Serious post: It's time to move him down in the lineup. Put Werth in the two hole. Or bat him leadoff and hit Lombo/Espinosa in the two hole.

Take pressure off him. Hit him 7th or so. When Desmond gets back, he'll have some speed to distract pitchers with.

But he is  struggling to hit in the second half. I keep thinking he'll put it together, but he's being eaten alive by breaking balls

ONCE AGAIN ... the club is winning. 

davey has said all along he likes what bryce is capable of doing at the 2-hole (he's got pop, speed, can bunt, known for his good eye, etc).  is he struggling?  absolutely.  could he benefit from moving down?  probably. 

but with the club winning and everyone else hitting well in their respective slots, i don't see a change forthcoming.
