The Yankee beat: RISP, Swisher, and 3rd base

Nova didn’t have his best stuff, but the Yankees still managed to salvage the final game of the series against the Los Angeles California West Coast Angels of Anaheim with a 6-5 win thanks to homers by Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson. Here is the recap.

Here is what the Yankees blogosphere has been discussing.

  • points out that the Yankees have the lowest BABIP in the majors with RISP and wonders if hitting with RISP is a unique skill or if it has just been a case of bad luck.
  • River Ave Blues explains that part of Nick Swisher‘s problem this season is that, unlike in the past, he is swinging at everything this year.
  • The Yankee Analysts ponders the Yankees future at third base. With Alex Rodriguez looking older and older each day it’s a serious question.
