Battle it out with bats.... and I hope Phillips uses a corked bat and gets most of the licks in.
We already know what Womack can (or can't) do. IMO - he shouldn't even be in the equation. He is just "muddling the waters".
Dump his butt and bring Denorfia back up. Play Freel and Phillips at 2B.
The thing that bothers me is that Phillips, regardless of his "problems" in Cleveland is still, IMO, a young, raw, undeveloped talent. I want to see this kid given a chance and what he can do. Does he possess the potential, and can he be straightened out?
If he doesn't get the playing time, then we'll never know.
This organization has got to come to a decision on this and quick IMO. And they need to start "weeding out" guys like Womack, Abad (he's 33 yrs old, and has proven little)... and yes, even RA after this year.
But this bottleneck at 2B is simply ridiculous. It's like they are saying "We really can't make a decision at this stage. We're waiting for someone to step it up."
How can anyone when Narron is trying to give them all playing time? That is really limiting guy's A/Bs.
So, with the options presented above... I went with the first.
