The heir to Jeter.

The replacement for Swisher.

These are just two of the incredibly ridiculous descriptions we’ve heard trumpeted about Eduardo Nunez by those who cover the Yankees. The level of enthusiasm shown towards this player is truly one of the most bizarre things we’ve seen regarding the Yankees in recent years — especially since he’s done absolutely nothing at either the minor or major league level to warrant that enthusiasm. And his Knoblachian defense should not be a surprise to anyone. He made a boatload of errors in the minors too.

Again, truly one of the most insane things we’ve seen, and fortunately, the lovefest is over for now.
