I sooo give up on the Yankees. They need to shake stuff up NOW. Trade Shef for a pitcher... or something... please?
1) Tino is a good player....and he happens to be playing veery well right now.
2) They already did "shake stuff up" with that whole "womack/Cano/berenie thing.
2) The Yankees have been playing much better lately. Now would seem like an awfully odd time to "give up" on them.
Tino is solid, but he's at (what should be) one of the biggest power slots on the team. He was a favorite of mine for a long time, but he's getting up there in age and I don't know what he'll do later in the year. I agree he belongs in their lineup, but who DH's now? They just don't have nine solid hitters, it doesn't make sense to me for Giambi to go down right now. His OBP is still okay.
That wasn't a shakeup... that was a minor reshuffling. Does anyone really care if Bernie is in center? The defensive thing is a slight improvement now, but that wasn't exactly the move that is going to turn them around.
They are playing better, but they still have massive holes. If they don't get back some pitching asap, they are going to be in a huge ditch.
Lastly, you have two #2's.
