Madison Bumgarner hit a grand slam last night.

Pitcher dingers own. Pitcher grand slams own more than almost anything else in baseball (especially when said pitcher goes like 15 rows deep to left-center at fucking AT&T).
I'm going to have to go look this up. Spent so much of yesterday out dealing with a car issue that I had to skip the games and Sportscenter as well. Looks like I picked a bad day to do that.

Re: 2014 MLB Season: How Many Pitchers Will Die For Our Sins?

Justin Upton is having his usual MVP April. Maybe he can try and give us a whole season of this for a change. That being said Freddie Freeman is off to a great start on earning his mega contract while Aaron Harang is turning out to be a great placeholder while we wait for Minor and Floyd. I'm a little curious as to why the Braves acquired Ryan Doumit. That leaves the Braves carrying three catchers and only one reserve outfielder (Jordan Schafer).

It also helps when the Nationals somehow turn into the Bad News Bears when they play Atlanta.

Solarte playing hurt, Cervelli hurt, Jeter already sitting, Roberts hurt, Teixeira on the DL.

It's like Christmas in April.

I'm too lazy to go back and find them, but consider the posts reposted where everyone pointed out that old, injured players were likely to get injured, and Yanks vehemently denied it and said they'd all be fine and back to career numbers.

And you forgot McCann, who just got xrays on his hand. And Robertson on the DL. On the plus side, Roberts has already been upright longer than expected. Batting .129 with no power, but upright.

Edit: of course, when I googled to check his numbers, first result was that he was getting an MRI for a sore back, so...

Yanks dnied any reason that Tex shouldn't have a healthy season. Yanks also said that Ells' injuries were more fluck and habitual.

Cervelli is old?

Moore is now getting TJ surgury... it's not just "the old" that get banged up. Every team deals with it every year, but any time the Yankees get a zit it will be all over the news.

It was interesting seeing Beltran play 1st base though... even funnyier hearing him talk about it.

Tex was talking about his sore (repaired) wrist before things even started, how it'd never be back to normal, etc. Not a great omen, even though it's his hammy that went first.

Ellsbury, we'll see. Really always been impact injuries vs. soft tissue, so can't really blame him. It's more the crazy contract for a guy with out outlier year rather than an injury risk. Definitely doesn't fight through them when they DO happen, though. For 15M/year, would have been happy enough with him, at 22M and for 7 years, tough to swallow. Feels like the 20M+ contracts should be for the real 5-tool guys that can hit 20+ HRs in addition to the rest, otherwise it's a Crawford contract, and that didn't pan out well for the Sox (and now the Dodgers).

Roberts was completely expected, anyone that saw 2005 Brian Roberts playing for the Yankees was on crack. Old, hurt, and hadn't played a full season since like 2009.

And yeah, it's not JUST age, injuries happen whenever. It's just that old players don't bounce back, heal slower, and get hurt more.

Biggest knock is that there is ZERO depth on that team. With the very first injury, your newly signed RF (for 15M/year) is playing out of position at 1B. Never even heard of the guys manning SS, and we knew 3B was a black hole before we started, right?

Aside from the pen, pitching has been ok so far, CC's a big question mark still, though.

Tough to just hand-wave past this, as a certain amount HAD to be expected, and there's just NO ONE on the bench or in the minors to plug the holes. So when the expected happens, it's a tough spot.

So, we were yankees haters for pointing it out in the offseason, and by tax day, we're already proven right. And we haven't even gotten into the 'real' injuries yet, still dipping a toe in the 'sore back', 'tight hammy', and 'need a breather' days...

Re: 2014 MLB Season: How Many Pitchers Will Die For Our Sins?

From 2009-2012 I had to hear about how the Phillies fans were the best in the world and heard constant mocking about how Braves fans couldn't fill a stadium. It was nice to see a half empty stadium in Philly when Uggla hit his game winning grand slam. Fair weather fans get on my nerves.

Basically, the only time I'm going to feel sorry for Yankees injuries is if another one of them flies into a building.

...and those folks seem to be doing pretty well. If I learned anything last year is that "has-beens" and no-name rookies can do OK. Hell, we won 85 games in the AL East last year with bandaids and chewing gum, without Pineda and Tanaka...

3rd base wasn't all a "black hole"... Kelly Johnson is no slouch... not a A-Roid in his prime, but he'll do.

Aside from the pen, pitching has been ok so far, CC's a big question mark still, though.
The pen did more than OK against the defending world champions.

And like I've said, CC reinventing himself will take some time... I watched the whole game on Friday, he really pitched well aside from a couple pitches that weren't missed by the batters.

Tough to just hand-wave past this, as a certain amount HAD to be expected, and there's just NO ONE on the bench or in the minors to plug the holes. So when the expected happens, it's a tough spot.
No one said a "certain amount" wasn't expected, but did you expect Robertson to go down? I just hope Jeter isn't being rested or worse when I go to the Bronz to see my Bombers play the Reds in July.

YES, I'M GOING TO THE PALACE!!!

So, we were yankees haters for pointing it out in the offseason, and by tax day, we're already proven right. And we haven't even gotten into the 'real' injuries yet, still dipping a toe in the 'sore back', 'tight hammy', and 'need a breather' days...
Probably makes you feel good, predicting the obvious and all.

It will be fun when this infield with no range, playing on crutches makes the play-offs.

Everytime I hear someone mention money while talking about the Yankees I just shake my head... they could spend 400M on a team...

Guess the Dodgers are the "evil empire" now, eh?

I loved that lady with the frizzy hair, the expressions on her face.


In other news, tonight's game is PPD.
