Power Outage

New York Yankees who hit more than ten home runs in 2012:

Curtis Granderson (43)
Robinson Cano (33)
Mark Teixeira (24)
Nick Swisher (24)
Russell Martin (21)
Raul Ibanez (19)
Alex Rodriguez (18)
Eric Chavez (16)
Derek Jeter (15)
Andruw Jones (14)

Red is injured, those that are gone are struck. So, what’s left out of that for the Yankees lineup opening day?

Robinson Cano

*sigh*

  • We all bitched that we were too dependent on the HR…OK, maybe just me…now we will be begging for them!

    Poetic justice.

  • Pete Abes has Tweeted that word out of Tampa is that Mo today will announce his retirement at the end of the season.
    Thank God, I say.
    Baseball will miss him. I can’t begin to describe my level of respect for him.

  • Regarding the original post, I think you’ll be fine.
    Somehow, the Yankees always are.

  • I hope he doesn’t go out on a bad team that misses the playoffs. That would be a travesty.

    And I kinda feel that way IBM, but the evidence is mounting the other way this year perhaps…we shall see.

    Hey, at least no ARod for the awhile and if they do suck this year, they will spend $1 billion so there’s that.

  • I have no idea whatsover how many home runs the Yankees have hit in spring training so far and I don’t intend to look it up as spring training stats don’t mean that much. But Yankees fans might be interested in this little titbit from ESPN Boston:

    * The Red Sox have six home runs in 482 at-bats this spring. That is correct. Six. They are dead last in baseball, with the Seattle Mariners having hammered five times as many. Big Papi’s Achilles’ tendon had better stop barking at him.

    All this might change in April, but I for one am convinced that David Ortiz will not be in the Red Sox line-up on opening day in Yankee Stadium.

    Do the Rays and Jays have any significant injuries?

  • just watched mo announce his retirement…internet tributes starting to flow…some dude commented that more men have walked on the moon [12] than scored on mo in the post season…i fact-checked that using b-ref.com, and well, he gave up 13 runs, 11 of them were earned…0.70…in 141 innings…42 saves…

  • Two moments of pure joy today…and not on the golf course this morning.

    Jeter steps up for his first AB, first pitch, line drive single to LF. I cheered out loud. Somehow as long as we have Jeter, I feel like we can’t lose. The dude is a generational great, haters be damned.

    Then Mo comes in for his first inning, 1-2-3 with 2 K’s. Beautiful. How lucky were we to be able to watch AND cheer for the greatest closer in the history of baseball for so many years. First ballot, 100% HOF’er. Fact.

    Good times. For at least one more year.
