Yankees could end games after 4 innings with that pen. laugh.gif

They were scouting the Padres end of last week.

Yankees really want a Righty Bullpen Arm because they won't part with Judge or Severino for a Starter. Right now it's just Adam Warren with Betances. But Betances is your 8th inning guy, need someone else in the mix.

They need another righty arm, and from what I read, they want to lessen the stress on Betances, and Kimbrel would be the 7th inning.

Something along the lines of Nelson & Stanton for Rivera.

Would be lethal lockdown but it's risky. Getting someone like Benoit or another arm makes a lot of sense though.

Kimbrel-DB-Miller would be filthy...we have a lead after 6 & it's game over...sick.gifsick.gif

another righthander is definitely needed in the pen tho whether it be Benoit or Kimbrel.

Shreve has been better.


But Wilson & Warren being your two worst bullpen pitchers is eek.gif because they are really good.

Dotel was a sick setup reliever in Houston.

I was sad we had to give up Dotel and Cedeno for Mike Hampton and Derek Bell. Dotel was our Mejia. I liked the trade but wish we didn't give up these young promising players. Lucky for us that Cedeno didn't play well. Bell with his infamous eephus pitch. pimp.giflaugh.gif

Deal will not happen at all but if it did he wouldn't close or set up over Betances or Miller so 7th it is for him.

a guy who has been arguably the best closer in baseball the last 3 years would be a 7th inning guy? the chances of him going there are slim but if he does he is the closer.

No he would not. Numbers for Miller and Betances are better this year, he would be 7th inning guy.

post #42923 of 77278

I can see Cubs instead getting Kimbrel and Tyson Ross while giving up Starlin Castro and some other dudes

 

Padres get their shortstop and Cubs promote Javier Baez for 2B while moving Addison to SS.

roll.gif at thinking Kimbrel will accept a 7th inning role. He can be an all time great closer he's not giving that.
post #42927 of 77278
Kimbrel is not coming to NY. Doesn't make sense, he wants to close and is getting paid a lot. Makes no sense to come here and pitch in the 7th. I don't think Kimbrel would do well in NY either.
post #42928 of 77278
asking timbrel to pitch in the 7th is as dumb as trading for eric gagne and asking mo to be the set up man just because gagne saved like 80 straight games

Today in Baseball History - July 29th (Click to show)
Today in Baseball History
July 29th

1908 Rube Waddell fans sixteen of his former teammates when the Browns defeat the A's at Sportsman's Park, 5-4. During the off season, a frustrated Connie Mack, Philadephia's owner and manager, traded his talented but free-spirit hurler to St. Louis.

1911 In the first game of a twin bill at Huntington Ave Baseball Grounds, Red Sox right-hander Joe Wood whiffs twelve Browns en route to a 5-0 no-hitter. 'Smokey', a nickname coined due to his blazing fastball, throws the fifth hitless game in franchise history, and last to be accomplished in the Boston ballpark.

1911 With nine stolen bases at Robison Field in St. Louis, the Giants establish a franchise record. During the 8-0 rout of the Redbirds, eight different New York players contribute to the record and seven of the nine steals are off Cardinals backstop Jack Bliss.

1915 Pirates' third baseman Honus Wagner reaches Robins' (Dodgers) hurler Jeff Pfeffer for a grand slam in the eighth inning, helping Pittsburgh beat Brooklyn at Forbes Field, 8-2. The inside-the-park round tripper makes the 41 year-old infielder the oldest player ever to hit a home run with the bases full, a record which will last until 1985.

1919 At Navin Field, Dutch Leonard decides to pitch around Bob Roth with two outs in the ninth inning to face Babe Ruth. Although the Boston slugger, who has already reached the Detroit southpaw with two doubles, responds by tying an American League record with his ninth homer of the month and sixteenth of the season, the Tigers prevail, 10-8.

1928 The Indians follow up their eight-run first inning with nine more tallies in the next frame in their 24-6 rout of the Yankees at Dunn Field. The Tribe's third baseman Johnny Hodapp collects two singles in both the second and sixth frames.

