Game 48. Lineup, stats and comments.

Boesch back for the injured Granderson. The only thing is, Boesch was hitting about .179 at AAA after being sent down, after hitting .205 with the Yanks.

The Yanks have a tough row to hoe today. They’ll be facing the Rays’ Matt Moore, who is 8-0, 2.29 in 9 starts. (Hey, he’s got to lose sometime, right?) Vidal Nuno will start for the Yanks. It’ll be just his fourth MLB game and second MLB start.

The Yanks are 29-18, 1st place in the A.L. East by one game over Boston, two in the loss column. The Yanks are two games better than their Pythagorean record (expected record based on runs scored vs. runs allowed). They have an OPS+ of 95 and an ERA+ of 119. Average is 100, so you can see that the pitching is carrying them.

BA/HR/RBI  SB/attempts  OPS+  Comments  Team Leader
* League Leader.   

Gardner CF .254-4-18  9/12  96   surprising pop so far
Cano 2B .291-13-34  2/2  138   no regular (min. 140 p.a) over .300
Wells LF .278-10-24  4/6  118
Hafner DH .270-8-24  2/2  147

Even though it’s against a lefty, Hafner gets the nod. Hey, better him than Ben Francisco, who is like a forgotten man right now just taking up roster space. But then, I’ve screamed all week long about bringing up Thomas Neal (righty hitting corner OF, 25, hitting .340-0-18 at SWB, hit .314-12-51, 11 SB for Cleveland’s AA Akron in 2012, hit 5 for 23 for Cleveland last year ) to replace Francisco, who is 5 for 44,
.114-1-1, OPS+ 11.

Adams 3B .323-2-3  0/0  144

This will be Adams 9th MLB game, and he already is hitting fifth. He is 10 for 31.

Suzuki RF .238-2-8  5/6  62

Unfortunately, Granderson’s injury means that Ichiro sees more playing time when it looked like he would be relegated to 4th OF/PR/Defensive specialist status. The BA, OBA (.276), OPS+ are all way below Ichiro’s norm, and you wonder if age (39) is catching up with him. A .321 career MLB hitter, OPS+ 112 with 2641 MLB hits (and many more in the Japanese leagues before coming to the U.S.), he’s only .273, OPS+ 87 since 2010.

Nix SS .231-1-11  3/3  66
Overbay 1B .255-7-27  0/0  101
Romine C .129-0-2  0/0  (-6)
Yes, that’s a MINUS six. Romine is 4 for 31 his year with 12 strikeouts. For his career, he is 7 for 50 in 21 games, .140-0-2, with 17 strikeouts (OPS+ MINUS four). He’s just 24, shows promise defensively, but that bat has to come around. Otherwise, we are talking 1987 Joel Skinner http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/skinnjo01.shtml here.    

Nuno LHP See Above.   1-1, 1.13 in 8 MLB innings. ERA+ 391.
