Yeah ….very good pickup by CashMan….finally we got someone who can pitch.
Another Jeter regression is his ability to hit in the clutch. 2008 and before he hit over 300 with RISP. 2009 through today he’s only a 250 hitter. And hits into a high amount of double plays.
Hopefully Kuroda is ok he is a guy who should be getting more credit. He has been very solid this year. He has allowed 3 runs or less in 9 of his 12 starts. Still think he is a solid #3 for this team
Yeah Jeter’s range has declined significantly over the years. One way you can tell is remember all those popups he used to catch in LF foul territory by the stands. Hardly ever now.
Hate to say it but when I look at Arod over the last few seasons I’m somewhat reminded of Giambi.
Big bucks stud, steroid slammer, body breakdown……. Left with some HR pop but not much else.
Nunez needs to be brought up for sure if he is healthy. Great bat I can live with the D. Here is a stat for u. Jeter’s UZR is the worst among any position player in MLB, so Jeter is no Ozzie Smith over there despite making the routine plays. I don’t particularly like the UZR stat but that is pretty telling.
I thought he was on the DL, is he playing again?
Regarding Living and dying with the HR.
When will Yankee mgt wake up and bring Nunez back up? His hitting and speed are just what they need to add to Gardner to get the second dimension to their offense.
Matthew B – best point of this string – your comment “the unsustainable awful RISP”. Exactly. The law of numbers dictate that they will return back to the norm. Meaning MUCH better the remainder of the season. Especially for the established good hitters like Cano.
Also the concern that the Yankees can only win when they hit HRs will be lessened to some extent when Gardner returns to the lineup.
