IS THE AROD BLACKOUT A COINCIDENCE?


Just wanted to keep you in the loop on the Yankees.  They will play tomorrow in their first televised Spring Training game on YES. It's a Spring game and it doesn't mean jack squat and that's usually how I personally approach these games.  But let's be honest, there is no question that with all this snow in the Northeast, I will welcome baseball back into my life.  Even as a Little League coach this year, we're gearing up and struggling with training kids in gyms to get ready.  That just blows, bottom line. We need this snow gone. We need to play on a field where baseball is supposed to be played. Wait... what was I talking about? Oh yeah, the Yankees... and ARod and a funny development. Sorry...

Tuesday's game is televised. But Wednesday's game, the game in which ARod will make his debut... that won't be. My buddy texted me this today:


"Yanks are blocking ARod from Yankee fans. They hate him."

I simply wrote back, "Meh."  

I mean, is this strange that Alex's game isn't televised this week?  Apparently it is "outrageous" to my bud, but maybe Alex is just not ready.  My pal has always had a hunch that the Yankees just don't like Alex and this just falls in line with everything else he blabs to me about.  See, my buddy Joe likes watching Alex hit, but isn't a huge fan.  He is clearly a conspiracy theorist though. 

But here's the main thing;  Alex is a Yankee, and sooner or later we will see Alex.  But if you ask my friend Joe, he'd tell you that he's convinced that the Yanks want to keep this dude out of the public eye for as long as Hank is in his cage.  After all, when Hank was out of his cage, he was checking out Yoan Moncada and just a few days later, Moncada signed with the Sox. 


He thinks this is strategic, and so I ask you, are you with Joe on this one? Is this a strategic blackout or just the Spring?  Honestly, it's probably just the way it all fell together, but there is no doubt that millions of Yankee fans, love Alex or hate him, wanted to see him play a.s.a.p. 

I guess we just wait for his game... on Wednesday. No biggie. Oh and just so you know, Wally Matthews of ESPN said  the following:

"Girardi said Rodriguez -- who has been taking reps at third base and first base in training camp -- will be the designated hitter Wednesday and is likely to get two or three at-bats "depending on how often he hits and how long of a game it is, that sort of thing."

According to Girardi, their conversation about playing Wednesday consisted of two sentences.

"I just asked him, 'What do you think about Wednesday?,'" Girardi said. "And he said, 'Good.'"

Whatever the case... we'll wait, and to be honest, that's totally fine with me... because baseball is finally back tomorrow and I am freakin' psyched.

Joe, you owe me 20 bucks, I mentioned you on Bleeding Yankee Blue.

KIDS TO WATCH: TYLER AUSTIN


With Spring Training being upon, Bleeding Yankee Blue is continuing this series, highlighting the kids that are vying for a coveted spot on the major league roster. We are going over their respective backgrounds – how they have been playing, their strengths, their weaknesses, and what to look for.


Tyler Austin is a 23-year old prospect who has had a lot of promise and for whom prime time is upon him. The Yankees picked him up in the 13th round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft, and showed tremendous promise. In his first full season of minor league baseball, in 2012, he had a meteoric rise through the ranks. He climbed through several levels, reaching the Class AA Trenton Thunder. He had a combined slash line of .322/.400/.559, an OPS of .959, and earned the Yankees’ Minor League Player of the Year Award.


Austin’s can hit for both average and power. He has hit over .300 for several teams, levels, and seasons in his minor league career. He has a career AB/HR of just under 35, showing good signs of power. He played the majority of his games in right field, where he had a .981 fielding percentage, as well as showing off a strong arm. He has also played some time at first and third, doing better at first with a .994 fielding percentage over 43 games.


Austin’s real problem is that he has not been able to reproduce his 2012 success. Part of the blame goes to a thumb injury, which he has struggled to overcome. His average dropped to .257 in Trenton, where he spent the entire 2013 season, and his OPS dropped to .717. Austin did a little better in 2014, getting his average up to .275, but his OPS still stayed at a modest .756. If he is going to make it to Scranton and the Bronx, the Yankees need to see him return to his 2012 form.


Look for the Yankees to be paying close attention to his time in the batter’s box. They need to see Tyler Austin making good contact with the ball, and driving it for power. His abilities with the glove have not been in question, so he may not get much attention in the field. He was on the 2015 plan, but that may be pushed back to 2016. Austin still has things to prove, that he is not a 1-season wonder. The fact that the Yankees have better options in both right field and at first base may buy him another season. Nevertheless, it will be fun to see if he breaks out for the Yankees in March. Wishing you the best of luck, Tyler!
