Steinbrenner says the “work starts now”


The Yankees today released a statement from Hal Steinbrenner.


I’d like to thank our great fans for their support throughout the  entire 2011 season.  We shared a number of memorable moments, including  Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera’s historic achievements, while earning  the right to play in the postseason for the sixteenth time in the last  seventeen years.


I personally share in our fans’ disappointment that this season  has ended without a championship. That is, and always will be, our  singular goal every season. I assure you that this disappointment will  strengthen our resolve to field a team in 2012 that can bring a  twenty-eighth championship to the Bronx. That work starts now.


We played a very talented team in the Detroit Tigers and they  deserve to play in the American League Championship Series.  I  congratulate Mike Ilitch, Dave Dombrowski, Jim Leyland and the entire  Tigers organization.  Their team has given the city of Detroit something  to be very proud of.


A few other notes from today.


• Joel Sherman reported that Eric Chavez is “leaning heavily” toward retiring after  this injury shortened season. If the Yankees want to give Alex  Rodriguez regular DH at-bats next season, they might need another  Chavez-type to play the corners, or they could trust Eduardo Nunez with a  more regular role.


• A lot of questions in today’s chat about Yu Darvish, who is  certainly the biggest name on the international free agent market. Bob  Nightengale reports that “rival teams are predicting” the Rangers will be the team to land Darvish. The Yankees would have to be convinced Darvish wouldn’t be another Kei Igawa, and by all accounts, he’s not.


• TBS announced that last night’s Game 5 drew 9.72 million viewers  and was the most watched LDS game in cable television history. It was  the most watched LDS game on television — network or cable — since the  2005 Game 5 between the Yankees and Angels.


• Baseball America’s latest minor leagues transactions say that Gustavo Molina has elected free agency. That was inevitable. Also inevitable: The Yankees finding a veteran catcher just like him to play a similar role next season.


 
Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Even with Lee.... Phillies loss their battle with the Cardinals.  With 4 "Aces" Phillies are done for the season.  Talking heads got it all wrong...in a short series anything can happen.  The best team doesn't necessary make it to the final dance. 


With that said..Fire Manual !!!! Trade Howard, Utley and Victorino for choking ASAP!!!!!!!

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Hi lauren.


Isn't the first step to re-sign Cashman ... did you hear anything about that?

1956 World Series Game 5: Don Larsen's Perect Game


 


October 8, 1956-  At  Yankee Stadium, New York Yankees starter Don Larsen pitched the  only  perfect game in World Series history for a 2-0 triumph over the  Brooklyn  Dodgers. Sal “The Barber” Maglie, the opposing pitcher, gave  up only five-Yankees hits. Mickey Mantle hits his third Home Run of the  1956 World Series.  He makes a great defensive catch in centerfield to  save Larsen's Perfect  Game.

Were there missed deadline opportunities?


On the night the Yankees were eliminated, they were beaten by a starting pitcher who easily could have been pitching for them.


Doug Fister was traded at the deadline. He came to Detroit with  reliever David Pauley for a package of four young players. He came with a  miserable 3-12 record, but he also came with a 3.33 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP  and a contract that had not yet reached arbitration. With the Tigers,  Fister was a difference maker, going 8-1 with a 1.79 ERA.


Should he have been with the Yankees?


It’s easy to look back and say, yes. Fister is still just 27 years  old, and although he’s not an overpowering pitcher, he doesn’t walk many  guys and he’s been a reliable starter for two and a half seasons now.


It’s also easy to look back and remember what the Yankees were on  July 31. They were a team with too many middle-of-the-rotation starters  as it was. They needed a clear upgrade, and although Fister looks like  that today, back in July he was a guy with a 4.40 ERA on the road and a  3.42 at spacious Safeco Field. He was a nice pitcher, but not one who  was clearly better than Ivan Nova or Freddy Garcia or the freshly  healthy Phil Hughes or the still-pitching-well Bartolo Colon.


Ubaldo Jimenez looked like a real upgrade, but he went to Cleveland  and pitched to a 5.10 ERA in the last two months. His worst starts were  against — who else? — the Detroit Tigers. Edwin Jackson was a nice  addition for the Cardinals, but he fits the Fister profile as a  not-a-sure-thing addition for the Yankees. Hunter Pence helped balance  the Phillies lineup, but the Yankees had no pressing need in the  outfield. Francisco Rodriguez helped the Brewers advance, but the  Yankees bullpen was a strength, not a weakness.


It’s easy to look back at Fister as a missed opportunity, but it’s  also easy to look back at the Yankees situation in late July and believe  Cashman when he says, “I don’t see there was any missed opportunity I  could have done differently.”

Talks between Yanks, Cashman going well


By

Via Buster Olney,  talks between the Yankees and Brian Cashman about a new contract are  going smoothly, and the two sides could have a deal done as soon as next  week. Both sides have expressed interest in a reunion in recent weeks, so news that talks are going well isn’t  all that surprising. I wonder if Cashman will push for a little more  control given how bad the ownership-driven Alex Rodriguez and Rafael Soriano contracts look, but I suspect we’ll never know.

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.
