Re: Situational question, just for fun
I took a day to think about this.
I think if that situation happened, and you asked Billy if he wanted to come up to the Reds and play SS, he'd immediately give an enthusiastic YES. Maybe you bring him up and let him take grounders for a few days, or play SS in AAA a few days, and then gradually work him in. But yes, I would do it.
The guy started switch hitting as a pro , that must've been extremely difficult. If that didn't rattle his confidence, I doubt playing SS for a month or two in the bigs would rattle/damage him.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
