Yankees Fans: Give Womack a Chance

Yankees fans… now, I know some of you don’t like Womack. For whatever reason this may be – as I posted at Bronx Banter – it’s time to give him a legit shot.

So far, I like him. Soriano he’s not. But, Cairo he can be. He is the weakest bat in our lineup like Cairo was the weakest bat in our lineup. Just because we have a 20 HR guy at 8 positions instead of 9 doesn’t mean we should act spoiled. (HRs isn’t the greatest example because I’d rather have a guy who can hit for average and play smart, like Jeter, but it’s the one stat that came to mind).

Give him a shot.

I think it's better to have a traditional lineup with table-setter guys like Womack and Jeter.

Then again, I'm just a purist. I've spent too many afternoons talking baseball with my grandfather.
