As you all know, All-Star Week is a pretty slow week for baseball news and with the passing of The Boss, there’s not a whole lot worth talking about in terms of baseball/the Yankees. Instead of going real in depth, I’m just gonna run through the Yankee players and say what I’d like to see them do after the break is over:
Jorge Posada: Stay healthy. The Yankee backstop has been banged up a few times, including a 15 day DL trip, but has produced (.369 wOBA) when he’s been on the field. The more he can play behind the plate and stay in the lineup, the better.
Francisco Cervelli: Keep the walk rate respectable. Frankie’s been really cold of late, but his walk rate has managed to stay pretty decent. If it can stay at 8.2%, and hopefully get better, he won’t be a no-pop auto out at the plate anymore.
Mark Teixeira: Stay hot. Tex’s numbers are getting back to where they should be (.254/.360/.465/.825, .361 wOBA for the season) and in his last 30 games, Tex has hit .322/.406/.626/1.032.
Robinson Cano: Keep it up. He’s been pretty consistent all year. It’s probably asking a lot for him to keep up this career year, but if he can just hit at his current pace the rest of the way, he could win MVP.
Alex Rodriguez: Get hot. We haven’t seen him get really hot this year and I think we’re all waiting for him to unleash the fury. Hopefully, it comes soon.
Derek Jeter: More power. Jeter’s SLG is at .392 right now and his IsoP is at .118.
Brett Gardner: Like Cano, keep it up. What he’s doing is beyond anything we could’ve expected.
Curtis Granderson: Find a groove. Curtis has been unable to find a groove all season and his numbers reflect that. Hopefully, Curtis comes out of the break swinging a hot bat.
Nick Swisher: Also, keep it up. He’s having a career year. Keep doin’ what you’re doin’.
CC Sabathia/Andy Pettitte: Continue to be anchors.
Phil Hughes: Mix your pitches more.
A.J. Burnett: Watch tapes of Game Two of the 2009 World Series and repeat.
Javy Vazquez: I’d love to see him get some damn run support for once!
Bullpen (non-Mo Division): Do your usual second half thing. I’d like to see Jonathan Albaladejo and Romulo Sanchez get extended looks while saying goodbye to Chad Gaudin and Chan Ho Park.
