Baez has "top-shelf bat speed," according to one National League scout who recently saw him play. "I haven't seen that type of bat speed this year outside of the big leagues. It's pure, unadulterated, just violent bat-speed."

He's being scapegoated by the Yank fans. Granderson is hitting under .100, Cano hitting under .200, Martin barley over .200, Swisher terrible....I will not believe that starting Eric Chavez gives them a better shot to win than Alex Rodriguez.
Yeah but all those guys hit during the season (except Martin who is there for his defense really). A-Rod had a miserable season for what they pay him. And defensively, Chavez is most likely the better option.
Give Girardi credit. It took balls to pinch hit for him in Game 3 and sit him in Game 5. And both times, it worked.
