Please no Melky
I keep reading on the blog comments that everyone wants Melky to be the opening day CF'er. My question is why? Yes he has a good arm. Does he hit well? Does he run well? Is he prone to long slumps? no no yes.... This is why the Yankees sent him down to the minors in the first place. Yes the kid has talent and will probably be above replacement level in the long run. Brett Gardner has a few more tools that we only started to see at the end of last year. I say let the two of them slug it out in spring training for that coveted CF position. Unless We sign Manny and the the battle is for the fourth outfield spot.
