I was at a spring training game in Tampa against the pirates and the crowd at legends field gave Tino a huge ovation when he was introduced. Tino is one of those guys that the yanks fan love I think.


One of the loudest ovations I've ever heard at Yankee Stadium was when Tino hit two home runs....when he was playing for St. Louis. Yeah, we love him.

Actually, I think he got replaced by Nick Johnson. That was after hitting 34 jacks with 113 RBI's in 2001. Funny, I don't think Nick put up better numbers than that in '02!

But I would agree that he might be playing like he's got a chip on his shoulder. That's also why I like Mike Cameron this year (shameless plug). With all the Beltran at CF BS, along with Victor Diaz playing well as his fill-in, I think this guy is going to continue to kill the ball all season.


:-?

No, it was Giambi. Not Nick Johnson. :-P

Giambi had a good year then.

Unfortunately Nick Johnson is playing well now as he was expected to. Nick Johnson for Randy Johnson (essentially the trade) isn't too bad though :-°

Giambi was very good that year, better than Tino was in 2001 or 2002. I loved Tino and hated to see him go but you can't fully fault the Yankees for getting Giambi at the time. He gave them 41-120-.314 that year I believe.

The :-P was in response to Nick Johnson. While Johnson is a pretty good player, that would've been my face if we replaced Tino with him. I'm 100% thrilled that we got Tino back, he was the only change I wanted to make to the offense heading into the offseason. And it's paying divedends right now.
