Morning Bits: Teixeira, 14 Inning Game, Cashman, Managing Yankees

Good morning everyone! What a wild game yesterday with the Yankees (eventually after 6 hours) winning the ball game 10-9. The Yankees magic number to clinch the AL East is 11, so maybe they can shrink that number today. Hiroki Kuroda is on the mound for the Yankees at 1:05pm today and here…are your morning links.

– The Yankees are playing well enough that they could make it to the play-offs but if the Yankees do make it–will Mark Teixeira be ready to play?

– The Yankees probably could have or should have lost yesterday after Freddy Garcia gave up runs in extras to the Oakland Athletics–but the Yankees played with grit (something they hadn’t had in a while) and beat the A’s 10-9 after 6 hours of nonstop baseball.

– Brian Cashman’s father John Cashman who was elected into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame in 1992 in Goshen, NY and helped Brian Cashman get into baseball business, died yesterday. He was 72 years old.

– Obviously there are more ways than one to win a ball game, but the Yankees like to depend on the home run ball. So I decided to test out how to “manage” the Yankees to a victory without trying to hit home runs–by using video games.

  1. Nice articles Delia. Good work. I added the standings from the AL. Thought it was important as the Yankees are just now 1 game back from Texas. Texas lost there last two games.

  2. it is a little disturbing that cashman has connections to GAMBLING

    RACE TRACKS , SUCK AS AQUEDUCT, THAT DO HARNESS RACING,….WHEN CASHMAN HAS CONNECTIONS, NOW HAS A CASINO IN IT

    HARNESS RACING IS ALSO RUN AT FREEHOLD, THE MEADOWLANDS, AND PROBABLY MONMOUTH PARK,…….. here in nj

    NJ HAS PASSED A LAW TO ALLOWINg SPORTS BETTING AT CASINOS,….. AND PLACEs LIKE TRACKS,…… BUT FEDERAL LAW IS STANDING IN THE WAY

    LISTEN , appearance of improipriety is bad

    we really do not know a lot about cashman,……… how privledged he is, or how connected he is

    butr it is disturbing to find out he is connected to gambling

    didnt baseball suspend willie mays after he took a front officxe job with ballys?

    appearances are everything

  3. B’more remaining games left – 4 with Boston, 4 with Toronto, 3 with Tampa.

  4. Texas remaining games left – 1 with Seattle, 7 with Oakland, 3 with Angels.

  5. Yankees remaining games left – 1 with Oakland, 3 with Twins, 4 Toronto, 3 with Boston

  6. Delia….
    I read your post on using video games, very well done and shows a point some fans don’t see or think is very important, Managing a team is a very tough job. Even when one makes the right move at the right time, if it doesn’t turn out as expected, you are wrong for making the move.
    As I said over there; your last four lines hit the nail on the head…big time.
    Good work.

  7. Shortly after his Hall of Fame election, (1979) Mays took a job at the Park Place Casino (now Bally’s Atlantic City) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. While there, he served as a Special Assistant to the Casino’s President and as a greeter. Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle was also a greeter during that time. When Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn heard of this, he suspended both men from involvement in organized baseball for violating the league’s rules on gambling. Peter Ueberroth, Kuhn’s successor, lifted the suspension in 1985.

    I have no problem with legalized gambling, .. in fact, i am all for it,.. if it takes business away from organized crime.

    however,.. if you want to be part of MLB or the NFL,….. you should not be connected to even legalized gambling.

    mays, after the suspension was lifted, took a job with the giants,…… no lonmger with ballys

  8. jeter has a 16 game hitting streak over yankees last 17 games, one game off,….. he is batting 365 over that time, even with the 1 for 7 yesterday, with 27 hits 10 runs, 11 rbis, the yankees are 11-5 in those 16 jeter games

    over ichiros last 17 games, 17 yankees games, no games off, he is batting 511, 23 for 45, with 12 runs, 9 rbis, the yankees are 12-5 in those ichiro games

    THE ONE-TWO PUNCH, JETER AND ICHIRO GIVE THE YANKEES, IS SOMETHING WE HAVNT HAD SINCE JETER-BOGGS REALLY,…

    now we are looking at the team playing relaxed,….. free and easy,.. friendly competition,….. pushing eacvh other to greatness i believe,

    we can extend this through the 2013 season,…… we are loking at having the best season since 1998 as a team

  9. if you are in vegas,.. i think you can make that bet in a casino,…… nothing wrong with that,…
    but i know you are joking around,…..thats ok

    tax payers pay a lot of money to government to fight organized crime,… do invstigations, make arrests on gambling, and futher into organized crime

    anyone who places a bet with a “bookie”, is undermining his own taxes that he pays

    it is stupid, to say the least