1938 On the WGN’s White Sox pregame radio show, Yankee outfielder Jake Powel, in response to a Bob Elson question concerning his off season employment as a Dayton, Ohio policeman, quips "I crack n*****s on the head”. Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis down plays the incident, describing the ballplayer’s comments as acting not “intentionally, but carelessly,” will suspend the reserve flychaser for ten days.

1955 Smoky Burgess hits three home runs and drives in nine runs in the Reds' 16-5 rout of Pittsburgh at Crosley Field. The Cincinnati catcher, in addition to his grand slam and pair of two-run round-trippers, also collects a run-scoring single.

1968 Reds right-hander George Culver, facing 34 batters, throws a no-hitter, beating the Phillies at Connie Mack Stadium, 6-1. Philadelphia tallies an unearned run in the second inning when **** Allen reaches base on a throwing error by the third baseman, goes second on another error on the same play, gets to third base on a groundout, and then scores on a sacrifice fly.

1969 Major League Baseball proclaims Joe DiMaggio as its greatest living player, a title the Yankee Clipper will proudly embrace until his death in 1999. The determination was made by sportswriters in a poll conducted to coincide with the centennial of professional baseball.

1978 The Yankee Stadium crowd is pleasantly surprised as recently resigned skipper Billy Martin returns to join in on the Old Timers' Day festivities. Much to their delight, the fans are informed ‘Billy the Kid’ will return as skipper in 1980.

1983 Due to a dislocated thumb suffered in a collision at home plate in an attempt to score in the first game of a doubleheader against Atlanta, Padres first baseman Steve Garvey's consecutive game streak ends in the nightcap at 1,207. It is the third-longest span in major league history without missing a game.

1986 Sparky Anderson, the first skipper to win the World Series in each league, also becomes the first manager to win 600 games in both the National and American Leagues when the Tigers beat the Brewers, 9-5.

1988 The Orioles trade pitcher Mike Boddicker to the Red Sox in return for Brady Anderson and Curt Schilling. Boddicker will have two successful years with Boston while Anderson will become a productive lead off hitter for Baltimore and Schilling will become one of baseball's most dominant pitchers of his era.

1988 After his request for time-out isn't granted by the home plate umpire Mike Reilly, Bo Jackson, despite not being set in the batter box when the pitch is delivered, recovers in time to hit a home run. The Royals left fielder's fourth-inning three-run poke off Jeff Ballard contributes to Kansas City's 6-3 victory over Baltimore at Memorial Stadium.

1989 The White Sox trade Harold Baines, their all-time home run leader, and left-fielder Fred Manrique to the Rangers for outfielders Scott Fletcher and Sammy Sosa, along with southpaw Wilson Alvarez. Three seasons later, the Pale Hose will send Slammin' Sammy to the Cubs where the Dominican slugger will hit 545 home runs during his 13-year stay with their cross-town rivals.

1989 Rickey Henderson steals five bases and scores four runs without the benefit of getting an official time at bat. The offensive output is made possible when the A's leadoff hitter is issued four bases-on-balls by Randy Johnson, who still manages to get the win in the M's 14-6 victory at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

1996 After a mild heart attack last month, Tommy Lasorda, 68 year-old Dodger manager of twenty years, announces his retirement due to his health. The future Hall of Fame skipper, who was named the National League Manager of the Year in 1983 and '88, led Los Angeles to four pennants and two World Series championships during his 21 seasons at the helm.

1996 The Mets deal Jeff Kent along with Jose Vizcaino to the Indians for Carlos Baerga and Alvaro Espinoza. The trade, considered to be one of the worst in franchise history, will be a bust for New York when Baerga hits only .267 in three non-productive seasons in the Big Apple, and Kent goes on to win an a MVP award and posts Hall of Fame numbers for a second baseman during his 17-year tenure in the major leagues.

