Gardner digs his way into Yanks lineup

brett2Brett Gardner has won the starting CF Job with the NY Yankees. This was a forgone conclusion in most peoples minds considering how Melky Cabrera stunk up the place last year. So bad in fact that he was sent down to Scranton to reobtain his Mojo. Melky’s only advantage is that he is a switch hitter and has a strong throwing arm. He runs poor routes and is very inconsistent at the plate.

Gardner was on fire at the end of last season and has carried that over into what could only be called a brilliant spring. Gardner brings speed to the bottom of the order and will probably torture pitchers on the base paths all season. He has great base stealing skills and is very aware on the base pads turning singles into doubles and double into triples. Hes aggressive and will make the other teams throw a strike to beat his incredible speed.

If you haven’t noticed I’m a big fan of Brett Gardner. I’m a big fan of anyone who can run like him. Don’t get me wrong hes no Ichiro Suzuki but if he hits .280 and steals 50 bases this year than he was worth the risk.
