Nieves can throw the ball and catch it unlike Bard. Bard just scares me behind home plate because you know his defense is going to bite us in some form or fashion every night. Nieves is swinging a decent bat right now and has been going to RF a lot lately. No reason for him to only play once a week. At least split the time like 60/40. not 80/20 like it is now.
Bard - 317.1 Innings played, 3 errors, 2 PB, 9/28 CS/S = 32.14, .986 fielding %
Nieves - 285.0 Innings played, 4 errors, 2 PB, 8/25 CS/S = 32.0, .982 fielding %
So, as you guys were saying... Nieves is THAT much better than Bard?
