Melky is an absolutely horrible hitter. His defense does impress me, but his stock is dropping faster than the housing market in Vegas. (he sucks)
After watching Gardner for a few games, he looks totally over-matched at the plate. Let's hope all he needs is an adjustment period because I really like his speed and his arm. (I like the effort and attitude he shows as well)
Now the good.....
Ponson. What can you say...six strong innings today. That makes 2 out of 3 quality starts. I'll take that from my #5. Cashman gets props for taking the risk. (I think we are getting the performance that many GMs have always believed this guy could produce )
The Bullpen. Shaping up to be one of the best in the league. Yea I said it...a bullpen with Kyle Farnsworth in it among the best in the league...Pigs are flying. (no doubt, how else can you be 7 games over .500 averaging 2 runs a game?)
Abreu. Professional hitter. (the guy reminds me of Bernie, not the best, but above average in almost all facets of his game)
The CAPTAIN. Won last night's game by himself (ok, he got a little help from his buddy Andy), and scored BOTH runs in today's game. So to review, he is the biggest reason for the Yankees two most important wins of the year. The guy is MONEY! (well, I mean, OK)
