Yankee fans: Brett Gardner has 25 stolen bases… 2010-Jul-08 at 04:10 PDT

Think about it.  We’re only halfway through the season.  This much power, and this much speed – Jeter, A-Rod, Granderson, Swish, Cano, heck, even Cervelli – that’s a lot of guys who can run.  They also hit for power and average, and play solid defense.  And then you throw a Brett Gardner with 25 SB on top of that.  You’re kidding me, right?

Tex, Posada… haven’t mentioned them because they don’t run well.  But I haven’t forgotten.

And even Burnett won.  He won.  Finally.  We know that he’s at least halfway on board now, and I’ll take the odds on him getting his shit together in the playoffs, and being dominant.  Remember… this guy was dominant before we signed him.  Best-curveball-in-the-game type-of dominant.  That’s why we signed him.  And with C.C., Pettite, Hughes, and Vasquez… I’m enjoying this plan so far.

But Brett Gardner? 25 SB? Are you kidding me? Just icing.  Delicious icing.

So, things are good in Yankee-land, no?
