NYY Offense

Who’s Hot

— Raul Ibanez – 5 for 12 with 1 double, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB in the last 7 days

— Jayson Nix – 4 for 10 with 1 double, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Derek Jeter – 10 for 26 with 1 double, 4 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Nick Swisher – 6 for 17 with 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Russell Martin – 5 for 17 with 2 HR, 5 RBI, 6 BB in the last 7 days

Who’s Not

Unless you want to count Mark Teixeira who was recently sidelined with a wrist injury, no one on the Yankees has really been slumping in the last 7 days. Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson have hit for low averages and OBPs of late, but they each have hit 2 HRs and 6 RBIs in the same timeframe, so that’s not really a slump.

SEA Offense

Who’s Hot:

— Brendan Ryan – 8 for 17 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Kyle Seager – 10 for 22 with 1 double, 3 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Mike Carp – 8 for 20 with 2 doubles, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

— Trayvon Robinson – 4 for 10 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI, 1 BB in the last 7 days

Who’s Not

— Casper Wells – 3 for 22 with 1 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K in the last 7 days

— John Jaso – 2 for 11 with 1 HR, 5 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K in the last 7 days

Enjoy the series everyone!
