I disagree. Paul is not a veteran major league player, he's been mostly in the minors. Corky Miller has had a minor league career. These are not the guys I'm talking about.
Hannahan and Izturis are veterans and I think they have done their job, but bench warmers can only add so much. Further, Derrick Robinson and Lutz are inexperienced and could be replaced by much more experienced hands who IMO would add more.
The three guys carrying this team on offense are veterans. Choo and Phillips. And Votto is just great, whatever you call him.
Look at the numbers. Look who is failing offensively so far.
I knew this wouldn't be popular around here, for obvious reasons.