1996 Chris Sabo will be suspended for seven games, losing approximately $70,000 in salary, and the Reds will be fined $25,000 as the result of his use of a doctored bat in today's 2-1 loss to Houston at Cinergy Field. The Cincinnati third baseman will claim the bat, which was hollowed out and filled with pieces of rubber balls, wasn't his, but one of three offered to him by the batboy after he had broken his bat during a plate appearance in the second inning.

2000 The Brewers hold Bob Wickman all-star Poster Night a day after the team trades their all-star reliever along with Jason Bere and Steve Woodard to the Indians for a player to be named later (Marco Scutaro), Kane Davis, Paul Rigdon and Richie Sexson. The Brew Crew gives away 30,000 printed pictures of their former closer, who played for the team for the past five seasons, on a night they are routed by the Rockies, 10-2, with Rigdon, one of the players in the trade, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings in his Milwaukee debut.

2000 Recently acquired Mets make good first impressions as Mike Bordick goes 2-for-3, including a homer on the first pitch he sees as a Met, and Rick White pitches a scoreless inning to get the win; the other newcomer, Bubba Trammell, will homer in his first at-bat in his Met debut tomorrow.

2000 The White Sox trade catcher Brook Fordyce and three minor league pitchers to the Orioles for catcher Charles Johnson and designated hitter Harold Baines. The deal brings Baines, who will retire after playing very part-time role with the team for two seasons, back to Chicago, where he played a dozen of his most productive years of his 22-year tenure in the major leagues.

2000 With two outs in the ninth inning at Olympic Stadium, Eddie Taubensee knots the score at 3-3 with his game-tying home run off Expos starting pitcher Javier Vazquez. The Reds catcher then homers again in the 11th off Julio Santana for the game winner in Cincinnati's 4-3 win over Montreal.

2001 In Arlington, Craig Monroe homers in his first major league game. The rookie right fielder's fifth-inning blast contributes to the Rangers' 2-0 victory over the Devil Rays.

2002 The text of the letter signed by 40 Hall of Famers and sent to baseball commissioner Bud Selig and union head Donald Fehr urges all sides 'to protect the game we all love and have given so much to, we suggest you agree to a qualified mediator that will allow you to find the common ground necessary to avoid a work stoppage'' is released. The former outstanding players, which include Reggie Jackson, Willie Mays and Warren Spahn, believe another work stoppage in baseball would be a terrible mistake.

2002 After playing the annual Hall of Fame exhibition game in Cooperstown, the White Sox and Rockies announce a trade which sends veteran catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. to Colorado, with right-hander class A minor-league pitcher Enemencio Pacheco going to Chicago.

2002 The Phillies trade 27 year-old third baseman Scott Rolen along with minor league reliever Doug Nickle to the Cardinals in exchange for infielder Placido Polanco, southpaw Bud Smith and reliever Mike Timlin. Reportedly, the former Philadelphia third sacker rejected a ten-year pact estimated to be worth $140 million, due to his feud with manager Larry Bowa.

2003 In a game against the Rangers, Bill Mueller becomes the first player to hit two grand slams in the same game, one from each side of the plate. The Red Sox switch-hitting third baseman, not known for his power, was batting eighth in the Boston line-up.

2004 In a 10-1 victory over the Expos, Eric Valent becomes the eighth player in franchise history to hit for the cycle. After singling in the second, doubling in the third, homering in the fifth, the Mets' utility player triples in the seventh to join Phillies David Bell, Pirates Daryle Ward, and Chad Moeller of the Brewers to accomplish the feat this season.

2006 With a 19-6 rout of the Yankees at the Stadium, the Devil Rays tie a franchise record for runs scored. Batting last, Tampa Bay third baseman Tomas Perez adds to the barrage with four doubles, equaling the major league mark for two-baggers hit in one game.

2006 Julio Franco became the oldest player ever to pinch run when he takes Carlos Delgado's place on the base paths after the Mets' infielder is hit by a pitch in the fourth inning. The 47 year-old pinch-runner, who will stay in the game to play first, steals second base and will advance to third on the catcher's error in the Mets' 11-4 win over Atlanta at Turner Field.

