Re: Kearns to go to Instructional League for 3B
Agree, Island Red -- this is an experiment in the instructional league. The timing is right. Plus, if O'Brien is looking to trade a hitter, he can go into winter trade talks without seeming so desperate now. He can say that they're looking at keeping all 5 of the big bats in the lineup.
My main doubt is that it puts Griffey back in the OF. Not sure he can stay healthy out there.
I give a lot of credit to Kearns for being willing to try.
