• Loud Mouths: Yanks Are Ready To Go On A Roll

    Posted by on April 24th, 2009 · Comments (1)

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss where the Yanks are now and what should happen in the immediate future with respect to their results:

    Me? The Yanks have to face the Red Sox, Tigers, Angels, Red Sox again, and Rays over the next two weeks. And, then, soon after that, the Selena Roberts book comes out…

    well, if they’re going to go on a roll, this would be an excellent time to do it.

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss Mark Teixeira and how his signing (anywhere) might impact the Yankees. Here’s the video:

    For what it’s worth, we may find out soon if they’re right.

    Loud Mouths: Sabathia And Beyond

    Posted by on November 26th, 2008 · Comments (1)

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question of what CC Sabathia might do if someone offers him close to what the Yankees have offered (or will offer him) – as well as what the Yanks may do if Sabathia goes somewhere other than the Bronx. Here’s the video:

    For the record, I think Adam Schein is correct on this one.

    And, personally, I’m starting to feel that Sabathia is praying that someone out west will offer him close to “Yankee money” so that he has an excuse to pass on coming to Yankeeland.

    Loud Mouths: Say No To Pettitte

    Posted by on November 6th, 2008 · Comments (1)

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question of Andy Pettitte’s return to the Yankees. Here’s the video:

    Since 1996, who, in all of baseball has the most seasons with 14+ wins and 200+ IP?

    Why…it’s Andy Pettitte, with 10 seasons. (Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux each have 9 such seasons since 1996.) Betcha Pettitte has at least one more 14/200 season in him – and that’s why the Loud Mouths are wrong on this one.

    Can Pavano Help The Yankees?

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question. Here’s the video:

    It’s interesting that the fellas brought Pedro Martinez into the conversation – as Pavano was traded for Pedro way back on November 18, 1997.

    Me? Well…let’s put it this way…what other “better” options do the Yankees have, now, over Pavano? Yeah, I know…it sounds crazy to say that…but, it is the reality of the situation.

    Should Yanks Shut Joba Down For The Season?

    Frank Isola and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question. Here’s the video:

    I have to agree…if it’s true that this season is done, as per Hank, then why risk Chamberlain this year? He should only come back if there’s something to play for…in terms of making it to the post-season.

    Is Damon Yanks Ignitor?

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question. Here’s the video:

    Well, I’ve been saying this for a while now: When Johnny Damon swings the bat well, the Yankees win.

    Let’s just hope that his current situation with an ailing foot doesn’t turn into something major.

    Will Giambi Hit 40 Homers This Season?

    Posted by on June 19th, 2008 · Comments (2)

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question. Here’s the video:

    It’s a good question. The last time Giambi topped 40 taters was 2003. If Jason can play 150 games this season, he should be good for forty. But, if he plays less than 140 games, it’s not going to happen for him. And, it has been a long time since Giambi has been on the field for 150 games in a season. Then again, don’t discount the salary drive factor…

    To C.C., Or Not To C.C., That Is The Question

    Posted by on June 17th, 2008 · Comments (13)

    Brandon Tierney and Scott Ferrall, yesterday on SNY’s WheelHouse; and, Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss whether or not the Yankees should go after C.C. Sabathia (via a trade with the Indians). Here’s the video:

    I’ve already gone on record and shared that I would not sign Sabathia as a Free Agent after this season. However, in terms of having him as a rent-a-player for this year, I would be willing to sing a different tune – especially with Worm Killer Wang now probably done for the season.

    The question is: What are you willing to give up for a half-season of Sabathia plus the draft picks that you’ll get when he walks at year end? I believe that you’re looking at two very good prospects plus someone who can buy some time, now, at the big league level – because Indians’ G.M. Mark Shapiro is a smart cookie.

    It would probably cost the Yankees a package of Ian Kennedy, David Robertson and Dellin Betances to get Sabathia and those draft picks – or something close to that package.

    But, you know what? If I’m the Yankees, and that’s the deal, I would really have to consider pulling the trigger and getting it done.

    Was Hank Behind The Joba Call?

    Posted by on May 23rd, 2008 · Comments (6)

    Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, yesterday on SNY’s Loud Mouths, discuss the question. Here’s the video:

    I went back and checked to see what was reported last month.

    Hank said:

    “I want him as a starter and so does everyone else, including him, and that is what we are working toward and we need him there now.”

    To which Cashman replied:

    “Joba’s staying in the bullpen right now. That’s where we’re at. [Putting him in the rotation is] not something that’s going to happen here early on, and [Hank] knows that. We’ve talked about it. I don’t know what set him off.”

    And, then Hank came back with:

    “It’s all of our intention to try to get him back into the rotation by the end of the year. I’ve addressed it many times, as did Joe (Girardi) and (GM Brian) Cashman. I’m just saying it would be nice to have him there right now. He’s going to be great anywhere we have him but, my preference is as a starter and that’s everybody else’s preference, too.”

    But, then Hank tacked this on too:

    “For someone to suggest that I’m dumb enough to demand that happen [with Chamberlain] now … that really [ticks] me off.”

    So, Hank said Joba was needed in the rotation now. Cashman said it’s not going to happen early. Then Hank shared the team plan was to have him there by the end of the year and that he wasn’t demanding for Joba to start now.

    Well, Adam Schein has a point. It doesn’t sound like moving Joba now was always the team’s plan, does it?

    Kevin Kernan was on SNY’s WheelHouse yesterday and had some more to add on the Hank/Joba topic:
