    A-Rod is slugging .394 so far this spring.

    Yeah, it’s only Spring Training. But, in the same Spring Training, Aaron Hicks is slugging .500. And, Brian McCann is slugging .484. Starlin Castro is at .657 as of this morning. Heck, even Austin Romine is higher than A-Rod, albeit barely, at .400.

    Oh, and, let’s not forget this is the A-Rod who slugged .383 in his last 227 PA of 2015.

    A-Rod has one job on this team: To Slug. He doesn’t play the field…at all.

    It’s sort of a wasted roster spot to have a guy who is only there to hit, and not field whatsoever, if the guy doesn’t hit, right?

    So, if it’s May 30th 2016 and A-Rod is slugging a sub four hundred, will the Yankees pluck him from the roster and say “Bye, bye!” to Mr. Rodriguez? After all, it’s about winning, no? And, you can’t carry dead weight on your roster and win.

    Los Yanquis?

    I just read that, over the calendar year of 2015, the Yankees signed more talent from outside the United States — 57 players in all — than any team in baseball.

    I assume most of them were from Latin American countries.

    Opening Day is not far away.  Are you excited?

    No, I don’t mean are you excited for baseball.  What I mean is…are you excited for YANKEES baseball?

    Does this current Yankees team and/or their chances thrill you?  Be honest.

    Looks like no one wants this year, huh?

    Nice guy.  Hard worker.  Bad fielder.  Not much power – in reality.  Under contract for 2 more years after 2016.

    Happy with this, Yankees fans?

    2015 Was The First Time In Over 20 Years Where I Did Not Attend A Yankees Game

    Posted by on March 1st, 2016 · Comments (6)

    This morning, I just realized it.

    I had season tickets from 2001 through 2014.  So, if I was to go last year, I would have needed to buy a single game on its own.

    In any event, this morning, I was trying to remember the last time I did not make a trip to Yankee Stadium during the season.   And, I can remember being there for particular games – for sure – prior to being a season ticket holder.  Recalling those, I suspect that it was probably the early 90’s where I went a full season and never got to a game.  Maybe it was 1994?  If not, it was around that time…at least 20 years ago, maybe more?

    The better question may be:  When will I attend a Yankees game in person again?
