    Gotta say, it was nice to look at the standings this morning and seeing the Yankees atop the AL East. Thank god, I've been feeling off since opening day, all is right in the world! And Cano with a 1B with a risp. Holy ................e.

    A lot of people were complaining about this being an off year, as recently as a couple weeks ago. They said this was a team they couldn't get excited about.

    It's time to get excited.

    Well - in their defense... It's much easier to get excited about a team that is winning as opposed to when it's losing.

    Ain't that the truth.

    Losing Pineda, Mo and Robertson would devastate most teams. It is amazing that NYY finds itself at the top of the toughest division in MLB. Kudos to Cash for building the depth we're witnessing now.

    True, but we've been down this road before and more than a few times, when certain Yankee fans gave up on the team early and question their ability to recover and be competitive for a playoff spot.
    Is this the end of the Brian Cashman era?

    If Gardner can't make it back, we need to call Dickerson up.

    And let's not forget Gardner. We lost 3 pitchers and our starting Left Fielder. And that's not stopping us. We are still in first place. Please Mets take 2 of three from the Rays at least. And Yankees I would really like a sweep.
    Still and will always be a New England Patriots fan.

    What has Dickeson done in the majors that makes him better than Wise?

    Wise is a career 60 OPS+ hitter over 900 PAs in parts of 10 seasons. He's repeatedly shown he's a very, very bad offensive baseball player.

    Dickerson is nothing special but he offers the upside of a league average bat, especially against RHP while providing league average or better defense at all 3 OF spots.

    Wise is nothing more than a late inning defensive replacement.

    It was years ago and SSS, but he hit very well in his first two partial seasons. I've said before that he's a bit frustrating for me because to my unprofessional eye his swing looks like it should produce more offense than it does. I think he has more ability than Wise, who is a proven lost cause at the plate. Said another way, it wouldn't surprise me to get league average offense/defense/baserunning out of Dickerson, but I'd be shocked to get anything of value out of Wise's bat. He's also producing (albeit at AAA) right now whereas Wise looks terrible even by his own pedestrian standards, so perhaps Dickerson could give us a little run of acceptable production.

    Dickerson doesn't get me excited with his less than 600 at bats. If Gardner is gone for a long period of time, I rather Cashman look for a better option.

    I would not heistate to kick Dickerson to the curb for a better option but that doesn't change my opinion that Dickerson >> Wise right now.

    Why not DFA Wise now, add Dickerson and look to improve the position by trade?

    So in 582 PAs Dickerson has a .266/.351/.399 slash line (98 OPS+) while in 904 PAs Wise owns a .217/.253/.367 slash line for a 60 OPS+

    I agree than Dickerson isn't an "exciting" option. I just think Wise is a putrid option.

    Agreed, and I'm sure he would have if the reports weren't positive only to be followed up by a few setbacks.

    I certainly don't get excited either, but Wise is proven dead weight and it seems like they're keeping him here for fear of losing him. Even if it's marginal, I'm confident Dickerson can outproduce Wise until that better solution you're referring to can be found.

    I don't see much difference in them so you're asking the wrong person.

    Sigh, Vlad just got out of his contract with the Jays. If only he were 6 years younger.

    Dickerson has roughly a league average offensive line in his career. Wise has a line that is reminicent of a back up catcher, poor utility infielder or marginal hitting pitcher and you don't see a difference between the two?

    I already said I didn't see much difference especially when Wise isn't getting any significant at bats. If he was getting such at bats then I might change my mind. Anyhow, carry on.

    He's not getting ABs becuase he sucks.

    With Dickerson Girardi as at least has the option of DHing Ibanez and putting Dickerson in LF v RHP.

    With Wise he's pretty much playing down a man.

    I'll give you the last word as it's not a big issue for me either way.
