Yep. Not that I am saying RA should start every day though. Though I have not been that impressed with Hatteberg at 1B so far.
2B should be a tandem of Freel and Phillips.
After giving this much deliberation and personal reflection... and with Griffey's "volatility".... Dunn's mediocre defense in the OF (though it is still very early in the season)...
I am kinda warming to the idea of giving Denorfia a shot in the OF (LF) and moving Dunn to 1B.
But that is contingent on the fact that we dump Womack and open up a roster spot.
But it's probably never gonna happen because, as much as I like Krivsky, he seems very apprehensive of "dumping" anyone (that would be an admission of making a wrong decision). He thus has "forced" this hodgepodge of players onto Narron, and Narron has adopted this approach (or solution) that he has to give these guys playing time to keep them happy.
Not a good situation to be in IMO.
I've not followed the situation that closely; but I don't understand the choice of Abad over Denorfia.
