      Damn this team is maddening to watch! I’m sorry I just cannot give credit to the pitcher every single night especially the ones we used to regularly beat up on. Your exactly right Steve – they stink.

      The sad part is, I don’t see them getting much better when Jeter and Granderson come back.

      BABIP should indicate that they’ve been a little unlucky on balls in play, except they don’t seem to hit a lot of line drives and deep flies that are run down in the gaps.

      Last night’s Lorenzo Cain fielding display not withstanding.

      By the way, the Royals are right there with the Yanks in runs allowed this year, and their improved defense is a big reason why. Royals are 8th in Park Adjusted Team Defensive Efficiency (Yanks are 11th, by the way, and this should go down a little when Jeter is back.)

      They should stick Jeter at DH as often as they can.

      If A-Rod gets suspended, shouldn’t they ask Jeter to play third?
      I know they won’t, and he won’t, but, it would be interesting if they did.

      I’d rather have Jeter at 3B, even ‘tho he has no power, than have Cruz, Nix or Adams at 3B, with Jeter at SS, again, assuming that A-Rod is toast.
