So what I'm not even allowed to mention defense in a post?
I mentioned both compnents and suggested that using Nix probably hurts in BOTH areas, and definitley hurts us defenisvely.
It's not like Nix is a good hitter. Generally speaking, the reasoning to get him on the field would be his defense, but I suppose you don't care much about that, so why do you want him playing?
