      It’s already happening in the comments sections of various Yankees-related websites. I would think a few more failures in key spots in home games would do it, if he doesn’t get going.

      I’ve had a hard time warming to Big Tex. Dude’s getting paid like a league superstar and bats in the prime spot in the order. Don’t like his pull everything/uppercut approach. He gets hot for 2 weeks then disappears for a month and a half. I keep thinking….Dave Kingman.

      He gets paid to produce runs and I think he’s done that driving in 67 and scoring 53. If it wasn’t for that stupid shift everyone does his avg. would be a lot higher. Its easy to sit here and say he should try to poke the ball to the left side when hes hitting but that’s not who he is and its not easy to change who you are when you’ve been doing the same thing your whole career.
