The Yankees are a better team with Urshela @ 3rd

As long as he keeps hitting, his glove saves us runs every game. And I am saying this as an Andujar fan.

   What do you think Urshela's line will be if he gets another 450 pa ? I don't think his mom believes he will bat 350 for the rest of the year. How much does he have to hit to keep you happy with him at 3rd ?

I don't want to set a number but if he hits decently, say .270+ I think he is more valuable at third. I am not a stat guy and not into the whole WAR thing but my goodness, just watching him on a nightly basis, he just makes so many plays to save runs, prevent big innings, come backs from the opposing team and last but not least, extra pitches from our pitchers. This guy makes a big difference.

No...he's not gonna hit .350. He'll come back to earth, but it's entirely possible he's hitting well because he's playing every day. We'll find out soon enough. At least for now he should get most of the playing time @ 3B; DH Andujar.

Problems will not be a problem until Didi comes back, then some infield choices have to be made or trades will have to be made...

    A 270 batting average today is pretty good. It would rank you 44th among regular players going into the games tonight. If Cashman is convinced that Urshela can hit 270 for the long haul, I think you'll get your wish,

If Urshela was on another team ...would you trade Andujar for him straight up?

You're the guy who wanted to move Andujar to 2B...

At this moment, probably not but things could definitely change. Urshela might break out and Andujar may never be the same with his injury (hopefully not). I'd still want Gio manning third base for me though as long as he hits adequately.

urshela hit a huge HR tonite. as long as his offense continues, he has to play 3B (though he made an error tonite). andujar who needs to find his stroke DHs. stanton's return still seems a ways off. when he does return, he mostly plays RF until judge returns so andujar can continue to DH. when judge returns, it's an abundance of riches. one thing is clear, unless he turns back into a pumpkin, urshela's earned a spot on this roster.
