Sulbaran_r9d89b54_dcs2j41g

Jose Pirela has been consistently good all season. His last 10 games are no exception, where he’s .286/.333/.548/.881 with three homeruns in the last five games. His season total is .320/.361/.466/.827 with seven homeruns and 10 SB. Those numbers would look great in the Yankees lineup right now. Brian Roberts has been better lately, but ...
