They should have gotten Jay Bruce at the deadline to DH.

Our DHs are like 0 for 24 this postseason.  Maybe you can't blame Ellsbury, Headley, and Holliday because they are being used so sporadically that it's hard for them to get into a rhythm.  But clearly, those three have been a disappointment.  I can forgive the younger kids, like Judge and Sanchez, for their mistakes and inconsistencies, because it is their first postseason.  But we need more from our veteran hitters.  Yankee pitching, both starters and relievers, has been great.


I would think acquiring a lefty DH, who can fill in at first base or the outfield, might be a priority in the offseason.  Jay Bruce, who is a free agent, would be ideal.  But he might ask for too much money, or he might not want to just DH.  Still, he has that Cincy connection with Todd Frazier and Chapman.  Yonder Alonso, also a free agent, would be good, too.  They'll try to trade Ellsbury, but, failing in that, he'll become a fourth outfielder.  Headley might be stuck here as a backup as well, since he has another year left on his contract and might be untradeable.  Clint Frazier figures to be in the mix as well.

It looks like Gary will DH today and Romine will catch Sonny. Happy to see this, it will improve our defense at catcher, and give us a DH that bats #4 instead of #9.
