Probably won't be able to do much if any hitting this year, but if he can just be on the roster as a pinch runner he adds a lot.
What a shame
Him, Cano, and Granderson were the only ones who showed up last postseason
Wish he could stay healthy...
Im saying....he dosnt steal bags when its necessary. He dosnt have the confidence to swipe a bag when the Yankees need a guy on 2nd.
He is a good baserunner, a good fielder, and an average bat. It would be good to get him back, but lets not rush him back to he can be a pinch runner. The yankees have a team filled with spot type guys.
You're talking about a guy who has stolen over 45 bases in each of the last two seasons. Maybe he's not Ricky Henderson, but to act like he's not a serious threat on the basepaths is insane.
And by the way, he's arguably the best outfielder in baseball. He adds a lot to the team without even picking up a bat.
firstly, that's a single example with Roberts -- secondly, while I don't know that he actually DID so, at least Roberts COULD bat and COULD field (in the sense that he wasn't physically unable to -- it sounds like Gardner can't be expected to do ANYTHING else but pinchrun) -- thirdly, Gardner is fast, but he's NOT a real good basestealer -- he's NOT "instinctive" and doesn't just GO on first move/first pitch, instead he spends too much time trying to "read" the pitcher -- finally, Roberts wasn't coming off of forever on the DL
to bring Gardner aboard for just a pinch-run in the post-season IS a wasted roster spot
oh, you must be SOooooo disappointed with your "great prediction" about how people were going to stay away in droves from my GDT a week or so ago -- the post count was virtually identical (just a touch over 900) when the last out was recorded in the 9th as the GDT that was hosted the night before by vivjeter (I think -- it was SOMEBODY who you said was a GOOD GDT host who doesn't scare away posters)
try again, clown
a whole triple digits in posts and still not banned yet again -- too bad they don't track IP addresses so that you can't just resurface from the sewers with yet another "reserved-in-advance" screenname
cactus are know as being prickly -- you fit the first 5 letters of that screenname to a "T"
being like the way that a cactus is (first 5 letters)? you accomplish that with ALL your posts -- so, your mission of being disliked is always mission accomplished
oh, I'm Cacti (amongst scores of previously banned names) -- I'm such a nice, agreeable guy -- it HAS to be everybody else (including the Mods) who are WRONG about me, such that I'm part of the "Ban of the Month Club"
Didn't you chastise me yesterday for paying attention to post count? Why yes! Yes you did!!
The horror of duplicity rears its ugly head. Again.
