(Please see what I said about Robinson in my previous post on this thread).
But honestly who on the current roster could fill that role in the two hole consistently, would be played regularly by dusty, and not be a defensive detriment? No one except Robinson, and well dusty won't play him regularly or bat him second.
Hamilton needs to be playing everyday and Louisville is the place for that. He won't get any better sitting on the bench and maybe getting one or starts a week. His role will be a starting CF and when he is ready for that then he can be called up. I do agree with you about Robinson. I would like to see him play more. He has great speed and if he can get on base he would really help out. I don't know if he can or cannot do that since he's hardly playing.
