  1. here is another karma of the universe having to do with Jeter

    willie mays has 3283 hits and 523 doubles

    jeter has 3282 hits and 522 doubles

    once again i find something weird by accident

    if jeter’s next hit is a double,……. he ties willie mays in hits AND IN doubles

    523 doubles is in 40th place

  2. NUNEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Joe is slow…but he eventually gets it.

  4. Now all Girardi has to do is stop playing Jones and then were all good.

  5. wow O’s had bases loaded in bottom 13th with 0 out and couldn’t score a run!!!!

  6. Let’s hope Nunez can do a good job to-night, if he worked on his footwork at SS, even the little time he had, he will help a lot.
    Now if we can get Joe to play a couple of the younger OF prospects, we will be in for a lot of fun.

    • Ken – Nunez has shown off his gun twice tonight.

    • i wish Nunose would have gotten some more time in AAA to try and master a single position. As it stands the chances he airmails a throw or two into the stands behind first are higher then Hughes giving up a HR. hopefully it won’t cost us any runs.

      Would like to see Mesa out there tonight… other than that we don’t have any young OF prospects on the 40 man. well, Zoilo is on it but not with the club at the moment.

  7. Nunez with two hit so far tonight. Hope he gets another shot tomorrow.

  8. Exactly Doug…..well said…..

  9. Even better Doug…With Jeter limping, keep him at DH and use Nunez at SS again.

    • Nunez dun well. ;-) There is my Kenism for the night.

      • Very well done Matt!
        What say we keep Nunez at SS for a day or two, give Jeter some time to heal and rest up a bit. Being as fresh as one can for the play-offs is important.
        Nunez plays SS or DH, other wise, what was the point of having him in AAA…remember one position for him, untill they change their minds again?! :)

        • Nice game for Nunie last night. Swung the bat well and looked solid in the field.
          Wouldn’t mind seeing him out there against the Rays but yes….one position in the IF or DH. Bouncing him around the field does no one (save the opposing team) any good.

          • Jeter should be kept at DH for awhile now going forward to make sure that ankle is healed properly. I agree with Ken let’s keep Nunez at DH for a couple of games.

      • I want to vomit when people say “the manager and GM know better than the fans, that is why they have their jobs”. Like any other profession, baseball has plenty of incompetent people who are in jobs that they either aren’t qualified for or aren’t very good at.
        The kneejerk way that Nunez was demoted earlier this year was truly emblematic of the brutal Cashman/Girardi regime. Nunez should have been playing all year, and would have made a far better replacement in ARod’s absence than those bums we used.
        The fact that he hasn’t been used almost everyday since September 1st is just moronic.
        Only the two buffoons we have running this team would have handled him the way that they have this year.
        Fish’s column about missing the playoffs was right on the mark. I can never root against the Yankees, but have a sort of piece of mind about this season. If we make the playoffs thats great, if they don’t then perhaps management will finally tell these two imbeciles to get lost and we start getting back to the type of team construction that we used to get great in the first place.

        • Nunez was demoted so he could stay at one position and work on his defense.

          He wasn’t sketchy, not bad, he was downright atrocious with the glove. Stone hands, awful footwork and he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn regardless where he was growing the ball from. I stuck up for him a ton last year stating he would be much improved by dropping the idea that he could be a utility guy; tier biggest mistake was not realizig it sooner. He justdoesn have it in him to move around the diamond.

        • With as many games as we may have given up with the non-Chavez end of te platoon, old Nunie would have almost certainly given up just as many with his glove.
          When he takes the field, the fans behind first base come armed with their own catchers masks.

  10. JT – Nunez’s arm is so bad, when he throws to first, Keith Olbermann’s mother turns over in her grave.

  11. JT – you think Nunez’s arm will improve through practice?

    Let’s ask Allen iverson :
