With Jorge Posada back from the DL, the Yankees have a circular lineup again. Through Tuesday’s victor over the Orioles the Yankees have been busting out the following lineup:
Expect a more complete picture from Alex by the end of the month. His depressed numbers are due more to April than anything else, when he hit a weak .250/.337/.440. In May he beefed up his stats to the tune of .330/.408/.534. The major difference between this season and a typical A-Rod line is one of those crazy weeks when he explodes for four homers. I’ve heard many analysts argue that Alex looks just about set to do that, but he hasn’t yet. Hopefully the explosion comes in June.
y, one directly a result of playing his position. No matter how you slice it, as Jorge ages he will need to get more reps in as a DH. Now is a time for him to embrace that role because the Yankees don’t have a regular DH yet.
No comparisons to seasons past can be made for Tex anymore. This is unprecedented for his entire career, even including his mediocre rookie season when he hit .259/.331/.480, and in that season his best two months were May and June.
