  1. The Yankees should look at Cust as a DH option. Big left handed power bat should fit in quite nicely with their stadium. Probably be pretty cheap as well.

  2. Cust and Swisher on the same team. I know some Yankees fans whose heads would explode. THE STRIKEOUTS! AHHHH!

  3. I’d love to have Cust on the Yankees. I know his skill set doesn’t age well but he isn’t exactly a 35 year old and three years does not a trend make. He would be cheap and has a decent enough chance to produce as well as Damon or Matsui would have at DH especially in that stadium. The biggest downside I see are his platoon splits. Granderson is already one liability against LHP, Cust would just be another one. Then again, 75% of your at bats are usually going to be against RHP so it’s not the worst thing ever.

  4. jack, can you point me to the studies you know of that examine “old player skills” and how that skill set ages? I would very much like to read those and learn a bit more about it.
