Yes, some growing pains for Robinson but I think he's earning a spot on the team. Not a bad back up to have so far.
I've said all winter — they talk about this team winning the division — and my comment is, they won't win it because, at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up. - Marty Brennaman
hi-c hurt hate to see that
I think Robinson has looked really good at the plate tonight, I am not saying he is going to b an all star, but I think for the options we have for left field right now, I think he is the best option we have, he is the best defensively and he brings speed to the lineup which we have none of.
The only reason why I don't put him In center is because if u do that and then he struggles then u have to move choo back to center and I think that would not be good to keep moving choo around, now if u give Robinson a shot and he does good for an extended period of time then yes move him to center, and I would b all for Robinson batting in the 2 spot, can't b no worse than coz art has been, I feel really bad for zack he is struggling and apparently is not gonna b moved out of the 2 hole.
Did we really just pinch hit izturis for Robinson...wow..I might b wrong but wasn't he 1-1 with a walk...izturis really..
I went back and checked thom said he could have an oblique problem....that sucks

True that is what I heard last week also.
Is Robinson still dealing with a muscle pull, I am surprised he isn't gettin more time, and I also think lutz should get more time, I think both have far more upside than Paul, I think Paul is great coming off the bench late in games and pinch hitting.
I wish they'd give Perez a look as the LH side of a platoon. He's a.750-.800 minor leaguer with a bit of pop. Needs putting on the 40 man tho which may be the deterrent. Plus he's lefty and they really need a RH bat.
