  1. I'm not thrilled about Ibanez either, but I am holding out optimism that the short porch in right will do him a tremendous favor this year.

  2. I was about to blast in here and reiterate the points I made in my article about looking for a right handed masher, and how Raul at least partially fits the bill…but actually Jorge hit righties to the tune of a .353 wOBA (better than Ibanez). So I think it has to do more with the emotions than any sort of statistic–no one would want to DFA Jorge, even if it would ultimately help the team.

    So, good points overall.

  3. The people who run the yankees have never really liked Posada…. not even when he was completely underrated

    sad, but true
