Congratulations are in order for the starting centerfielder for the New York Yankees.
And for Melky, hmm, well....
Actually, Melky will be the 5th outfielder behind Damon, Nady, Gardner and Swisher.
I really like Gardner. He isn't exactly Carlos Beltran but he is a base stealing threat and can hit around .300 which is something I think the Yanks need. We need people who can get on base and move into scoring position either by sacrifice or stealing. Manufacturing runs is the name of the game. The goal should be to plate at least one run every inning and pray your pitching doesn't blow up. It's obvious you can't score every inning of every game but scoring around 6 to 7 runs a game wouldn't hurt.
I'm sure Brett is really excited, I'm extremely happy for him. I saw Brett play in that game I went to last year. He hit a sacrifice fly which turned out to be the winning run. I have nothing against Melky but I like Brett's style of play. He makes contact, he's fast on the basepads and just flat out hustles. He won't be a mega-star but I hope he can get on base and score lots of runs.
