    He almost unarguably showed plus range in '06, even on his injured foot.

    Actually, compared to what we are used to seeing from Bernie from 2002-2225, Damon showed Plus+++ range in the OF, in spite of all his injuries.

    I'm very satisfied with the defense Damon provided and I also realized there are quite a few CF'ers with below average arm strength in CF. After watching Bernie for the last few years, Damons arm looks acceptable to me.

    There's a reason the Yanks were near the top in Defensive Efficiency (% of balls in play converted to out) and Damon played a big part.

    Wang played a bigger part--but Damon should not be excluded.

    Could we possibly one day see an OF of Damon, Gardner, and Tabata, with Matsui as DH? My guess is that could happen in 2009, the last year of Damon's and Matsui's contracts.

    I bet Gardner gets traded before he wins a job with the Big League Yanks.

    In 2009, that lineup will not have musch pop in it. So I doubt it.

    Besides, my guess is Damon becomes a DH before Matsui. Especially if he continues to play with reckless abandon out there.

    Gardner had a couple of hits, Eric did almost nothing, 0-5, although he had an RBI.

    Pilittere went 2-3, and is up to .407. But he did make an error.

    Rasner pitched 4 scorless innings, although he gave up 4 hits and 3 walks. Kennard had his best game of the AFL season in his appearance. Beam was his usual scorless self, although he let a few runners on in his 1 inning.

    with all this Matsuzaka/Gary Sheffield trade talk we forgot all about our guys over at the AFL...

    November 10, 2006

    Brett Gardner went 1-4 with a run scored and a BB.

    Eric Duncan had a pretty good game, went 2-4 with 2 RBI´s and a run scored.

    T.J. Beam pitched 2 scoreless innings and got the W (2-1 W-L 0.64 ERA so far).

    Let's hope Beam can gather some confidence now and win a spot on the roster... we could use a cheap reliever...

    Seriously, Beam has been untouchable in the AFL. Hopefully he can translate this year over to the bigs.

    Not expecting dominance, but a high 3 ERA I'd take.

    Yeah me too. Someone who can come in in the 6th and 7th and pitch an inning or two. People forget that he started the year at AA so it was probably a lot to ask of him to come up and blow people away here. His stats in the minors are too good for him to be able to have some success.

    The only trouble Beam has had was on the 25th where he gave up 2 hits, 1ER, & walked one in 1IP. Every other time out, he's been lights out.

    The pitchers made adjustments to him- the scouts likely found a hole or flaw. It is now Gardner's turn to make adjustments.

    i don't know why everyone has a hard-on for gardner... he hasn't yet proven that he won't have the bat knocked out of his hands.

    .
    Now its time to translate that in the majors. He dominated in AA, AAA, and the AFL. If he can prove that he can be a good reliever for us than we can entertain offers for Proctor and try to upgrade our starting pitching.

    As long as Beam, Bruney, & Britton........(HA our own Killer B's) step it up then that makes Proctor expendable. That's the only way I'd be fine with Proctor being traded.

    I really think Beam just needs little more time. We just need to be more patient with him, just like Proctor. I am all for trading proctor if he can bring players who can fill some major holes but i dont want to trade him for the heck of trading him.

    It's unreal how much TJ Beam dominates the minors; I mean there are good minor league numbers and then there are TJ Beam minor league numbers. Not to mention his rubber arm, damn this guy pitches a lot.
