Wow, you guys really got into the Frazier vs. Hicks conversation! I’ve had fun with the way you guys have challenged me the last few weeks, and we’ve got some really good stuff this week - thanks and keep it coming! You guys have been way more on your games than the Yankees have this week.
Without any further ado, this week’s mailbag will feature round three of the Frazier vs. Hicks discussion, the number 21, digging deeper into Mike Ford’s production, and taking a look at an under-the-radar hitting prospect. Let’s get at it:

In game one of the Yankees’ series with the Jays, the Yanks had their de facto ace on the hill, Domingo German, to face off against the young sluggers of the Jays.

Greg Bird is down with yet another lower body injury, this time succumbing to plantar fasciitis. The Yankees have stated that Bird will be out for at least a month, but based on their track record in estimating IL time and Bird’s propensity for extended absences, the Yankees will likely have a hole to fill for longer. The Yankees have allowed Bird to occupy a spot in the lineup despite the fact that his production when healthy over his last 500 plate appearances has been abysmal. The injury to Bird’s foot finally allows the Yankees to give Mike Ford a shot. Ford has started this season scorching hot at Triple-A Scranton, but there’s more to his story than just a flash in the pan.Read More
Once again, it appears that the Yankees Injury List is even beyond what Spinal Tap could’ve imagined, as we turn the number up to 12 yet again, as the Yankees have moved Greg Bird off the active roster and onto the 10-Day IL.
