Re: Erardi: No Platoon In LF Bad Move For Reds
I can't believe anyone actually thinks there won't be a platoon in LF. Dusty was simply building up Gomes' confidence and giving him credit for having a solid (yet inconsistent) 2010 season. Gomes was really one of the leaders of the team and Dusty doesn't want to disrespect him by saying there will be a platoon. He wants to make Lewis earn it first.
I also like Erardi very much. And I'm sure deep down he fully knows there will be a platoon in LF this year: Gomes against lefties, Lewis against righties (with some Heisey mixed in at times of course).
