    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    In his fourth career game and first game since September 20, 2013, Onelki Garcia allowed a three run home run and grand slam. In the bottom of the second, Cleveland hit a two run home, three run home run, and grand slam. After 4 innings, Cleveland leads Kansas City 12-0. Carlos Carrasco has thrown 42 pitches, which is 3/8ths of the 112 pitches the two Royals have thrown. That game completed 4 innings before the Yankees.

    Decided to check in on everyones favorite....I can't believe that guy can't get more playing time...Rob Refsnyder.

    Since joining Toronto he is batting a robust .212 with a 0 war.

    In his best game since joining the team he went 3-4 with 3 singles.

    In the other 18 games he is 4-30 with no doubles/triples/HR

    Good. May his remaining days with Seattle be filled with many personal achievements and no postseason play.
    Let the kids play.

    I still don't understand why any Yankee fan would want to wish him ill. It was such a pleasure to watch him play. I wish him nothing but the best.

    Me neither. He was a great Yankee. We lost a bidding war and some fans can't get over it. I thought on Sox fans hold vendettas over players who dare leave Boston.

    Bub didn't wish him ill, he wished him a lack of team success. YMMV but I don't consider that to be wishing someone ill. Wishing Lou Gehrig's disease or a ruptured knee or a divorce etc. would certainly qualify but I don't see how being glad if he doesn't get to drink clubhouse champagne again qualifies.

    Cano hit his 300th career HR last Thursday. With 6 years left on his Mariners' contract he has an excellent shot at Jeff Kent's career HR record (351) for 2Bmen as well as at 3000 Hits.

    I wonder how many years at 2B does he have left in him before they move him to 1B or fulltime DH
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    The funny thing is that when he first came up with the Yankees, if i remember right there were some "experts" who thought he could only stay at 2B for a few years, lots of "projections" of having to move him to a corner. 12 years later he's still there.

    He's 2nd in the AL in UZR, meaning that there are a lot worse options out there at 2B. Looks like they won't be moving him off 2B any time soon.

    River Ave. Blues‏ @RiverAveBlues

    Blake Parker (Angels) and Anthony Swarzak (Brewers) gave up the hits that eliminated their teams from postseason contention. Ouch.

    The Brewers blew a 6-0 lead and lost 7-6. Swarzak allowed 2 hits and 2 walks in 2/3 of an inning, and he only got 1 batter out with 1 out from baserunning.

    Congrats to Carlos Beltran, one of my favorite Yankees while he was with the team.

    Yeah thrilled for Carlos. Happy for McCann too-I appreciated the way he stood up for Gary after that Game 2 disaster.

    Anyone remember Shelley Duncan? He's now managing in the minor leagues for the Diamondbacks.

    Just got promoted to Double-A Jackson.

    I believe he is Mariano Duncan's cousin. We play today, at Double A, dats it.
    Do not fear, all we want to do is talk.

    Only words, and then your thoughts.

    though nothing like Shane Spencer's insane 1998, if the Yankees had done something in the 2007 postseason, Shelley's flukey power boost late that year would be fondly remembered now.

    That would be Shelley as the Scarecrow in the Yankees' 2007 Wizard of Oz-themed rookie hazing. Joba was cowardly lion, Ian Kennedy was Dorothy. Not sure who was Tin Man.

    And remember his insane high fives? As I posted back in '07 ...

    And carpal tunnel syndrome too?
    And who can forget what happened when a hapless young Red Sox fan asked Shelley for an autograph?



    One of my favorite short-term Yankees ever.

    The 30-year-old Solarte will assume the role of utility infielder following a season in which he played all four positions for San Diego and slashed .255/.314/.416 in 128 games. He becomes the third infielder acquired by the Blue Jays this offseason, along with Aledmys Diaz and Gift Ngoepe.

    "We've been talking about Yangervis for a long time internally, and our discussions date back to the end of last year," Atkins said. "He's an interesting, versatile player who has a nice offensive track record, a great reputation in the clubhouse and one that we thought would complement us well."
