His name ain’t chump, it’s Cody Ransom


Okay, so maybe he’s not leaping a car in a single bound, but Cody Ransom’s got some ups. My sincere hope now is that after Ransom officially beats out Berroa for the utility infielder job, he goes up to him and says: “You see Angel, it’s like this. You either smoke or you get smoked…And you got smoked.”

    Pfffft. I can do that.

    Here’s the camera facing him:

    definitely on PEDs…

  4. anonymous says:

    Thats useful.

  5. A.D. says:

    Well we got our pinch jumper for the season

  6. A.D. says:

    Well we know AJAX would run the point, and Brackman would be our big man for the Yankees basketball team. Looks like Ransom could be the swing man, we’ll see how his shot is.

  7. Artist formerly known as 'The' Steve says:

    That could come in handy . . . . . in just about every other sport except Baseball.

  8. Matt says:

    Move him to CF. He could just jump the wall and catch every potential homer.

  9. Kevin G. says:

    He could probably jump over Pedroia

  10. Jamal G. says:

    I don’t know the exact dimensions of those Snapple vending machines, but my friend can get his feet to the top of one in a jump. Unfortunately, we couldn’t actually see if he can jump on it because the space between the roof and the vending machine was too small.

  11. The Evil Empire says:

    I seriously believe I can do that too.

  12. Matt '09 says:

    Let me preface this by saying I am impressed and I obviously could not do it, but let’s face it, it’s not like a jump from a stand still, he got a bit of a start…I mean, it’s not like he jumped out of 3 feet of water…
    NFL Draft Prospect Jarron Gilbert

    either way, I am impressed by Mr. Ransom, and fully expect him to be with the club when they break camp.

    holy balls. should’ve been a skateboarder.

  14. UNION YES. says:

    Didn’t Joey Gathright jump over Hiroki Kuroda last ST?

  15. I wonder if every Yankee blog had this up or just all of them. I’m halfway expecting to see it on SportsCenter soon.

  16. Ben K. says:

    Nate Robinson and Ransom should have a jump-off.

  17. [...] went hitless in three at-bats, but he managed to throw Scott Rolen out at third with an assist from Cody Ransom’s leaping skills. Hideki Matsui and Nick Swisher went a combined 0-for-7, leaving a total of eight runners on base. [...]
