Josh Donaldson had 20 RBI in April, he's the 1st A's player to do that since Eric Chavez and Nick Swisher did so April 2006
At least the Yankees have backup First Basemen Raul Ibanez, Eric Chavez and Nick Swisher on the roster. Oh wait...
After some deep thought and analysis about the up coming Baseball Season, even though I always believe the Yankees are the team to beat, I've come to the conclusion that this probably won't be their year. With Nick Swisher, Andreu Jones, Eric Chavez, gone, Curtis Granderson out for 10 weeks, and A-Girl (A-Rod) won't be back until after the All-Star break. That's a total of almost 200 home runs gone from their offense, that's a lot of missing offensive power. I also heard the other day, Kevin Youklis, A-Girl's replacement just got injured also. Unless some of the veterans and the young guys step-up, it could be a really long year in the Bronx. Plus their starting rotation leaves something to be desired after you get by CC Sabathia. The Yankees will be coming to Anaheim to play the Angels in June (14th,15th,16th), picked up my tickets last Saturday at Anaheim Stadium. They will be coming to San Diego August 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, to play the weak *** Padres , will be picking up tickets March 7th when single ga ...
"The lineup has lost a good deal of thump, with players like Nick Swisher, Russell Martin, Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez deleted from last year's squad..." The reality of this is really setting in now and reading this has ruined my day!
Regina, Sara, Jessica, Jack, Darryl, & Lernard. Joe G. saying the Bronx Bombers can win 95 games & the World Series this year. Ummm, Joe, look at thé team...old pitching staff...Didnt get King Felix, can CC, Pettite, Kudora, Nova, Rivera stay healthy, no Rafael Soriano, no Andruw Jones, no Eric Chavez, no Nick Swisher, no Raul Ibanez, no Alexander Rodriguez, will Captain Deter Jeter be Jeter of last year before injury, can Tex be consistent, how good will Granderson eyes be, can Gardner stay healthy, no Russell Martin.
Raul Ibanez has signed with the Seattle Mariners, his former team. Ibanez played a significant role with the New York Yankees last year and was one of the most valuable players in the playoffs. Thanks to New York's management in trying to cut costs, trying to stay at a $189 million budget, the Yankees are unable to sign much of their Free Agents this year. Russel Martin, Eric Chavez, Nick Swisher, maybe Rafael Soriano and now Raul Ibanez have all signed with other teams even though they played a significant role in the 2012 Yankees. Andruw Jones is also a Yankee who has signed elsewhere but he didn't pan out well towards the end with his cold streak at the plate.
The New York Yankees have excercised the 2013 contract options for Robinson Cano ($15 million), Curtis Granderson ($15 million) and David Aardsma ($500,000 thousand)...but the Yankees still have big-time free agent decisions to make, with players such as Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Nick Swisher, Ichiro Suzuki, Russell Martin, Hiroki Kuroda, Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez...and gotta see what Rafael Soriano will do with the club option or buyout...so still lots to look at for the Yankees organization...NYY
New York Yankees - "No surprises here, but the Players Association has announced its full list of 137 players who filed for free agency this morning. They become eligible to negotiate with any team at 12:01 am ET on Saturday. For now, there is an exclusive negotiating window with each free agent’s former team. These are the 12 Yankees who filed. Eric Chavez, Pedro Feliciano, Freddy Garcia, Raul Ibanez, Andruw Jones, Hiroki Kuroda, Derek Lowe, Russell Martin, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Ichiro Suzuki, Nick Swisher."
ok Marc. in this mornings Daily News front page 72% on DN readers want to dump A-Rod. along with A-Rod they want to dump Eric Chavez, Curtis Granderson (who all of a sudden has poor vision), Nick Swisher, Andruw Jones, Joba Chamberlain, Freddy Garcia, Kevin Long, and Derek Lowe.
Question for NY Yankee Fans: As far as I can see, the Yankees have 11 Free Agents... Nick Swisher; Ichiro Suzuki; Russell Martin; Raul Ibanez; Hiroki Kuroda; Mariano Rivera; Andy Pettitte; Derek Lowe; Eric Chavez; Andruw Jones and Freddy Garcia. The team has two Club options... Cano and Granderson (already say they will exercise option w/ Granderson) and Rafael Soriano has a player option. Who should they go after and make an offer and who should they let walk???
Terrible Fact and the Fun Fact season finale for this wack postseason: The Yankees have six players with at least 20 plate appearances hitting below .200 this postseason. Robinson Cano has hit .083 in eight games, including going 1-for-14 in the three games against Detroit. Curtis Granderson has hit .103 with 15 strikeouts in 29 at-bats, including six strikeouts in 10 hitless at-bats during the ALCS. Alex Rodriguez is hitting .130 with 12 strikeouts in 23 at-bats, Nick Swisher .154, Russell Martin .172. Eric Chavez, who has taken over for Rodriguez at third, has yet to have a hit. By comparison, St. Louis' pitchers have hit .214 in the playoffs.
Manager Joe Girardi shuffled his lineup once again for Wednesday's do-or-die Game 4 of the American League Championship Series vs. the Tigers, sitting Curtis Granderson in favor of Nick Swisher. Swisher, who sat out Game 3, is in right field and batting second for Game 4. For the second consecutive game, Brett Gardner is in the lineup. With Granderson out, Girardi moved Gardner over to center field and slid him down to the eighth spot in the lineup. Gardner went 0-for-4 while playing left field and batting leadoff in Game 3. Ichiro Suzuki will start in left and lead off. Alex Rodriguez is also on the bench for the second straight game, as Eric Chavez will play third base and bat sixth.
