    having to deal with the nunez/nix of the world makes derek jeter look all the more valuable. the SS position is barren yet again.

    I am more than a tad surprised, linking Nunez and performance is an oxymoron.

    If he gets healthy at some point this year, you will see a markedly improved player.

    It seems that those nagging little injuries really throw his game off. Maybe he's one of those players that has to be 100% to be effective.
    In reality, how often are players during a 162 game season 100%?

    He has to learn how to play banged up.

    While being banged up may be the reason he's been as bad as he has this season, his career to date suggests that he's one of those players who isn't particularly effective regardless of health.

    At this point in time, with the injuries complicating things, young Joe has no other choice. He has the ability to hold down the fort until Jeter returns.

    Nunez will be inserted back into the lineup ASAP, because he has the tools.
    What he does with them in the future is up to him.

    The way Nix and Nelson are playing, both defensively and offensively, Nunez becomes a utility guy for me.

    Interesting point.
    I'm not a Nix basher by any stretch, Nelson the jury's out, as I'm not too familiar with his play.
    But young Joe can't wait to get Nunnie back into the starting lineup and he will start paying dividends that will surpass both Nix and Nelson combined.

    ...or, he'll get another boo boo and be out for 8 more games.

    I hope you are right about Nunez but, notwithstanding his speed, I don't see him adding as much to the overall success of the team as Nix. Once Jeter gets back it becomes elementary in any circumstance but for me, I hope Nunez is not ultimately looked at as the heir apparent at SS.

    Nix has his game more under control and plays within his capabilities....but speed kills.
    Nunez is the starting ss till Jeter gets back.
    I also, don't see him as a long term replacement once Jeter retires.
    This year he is going to have every chance to prove he is if he stays healthy. Hopefully the Yankees will try and look elsewhere to fill the huge hole at short once Jeter leaves.
    There's something about Nunez that.......... the Yankees want to take a good long look at, to see if he's going to explode into a higher than average hitter, base stealer and glove man.

    He's really bad. It'd be great if people stopped complimenting his "toolset" and potential.

    There's certainly something explosive about his work with the glove.

    As long as he maintains his speed, and swings at strikes the Yanks have a space for him...

    Re: 2013 Eduardo Nunez Performance Thread

    the Yankees also have a space right now for Vernon Wells and Luis Cruz.

    they're quite the home for awful baseball players, which Nunez very much is one of.

    OK, I think that he's a pretty good hitter even under pressure, meaning in big games or with men on base, or even to get on base while playing catch up.. His fielding is not good because he'll throw the ball away in tight situations.

    He does have great speed, so he can pinch run and steal bases or try, so I think that he makes a good backup, and a good guy off the bench.. And I'd like to know is this answer good enough or don't you understand this either??

    Nope. He's just bad regardless of when/where he's hitting. Guys with numbers as poor as his in the minors generally don't get called up to the majors, much less actually have success. I don't even know what they see in him, he does nothing well (can't even run without his helmet falling off).

    The Eduardo Nunez Fan Club is one thing that has always puzzled me about this board

    He is tolerable.
    Then he makes an E. That stuff hurts.

    Jeez louise... he plays like a moron. Chris Stewart woulda/coulda/shoulda thrown out a runner attempting to steal -- but Nunez wasn't positioned correctly. He's supposed to be a professional.

    I hope this season - and last night in particular - have finally buried the idea that Nunez has potential as a major-league shortstop.
    A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.

    Cashman will have to be buried first before we or the Yanks can entertain that notion.
