CAN THE YANKEES BE "PITCHED" TO???
.
.
. I mean it isn't like AJ Burnett is Sandy Koufax you know you're in trouble when Sabathia 2 run homerun today... has more an offence input than your entire team!!!








there is to many below .250 hitters in this lineup not carrying there weight!
I know it's tough without Matsui and Damon missing...but still





OK, it's a little past midseason but time for grades here





MANAGER/ COACHES



Joe Giradi C- , lost about 4 games I can think of due to poor decision making



LINEUP


C. Posada Inc- injured much of season. cannot play up to the level of weak hitting Molina behind plate anymore

C. Molina B- gets key hit, sometimes when needed, never going to be a .280 hitter but defense is impecible

1B. Giambi B+ terrible april but has carried team lack luster offense the rest of way, liability in field

2b. Cano F+ ; terrible head isn't in the game when his role in lineup is lessended @ in bottom third of lineup

3B. Arod D+ ;does not get the clutch hit, overswings guesses wrong strikes out in key spots too much

SS. Jeter-D+ ;does not get the clutch hit anymore defense has improved from last year


LF. Matsui A- injured may not return this season but was hitting .320 and getting on base

Damon B- liability in field may hit 3-5 or go 4-4 but go hitless the rest of the week too
streaky



CF. Melk Man D- ; great defense very little offense in spurts he shows what he can do but to many 0 for 4 performances head seems NOT to be in game as much when hes batting 7th or 8th like he is when @ leadoff


RF. Bobby Abreu C- ,showing signs of age and rust in outfield not on base as much as his career .395 mark would suggest way down this year to about in the .320's still is a gamer but in the 3 hole maybee needs to set things off more in this lack luster offense and show more power!


Reserves

inf- Wilson Bettemit -D+ ; for someone with a beautiful cut and swing he really cant hit!!! may show flashes of power, but is a liability in lineup and to opposing teams a sure out

1B-OF Shelley Duncan -D ; isnt a major league hitter! will never hit above .240 may get his 15 to 30 homeruns a year if gets at bats but isn't a major league monster the way he dominates class AA


Pitchers


Mussina A+ ; what more can you say he's the professional

Wang B+ ; injured, counted on to be yanks #1, but really is a number 2, or three on most good staffs

Joba B+ ; too early to tell seems to be he's going to be a good starter NOT great!! but was a great set up man closer


Pettite C ; two good starts, one bad....even during bad starts battles a professional

Rasner C+ ;end of rotatiom typre starter , doesnt have greatest stuff but is a battler I like him

SidneyMonsoon; ?- ;hasnt been with team long but has pitched well has good stuff just hes firecracker waiting to blow up


Phil Hughes F :was he really hurt or over valued prospect

Ian Kennedy F : refer to Phil Hughes


Bull Pen


Edwin Ramirez C- : has good stuff, inconsistant

Latroy Hawkins F : never good in close game, would only pitch him when up by 4 runs or more

Jose Veras B- : has electric stuff , but sometimes it's to straight

Kyle Farsworth B- : has electric stuff, but sometimes it's too straight, very good thus far, but worries me nicknames Kyle "you know I'm going to blow a big game sometime" Farsnsworth


Mariano Rivera A+ :what more can you say about the legend having his best season





--------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall grade C minus- this team @ times seems lazy and uninspired when it comes to guys like Cano or distracted when it comes to Arod, team needs Jeter and Arod to step it up big time, more so than they have an infusion of youth and speed and Damon to be well Damon
and to get competive pitching in 2nd half to even contend

Yeah I dont know if I'd give Arod and Jeter D+

But I'd sure like to see alot more out of them both in the second half both, now with Matsui not comming back and Damon's status up in the air
