Richie SexsNO!
Friday, July 11, 2008
Ever since the Mariners made the (wise) decision to rid themselves of the dead weight that is Richie Sexson, fans and bloggers have been throwing around the notion that the Bronx would be a grand destination for a player that not even the worst team in the league wanted in their lineup.

I love my fellow bloggers and any Yankees fan is a friend in my book, but I've gotta say: come on, dudes! It's been YEARS since the last time he was decent enough to make a formidable contribution to his team, and his offense this year has been almost as abysmal as his worst-ever season last year. He's hitting just .218 with 11 homers and a .315 OBP in 74 games.

It's not just his weak performance that makes a Yankees signing a ridiculous idea, though. The Yanks simply have no need for him. They have plenty of first base options already and they certainly don't need another DH - much less one that can't get on base to save his life.

Matsui and Damon will be back eventually. The Great Mustachio is doing a fine job over at first base. Wilson Bettermint isn't an offensive powerhouse, but he's a good enough backup for the time being. What would SexsNO bring to the team that they don't already have?

That's not a rhetorical question. Is there something I'm missing?

    everyone should say no to SEX(son).

    He hasn't done a darn thing for the Mariners since he signed that big deal as shown by his release.

    You never know. A change of scenery could be the best thing for the guy. As far as I know it, it'd be better off him playing first than Wilson Betemit at first.

    Inserting a joke here about sex or what not would be funny but bringing Sexon to the Bronx would be a bigger joke.

    I know the Yanks are desperate to make the playoffs (at the moment i think this is highly unlikely) but bringing in 1B/DH is sort of pointless with all the DH options as well as the big Stache playing so well lately.

    Unless Sexson can play the outfield or pitch ....or even play a better SS than Jeter (which couldnt be that hard to do) than Sexson seems like a waste of a roster spot.

    He can hit LHP (.344/.423/.623... 5 HR, 9 BB, 13 K in 70 PA). This season, anyway.

    He still hits lefties decently, which the Yankees don't. And he's certainly a much better late-game defensive replacement than Wilson Betemit.

    Since the Yankees can have him for a pro-rated minimum contract, why not take a chance on him for two weeks? If he still sucks, cut him.

    The Yankees bench also qualifies as a weakness (who knew Chad Moeller was still on the team?) and Sexson could provide a bat off the bench with more punch than Justin Christian. Plus, maybe a change of scenery suits him.
