Postgame notes: “It was just squishy”

iFrame Removed

Yu Darvish

Getting the tarp on the field tonight was a near total failure. The rain came suddenly, it was a downpour within seconds, the wind was blowing, and the grounds crew literally couldn’t get the tarp out of left field. I wasn’t even paying much attention to them at first, so I’m not entirely sure what started the whole mess, but it was very quickly obvious that the tarp was covered with too much rain to drag onto the infield. It took a full 14 minutes — with various other stadium workers helping — to finally get the infield covered.

And it was all over at that point.

The rain stopped and there was a lengthy, rather impressive effort to get the field playable again. Just looking at it, the infield seemed perfectly fine. But that water didn’t disappear beneath all of that fresh dirt.

“Even if there was no rain, it’s not going to just magically going to dry up,” crew chief Dale Scott said. “It wasn’t the surface, it was underneath. From what you saw, not getting that tarp on, to what it looked like once they fixed it up, it looked beautiful. But frankly, the surface looked great, underneath though it was just squishy. And it was too soft for turns and baselines.”

Although the Yankees clearly had the most to gain from a called game, Scott said that both managers agreed that the surface was far too dangerous. Joe Girardi said that Ron Washington called the infield, “a hamstring just waiting to be pulled.”

And these two teams know a thing or two about pulled hamstrings this year.

“We made a joke that you could put the two teams together with their DL and you could form a pretty good team,” Girardi said. “Neither one of us can really afford anyone else to go on the DL because of conditions that players shouldn’t be on.”

So the Yankees got a win against one of the best pitchers in baseball. Call it karma for what happened just before the break.

“We kind of were owed this one after what happened in Baltimore, I think,” Brett Gardner said. “It’s good. We’ll take a win any way we get can get it.”

David Phelps• Look back at the last out of the fifth inning, when David Phelps came off the mound screaming and pumping his fist. That strikeout stranded the tying run at third base. Turns out to be the biggest out of the night. “I knew I had a base open,” Phelps said. “Cervy kind of told me, ‘Let’s make him swing at some stuff.’ I was able to make a couple of pitches, and he swung at a ball out of the zone. It’s a big moment. We were up 2-1 against Darvish, who doesn’t give up two runs very often. It was just one of those times when you really want to keep the lead for them.”

• Phelps is credited with a complete game for going five innings with one run on five hits, no walks and three strikeouts. That’s the first complete game of his career. Kind of a cheap way to get it, but he went head-to-head with Darvish and got a win. That’s something. Phelps is now unbeaten in his past eight starts going 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA. He has a 2.51 ERA in his past eight starts at Yankee Stadium.

• What’s made Phelps so consistent? Basically, he said being consistent starts with consistency. “It’s nice being on every five days,” he said. “I’ve been able to get on a routine and just getting comfortable with going out there every fifth day. It’s what I’ve done my whole career being a starter, and it’s nice being able to get back into that role.”

• Did Phelps pitch that fifth inning as if it were the ninth, knowing the rain was on its way? “I had no idea there was weather coming in,” he said. “When I got done, I heard one of our bat boys tell one of our coaches that they said they were calling for rain in five or 10 minutes. I looked at the forecast before the game, it said 40 to 50 percent, so I didn’t think we were seeing anything like that.”

• Phelps was not going back to the mound, by the way. Darvish was going, despite the delay of one hour and 49 minutes. Crazy. If Darvish hadn’t actually gone to the mound to throw some warm-up pitches, I wouldn’t have believed he was actually planning to stay in the game.

Bret Gardner• Gardner’s game-winning home run was his 100th hit of the season. His 10 homers this season are a career-high, and the Yankees are now 26-7 in games when Gardner goes deep in his career. “Just being a little more aggressive,” Gardner said. “Trying to continue to work on my swing with K-Long, being more aggressive at the plate, and take my A swing.”

• Two doubles for Francisco Cervelli. He’s hit safely in seven of his last eight starts, batting .379 in those games. “I just try to see the ball and hit it,” Cervelli said. “That’s it. I’m not worried about results because, like you said, I don’t have that many games. I cannot think too much. I just go there and try to hit the ball.”

• Another Yankees hit for Chase Headley who’s actually hit safely in 13 of his past 15 games.

• No hit for Brian McCann, who went 0-for-2 and snapped his streak of reaching base safely in 17 games.

• Derek Jeter played in his 1,600th Yankees victory. According to Elias, Jeter has the highest personal winning percentage (.595) among active players who have played at least 1,000 games.

• No doubt that this rain out really helped the Yankees depleted bullpen. One night after using every single reliever, the Yankees didn’t have to use a single one tonight. Even so, I wonder if they’ll keep Chris Leroux another day before bringing up another position player.

• Apparently Ron Washington said he did not believe the grounds crew’s tarp trouble was intentional. But, when asked if the idea crossed his mind, Washington said, “no comment.” Have to imagine the idea of an intentional tarp mistake at least crossed the mind of everyone watching this one, but I just can’t imagine it being the case. “The grounds crew did everything they could,” Girardi said. “They physically did everything they could and Mother Nature took over.”

