In fact, I don't know if I've ever disagreed with you more about anything. I mean that with the upmost respect.
I'm actually a little shocked.
Seriously. Your best argument FOR Willy Taveras is that others haven't hit?
You can do WAYYYY better than that.
That might say all that needs to be said about one Corey Taveras.
I'm not arguing for WT. I'm just saying that the knocks on him are obvious and are just repeated on here, time and again in thread after thread. I'm also saying that if his offensive woes continue, I'm confident the Reds will bench him.
At least he's played good defense -- and that point I will argue if others disagree. Every defensive measure I've seen shows that he has been good defensively this year.
I'm also saying that the team's offensive woes go way beyond Willy Taveras.
How about some threads criticizing the others with low OBPs or miniscule slugging percentages. Just to break things up a little.
