Steve Pearce Now Has a Story

by Sam Miller

Yankees who have hit cleanup since the start of 2004: 

Alex Rodriguez
Robinson Cano
Mark Teixeira
Andruw Jones
Nick Swisher
Curtis Granderson
Jorge Posada
Marcus Thames
Hideki Matsui
Xavier Nady
Shelley Duncan
Jason Giambi
Bobby Abreu
Gary Sheffield
Tino Martinez
Ruben Sierra
Bernie Williams

And, tonight, Steve Pearce,who has slugged .372 in 679 plate appearances spread out over a six-year career. But he was hitting .318/.419/.568 in Triple-A this year, and he has a career .523 slugging percentage in the minors, so what the heck. You could be disgusted, but might as well try to be amused.
