Melky is not taking his surprise suspension lying down (h/t bronxgrl1 and NumberSeven):
WasWatching has an interesting article up.
1. Hits for a pretty decent batting average, and
2. Walks a lot, and
3. Is a good base-stealer.
Either way, I think Gardner needs to start the season on the bench as insurance. With Melky unavailable, the Yanks have no one able to play center.
