How hard is it to find a first baseman?

By

With that out in the 4th inning, Andy Phillips is now 0 for his last 10, 1 for his last 13, 2 for 16 and 3 for his last 28. That’s .107. Can someone just step it up at first for the Yanks this year? It’s going to end up killing them.

    Okay, its just the frustration boiling over now, but I must ask, is Corey Patterson the best player on the planet? He is never not on base and steling against the Yanks. If someone told me Corey Patterson was batting .750 with 70 SBs against the Yanks over the past 2 seasons, I’d believe them.

    It’s very hard to find a first baseman, because the first base in Yankee Stadium is cursed since Tino Martinez left.

    It took away Giambi’s glove, and spit out Andy Phillips and Minky.

    cano is also a magnificent fielder, its just second base is under the curse of chuck knoblauch. and damon cant throw b/c of the curse of bernie williams.

    “The Curse of… oh, let’s say, Clay Bellinger:
    It has been 2483 days, 14 hours, 7 minutes, and 9 seconds since the New York Yankees have won a World Series.”

    Cano is a very good fielder

    Corey Patterson is hitting .389/.452/.583 against the Yanks this year with 5 SB in 36 At bats

    Wilson Betemit / Shelley Duncan platoon is a answer so obvious that Joe can’t possibly figure out. for the season, Betemit ‘s OPS = Canos, and his OPS from the left side has something between Adam Dunn and David Ortiz written on it. (just look at the numbers Ortiz put up at age 25 compare it with Betemit’s Dodger numbers) and they should just forget about him hitting from the right side and throw up Shelley whenever a lefty shows up, and if they fear for Shelley’s glove (a legitimate concern) throw in Phillips in the final few inning for good measure.
