    2010 Ramiro "Niño" Pena Performance Thread

    good game in his first start of the year. 2 RBIs w/ the bases loaded and 2 out.

    I believe the fact that the Yankee vets warmly accepted Pena and Cervelli last ST and didn't treat them like they were nothing because they were kids has gone a long way to make them feel comfortable and I do think that that accounts, at least in part, for their success.

    Pena picked up Swish with that hit; this team does that all the time...remarkable.

    if cervelli played infield, he'd be pena !! both cut of the same cloth, great attitude, very solid D, and surprisingly decent and clutch at the plate.

    Defensive clinic and good showing with the bat.

    Keep this up and he could be Jeter's heir apparent in 4 or 5 years.

    Lonnnngggg way off but one can dream.

    If he turns out to be good enough to be Jeter's replacement, he won't be on our bench for 4 or 5 years.

    Unless we sign Jeter to 4 or 5 years like we probably will.

    ??? You think the Yankees would keep a player that can be an elite SS on their bench in his youth?

    He would be traded or Jeter would be let go.

    If we had a young Cal Ripken on the bench Jeter would still be here. Not a dig by the way, just Jeter is an exception.

    he's the exception NOW. And seemingly forever. But nothing is forever.
    Don't we have a hot shot shortstop in the minors that they think is the future? I've not seen Pena described as more than a very good utility player type outlook.

    Nope. We have nothing in AAA, AA, or single A. Unless Hanley Ramirez becomes available (which I think is very unlikey since he signed a team friendly long term contract), Jeter will continue to remain the Yankee SS.

    Perhaps you're thinking of Eduardo Nunez, who is a pretty marginal prospect. I agree with ppa79, we don't really have any decent shorstop prospects (unless you're a fan of Nunez, which many on this forum are). And yes, Pena is a utility player.

    Hanley Ramirez is gonna be on the block in a year or two if history is any guide.

    I don't know about that -- they got slapped around by the union and had to spend money this year. His contract is still pretty reasonable, and they'd probably just have to spend it someplace else if they don't keep him

    I'm watching Yankees Encore now ... after Peña's two-out, two-RBI single today, Kay commented, "In his career now with the bases loaded, he's batting .800. Four for five."

    Good game, Ramiro. See you again in a month.

    I guess the thread I created last year wasn't so OTT after all. This kid is going to be serviceable.

    Pena's reputation was always good field, no hit, but he's really come along with the bat. The kid can play, and if Girardi is smart, he'll use him more often to give Jeter, ARod and Cano some rest.

    I'd expect that as the schedule normalizes and there are fewer off days he is going to play once a week or so and get into games late as a PR or replacement when things get out of hand.

    just like cervelli, he's doing everything that is asked of him. his glove is very good and with timely hits like the other day, he'll be hanging around for sometime. well done ramiro.

    Has played well, despite what looks like some discomfort in his right foot. he's also adapted well enough to a heavy diet of breaking balls

    Russo is a much better hitter. Not sure why the heck he isn't being given a shot.

    Russo is solid in the field though.
