    You're quick. I certainly hope we're going back to 12 pitchers. When Gardner comes off the DL, Nix should go down and Wise stay up.

    Dude was raking in AAA. Good to see him getting a chance. Nice double tonight.

    Any offense he provides is a bonus. I'm happy to have someone who can actually catch the ball.

    You mean Cashman finally called up an outfielder? That should have happened two weeks ago!

    I hope we don't lose him after Gardner comes off the DL. He would be be an ideal 4th OF but there is probably no room for him given our platoon/rotating DH situation.

    Can't he basically take Chavez's spot, for at least a little while?

    Or do we think Chavez will be back quickly?

    I read somewhere this morning he may be back soon -- he was only on the 7 day DL

    Good question. Even if Chavez does come back quickly you know he will end up on the DL again eventually. All the more reason to keep Wise in the system, somehow.

    Yeah, I heard that too, but I'm still skeptical. Seems to me the Yankees took advantage of the 7-day DL since concussion was one (just one) of the issues reported. But that doesn't mean he'll be back on day 8. If they're holding back Brett Gardner, we shouldn't expect them to be aggressive about bringing back Chavez.

    He should stay up. Ibanez should be cut.

    Not really. He's pretty much a defensive replacement whose totally expendable. He has a career 63 OPS+. I wouldn't let a couple good weeks of AAA by a 34 year old fool you. He was the right guy to call up but he's easily lost.

    His one claim to fame was the awesome catch in the 9th inning of Bherle's perfect game right after he came in as - surpirse - a defensive replacement.

    Sure, let's cut a guy hitting .300 with RISP with 13 RBI for the classic AAAA player.

    Better yet, let's make decisions based on 20 ABs.

    This team needs a backup OFer that is capable of playing good defense and pinch-running. Not an old DH with a .308 OBP and complete inability to play the OF.

    I'm sorry I'm no fan of Raul but cutting him for a player who have never once hit better than .250 in 10 seasons, has never once been good enough to a mass 200 PAs in a season and oh by the way in 10 years has amassed more SBs 36 than BBs 34 in his career is not the way to go.

    Wise is the perfect 5th OF on a 2nd division NL club, nothing more nothing less.

    And you're basing your opinion to keep Wise over Ibanez on what 7 ABs? Or is it his AAA numbers?

    Wise is a good defensive OF. Anything you get from him at the plate is a pure bonus. I'm not saying Ibanez is great at the plate but he is a lot better than Wise.

    Re: 2012 Dewayne Wise Performance Thread

    I'd prefer to play the hot hand and have a player that can pinch run and play plus defensive.

    Ibanez doesn't offer anything offensively, defensively, or as a baserunner.

    Does DeWayne have a "hot hand"?

    Well, if he does, pick him up for a fantasy league. Releasing players for a "hot hand" doesn't work so well in the real world of big contracts where players cannot just be picked up and released as their hands get hot and cold.

    said on the night Ibanez hits two homeruns.

    Wise is a nice defensive 5th outfielder if there is room for him on the roster, but choosing him over the team's primary DH is absurd.

    Impeccable timing

    Has Dewayne Wise ever had a 2 HR game? I mean even counting little league?
