Our number 3 hitter has scored 1 person from 1B this year! ONE PERSON FROM 1B!!!!. In other words unless he comes up with men on 2nd or 3rd he RARELY gets an RBI. BTW, he also has 19 GIDP. .300 hitters can be hitting .300 and still be slumping.

    Is it fair for the 17th most productive first baseman to bat 3rd every day? Is it fair to have a guy grounding into 19 double plays continue to kill rallies? Is it fair to pay a guy 8 Million dollars to put up sub .800 OPS while playing the easiest position on the Diamond to replace? OH but he is a nice guy….and Chad named his kid after him.

    Austin Kearns is 2 for 2 with 2 2R-HRs, in the second inning in the AAA game. I sure hope this guy lives up to his early promise.
