  1. I was a day late and a dollar short on Cervelli. He got snatched up this morning as I waited for Y! to put the DL stamp on Jorge. Now I’ll have to go with Zaun or Torrealba.

  3. LeBlanc scares me. while his era is a savory 1.54, his whip is 1.31. seems like a stat correction is in place as some of those baserunners (3.34bb/9ip) come around to score.

  4. Does Posada’s injury in any way affect how the Yanks may handle Montero this year?

  5. Dropped Snyder for Cervelli before the news hit about Jorge. Now will coast with the solid production till Posey gets the call!

  7. Doubtful. At the beginning of the season, I estimated that Jesus Montero had about a <20% chance of an early call up this year based on his age, performance, the Yankees roster/depth, and reports from management. The primary reason that he won't be called up is because management is strongly committed to developing Montero as a catcher unless/until he physically grows too big for the position. Since his defense still needs a lot of work, the Yankees wouldn't call him up for his skills behind the dish.

    Instead, the best chance for Montero would be an unlikely combination of devastating injuries to the New York lineup and a team-wide offensive slump that would threaten their playoff chances. This *could* force the Yankees' hand to add Montero's bat, but they would only add him as a DH. Granted, the injury situation is just about right: their best offensive C (Jorge Posada – check), the DH (Nick Johnson – check), and other DH possibilities (Nick Swisher – although I think he's back now).

    The current problem, oddly enough, is his hitting. In his first run at AAA this year, Montero is hitting .230/.304/.385 with 3 HR's in 122 AB's. Until Montero figures out AAA pitching, we may not see a callup until September or even 2011. The Yankees do not want to hinder his development as a catcher, Montero isn't lighting up AAA, and the Yankees are still very much in contention in the AL East. All reasons that I think his timeline is currently unaltered.

  8. Love LeBlanc. Do you see Coghlan out performering Andres Torres and Angel Pagan this year. I’m currently rostering Torres and I’m open to other speed options. Batting 9th instead of the pitcher tonight, does not exactly give me a vote of confidence for Torres.

  9. meh, that whip isn’t awful if you’re talking about a spot starter/back of the rotation guy.

  10. I’d take Coghlan over Torres any day. As a G’s fan I can tell you Torres is not good, or guaranteed any sort of consistent PT either.

  11. Jeremy Guthrie 3% owned, one-eighth as much as LeBlanc? I’d prefer 8 Guthries to 1 LeBlanc. Heck, I’d prefer 1 Guthrie to 1 LeBlanc.
