Lyle Overbay is having fun playing with the Yankees.
Overbay is old. And, he has his flaws/limitations as a hitter.
But, to me, he’s one of those guys who you have to watch play everyday to appreciate.
Having seen him now, as a Yankee, for a month, I have grown to like him. He’s a professional. Just the way he goes about his business – and how he looks in his uniform – says “ballplayer.”
He reminds me of a Sid Bream, David Bergman, Jim Spencer type of player.
Overbay will never make the Hall of Fame. And, he’s not a star. But, he’s not going to kill you and can help a winning team. It will be interesting to see how the Yankees handle him when Teixeira comes back…if he comes back.
