See, that's where you're wrong. I almost never felt good about his ABs and I was mostly glad to see him go if only because it (mostly) finished off the bickering about him around here, but he took way more flak than he deserved for the level of play he brought to the field, especially considering the way his peers played.
If you want to argue about "well so and so would've done better if they'd played all the time like they should have while Guz rode pine" but that's all hypothetical and I'm not interested in discussing alternate realities today. What actually happened is all that matters.
Most of my problems weren't with Guzman. It was just the fact that he was on the roster that caused the problems. Riggleman had to defer to his veteran. He had to bat #2 every game. That was detrimental. His subtraction was an addition for reasons beyond his control. Now if the team did the same to Pudge, Morgan, Nieves we might finally be respectable.
