Or: When Keeping It Real with Expensive Stars Goes Bad
I saw the Yanks called up a fellow named Zoilo Almonte, and I was inspired to create a thread about the 2013 Yankees, a team decimated by the injuries (and re-injuries) of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Kevin Youkilis, Francisco Cervelli, Eduardo Nunez, etc. Of course, they still have some notable fellows who aren't injured (yet), namely Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells, Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki, and Travis Hafner on offense and a generally healthy rotation, but here are the other guys who have ranged from regular playing time to brief stints since April 1 for the Bronx Bombers.
A few guys on the 40 Man they could call up
And there's still 90+ games to go! They even just acquired former OF prospect/total dud Fernando Martinez for AAA depth. It's a bizarre train wreck and I want to see them go all out with these guys off the scrap heap and rookies 95% of people have never heard of.
