Cabrera ejected...


The Wedge

Recommended Posts

Yeah, they said that the umpires get a week's vacation during the season.

I never knew that. Why? They have the All-Star break and all winter off.

The problem is not that umps get time off. Nothing wrong with that.

I want alert rested umps, not tired dazed umps.

The problem is that they keep the bare-bones MIN ump-roster instead of having enough guys to handle it.

So they bring in subs. There should be no subs used, they should have enough guys to have a rotation where umps get time off.

MLB is a multi-billion dollar industry, and they can't afford an extra crew of umps?

That tells you how much they care about good umpiring: not much.

Which also shows up in all the ways it's apparent that they don't get adequate supervision either.

IMO, it's a damn crime...

Kind of liked what the Yankee announcers said after the ejection. Something to the effect of, "that's just a guy who basically doesn't understand baseball making a bad decision right there".

But now I feel kind of bad for him also if he is just a fill in from the minors. He was probably was a little nervous on a big stage like that and just reacted before thinking.

I have, my friend. Thirteen to be exact.

Should the players get a week off during the season also? The manager?

Well the players do get days off. And while I don't know how the umpire situations works, I doubt there are much more than 4 for every team in the league.

Last time I checked the players have homestands. The umpires are always on the road, unless they just happen to live in one of the 25 (Combining close cities like San Francisco-Oakland and Baltimore-Washington) MLB cities/regions.

No kidding. Good to see Trembley argue, but he really should have given it to the home plate ump, who clearly misread the situation

Why would Daniel hit ARod on purpose in a 6-1 game where he just gave up a leadoff double? Why eject him without a warning? Even Michael Kay was dumbfounded.

Isn't that his normal state?

Apparently the ump wasn't the only who thought Cabrera through at him. Here's what Giardi had to say...

"I don't know. You never know," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Daniel Cabrera is wild, but I don't like it. He was down in the zone all night tonight and you just don't like it. It's happened a few times with this guy, Daniel Cabrera. We know at times he has some control issues but it's just awful dangerous when you're up there."

"WAAAAAAAAAAHHH! Their pitcher throws really hard and inside. That shouldn't be allowed against my beloved Yankees!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!"

Yeah really Girardi is just crying wolf. I seriously dislike this guy. I loved Torre. He stood for doing things the right way. He would never had a quote like this.

Girardi should know better, as he played the game, and was a catcher at that.

Maybe I am wrong, but it seemed painfully obvious to me that the pitch just got away.

Man I hate everything Yankees............:angryfire:

What are the odds that Girardi has Joba drill Jones, Markakis or Huff early? That way both benches get warned and Sarfate (who is already wild) gets even more pressure put on him.

Then have Wegner toss Jaba without a warning. I'd love it!

    • This is all true. And inversely, Ortiz has the first half of the season at AAA to hit enough to demand Mateo's job.  It works both ways.  
    • It also let’s us get a better look at some of these prospects, to see what we have. I think it’s smarter to be patient and not start trading our big trade chips just yet. Hernaiz was definitely expendable, so I’m really happy with this trade. Ideally, by the trade deadline, Holliday has shown signs that he’s the future at SS and we can confidently trade from our depth at SS to improve our pitching again. 
    • Only way a Profar-Orioles rumor makes sense is if it came from Profar's agent.
    • I don't think he's ever going to comfortably part with the top guys in the system until there are clearly established players on the ML team that would actually block those players he'd be looking at trading. For example, I think once Gunnar and whomever of Westburg/Norby/Ortiz/Mayo lock down two spots (and assuming Holliday is ascending), at that point he'll look to trade whoever hasn't earned regular playing time (but is hopefully still maintaining trade value by performing well in AAA). I think he's worried of trading the wrong guys and having whoever he's left with bust at the ML level, especially if it's in pursuit of a pitcher with minimal long-term team control.
    • Interesting it's possible, I've never cared for either of the brothers so maybe Louis is in the right. I just want the team to get sold and out of this dysfunctional family's hands. 
    • Looking at some of his stats for the last two years, he really looks like the type of guy we would've ran out there for the 2012-2016 teams. H/9, K/9, BB/9, HR/9, WHIP, and K/BB all fall into ranges you would see from Tillman, Chen, Miguel Gonzales, Bud Norris, etc. They all generally had higher ERA+, I assume on account of the ballpark factors? At a glance his numbers from his two years in Oakland match up very similarly to Chen's first two years in Baltimore (2012-2013). I'd be interested in how their stuff compares and if there could be a comp there for those who may know more. I don't think he's dominant by any stretch, but I'm hopeful he can be a solid SP to a playoff rotation over the next four years.
    • I guess the only question left is whether Urias and Mateo are still on the opening day roster. The IF still seems a little crowded with Westburg and Ortiz knocking on the door.    My guess at this point is they both start the season here but at least one of them is in another uniform after the trade deadline.
