I'm not saying Dickerson shouldn't get any atbats. I like the guy, I'm one of his biggest fans. I just think Laynce Nix should get the bulk of the playing time in left field right now while he's crushing the ball. Play the hot hand.
You're right about Hairston, but to be fair Nix's career numbers are even worse.
