To Jorge's credit he was contrite & apologized for his actions last night. But in the end words won't mean much, he needs to start hitting if he wants to earn my respect back again. Otherwise he needs to retire. I don't want to see him forcing his way into the lineup because of his own pride & hurting the team with those weak AB's he's been putting up all year. He has zero hits against left handed pitching this year. That's just unbelievable. We mine as well have a pitcher as our DH this season if he keeps this up.
& while we're on the topic, some of the other guys on this team need to start pulling their weight & hitting too. It's unbelievable that we haven't lost more games than we have this season with guys like Swisher, Jeter, Teix, Jorge, ARod & Gardner struggling the way they have for much of the season. At least Jeter & Gardner have started to pick it up of late hitting wise. Hopefully the other guys can follow suit. We need our bats to give our pitching more run support. It's a joke that CC Sabathia only has 3 wins with the way he's pitched. He should have at least 5 or 6 by my recollection.
