Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
The Yankees' new center fielder had a fine day at ballpark today. Brett Gardner was 3 for 5 with a walk and a double. His last hit was a walkoff single in the bottom of the 13th. His second walkoff single this year.
He's a speedy little guy. Reminds me a bit of Bubba, hitting from the left side of the plate with the high socks. He's got more patience than Bubba, but less power (at least so far).
But I don't think either Gardner or Melky will be starting in center field next year in the new Yankee Stadium. The Yankees will probably try to sign a free agent or something.
