Yeah, but you know FCB, I can live with Mes playing most of the time. He has a lot to learn IMO but his hitting isn't terrible. But Hanigan just doesn't hit anymore and Corky Miller belongs in the coaching box at this point.
I'm hung up on this, I know, sorry I've repeated this, but I don't think you can have non-hitters in an NL lineup. Maybe one non-hitter if you have six or seven excellent bats.
At minimum, Miller should have been used on the west coast and Mes today in a more head-to-head situation.
I won't keep on this, on to the next issue.
