Weren't you going crazy over Cano about a month ago, saying how great of a player he was, and that he had the number 2 spot locked up? I guess that changed pretty quickly...
Suggesting Tony Womack should play based on 3 starts is insanity. The guy is terrible. In every facet. He's not near the same player as Matt Lawton or Bernie Williams. He's not in either of their leagues, even with Bernie's declining skill. You're complaining about giving up a single-A pitching prospect that nobody has ever heard of for a guy that can really help the team? Give me a break.
That RBI double just now is why Matsui should hit 2nd.
I dont think one at bat should determine the batting order.
In my personal opinion, I find the Yankees batting order to be much more dangerous with Matsui batting in the 2 hole than it ever had been before.
I'm not saying he shouldnt bat 2nd. Just that one at bat should not determine the batting order. He hasnt even seen lawton hit as a yankee.
NO ONE has. You willing to let him hit second having never seen him is the exact same thing as me not willing to have him hit second.
I hope he suceeds but I'm not willing to just give him the 2nd spot right now.
