Re: This team needs a shake up...
After last night's debacle against yet another pitcher with a 5+ ERA, changes have to be made. Cozart is my sacrificial lamb after last night's base running blunders. Not only does his plate approach drive me crazy, but he's not been real steady at short on this road trip.
This team needs a spark. I know I will get crucified, but I'd move BHam back to short, put him on the major league roster and play him over Cozart. Yes, I know he's not hitting at AAA...Cozart is not hittting at the Major League Level. Yes, I know he might make an error every other game. Having this kind of speed on the major league roster, would take a tremendous load off our hitters. He has the kind of speed to score on a pop up to deep 2nd Base or in some cases a ground ball back to the mound. He can steal bases when he wants and this team can't "move 'em over" consistently.
It may not work, in fact, it may fail miserably. But, this lineup isn't working either and I don't see things changing. No one else in baseball has a weapon like we have sitting down at Louisville. The day he puts on a major league uniform, is the day he arguably becomes the fastest player to ever play in the major leagues. I've sat and watched every game on this road trip and last night after the 2nd base running blunder, I turned the channel. They are not fun to watch at all!
