Re: Not going to panic, but something I don't understand
Marty has a point in that they need to seriously think about Bruce as a platoon player.
There are other issues or improvements they could make to the lineup and/or bench, but Phillips and Gomes are struggling right now, as is Rolen, and without those guys hitting, combined with Bruce doing nothing at all offensively, it's a recipe for a .500 team or worse.
Better hope they learn how to handle tough lefties better and top of the rotation pitchers at some point.
3 shutouts in a week is really, really ugly. Its tough watching all of this starting pitching going to waste.
