It’s nice to day hello…

Take away his first 18 games this season, and Brett Gardner is a .356/.438/.521 hitter. That’s since April 26, a fairly significant sample size of 52 games and 146 at-bats. In the past 11 games, Gardner has hit a Major League-best .472, and since June 7 he has more walks than strikeouts and an on-base percentage well above .500.
Next to Nancy Newman’s perky blouse brothers, Brett Gardner just may be the best home-grown “ain’t nothing wrong with” thing in Yankeeland these days.
