Afternoon Bits: A-Rod, Montero, Feliciano, Marte

Hello everyone.  If your sick of watching the weather channel Espn has the little league world series on.  Also at 4pm on Fox it’s the Saturday prime time game.   The game shown depends on where you live.

Stay safe and here are some links.

* A-Rod hit his first home run since June last night.  Hopefully more are to come.

* Montero’s bat remains scalding hot.   I can’t wait to see him called up and get a chance at the Big Show.

* Feliciano and Marte on verge of progress.

Career Hits & Saves Where do Jeter and Mo stand?

Jeter perfecting his swing

Derek was off to a slow start to begin the season but as of late his hitting has been on fire thanks to his DL stint and reworking on his swing.  Derek has had a lot of multiple hit games the last two weeks so his assault up the rankings has moved quickly. He is one hit away from getting into the top twenty and with a double header on Sunday it will most likely happen then.  Here is where he currently stands.

2. Ty Cobb+ 4189 L
3. Hank Aaron+ 3771 R

19. Dave Winfield+ 3110 R
20. Craig Biggio 3060 R
21. Derek Jeter (37) 3059 R

Saving games it's what he does.

Mariano had a few slip ups a couple weeks ago with blown saves and my thoughts coming into this season was he would probably become the All time saves leader early next year.  I think now with all the chances he has got so far this year he could most likely do it this season.  Here is where he currently stands.

1. Trevor Hoffman 601 R
2. Mariano Rivera (41) 592 R
3. Lee Smith 478 R
4. John Franco 424 L
5. Billy Wagner 422 L

Morning Bits: Burnett, A-Rod, SWB Yankees

A.J. is just getting harder and harder to watch.  It’s becoming unbearable. Some Yankee homeruns last night but it wasn’t enough.   Today both games are postponed.   Stay safe and Enjoy the day.

Here are your links…

* After last night Burnett is probably bound for the bullpen.

* A Rod and the MLB discuss the poker situation.

* Area investors withdraw their offer for SWB Yankees.

— Posada, A-Rod, and Swisher all hit homers yesterday. Swisher’s was an absolute bomb.

— Teixeira is now up to 99 RBIs. That is 3rd in the AL to Adrian Gonzalez and Curtis Granderson.

— Last night was definitely not one of the Yankees most clean defensive games. They committed 4 errors (A-Rod, Cano, Burnett, Martin).

Bryan Hoch of MLB.com recaps the game:

BALTIMORE — The Yankees have spent the better part of three years lauding A.J. Burnett’s electric stuff, patiently waiting for the day when the right-hander will harness it all consistently.

There have been good days and bad ones, but what the Yankees saw Friday was one of the worst in Burnett’s pinstriped tenure, as he was hammered for nine runs in New York’s 12-5 loss to the Orioles at Camden Yards.

“If guys are comfortable off you, they’re going to take their swings off you,” Burnett said. “And guys are comfortable off me. I can see it.”

The numbers tell the entire story with Burnett, who seems to have imploded just as the Yankees are gearing up for the postseason push. His August has been awful, as he is 1-2 with an unsightly 11.91 ERA.
