Kearns has looked like this year's WMP over the last month. He's just a complete mess at the plate looking worse than most pitchers. He's a major weak link in a lineup. And that is a big blow to an offense. You have to have guys like Guz, Nick, RZ, and Dunn all on fire to make up for a lineup with a pitcher and a guy that is an automatic out and rally killer. Dukes hasn't been productive either, but at least he is not someone that other teams pitch around others to get to. You can't give other teams an out to pitch to both at number 6 and number 9 in the lineup.
