Not only is there an insane amount of stupidity around Yankee roster moves, but there is zero self-awareness when people are wildly wrong. Recently I went back and read some of the nyyfans discussion after DJ got signed and it is pretty much uniformly so remarkably stupid that you'd think people might be hesitant to offer up such strong opinions in the future, but it hasn't even made a dent.Agree with all of this but there is clearly some ire about it. Fans are calling into radio shows saying how cruel the Yankees are being to him. If there's any way to listen to WFAN from 6:15pm tonight, a fan called in saying "the yankees are being reverse racists by keeping him down because they want more diversity." People are getting stupid.
I always though Higgy could hit high heat. He hit a few bombs last year. He had a 12-pitch AB in Fenway last week that spoke to his progress as a hitter.He had a .924 OPS in AAA, which is better than Tauchman or Wade or Estrada or Clint have there.
