  1. This makes sense only if you make A-Rod the full time DH OR if you put Headley in LF. Thinking a little outside of the box here, if Gardner is still here next year, why not move him to CF and put Granderson in RF. Curtis is getting older, and Gardner is flat out a better centerfielder. Then put Headley in LF, where at least he has some experience. Occasionally stick him at 3B to give A-Rod a breather. Hard to imagine that Jones, Chavez and Ibanez all return next year, so this might be a solution.

  2. Once again, the thought of Arod spending 5+ years as a full time DH when you have other aging players like Jeter, Tex, Grandy, (even Cano turns 30 soon) who are going to need some half days off… its just sickening…

    he's obviously going to spend A LOT of time DHing… and thats fine, it just can't be all the time!

  3. His career numbers on the road are 298/365/448. At Petco it’s 235/324/341. So I disagree with the notion that he doesn’t have any power at all. Not easy for hitters playing in that canyon of a ballpark. Hitting mostly from the left side in Yankee Stadium will most certainly help.
