There, I said it. It had to be said. Everybody wants to say it but no one's saying it... Why?
Chris Dickerson into the mix
makes a helluva lot of sense.
Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki roaming their outfield. That works for speed and some power and
men getting on base (Gardy and Ichiro are like 2 lead off guys) but on
that day that one needs a rest, throw Dickerson in there. There is no
question he has the passion to play and will contribute quite well if
Dickerson will never be a superstar, but he will do his best and that's
all I ask for. He did in Cincinnati with the Reds and he did in
Milwaukee. Dickerson has great instincts, is a good base runner to
boot, alittle speed and just needs a shot, like Francisco Cervelli and
Austin Romine as catcher, but that's another post for another time.
Look, there is no doubt given the high standard of Yankee play,
Dickerson could shine getting enough at bats and playing time while
giving the others a day off here and there.
Raul Ibanez to be more of a DH than
outfielder any way (read HERE), it works out perfectly.
Do it Yanks, keep Dickerson in the mix, I will bet a lot comes out of
it, plus, it falls in line with you guys holding onto every dollar you
have real tight.
