    Yes, it’s just Spring Training.  And, yes, it’s early.  But, at what point does this become a more serious matter?

      I think it’s a little concerning only because he’s hit the ball with authority once in the games I’ve seen him play. The rest are weak ground balls. Kinda reminds me of watching Ichiro.

      Leave it to Brian Cashman to have a 40-year old $6.5 million fifth outfielder… Another MLB first.

      @ Mr. October: You’re forgetting that Cashman didn’t want Ichiro, pretty well known, and discussed.

      @ KPOcala:
      I’m so ashamed of myself…

      I knew Brian Cashman didn’t want to sign Suzuki for two years, but I should have known better to take the time to completely spell that out… Little Brian Cashman was the Senior Vice President and general moron who decided to not sign Beltran in the 2011-2012 offseason, and to exercise an option on Swisher instead to play right field and bring Swisher’s postseason greatness (.169 BAVG “at the time”) back for the 2012 season…

      Cashman was the general moron when the new CBA was negotiated in 2011 and responsible for reducing the team’s payroll from $230 million to “only” the second-highest payroll in MLB at $189 million by 2014 and fielding a “championship-caliber” teams from 2012 through 2014…

      Cashman traded for Suzuki (or at least we think he did from behind the Byzantine corporate structure of the New York Yankees in 2012), and Cashman didn’t want to re-sign Suzuki for two years in the 2012-13 offseason, but nonetheless, in 2014, the team that Cashman is the Senior Vice President and general moron of has a 40-year old $6.5 million fifth outfielder in Suzuki with Cashman having signed the same Carlos Beltran in the 2013-14 offseason at the age of 37 to play right field through the age of 40 too…

      Did we know in the 2012-13 offseason whether or not Friedman wanted to trade Shields for Myers from behind the “Byzantine corportate structure” of the Tampa Bay Rays? Has it become pretty well known, or discussed, since? I might have missed that discussion… Please advise.

      @ Evan3457:That’ll work.

      OPS is now around .400, for those scoring at home.

      It’s heading in the wrong direction.

      It’s a little worrying, but only because he didn’t play last year. If he was coming off 2012, I wouldn’t think anything about it, even at age 39-40.