With his team not hitting and down two games in the ALCS, New York Yankees manager Joe Giradi has totally shaken up his lineup for Game 3 by benching Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher against Tigers' starter Justin Verlander.
So Joe Girardi has benched both Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher for tonight's Game No. 3 against the Tigers. Eric Chavez gets another start at third, while Brett Gardner will make his first postseason start in the outfield. Also, Eduardo Nunez will start over Jayson Nix at shortstop. It is simply must-win time for the Yankees.
yes. With an A's hat for Eric Chavez and Nick Swisher
Baseball Today with Jeff Joyce and Mel Antonen is on until 1 pm ET. Give Jeff and Mel a call at 866-MLB-ON-XM/866-652-6696. Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano, A Rod, Eric Chavez and Nick Swisher are a combined 10-for-104 this Postseason and Jose Valverde has a 27.00 ERA, so we ask which is a bigger problem?
Derek Jeter is out for the rest of the postseason with a broken ankle. This is devastating. The rest of the team really has to stepping up and getting hits, not only Alex Rodriguez but Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano, and Eric Chavez. Russell Martin, Ichiro Suzuki, Mark Texiera are doing decent, so is our pitching. We can still win this, let's start today
Yankees line-up yesterday: Russell Martin: acquired from the Dodgers. Mark Texeira: acquired from the Angels. Eric Chavez: acquired from the A's. Ichiro Suzuki: acquired from the Mariners. Curtis Granderson: acquired from the Tigers. Nick Swisher: acquired from the White Sox. Raul Ibanez: acquired from the Phillies. Sabathia: acquired from the Brewers. Players on the field developed by the Yankees themselves: two, Jeter and Cano. Best sport ever, IMO. But the economics are ugly, ugly, ugly.
So here's the lineup the Yankees will use for tonight's climactic Game Five against the Orioles: Derek Jeter SS Ichiro Suzuki LF Robinson Cano 2B Mark Teixeira 1B Raul Ibanez DH Nick Swisher RF Curtis Granderson CF Russell Martin C Eric Chavez 3B CC Sabathia P A-Rod has been benched, replaced by Chavez, and Ibanez will get the start at DH and bat fifth. In my mind, those are absolutely the right moves. I would have taken it a step further and benched Granderson, replacing him with Brett Gardner, one of the few Yankees who doesn't swing for the fences and might actually work out a walk or two. What are your thoughts on Joe Girardi's lineup?
Eric Chavez, who hit for Rodriguez in the 13th inning of the Yankees’ Game 4 loss, will start at third base in Game 5. Rodriguez is one of many Yankees regulars having a rough ALDS. Through the first four games of the series, he is 2-for-16 with nine strikeouts. Center fielder Curtis Granderson (1-for-16, nine strikeouts), right fielder Nick Swisher (2-for-15) and second baseman Robinson Cano (2-for-18) will remain in the starting lineup, and ESPNewYork.com reports Derek Jeter (foot) will return to shortstop after serving as the DH in Game 4.
Joe Girardi is a numbers guy.hey Joe, Eric Chavez is 3 for 6 (.500 BA) with one HR and 3 RBI's against Oriole starter Miguel Gonzalez.Reason to START him TONITE as DH! with Raul Ibanez in Right for Nick Swisher!
Should Joe Girardi consider benching Alex Rodriguez + Nick Swisher in favor of Eric Chavez and Raul Ibanez? What does everything think?
I haven't watched the A's in forever they used to be beast with Eric Chavez, Nick Swisher, Mark Ellis, etc. Let's go A's
4th go-ahead HR in the 7th inning or later for Nick Swisher this year. Only other Yankee w/ more than 1 such HR is Eric Chavez (2)
At 120 games into the season, who would think that "hottest bats" would bring Nick Swisher and Eric Chavez to mind of fans?
The Game Started Ok for the Rangers. Nelson Cruz singled home a Run in the 1rst Inning and David Murphy hit a Solo Homer in the 2nd. But that was all the scoring the Rangers did. The Yankees rocked Dempster for 5 Runs in the 3rd Inning for 5 Runs. Nick Swisher hit a Grand Slam Homer Run. Later on Eric Chavez hit a Solo Shot. Yanks went on to Win 8-2. Rangers Drop the Opener of the Four Game Set. Now 67-47. Lead over Idle Oakland is 6 Games. The Angels will either be 7 or 8 back depending on the Outcome of their Game with the Indians. Matt Harrison pitches tomorrow night had a rough outing the last time out against the Red Sox. Need a Bounce Back Game. Go Rangers. Let's get back on track.
Eric Chavez after this year what happens to him?Will he get blown off like Nick Swisher maybe.Chavez is a great back up so I say he come NYY
Nick Swisher sac-fly puts back ontop of 6-5, 2 down, none on for Eric Chavez.
At Yankees tonight, where Mark Teiceira is not in the lineup. Nick Swisher is at 1B, Eric Chavez is the DH, Ibanez in RF.

Eric Chavez with a sac fly to center with the bases loaded. Mark Teixeira scores from third. Nick Swisher to third. Yankees lead 8-5.
Can't believe Mariano Rivera is out for the year. Nick Swisher is still out with his knee injury Eric Chavez is out with whiplash And now Mariano is out with torn acl
Mariano Rivera is hurt now. WOW. So, Eric Chavez, Nick Swisher, and now Mariano go down with injuries all within the span of a week. Shiitt.
Home run fest for NY with two jacks from Eric Chavez + one each from Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Russell Martin. Leave some for tom.
