San Diego Padres: Gyorko’s steady rebound

Jedd Gyorko’s finding his offensive groove again. There were a lot of happy fans when the San Diego Padres signed Jedd Gyorko to a five-year extension last year after his very promising rookie season. Gyorko, orginally a third baseman, made the seamless transition to second base, and the Padres suddenly had themselves a cornerstone to build around. Gyorko hit .249/.301/.444 his...

San Diego Padres: Yangervis Solarte’s hot start

Yangervis Solarte Super utility player Yangervis Solarte has emerged as a reliable source of offense as the San Diego Padres grow more and more impatient with second baseman Jedd Gyorko. I’ll write about the Gyorko situation with greater detail and analysis in a different article, but it’s a situation that can’t be ignored anymore. As Gyorko’s struggled to live up to the...

Padres third base coach Glenn Hoffman takes foul ball right off buttocks (video)

Your browser does not support iframes. With the San Diego Padres announcers later saying, “That’s gotta hurt,” and that he utilized his “old rusty-dusty” — whatever that means — to protect himself, Padres third base coach Glenn Hoffman had little time to do anything except turn away and bear the brunt when Yangervis Solarte rocketed […] The post Padres third base...

Fantasy Baseball: Impact of the Chase Headley trade

On Tuesday, July 22, the San Diego Padres agreed to send third baseman Chase Headley to the New York Yankees in exchange for utility man Yangervis Solarte and minor-league pitcher Rafael De Paula; the Yankees also received $1,000,000 in salary relief. Currently, the New York Yankees sit just three games above .500 at 51-48; however, they are just three and a half games behind the...

Did our attempted Juju Intervention doom Yangervis?

Two weeks ago, after the Evils botched their third straight series, we - the collective psychotic insurgency of the Yankiverse - called for an International Juju Intervention, seeking to rescue this kitten-like team from the dangerous tree branch onto which it had shinnied. The game against KC was rained out, seemingly throttling our plans, in the way a Vidal Nuno start does a party...

Where Has Yangervis Solarte Been These Last Few Years?

Yangervis has proven his worth for the boys in Pinstripes The New York Yankees are known for spending big bucks on baseball’s best players in order to win championships, but with age, injuries, and inconsistency, they must find their answers deep inside the farm system. One of those lucky players is Yangervis Solarte, who hadn’t swung a bat in the majors until this season...

New York Yankees Go Around The Horn For Triple Play

New York Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte is quietly becoming a mainstay for the Bronx Bombers with his consistent bat to start the 2014 season. However, this time around Solarte did it with his glove starting the 5-4-3 around the horn triple-play in the second inning of the Yankees tilt with the Tampa Bay Rays. Even more ironic than the rare feat is that C.C. Sabathia has...

John sings the IT IS HIGH people's choice: "Sol-arte... whoa-oh..."

Today, as it was called by our commentators a week ago, The Master literally sang to Yangervis Solarte.  From ceeja: Let the record reflect that the Jedi mind trick perpetrated by Ken of Brooklyn and yours truly has worked. After doubling in a run in the bottom of the fourth, Sterling launched into song: "Solarte, Whoa Whoa"  UNBELIEVABLE.

"Yangervis Yangs one?" Holy crap! John may need a home run call for Yangervis Solarte

Last week, the implications of the Yangervis ("The Yangee Gervis") Solarte ending the Lost Era of Nuni and making the trip to Houston slipped through my John Sterling Consciousness Simulator. (Of course, I was in Norway, eating dried cod strips, so the simulator wasn't running at its top, Compuserve/Windows 95 speed.) I never fathomed the possibility of Solarte actually playing...

Ryan out, Yangervis marches on... But who spells Jeet when Jeet's feet feel jitty?

Uh-oh. Didn't see that coming...In December, when the Eve-Emp snagged Brendan Ryan for two years, we figured he was golden in the field, the perfect defensive replacement for Derek Jeter, and if he ever hit a single, we'd book a banquet hall and serve cheesecake. So what if he channeled Chico Escuela. (Pictured) He had the glove.Now, they're saying pinched nerve in the back.Five...
