• What To Do With Kevin Russo?

    Posted by on May 25th, 2010 · Comments (2)

    Scott Cacciola recently did a nice feature on Kevin Russo.

    I really like Russo, for some reason, and want to see him do well. But, I suspect, with the Yankees, Russo will be a utility player/super-sub at best. And, Russo’s not getting any younger. So, I’m torn – as part of me wants to see this kid as a Yankee, because I like him; and, the other part of me wants to see him get traded to a team like the Pirates, Astros, Rockies, Cardinals or Padres so that he can play every day, again, because I like him.

    I have little doubt that, if given the chance, Kevin Russo could be a solid defender at second base, bat .280, and be a great #2 hitter, in the major leagues. And, with the Yankees, he’ll never get that chance.

      Just heard Randy Winn was DFA’d with Granderson’s activation.
