:33 pm

  14. Chance Adams 5 innings, 2 hits, no runs, 6 K’s

    Damn they almost made before Devenski comes in, be nice to steal one of these games, the Astros are a tick better at this point… Severino might be hurt he was pretty bad, almost like he didn’t want to pitch today

    still can’t believe Girardi yanked a pitcher in control who is stretched out


    May 14, 2017 at 4:50 pm

  15. If there’s a bigger chump then Tanaka you have to find them… Talk about a dude who couldn’t rise to the occasion it’s Nibbles.. 45K going crazy and this clueless dolt hangs a 6 spot… Matsui must be ashamed

    This isn’t the Astros as much as it’s BP from Nibbles…..


    May 14, 2017 at 7:56 pm

  16. Can you imagine paying to get in to see Nibbles trash the game
    He got boo’d off the mound

    He can opt out tomorrow if he wants
    What’s up with the two guys that started these games Astros took their lunch money
