He appears to be like many milennials that work for me and my organization - although they do a decent job, they work to get it over with so they can do something else that they like (play video games?) as opposed to their job being what they DO and incorporating it into who they ARE. Give me the enthusiasm of Voit and his propensity to drive the ball the other way!




I see him as a player, like to many players that just don't make it, his bat is just a little slow, the big leagues are just that, if you can't catch up with a fast ball you don't make it.. There's a lot more to hitting than just going up to the plate and swinging a bat...

I have been to two ST games, and 4 practices before the ST games started. I have one more to go to.  I talk to a lot of visiting NY fans and fans from all over that come to ST as vacation. The consensus to those I have talked to about the Bird/Voit debate is overwhelmingly in Voits favor, however many worry about Cashman and the Yankees stubbornness when it comes to their favorites for whatever the reason is. Hicks for example. Although I like Hicks to be honest. An interesting side note, is this.  I have a GUT FEELING, Every time early on, fair or not, that Bird messes up at the plate or on the field, the sounds of Luuuke through out  the stadium will ring loud.  Hopefully Hal is awake during enough games to hear it. lol..  Wink

I'd really like to see what Voit can do over the course of an entire season. He was on pace for ridiculous numbers last year. I can see him being a more impactful addition than anyone else that we signed in the off season. He brought some much needed offense at 1B last year and I hope he gets the nod and plays out a full season. He's quickly become a fan favorite and rightfully so- he's fun to watch. He seems like a perfect fit in the club house as well.

Sorry that "who i AM" is more than just Advisor support for a wealth and estate planning firm. 

You are welcome to recall my posts when it becomes that i'm proven wrong as long as we judge it on the merits of what we knew to be true at the time it was posted.

Voit ... if Bird starts on opening day I will be a little sick.





If Gardner and Bird are ever in this lineup together I shut off the TV

 He's a lifetime .236 hitter who can't seem to stay off the IL. They're all bad years. And the Yankees just signed him to a long-term deal??  I guess they're betting that as he ages he'll be less injury-prone. As Katnip the Cat would say, "Hmmm, that sounds logical!"





So...  you think all of Hicks' years have been bad...?



I can't...
