ladson, he's batting .267 ... who has he shut up? if he finishes the year with decent numbers (.275 AVG, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 25 SB), then we can maybe talk. let's see him raise his OBP and play error-free baseball before saying his critics shouldn't have to worry. damn.
but at the same time, I wouldn't go the PA route and say he ran into one.
