I want him in the middle of the line up with those numbers, because if other guys are on base for him, he is going to get them in. I dont know what kind of stroke he needs to 'find', he is hitting the ball well.
I was referring to the homerun stroke, but I'll take what we've been given. You're right that there isn't anyone else in the team that gives you confidence when they come to the dish with RISP. I guess I was looking at him in a bigger picture, rather than just how he fits on this team. Some times I forget the big holes we have elsewhere in the line up.
I'm just like everybody else. I have two arms, two legs and 4,000 hits."
