Open Thread/Rumor Talk 7/27/11

Yankees lost.  Mariners actually won a game.  Oh well bound to happen.  Hughes needs to step it up or Nova should be brought back ASAP!!!!

Stick with us throughout the night for the latest trades and rumors.

Update:

Kuroda News:

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi report that the Yankees have “intensified” their pursuit of Hiroki Kuroda.
The Tigers, who have had a longstanding interest in Kuroda, are also in the mix, along with the Red Sox, Rangers and Indians. There is a question about whether Kuroda will be willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to an East Coast team, but recent indications are that he’d approve the move on a short-term basis.

Jiminez News:

  • Though the Yankees and Reds have been the most active suitors for Jimenez, they aren’t close to a deal, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. The Yankees aren’t close to matching Colorado’s asking price and it’s hard to imagine the Reds obtaining Jimenez without surrendering Mesoraco. The Tigers and Red Sox are ‘on the fringe’ of the trade talks and the Rangers are no longer considered a candidate to acquire the right-hander.

Zambrano News

The Cubs called the Yankees about Zambrano, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, but the Yankees have no interest.

Signing News

The Yankees signed 14th rounder Rookie Davis to a deal worth $550K, according to Callis (on Twitter). The right-hander/first baseman obtained the biggest bonus so far for any player selected after the third round.

Yankees Profile: Eric Chavez

Eric Chavez hasn’t been with the Yankees for long since he was out with an injury to his foot, but when he has been with the Yankees he has made an impact on the team.

Chavez was originally signed to a minor league contract with the Yankees but made the team in Spring Training. In April he was batting an even .300 average with 5 RBI’s under his belt. In May he only had 3 at-bats before injuring himself running the bases and leaving the game. He had been rehabbing his foot before dealing with a back injury & a kidney stone.

Chavez returned to the Yankees yesterday and was in the starting lineup to give Eduardo Nunez the day off and he impressed. Even though he was 1 for 3, his 1 hit led to him getting an RBI. He also made a couple of good plays at third base to help the Yankees win the game 4-1.

Chavez had believed that he would have been done before the season began. He had serious thoughts on retiring but the Yankees gave him a chance and he had proved himself worthy to the team. The only thing Chavez would need to focus on now is just staying healthy and to be careful running the base-paths.

NYY vs. SEA – 7/27/11

RUMORS THREAD

2:57PM, Buster Olney:

“Source: The Cubs trying to nudge the Yankees into taking Carlos Zambrano, offering up money to offset his salary.”
 
To me, this gives the Yanks an interesting piece of leverage. Potentially, the Yankees could tell the Cubs that they’ll take Zambrano, but only if Ryan Dempster or Matt Garza is included. Dempster/Garza could slot in to #2 in the rotation, although neither are worth/good enough for giving up their elite prospects
 
11:20AM, Jon Heyman:

“#stlcasrds targeting e-jax (plus others) for rasmus. So they want him. Deal could happen within day. Big powwows now. #tradedeadline

11:09AM, Jon Heyman:

“Word is, #bluejays may spin e-jax to #stlcards if get him from #chisox

11:08AM, Bryan Hoch:

“Sounds like you can forget about Pedro Feliciano. Girardi, the eternal optimist, not hopeful for his return.”

11:04AM, Ken Rosenthal:

“Sources: #WhiteSox in serious talks on EJax, Teahen to #BlueJays for Frasor and prospect. Danks, Floyd also on market. #tradedeadline #MLB
 
Also rumored that the Blue Jays may flip Edwin Jackson to a contender, as they have no real use for a rental SP. Although I’d rather see the Yanks make a trade for Danks.
 
11:03AM, Jon Heyman:

#yankees tried for nolasco. They were told #marlins not ready to deal him. Fla aiming at ’12 w/ new stadium #tradedeadline

Lineup:

Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Russell Martin C
Jorge Posada 1B
Eduardo Nunez 3B

Pitchers:

Phil Hughes (1-2, 9.47) vs. Felix Hernandez (8-9, 3.47)

Enjoy the game. If Hughes can’t pitch well against the Mariners, then the Yankees have even more serious problems than any of us thought. Rafael Soriano has not been activated yet and will be up on Friday.

Morning Bits 7/27/11

Good morning.  Great showing from C.C. last night.  He sure is making a statement and will most likely opt out of his contract at the end of the year.

Today is day baseball for the Yankees.

And here are your morning links…

* Reports say the Yankees have the best shot in landing Ubaldo Jiminez.  In my opinion he will most likely turn out to be another A.J. Burnett.

* Thank God Eric Chavez finally returned to the lineup last night after 3 months on the disabled list.  He had an RBI in his debut.

* The SWB Yankees poured on the runs last night. Both Montero and Vazquez had homeruns.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Matt Fortuna:

NEW YORK — Mother Nature was pretty much the only thing capable of stopping CC Sabathia on Tuesday night. Having postponed two Major League games in the past three weeks with her rain, she had two more victories during that period of time than the Seattle Mariners, who had none.

A 17th consecutive loss for the Mariners appeared to be a foregone conclusion by the fourth inning on Tuesday, when Curtis Granderson’s solo home run broke a scoreless tie. What was in doubt, what kept Yankee Stadium alive and anxious before and after a 30-minute rain delay, was whether any Mariners player would do so much as reach first base against the Yankees’ ace.

The answer came in the form of a Brendan Ryan single with one out in the seventh inning, until that point the only blemish on Sabathia in the Yankees’ eventual 4-1 win. Sabathia, who had fallen behind 2-0 to Ryan, recovered by striking out the next two batters, his last resulting in a career-high 14 punchouts on the night.