• CC Sabathia’s surgery went as expected today. “I guess his surgery went well,” Girardi said. “I don’t know if we’ll see him. Obviously he’s not allowed to travel for a few days, so we’ll probably see him when we get back from the road trip.”

• Final word goes to Gardner about sneaking a win against a guy like Darvish: “He’s a guy who’s tough to get things going on, but we were able to get just enough of the game in before it started raining. The field was in pretty bad shape, so I’m glad we didn’t go back out there.”

2014 Post-Draft Top 30 Prospects

By in Minors. Tags: · Comments (43) ·

“What do you mean I’m not a prospect anymore?” “You’re a big leaguer now.” (Elsa/Getty)

The draft signing deadline was last Friday, and the Yankees were able to sign everyone they were expected to sign. There were no surprises, good or bad. Because they didn’t have a first round pick (or a supplemental round pick), this wasn’t the most exciting draft for the Yankees, who went heavy on college pitching and took a reliever with their top selection.

The Yankees did, however, add an amazing amount of talent to the farm system through international free agency earlier this month. My unofficial tally puts the spending spree at approximately $28.5M total between bonuses and penalties, though I’m sure there have been several deals that were not reported. Most of those players signed 2015 contracts and are not technically Yankees yet, so they are not included in this snapshot of the farm system. I usually wait until international signees show up in the U.S. to rank them anyway.

Two players — righties Dellin Betances and Chase Whitley — have graduated to the big leagues since the pre-draft list was posted late-May. I’ve been doing these for eight years and this is the very first RAB prospect list without Betances. I’m kinda sad. Another prospect, righty Rafael DePaula, was traded away just this week. Those three departures plus the draft and some stateside debuts have led to a healthy amount of turnover since the last list in May.

I feel like it’s clear who the top two prospects are (in whatever order), clear who the next seven prospects are (again, whatever order), and then a total mess after that with no obvious order. As always, this list is my personal opinion and based on how I value things like tools and probability and performance and all that. You’re welcome to disagree with the rankings. I’m sure you will. Rankings don’t mean anything anyway. They’re just fun to look at it. Anyway, the ages listed are as of today, and the levels listed are the player’s current level. The fun starts after the jump.

John Eliot came to Massachusetts in 1631 and become pastor of the church in Roxbury. For 58 years he pastored the congregation and maintained an energetic concerned Christian witness to the surrounding Indians as well. Eliot was not interested in a mere outward change of the Indians religious beliefs, emphasized repentance and belief in Jesus Christ as Savior. Having learned Algonquian, Eliot began teaching Christian truths to the Indians in their own language. He described the glorious power, goodness, and greatness of God as seen in His creation. By presenting the Ten Commandments to the Indians, Eliot pointed out what God required of them and the punishment which would come from breaking His holy law. All this was preparatory to the comforting words that "God had sent Jesus Christ to die for their sins."

McCarthy: “Can’t do anything more than what you can do”

iFrame Removed

Brandon McCarthy

The day Masahiro Tanaka went for an MRI on his elbow, Brandon McCarthy made his first start with the Yankees. He pitched into the seventh inning, allowed one earned run and the Yankees got a win. Since then, Tanaka’s been shutdown with a torn elbow ligament, and McCarthy has continued to pitch well.

Which means, there’s no problem at all! McCarthy will just fill Tanaka’s shoes, and the Yankees rotation will be fine.

“I hope (that)’s not a thought,” McCarthy said. “It’s not a thought for me because I’ve done things like that in the past where you realize it’s the wrong mindset. You’re trying to control something that’s out of your control. I don’t care who it is, for any of us, you just want to throw as well as you can and give the team a chance. If that replaces a really good pitcher or makes up for a bunch of injuries, then great. You can’t do anything more than what you can do, and trying to control that is a quick way to go backwards, I think.”

Maybe Brian Cashman will pull off some sort of massive trade in the next week before the trade deadline, but asking prices seem awfully high, and the Yankees might have to keep going the route of incremental upgrades. David Huff is better than Alfredo Aceves. McCarthy is better than Vidal Nuno. Chase Headley is better than Yangervis Solarte. Chris Capuano is better than whoever the next long reliever/spot starter might have been. That’s the basic idea of the Yankees moves so far.

And so far, the moves seem to have helped. McCarthy and Headley — the headliners of the new additions — have been particularly helpful in their first three games with the Yankees.

“Most important are the three wins,” Headley said. “I feel pretty comfortable. It’s a little bit of a learning experience not knowing any of the pitchers really. But, for the most part, swings have felt good. I just missed a couple balls and squared some up too. I’m pretty happy with where I’m at.”

And the Yankees have to be happy with that as well. There’s no true Tanaka replacement on the market — guys like that just aren’t available, especially if you assume the Rays aren’t trading David Price within the division — so the Yankees are going to need good swings from Headley and chances to win from McCarthy. That’s all they could ask for, and they’ve gotten both so far.

“It’s a nice feeling,” McCarthy said. “It’s the opposite of how I felt earlier this year, where I was a burden on my team. … To come here and feel good about myself again, to contribute to a playoff race, it’s a good feeling.”
