Shhh… Raul Ibanez is Better vs. RHP than Alex Rodriguez

Ok, if you weren’t watching baseball Wednesday night you lose.

One quick thing from the ninth inning of the Yankees’ win over the Orioles (Raul Ibanez’s party).

Pinch-hitting Ibanez for Rodriguez was absolutely the right tactical move given that Yankees needed one run to tie the game. The best way to get one run? A solo homer.

vs RHP in ’12:

Raul Ibanez: .248/.319/.492 19 HR, 360 PA
Alex Rodriguez: .256/.326/.391, 10 HR in 356 PA
