Posada said he remembered five changeups from Burnett, and he expects even more as Burnett continues to get used to the pitch. “It’s a swing-and-miss pitch, it really is,” Posada said.
Jorge Posada credits Burnett with using the new Change up he tinkered with in Spring Training for getting him some key outs yesterday’s game. That gives him what is (effectively) a 5th pitch, going with his 2 seam and 4 seam fastball, and his hard and soft Curveball.
When Longoria’s ball hit the catwalk, Girardi argued that it hit in foul territory and should be ruled foul. The stadium ground rules say that particular catwalk is in play, making Longoria’s ball live. “It’s not a baseball stadium,” Jorge Posada said. “You can’t have balls going all over the place. It’s sad.”
Girardi was right to argue that one. I’m all for Ballparks being quirky, but that’s just ridiculous.
“When you swing a heavy bat, you’re swinging so much that when you get a lighter bat in your hand, you get a feeling of dominance,” Swisher said. “It feels like a toothpick. Everybody likes that dominant feeling. Mo has it every day.”
But Swisher decided to try the heavier bat against Andy Sonnanstine. Then, on the 2-2 pitch, Swisher crushed one deep into the right-field stands.
“It’s my first time ever using it in a game,” Swisher said. “I was just a little bit out front today, so maybe it brought me back that extra half-a-foot. It worked out.”
Gotta love Swish.
“We went straight from spring training and played arguably the two best teams in the American League, two of our biggest opponents in the division and won both series,” Mark Teixeira said. “You’ve got to feel good about that.”
Getting excited yet? 4-2 against the toughest teams in our division, facing their best starters. We haven’t even had Opening Day at the stadium yet.
