Posts, Spring Gameday

Carlos Carrasco will make his final audition for the big-league club today as the Phillies meet the Yankees. Game time is 1:05 p.m.

At this point Carrasco should be heading back to Lehigh Valley; he’ll need another bunch of outings to hone his repertoire. Meanwhile, the starters should be in place today as they gear up for the season opener. Joba Chamberlain starts for the Yankees (he faced the Phils 10 days ago in Tampa).

    Today’s lineup goes for the 3 lefties, with Werth batting 6.

    Stairs (DH), Feliz and Paulino round it out.

    Joba faced the Phils 10 days ago and they got slaughtered.

    Manny- i see what your saying but i hope that with 3 hrs he gets more than 4 rbis or that means the team has trouble getting guys on base

    Sarah, I’m watching the game on YES on TV and the sounds is all screwed up. It’s all the Yankees fault!

    Jim: haha you’re right… I thought about that the minute after I posted my comment

    Also wish that Carrasco would settle down! How are we going to get any innings out of him today?

    What a great way for Carrasco to take himself out of the running for the 5th starter spot. 2 run shot for Hideki Matsui, in his contract year. 2-0 Spankees.

    I hope he can go at least an inning or two with no ERA’s

    I really wanna see Feliz, Victorino and Coste get many more ABs in what’s left of ST.

     
  • Posts: 0 Justin

    Victorino’s different than Feliz and Coste who have been hurt most of ST, he’s been playing so i’m not concerned with Victorino’s play at all since he’s been playing in the WBC which has been more competitive so i think he’s ready and waiting for the season to start.

    FYI… the MLB.com is offering a free-trial of their premium MLB TV today. I’m watching the game for free.

    Carrasco is filthy.

     
  • Posts: 0 Fuhs

    Of all the days to watch the game for free. I guess the audio is too expensive to give away

     
  • Posts: 0 Phan in TN

    listening on audio only and the voice of Chris Wheeler is selling me gigantic slices of delicious pizza for only $4.00

    Charlie is filthy, too… but in a sloppy way.

    I’m not having any problems with the audio…

    Justin: I think Vic needs to play more though in what’s left of ST… he wasn’t a regular player for Team USA cause he had to split time out there… remember Davey Johnson putting Longoria in for Shane’s AB in the last game? Agh… I don’t think Shane got half the playing time Jimmy did.

    Chuck thank’s for the FYI

    … the second the video starts streaming, I see Ryan Howard unable to get a ground ball by first base…

    The new flash player looks very good for MLB TV

    i hope just regular subscribers can use it this season…

    Just started reading down… when we got Slaughtered by the Yankees 10 days ago.. wasn’t Cy Young, aka Kyle Kendrick the one on the hill for us though?

    i thought we beat the Yanks the last time we played them.

    Oooh, Carassaco gave up a pitch that I could’ve knocked out. Audio is bad, picture quality is awesome…

    Anyone else want the Yankeeography? Just asking.

    Ooooh nice… RyHo’s bomb was an opposite field HR

    I am just loving this new Flash Player..the Red color just jumps out at you.

    I had to watch almost all the games on MLB TV last year so I really appreciate the quality of this new stuff.

    Manny: I didn’t get to see many of the games due to work schedule but I agree he didn’t get the PT he needs for ST but being the starter i don’t have many worries that he isn’t ready for the regular season, J-Roll got more ABs and playing time because his bat was too good not to be in the lineup and please find me an argument that someone would rather Jeter playing ss over J-Roll right now. He, right now, is far and away a better fielding ss than Jeter and should have started at Short in their last game against japan.

    When I would go away for buisness, MLBtv saved my life… It really looks good, but, I’m not traveling anymore, so I won’t need it… wish it looked this good last year.

     
  • Posts: 0 Jason B.

    Jeter missed a couple plays up the middle that Rollins makes with his eyes closed. That however was one of many mistakes Davey Johnson made in the game against Japan.

    speaking of the roidinator…he just got a double

    dagnabbit..hits dropping like bird crap

    feel bad for Carasco since he has some good pitches

     
  • Posts: 0 Jason B.

    And Victorino could’ve had him at the plate if Paulino was chock full o sucks.

    watch out jamie, carrasco is breathing down your neck!

     
  • Posts: 0 Chuck P

    Carrasco pitched well. He missed his spot a couple of times, had a couple of bloop hits fall in but he managed only 1 BB and 4 k’s…. overall, he looks good. A little more time in AAA will help.

    They have Ibanez batting fifth against the RH Joba Chamberlain. That’s kind of what I expected.

    It’s gonna be interesting now to see all the lefties [in a row] in our lineup deal with a lefty pitcher from the Yankees

    Yea i read that article on ESPN about all of Davey Johnson’s mistakes and he is an idiot and a bad manager but in all honesty theres nothing that can be done about it. There’s going to be fired managers taking that job for awhile since you can’t expect a current manager to leave his managerial duties during spring training to coach a team USA team. The NBA has the advantage there in that the season or pre season hasn’t even started when they play in those type of games Olympics or Olympic Qualifying games.

    Justin, I completely agree with you, you really can’t pull another skipper from his team… But some moves were no brainers, exam… Victorino switch hitter against a rightie. Vic would bat from the left side, naturally. Vic was in the on deck circle. Instead, he changes his mind and puts right hand hitting Longoria out there and he strikes out looking very bad doing it. That was a no brainer, and he botched it big time… I guess there is a reason Davey is jobless.

    That shirtless guy sitting behind homeplate should at the very least be forced to put on a bra.

    Paulino just watched a baserunner steal second, without the thought of trying to throw him out ever crossing his mind. I hope to God we have another year of Coste.
