Hicks needs to figure out whether he wants to play baseball or golf, that golf swing kills most hitters...

I have seen enough of Hicks to know that a couple of highlights from winter ball would not change my mind about him. The back of the baseball card does not lie. The worst mistake this team can make is thinking he is the starting CF for next season. Time to upgrade. Hicks as a 4th outfielder fine but not an every day player.


Bottom line as of today as the offseason has gotten into high gear, it is very realistic that we are the 4th best team in the AL East. We need to make some bold moves to improve this team. Running out the same options year in and year out will not work. I am not sayiong go out and spend a fortune on FA players but Cashman needs to explore the trade market and fill some of these areas of need. At a minimum we need upgrades at SS and CF plus we need to fill a hole at 1B. Catcher needs to be decided upon and yes another arm for the rotation is key. I hope there is a plan and the dumpster diving is put to the side.

     I think he prefers golf...but he plays baseball to get the money.  But that is just a guess.

Do you actually know how to read the "back of the baseball card?" Seriously do you? 




Aaron Hicks' biggest problem, is that he can't stay healthy. His "back of the baseball card" numbers reflect that. 


On that basis, and that ALONE, I would look to trade Aaron Hicks. Offensively, he's fine. However, I think his approach, with regards to his batting swing is wrong. LOL....it's a violent swing in manner that also (IMO) plagues Luke Voit. Perhaps the new batting coach can help, but on the basis of health, I wouldn't mind the Yankees trading Aaron Hicks.

Must be a full moon out again. Yes I do know how to read the back of a card but do you? So you highlight his stats from 2015 which is 7 seasons ago? Why because he hit .256. What is the point that was ancient times ago. Also if you are making the point about him and his health why not highlight 2016 a year later when he did play in 123 games but hit a paltry .217.

Hicks has played 9 years and only played in over 100 games 3 times, and has a .233 lifetime BA. That's the back of his baseball card the way you and I read it. Enough said.
