The reason is Brett Gardener.
It is as if he is the designated, " automatic out."
Situation: runners on 2nd and 3rd and we have just been robbed of a run, because of the ground rule double.
Brett makes out.
Situation: Runner on second, and Yanks need insurance run. Gardener goes down looking.
Brett gets all his hits when they don't matter. We are losing 7-0 in the 9th, with two out. Gary hits a solo homer. We lose 7-1.
If you want an at bat to put you to sleep, watch Brett at the plate.
He just never gets a clutch hit.
Good thing he moved to 7th in the line-up today. I would bat him 9th.
I would make him bunt at every at bat.
Or, sit him down.
I never liked him. Now I know why.
