for the Yankees. And against a very tough pitcher. Every team needs a bulldog like Gardner. Thank goodness he's ours.

I love that the Yankee Stadium video screen puts that up when he gets a hit.

Even with me being more of a Shawn Michaels fan. :)
I'm a big Gardy fan too - he's now a longtime Yankee and it's hard to

compare him to anyone before him. Micky Rivers? Rivers was a very good leadoff man for a long time, but I think Brett is the better all around player.
This all started

with that three-run bomb he hit at Wrigley back in April. He's been clutch all year. When Frazier drew that walk I knew Gardy was gonna make something happen.
Mattingly is my number 1

Gardner has been my second favorite for years.

Never liked the idea of trading him or moving on from him. Would have understood if it was the best for the team, but wouldn't have liked it.
Right now I think Didi is my number one.

The possibility that we would find a shortstop that was better than Derek in his later years seemed close to zero. Didi right now certainly is better than late Derek.

Gardner is special, nevertheless. Top 3.
What a great AB

Allen threw maybe 6 strikeout pitches that Gardy fought off, teeth clenched .

Nah, he's fat and doesn't know shit about hockey.
Love Gardy

I wonder what all of those who wanted the Yankees to trade him think now. I always thought he was the perfect lead off hitter because he takes so many pitches.

I wouldn’t trade him for anything. He embodies what being a Yankee means and is without question a leader for a young up and coming crop of Yankees to look up to and how to play the game.

The other thing is he may be getting older but seems to be getting better. He still runs like the wind, is still one of the best corner outfielders in the game and without question is playing some of the best baseball of his career.

I believe he is one of those rare aging players who just seems to get better with time. He needs to retire as a Yankee.

Cutting ties with aging heroes is always a painful part of the game,

Gardner is at an age where his decline will soon begin, meanwhile the Yankees have their future LF (Frazier) ready and waiting. At some point either Gardner or Ellsbury are going to have be moved. Preferably it will be Ellsbury, but his ugly contract may get in the way of that. Gardner should be kept for his veteran leadership, but the Yankees have some big off-season decisions coming up, and it is hard to judge which ways they will go.
