The Reds will score an additional run about every three games with Jimenez in the lineup instead of Juan Castro.
4.84 rc/27 Jimenez
2.55 rc/27 Castro
Those who don't see a big difference in their offensive stats aren't looking at the right stats.
So why don't I love this trade to death?
If hearsay means anything, the guy is lazy and a bad teammate.
"He's the laziest teammate I've ever played with—that's 10 years," Ryan Klesko told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "The kid has no desire. What can you do? He didn't want to work."
So why bring in this guy unless he's going to start? It's one thing to have a clubhouse cancer if he's producing. But I don't see the point of bringing this guy in as a backup.
Anyone from Chicago have any qualitative analysis on why his stats went so far south in June?
