The Downside of Raul Ibanez
After getting off to a great start, Ibanez has been mired in a prolonged slump. While there has been speculation that his increased time in the outfield has contributed to the stream of four-hoppers to the second baseman, I'm not sure if I buy it. Ibanez spent the last three seasons playing the field every day in the National League and there hasn't been any word from the Yankees on him battling nagging injuries. He is forty though, so who knows.