2008 With a tip of his helmet for the ovation from the Rangers fans, Ichiro Suzuki acknowledges his achievement of reaching 3,000 hits in professional baseball. The 34 year-old Mariners outfielder had collected 1,278 hits with the Orix Blue Wave in Japan’s Pacific League, and his first-inning single off Texas right-hander Luis Mendoza was his 1,722nd hit with Seattle during eight seasons with the team.

2008 In a 4-1 win over the Marlins at Dolphin Stadium, Mets third baseman David Wright scores in his 13th consecutive game, establishing a new franchise record. Teammate Carlos Beltran had set the previous team mark in 2006.

2008 In a surprising pre-deadline trade, the banged-up Braves and first-place Angels exchange first basemen with switch-hitting slugger Mark Teixeira being sent to Los Angeles with Casey Kotchman and minor league pitching prospect Steve Marek going to Atlanta. Teixeira, acquired from Texas last July in a seven-player deal which included Jarrod Saltalamacchia, is eligible for free agency at the end of the season.

2009 In an attempt to upgrade their starting rotation, the first-place Phillies obtain Cliff Lee from the Indians. The defending World champs, who also get outfielder Ben Francisco in the deal, trade pitching prospects Carlos Carrasco and Jason Knapp, infielder Jason Donald and catcher Lou Marson to get last season's AL Cy Young Award Winner.

2009 The Pirates spend a busy day on the trading block, sending 2006 batting champ Freddy Sanchez to the Giants for 20 year-old former first-round draft pick Tim Alderson, a right-hander with excellent control. The Bucs also deal shortstop Jack Wilson and pitcher Ian Snell to the Mariners for shortstop Ronny Cedeno and four minor leaguers, including triple-A catcher-first baseman Jeff Clement.

2009 The Royals play an entire a game without registering a single defensive assist for the first time in franchise history in their 7-3 loss to Baltimore at Camden Yards. During Kansas City’s eight innings in the field, the team records 24 outs via nine strikeouts, 13 fly outs, and two groundouts, both handled unassisted by first baseman Billy Butler.

2010 After Roy Oswalt gives his approval to a trade from the Astros to the Phillies, Philadelphia sends J.A. Happ, outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar to Houston for the three-time All-Star hurler and a considerable amount of cash. The 32 year-old right-hander compiled a respectable 3.24 ERA, but posted only a 6-12 record due to a severe lack of run support.

2010 The front-running Padres trade Double-A right-hander Wynn Pelzer to obtain veteran infielder Miguel Tejada from the Orioles, who also include more than $1.15 million in the deal. San Diego is hoping the 36-year-old former American League Most Valuable Player can help the potential playoff team, both in the field and at the plate, with his 14 years of experience in the major leagues.

2010 The Orioles hire 54 year-old Buck Showalter to become the club's skipper. The two-time American League Manager of the Year, known for his ability to build winners, takes over a team with the worst record in the major leagues at 31-70.

2010 The Twins acquire Matt Capps (3-3, 2.74 ERA, 26/30 saves) and $500,000 from the Nationals for highly touted catching prospect Wilson Ramos and southpaw minor leaguer Joe Testa. Minnesota will use Washington's only All-Star as its closer, filling a void created during spring training when Joe Nathan underwent Tommy John surgery.

2011 The Phillies acquire Hunter Pence from the last-place Astros for a trio of highly touted minor leaguers. The 28 year-old right-fielder joins Philadelphia with a .309 average, 11 homers and 62 RBIs.

2013 Jason Giambi (42 years, 6 months, 22 days) becomes the oldest major leaguer to stroke a walk-off homer, pinch-hitting a two-run blast off Ramon Troncoso deep beyond the center-field wall in the Indians’ 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the White Sox at Progressive Field. Hank Aaron (42 years, 5 months, 7 days) previously held the distinction with his game-winning round-tripper against Texas on July 11, 1976.
