The Real CC Shows Up

April 13, 2009 – 5:11 pm

NYY 6, Kansas City 1.  Now that looked more like the CC we were expecting!  Talk about night and day difference from his previous start.  Let’s hope that’s the CC we see on a regular basis.  On the offensive side, Nick Swisher sure made a statement for getting more playing time, and Jorge Posada is continuing to look like the Jorge of two years ago.  I don’t think a lot of people realize just what an impact there was from Posada missing so much of last year — that was the most significant factor in the fall off in team offensive production.

On the not so bright side, Cody Ransom sure has been disappointing so far.  He’s 1-for-18 with only a .105 OBP.  And hasn’t really been all that impressive defensively either.  It’s got to be tough filling in for the likes of A-Rod — who hopefully will be back before Ransom becomes a real liability.
