And we’re back for day three! Today we have a couple categories regarding three players that have something to prove to the Yankee Universe. Let’s take a look at the results:
|0.207||Cano’s BA w/RISP||Over||Over||Over||Over||Over||Over|
|100||Times you will hear Granderson is a nice guy||Over||Over||Over||Under||Over||Over|
|36||Gardner will steal this many bases||Over||Over||Over||Over||Over||Over|
Everyone is expecting Robbie Cano to improve on last year’s miserable .207 batting average with runners in scoring position. The feeling amongst the panelists is that a hitter as good as Cano can’t struggle with runners in scoring position this poorly; he’s just too good at putting the bat on the ball. I think he’ll take a page out of the A-Rod book and relax at the plate. Everyone but “Wrong-Answer Communiello” agrees that we are in for a long season of announcers praising Granderson’s kindergarten report card like “plays well with others.” For a team that won last year due, in part, to great chemistry, I think that Mikey Kay and company will make sure that everyone knows how great of a teammate Curtis Granderson is. Look at this smile:
Lastly, we have Mr. Gardner and his amazing wheels. His nickname is Brett the Jet, not Brett the Slow Guy. I also wouldn’t mind “Brett the Corvette,” but that’s just me. He’s projects 36 steals via PECOTA, but Yankee fans are hoping for something much higher. The hardest part of stealing bases for this kid is getting on base.
Come back tomorrow for some more predictions that are guaranteed to be right, or your money back.
There really are more predictions tomorrow, the over the title is referring to is the high number of “over” picks chosen by the experts.
