• Replacing Gardner

    The Yankees recalled right handed pitcher Cody Eppley to take Brett GardnerĎs place on the active roster after the speedy outfielder was placed on the 15 day disabled list, meaning that, in the near term, the Yankees will be carrying 13 pitchers with a three man bench. In general Iím not a fan of that alignment, but at the moment I can certainly see the logic behind it. The Yankeesí bullpen has been getting a lot of work in over the teamís first 12 games, especially the front end guys like Cory Wade, Clay Rapada, and David Phelps, and with 9 games in 10 days against the Red Sox, Rangers, and Tigers after the Yankees finish up with the Twins tonight, things donít figure to get any easier on the pitching staff before the end of the month. Under those circumstances, adding an arm to the bullpen is certainly a logical choice.

    If you accept the fact that by "rich man's John Olerud", he'd have had at least as good of a career slash as Olerud did, and that Johnson's

    Not more than borderline. Remember all the super-powerful guys who were playing 1b during his career, especially in the AL. He would have had a tough
