With Hatteberg getting on base at a .460 clip, it's puzzling why he gets grief around here, and it's even more puzzling why he gets that grief at Aurilia's expense.
Hatteberg and Aurilia have both performed admirably and should both continue to be in the rotation. Hatteberg will sit tomorrow for Aurilia with Davis starting.
