    The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    2008...lets get the ball rolling.

    From Rotoworld today:

    Pirates purchased the contract of infielder Doug Mientkiewicz from Triple-A Indianapolis.
    Pirates released RHP Jaret Wright.
    Wright would have been a free agent come Thursday if not added to the team's 40-man roster, and was always a bit of a long shot to make the team. He currently sports a 3.38 ERA after eight innings, but has four walks to just one strike out. He'll likely catch on somewhere.
    The Pirates also signed BHKim...imagine being cut over that guy....

    Pirates optioned OF Kevin Thompson to Triple-A Indianapolis

    Since when did Pittsburgh have such an interest in our rejects?

    Unfortunately we seem to be having trouble beating the Pirates with our ML team. I know, it's just ST. Just carrying on the joke.

    The Pirates? Poor Doug. Well I will get to see him play the 'stros quite often this season.

    Mar 27 Barry Srvluga, of the Washington Post, reports Washington Nationals 1B Nick Johnson appears close to securing the starting first baseman's job. Manager Manny Acta is not expected to announce the starter until sometime during the weekend. However, Johnson started at first in back-to-back road games this week and played all nine innings in both games.
    I certainly hope so. I took a flyer on Nick in a couple of my fantasy leagues.

    Hope you have a decent backup to take his place after he gets put on the DL!

    The Cincinnati Reds plan to cut 40-year-old reliever Mike Stanton.
    After 19 major league seasons, Stanton ranks second in appearances with 1,178.

    There's no doubt about that. I really hope he has better luck this season.

    The Reds optioned pitcher Bill Bray to Triple-A Louisville, reassigned infielder Andy Phillips to Minor League camp and returned Jose Capellan to the Red Sox via the Rule 5 Draft rule.

    Phillips was reassigned, but it is unclear at which Minor League level he will start. The infielder batted .277 with 11 RBIs in Spring Training, but it wasn't enough to persuade the Reds to keep the non-roster invitee.

    I don’t even know if he’d want to go out there right now: apparently he’s been having some kind of personal / family problems, and I can’t see him wanting to be on the opposite coast from where his wife and kids are (he still makes his home in New Jersey). It must’ve been a pretty big emergency for him to leave camp last Sunday, knowing his position on the roster was pretty precarious. They told him he was cut the morning he came back.

    I'm still hoping someone will take a chance on him: budget-wise, he's no risk if the Reds are going to end up paying his entire salary this year. He pitched better last year than his overall numbers show, and he's had bad years before and come back from them.

    Worse case scenario, if no offers come, maybe he asks Cashman for a one day contract and retires as a Yankee.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    A few updates on former Yankees, from Abraham:
    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2008/03/2...tions-of-note/

    Chris Woodward signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies.

    The Reds are going to pay off LHP Mike Stanton and release him.

    INF Andy Phillips was assigned to minor league camp by the Reds.

    Toronto granted C Sal Fasano his unconditional release.

    LHP Mike Myers was released by the Dodgers.

    It appears LHP Ron Villone will make the Cardinals and INF Doug Mientkiewicz is sticking with the Pirates.

    Alfonso Soriano will be the first Cub to make consecutive Opening Day starts at two different positions since 1996. Soriano started in center field last year, and will start in left on Monday. The last player to do that was Rey Sanchez, who started at second base in 1995 and at shortstop in 1996.

    Soriano has a way to go to equal the four different positions that George Altman and Billy Williams have started on Opening Day for the Cubs. Altman started four, and played a different position each time (center field in 1959, first in 1960, right in 1962, and left in 1965.

    Good to see him get a hit/RBI when I was caught some of the game last night...but his slides into second and home had me holding my breath..we thought for sure he was going to be hurt. Hope he stays on the field this year so we can see him over the full year.

    Me too, especially the one at second. It seemed like he stayed down for a while. I was whispering at the TV, "Get up. Get up." Whew.
