Posts Tagged ‘Cleveland Indians’

These are the current American League Wild Card standings. The Yankees now sit two games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have played poorly of late, dropping 7 of their last 10 games. This is exactly the time for the Yankees to make a move and play catch-up. They’ve got these next two games against the Orioles and then a big three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. At this point in the season, every head-to-head game is crucial. They can’t really afford to lose many more games to the Orioles or Rays with only 17 games left to play in the regular season. If I were a betting man, I wouldn’t say the Yankees have a great chance at making the playoffs..but it’s definitely doable. As I write this post, the Cleveland Indians are losing 5-2 to the Kansas City Royals in the top of the 8th inning. Let’s hope it stays that way.

According to The LoHud Yankees Blog, the Yankees are on the verge of signing Travis Hafner, also known as “Pronk.” From 2004-2007, Hafner was one of the most feared hitters in the game. Over that four-year span, he averaged 30+ HR’s and 100+ RBI’s. He can certainly add a bit of pop to this lineup, which will be especially useful without the likes of Alex Rodriguez (insert A-Rod joke here) in there. Fans may be weary of him because of his injury risk, but for the price they’re paying (said to be around the price of Ibanez’s one year contract at $1.1M)..he’s definitely worth the risk. I’m loving this move, and so should you.

“it could be announced later today or tomorrow. Sources have indicated that the deal is in place, just waiting for the contract language to be agreed upon. The Yankees plan to use Hafner as a platoon designated hitter, strictly playing against right-handers. No dollar figure has been confirmed, though it’s believed to be close to the one-year, $1.1 million given to Raul Ibanez around this time last winter.” (Chad Jennings)

Andy Pettitte returned this year because he had “the itch” to pitch in the major leagues again. All was going well until he took a  liner off his left ankle during a start against the Cleveland Indians back on June 27th. He had a fractured left fibula (ankle injury), which was initially supposed to keep him out for only six weeks, but that turned into 12 weeks after a few minor setbacks and a rehab program.

Pettitte pitched the first game of a day-night  double header against the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday in his return, tossing 5 scoreless frames, allowing 4 hits, 2 walks and struck  out 3 batters. He picked up the win, pushing his W-L record to (4-3) on the season. It was almost as if he never left. Whenever they seem to need a victory in a big spot, he usually delivers.

—————————————

Mike Francesa had Andy on the air following yesterday’s start. When asked if he was thinking about pitching in 2013, he said, “It’s definitely a consideration now.”
