Default The 2010 NY baseball thread

For any Yankee or Met talk this season

Last night, Marte nearly cost the Yankees the game

Mets are hot.

Anyone jump in with comments on current / recent games or the season

Yankees are looking like they are solid... but of course with their age comes questions. One of these days Rivera is just going to lose his cutter. I think. Or maybe not?

I mean a guy lives on basically one pitch, 80% of the time, and goes as long as he has?

as to the Mets, what can I say? They've pulled lightning out of a bottle with Dickie and that other kid pitcher of theirs.

I was watching the YES network this evening, and since it's an off day for the Yankees, YES was playing a "classic", one of the dodger-yankees world series games.

One glaring difference in the game then, and now, is the pace of the game!

Geesh, if I didn't hear the announcers and realize this was "real time" I would have sworn they had the playback set in Fastforward.

The difference between those games and the stupid, long, games of today is striking.

Where on almost every pitch, a batter is stepping out, a pitcher is walking off the mound, or a catcher is running out to "confer" on signs.

Just play the game, dabnabit!

Met 2 out of 3 from the M&M boys.

Yanks 2 out of 3 from their old manager, A-roid shakes Joe's hand after "the book" and Joe T gets his first win over the Yankees... ever... as a player or manager.

Some interesting highlights this past weekend.

not bad at all, I guess I wasn't paying enough attention:

"Since May 12, Javier Vazquez's ERA is 3.05, down nearly seven runs per game from the 9.78 he posted in his first five starts this season. It's also the best ERA among the Yankees' five starters during that 10-start stretch.

"

This is bullshit, the Rangers are technically "bankrupt." The Yankees could pick up Lee's entire salary and offer the Rangers good prospects plus a cash bonus. Frankly though if the Mets don't acquire Lee then Omar Minaya should be shot.

I wonder if the Phillies are kicking themselves in the butt and head for trading him last year. With Doc Halladay and Lee they wouldn't be 6 games out of first. Lee is 8-3, 2.34 ERA, with a crap team. I watched bits and pieces of the Phillies - Braves game the last two nights, the Phillies are choking and making stupid mistakes.

Rangers, Mariners discussing deal for Lee
By T.R. Sullivan / MLB.com

ARLINGTON -- Trade discussions between the Rangers and the Seattle Mariners appear to be heating up over pitcher Cliff Lee, according to industry sources.

There is nothing imminent, there are plenty of other teams still involved and Lee may not get traded until right before the July 31 Trade Deadline.

But club officials acknowledge that general manager Jon Daniels has been working hard to find a way to acquire the All-Star left-hander who the Rangers believe could be the one difference-maker in their quest for the American League West title.
The Rangers have been actively looking for a front-line starting pitcher, they have made no secret that Lee is their top priority and they have the Minor League prospects to get him here. As far as talent in the farm system, the Rangers openly believe they are in far better position to acquire a major piece before the Trade Deadline than most any other team.

The club is still limited by financial constraints but Daniels admitted last week there is still some flexibility in the budget for the Rangers to do something before the July 31 Trade Deadline. The club has not been involved in the International amateur signing period for Latin American players this month in attempt to hold back final resources for the Trade Deadline.
Daniels declined to discuss trade talks Wednesday night.

There is little doubt that the Rangers have the talent to make the deal. The Mariners are reportedly looking for a big bat for their lineup and the Rangers have both Justin Smoak at the Major League level and Chris Davis at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
The Rangers are also deep in Minor League pitching although indications are they are not interested in talking about Tanner Scheppers or Martin Perez. But Derek Holland and Blake Beavan could be two names that might interest the Mariners.

Sources also said the Mariners need catching help. The Rangers could put Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the deal although he would hardly be the centerpiece of any trade.

There is plenty of talent in the lower levels of the farm system, especially at catcher, although the Mariners are likely to expect some immediate Major League-ready help in any trade for Lee.

Lee is making $8 million this season and the Rangers would pick up only $4 million if a trade were made right now. The Mariners could pick up some of Lee's salary but that would entail the Rangers added more players to the package.

The Rangers are hardly the only team interested in Lee, who is 8-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 13 starts for the Mariners. The Twins, Mets, Yankees, Reds, Rays, Phillies and Tigers are all considered possibilities as well.

The Mariners are expected to command a hefty package in return and are unlikely to jump at any first proposals. Most likely the Mariners are only now beginning to get serious with a number of teams although most Major League officials believe Lee will end up getting traded before the Deadline.

From a talent standpoint, the Rangers believe they are well-positioned to win this competition as long as the financial hurdles do not get in their way.

well Texas is in first place and this would give them an edge to make the playoffs.

the phillies bats have been their big issue, though with baseball all shortcomings contribute (such as 'light out lidge' being no such thing this year)

Lee's contract expires at the end of this season. So anyone who trades for him, gets him for 1/2 a season, as he's made it clear he is definitely going on the market over the winter.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Mariners and the Yankees are close to a deal for Lee. The Yankees give up catching prospect Jesus Montero.

Lee is supposed to pitch tonight against the Yankees. Wouldn't it be outrageous if the deal goes through this afternoon that Lee pitches AGAINST the Mariners?

The Yankees will probably re-sign Lee at the end of the season if he does well.
