Lutz was at AA where he was not hitting much. There was very little reason he had to fill the roster spot. There was no reason he had to start today.
This is a game vs. the Cards, the team's big rival, in St. Louis. Must we treat it as a tryout camp?
XPaul and Robinson are far more advanced players. Or even use Hannahan and play Frazier in LF for a day.
Lutz is a fine prospect, he'll have his day. I don't see why it is today.
Because Walt brought him up. Dusty's going to give the kid a shot sometime...what's wrong with today?
And I was only saying that in that specific situation, a deep fly ball would've plated Bruce...and Lutz has more power than the other 2. Not saying he's a better player or would have more impact on this game.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
