He isn't hurting the team at all RIGHT NOW.
Ever heard the expression "we'll cross that bridge when we get to it?"
Fin.I believe that you believe Riggleman won't bench him. You may be right. I'll even concede that you probably are. That's not the point. I just don't understand why you guys break out the drama every time he's in the lineup. Everyone knows how you feel about it by now.
Have you ever heard of starting Pete Orr because you respect veterans?Call me loopy, call me whatever... but I'm sticking to my guns on this one. Riggs will not stop playing Guzman or Taveras, or any other veteran that hasn't done anything in years because he respects them.Rizzo will have to forcefully remove them from the roster for anything to happen.
The problem is that Desmond was "allegedly" awarded the job. He got the job not because he is younger, but because he is better than Guzman. You can't bench him every other day for a guy he beat out. Plus not even factoring that Desmond is young and needs the development. Play him everyday and platoon Guzman/Kennedy. That way everyone wins. The fans win. Riggleman wins because he can still worship the veterans.
Willie Harris batting third? I understand his line vs Ubaldo is nice but third? With the lack of Willingham and Zimm this is when Id LIKE to see Guz batting third.
But, what's to support he's even capable of that?Since he got lasik, his line is .302 with a .328 OBP.
Random note - I was wrong, I thought Martin or Mock might get the call in Marquis' spot. did you see Atilano is going to get called up and pitch friday??
Joel Hanrahan has allowed 6 runs in 1/3 of inning. That trade keeps looking better and better...
Holy crap - does anyone else see what is happening in Pittsburgh? Brewers are up 16-0 on Bucs. Joel Hanrahan has allowed 6 runs in 1/3 of inning. That trade keeps looking better and better...
Anyone remember that Pirates guy that signed up here and started talking trash about how they fleeced us?

I think we should just play Desmond SS, Kennedy 2B and Guzman RF with Maxwell and Willie Harris playing every other day. Willie vs Righty, Maxwell vs Lefty but Guzman the usual starter.
Guzman's a switch hitter. Give him a trial by fire and run him out every day.
I know I was just stating that if Riggleman likes the whole 'make everyone happy' thing than every other day sit Guz or move him to second and allow Willie and Maxwell time. With the way Guz has been hitting, though, its nice to slot him in the 7-8-2 hole.
This is just the second time in the last 100 years that there's been a matchup between a guy who just threw a no-hitter and a guy who just threw a shutout. After Al Leiter's no-hitter he faced a guy who had just thrown a two-hitter. That's it.
