Morning Bits: A-Rod trade talks, Cano, lineup & more…

Sticking with the old mug for good luck

Good morning all.  Well the Yankees didn’t lose last night so that’s a win.  Bad thing about the rain out though is that C.C. will only be able to pitch once this series.  Game time is set today for 4PM EST.   Enjoy the game.

Now for some links…

Ian O’Connor of ESPN NY writes that after the season A-Rod should be working with the Yankees to get traded.

Bryan Hoch has some quotes from A-Rod who is disappointed on being benched.

The Star Ledger ponders what if Robinson Cano get’s going?

Sports Illustrated has a lineup that the Yankees should be using for game 4.

  1. You would have to guess Girardi is going to throw out the same lineup he had for yesterday’s game right?

  2. Bpark, Doug, Fish, Hank etc what do you think of Sports Illustrated lineup for game 4?

    • i believe that is best line-up we can put up. Hard to believe that Joe is managing this team at this point, more like Hank haha, Cash at best.

    • Honestly, I hate Sports Illustrated’s lineup.They just plugged in the 3 biggest postseason zombies into the lineup. Granderson should not be playing. He couldn’t even hit a beach ball at this point.

    • Don’t like it .
      Defense has been the deciding factor in the post season in the AL.The Yanks without Swisher in LF would have won at least 1 game .Peralta has made several plays that saved the Tigers,and AJAX made a game saver almost identical to the one cabrera hit that Granderson couldn’t catch.
      So while all the fans are enamored with hitting it doesn’t win in the post.
      Strong starting pitching.
      Defense
      closer.
      Those are the 3 things that will get it done.
      Gardner in LF improves the entire outfield.He is better in LF than Ichiro who is better than Swishcheese in RF and having Gardy and Ich on both sides improves the play of Granderson.
      Gardy over Swishcheese is a no brainer.

      • Ballpark what you say is true—yet we have to score something to win I still advocate a shutout by CC and running into 1 in the 9th

      • Seems absurd to start Gardner to me, he hasn’t hit since April with no rehab games. I believe the Yanks are having trouble scoring runs, that’s why their losing these games.

        • All you need to do is watch the Yankees pathetic outfield defense to want him playing. I wish Dickerson could be playing as well. All the games the Yankees have lost can be traced back to poor defensive play.

  3. Regarding Weather and CC, forecast is rain today and worse on Friday so if CC wins today and another postponement —then what?

  4. Raining hard here in Detroit area now, suppose to clear??? to scattered by game time then get worse again.

  5. doubtful—these old bones not so good sitting thru 3 hours in the rain

  6. cant they play a double header today?

  7. a twilight

  8. OH MY GOD,, AROD AND JETER WERE JUST TRADED TO THE MARLINS FOR JOSE REYES

  9. Weather clearing—looks good for the game now
