      If A-Rod had not spent so much time on the DL, he would have made this list too.

      That’s the issue with the Yankees line-up these days. Tex, A-Rod, Granderson and Ibanez can have nights where they are very cold. And, when it all happens at once, it leaves it up to basically Jeter, Cano and Swisher to get the job done.

      Except that’s simply bullshit.

      Since 2008, games with 4+ AB and zero hits:

      1) Robinson Cano, 93 games
      2) Derek Jeter, 89 games
      3) Alex Rodriguez, 87 games

      Obviously Jeter, Rodriguez and Cano are the three longest-tenured hitters in the lineup at this point so it stands to reason that the three would be ahead of the pack (Teixeira (in only three full seasons plus one week!) is fourth with 84 such games and Swisher is fifth with 60 such games).

      It’s remarkable that you immediately single out Rodriguez and posit that it would be Jeter (and Cano and Swisher) that would be left to “get the job done” when it looks like Jeter compiles as many “of’fers” as Rodriguez does.

      @ MJ Recanati:

      See the above. Jeter is not the Yankees problem, offensively.

      Neither is Rodriguez.

      Since 2008:

      Jeter (596 G) – 215 multi-hit (36% of all games), 89 hitless (15%)

      Rodriguez (503 G) – 146 multi-hit (29%), 87 hitless (17%).

      You’re not doing a good job to convince me that Rodriguez is any more or less a problem than Jeter. And, to be perfectly clear, I never said Jeter was a problem. I simply said that Rodriguez isn’t the problem you made him out to be.

      And, really, since when is simple batting average the way to calculate someone’s contribution to an offense? Give me Jeter’s and Rodriguez’s RCAA since 2008 if you want to really look at who’s helping the offense.

      I never said that A-Rod, alone, was the problem. More so, it’s having a bunch of guys, A-Rod, Tex, Granderson, who are terrible when they go cold, being the problem.

      Guys,
      Tex is our problem. Somewhat mitigated by sterling glove work, but over the past 2 years he’s making out too often, not hitting in the clutch, and his OBP should be a lot higher, closer to the .400 he had in 07,08,09, not ~ .350 like in the past two years. If he gets on base at a .400 clip and approaches his career average OPS of ~.900, barring other major injuries and roughly average years from the others, we’ll likely win the division.

      Damn! J-Roll, Ryan Howard and Hunter Pence. No wonder they want all that pitching.
