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

Open Thread: Media admits muffing the steroid issue
Statistically, Swisher a clear choice for right field

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.”

    He could jump over me.

  • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

    Pfffft. I can do that.

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Here’s the camera facing him:


  • John

    definitely on PEDs…

  • anonymous

    Thats useful.

    • steve (different one)

      seriously, i can’t see how the ability to jump really high could ever be useful for an infielder

      • anonymous

        I said thats useful!

      • Chris

        When Pedroia tries to break up a double play, Ransom could easily jump over him – even if Pedroia decided not to slide.

        Uhhhh…line drives over his head?

  • A.D.

    Well we got our pinch jumper for the season

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    It’s a shot at Jeter.

      Dammit, I was going to say that.

  • A.D.

    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.

      They’d be better than the Knicks and the Nets combined

      • http://everythingbaseball.wordpress.com Aaron

        We could probably field a team comprised of RAB commenters that would be better than the Knicks and Nets combined.

      PG: AJax
      SG: CJ Henry
      SF: Ransom
      PF: Betances
      C: Brackman

      Not too shabby. I know Henry may not be back with the Yanks, but he was with them long enough that I’ll count him.

  • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

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

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

      Well, it helps if you’re an outfielder.

      Which Ransom is not.

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

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

    He could probably jump over Pedroia

    • anonymous

      How humiliating that would be if a base runner did that to him.

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      This dude could jump over Pedroia:

    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.

    • Drew

      I can jump over a snapple bottle, or case.

  • The Evil Empire

    I seriously believe I can do that too.

    • Mike Pop

      Upload it on youtube and send me a link please.

  • Matt ’09

    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.

    • Mike Pop

      That’s awesome.

  • handtius

    holy balls. should’ve been a skateboarder.


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

  • http://www.bronxbaseballdaily.com Bronx Baseball Daily

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

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Ben K.

    Nate Robinson and Ransom should have a jump-off.
