    thought I would never say this but Raul seems to have found a spot and is coming on strong

    I'd like to withdraw every stupid thing I said about not keeping Ibanez in the off season.

    I actually said we should cut Ibanez and keep Maxwell

    He's too much!! 30 hits, 27 RBI, like 1/10th of his hits are homers.
    Nickname him Clutch already
    He'll never get another milestone like that one. So what? His whole career is a milestone. - JL25and3

    I take back all the things I said about Ibanez being washed up. I though he was Randy Winn version 2.0

    Who would have thought that Ibanez would be the least of our problems offensively in 2012. The guy is doing pretty much exactly what he was signed to do.
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    And rather too much of what he wasn't signed to do: play the outfield.

    But his bat has been a most pleasant surprise.

    Low/no scoring game so far -- he's due tonight.

    Oh almost forgot -- happy birthday to him

    Timely hits aside, he hasn't been hitting.

    A .295 OBP. RC+ 95 isn't acceptable for a DH.

    Jim Thome would have been a great replacement, but that ship has sailed.

    Jack Cust would be a solid in-house replacement for Ibanez.

    Cust and Branyan are both mashing in AAA. Surprised neither has gotten a callup.

    I'm suprised Branyan hasn't gotten a call up also. He's raking in SWB, and he has killed it in the past in NYS.

    Assuming both Branyan and Cust will flame out like they always have, suppose we engage Theo in a discussion about what it would take to bring Soriano back as our DH.

    Haven't looked at spray chart, but he's got to lead the Yanks/league in pop/fly outs to the LF corner. Is that an indicator of a slow bat?

    He can't possibly have more of those than Tex has popups to SS.

    I just want to make the simple point that you cannot compare Ibanez with Branyan or Cust without also comparing their defensive positions, especially with Gardner still out.

    With Freddie starting for Andy, the Yankees clearly need the 12 pitchers, which means defensive roles have to be considered for the other 13.

    Cust is an outfielder, no?

    Mariano Rivera was so great he was able to close a Denny's.
