Never mind his comments, dude is finished. Even when he makes contact, he looks slow....Corky Miller Slow... chugging down to 1st base. At this point, he is a liability in every aspect of the game.
Is this really our cleanup/#2 hitter for the playoff(s)?!
What needs to happen?
Hamilton to CF, Choo to LF, Ludwick to Rolen's house to watch it on the big screen.
What will happen?
"Ludwick bats clean-up, dude. He's a vet. And anyway, ya gotta split up those lefties. It's in the book."
Ya know, a Ludwick filled, Hamilton-less lineup might be enough to squeak one past the Pirates in one game. But St. Louis? C'mon now...
I would like to think that Dusty is limiting Hamilton's exposure to keep the scouting report on him in check. But I have a feeling the lineups we've seen the past few nights are how it's gonna be for the playoff(s).
Not. Gonna. Get. It. Done. He's signed through 2014 too. Yay.
