If somebody thinks batting average and strikeouts are the most important measures of hitting, they have no right to call anybody dumb.

I thought he did, but Billy Beane signed him. That means Cust is really super special awesome, but none of us mortals can see why.

When the Yankees dont make the playoffs they look to a scapegoat.

Last year after a poor season it was Torre.
Now this guy is calling for Cashmans head.

Just wait on it.

This is all coming from someone who called a 28 yo 'passed his prime'.

What I ment by 28 is...
He has passed his climbing state and is going to start to plateau.
Most players peak age is 27.
I honestly think Swisher will peak at 25 homers. Thats it.

Swisher was incredibly unlucky last year. This was a solid buy low by the Yanks.
