You hate the guy so much but have nothing to say when they play horrible without him. Typical.
Face it, they need him in this lineup.
Can you atleast admit he's one of the best 3b in the game and he makes the Yanks better?
It's the pitching that's losing these games.
Chavez, in his 10 games since ARod was injured, has batted .321 with 2 HRs and 6 RBI and has been stellar in the field. That's about what we probably would've gotten from Alex in that span, if he was still playing.
But our starters and relievers have faltered, more than the hitting.
I'll be glad to see Alex back in the lineup, since Chavez is not an every day player anymore.
They're missing him....
Granderson - .176 average (dropped from .249 to .240) with 18 K’s and 4 BB’s. 35% of outs come on K’s and getting on base 23.6% of the time. He has 2 HR's and 8 RBI. Hitting a home run 3.9% of the time. Prior to Alex going down he was batting .249 with 116 K’s and 54 BB’s...31% of outs coming on K’s. and getting on base 34.8% of the time. 27 HR's and 54 RBI. Hitting a home run 7.3% of the time.
Cano - .275 average (dropped form .320 to .313) with 5 K's and 1 BB. 9.8% of outs come on K's and getting on base 32.1% of the time. He has 2 HR's and 8 RBI. Hitting a home run 3.9% of the time.

Teixeira - .194 average (dropped form .262 to .255) with 13 K's and 4 BB's (3 BB's in one game). 36.1% of outs come on K's and getting on base 26.8% of the time. He has 1 HR and 5 RBI.

Hitting a home run 5.6% of the time.
Basically...I see Tex and Grandy striking out a ton. And Cano just putting balls in play, but not very well hit. All in all, these 3 have combined for 5 home runs. I think Albert had 5 home runs last series. This is where Alex is being missed. These 3 are pressing and they are pressing hard. They are also not getting pitched to the same because opposing pitchers feel the hole in the line up as well...with the way these guys are swinging at everything, why throw them fastballs? Especially when Alex is nowhere around...
"Where are all the A-Rod haters now?"
On the DL...the Delusional List
It makes you wonder why Girardi had Grandy leading off in the first place. It's inexcusable when you have Jeter AND Ichiro on the team.
Past two nights Girardi left Nova and Hughes in too long. Now he pulls our "ace" CC too soon. Worst baseball instincts I've ever seen.
"Cano suffers because he gets nothing to swing at."
I looked back at the box scores, and Cano, for almost every game, batted BEHIND ARod in the lineup. So your statement really doesn't apply, does it? He would have to have been batting in front of him for your statement to make sense.
