New York Yankees: Spring Training Game 8 Grades
So a bunch of nobodies are playing for the Yankees in Spring Training. Sure, a lot of their starters aren’t playing but the team must be graded. The New York Yankees lost to the Atlanta Braves by a score of 3-2.
Since the Yankees lost and they scored only two runs, you can’t expect big time grades.
A Johnny Damon
I have to grade this game on a sliding scale. Damon went 1-for-2 with one RBI and a walk. That’s pretty good considering the Yankees lost.
B+ Dan Giese
Giese let in an earned run in three innings of work and had three strike outs and scored a run after hitting a two-out single. That’s pretty good for three innings of relief.
B Xavier Nady
He went 1-for-3 with one run scored. It’s weird that he hasn’t hit well all spring and he contributes to a game that no one else does.
C Juan Miranda
C is the perfect grade for Juan Miranda. He didn’t get any hits but he did get an RBI and he took one for the team by getting a hit by pitch.
C- Angel Berroa
Sure, he got a hit but he also struck out and got caught stealing. Next!
F Ian Kennedy
Is this going to be the same Ian Kennedy as last year? He gave up two earned runs on three hits in three innings of work. I get the feeling he would of let more runs in if he pitched more innings.
Player Of The Game: Johnny Damon
Who else would it be? He was only one of the two regulars that started and it showed.
