Is Nunez being targeted?
With Jeter out and the Yankees thin at SS, Eduardo Nunez has been plunked twice in one week. Coincidence? I think not. Other teams know that the Yankees do not have an adequate backup to Nunez and I believe he is being targeted to take him out of games. Jayson Nix is an obvious downgrade with Nunez out, both offensively and defensively. Don’t think other teams dont’ know this and if they can weaken the Yankees lineup on both sides, it gives them a better chance to win. I don’t for one minute think that Nunez getting knocked out twice in one week is an accident. I think it is a strategic move by opposing teams.
