...for filling out the everyday lineup than the current guys he signed up this offseason.
1. Decision to extend Ross or cut bait with Larue and cash.
Ross is horid thus far but Larue is nearly equally as bad.
Larue .136BA .167OBP .273SLG
Ross .083BA .077BA .083Slg
2. RH bats for platoon and bench. Decisions were between Conine, Craig Wilson and possibly Rich Aurillia.
Craig Wilson .143BA .280OBP .143SLG
Rich Aurillia .324BA .375OBP .405SLG
Conine .333BA .385OBP .625SLG
3. Decision was to go with Gonzo vs. Izturis vs. Lugo (Assuming Lopez is not an everyday SS)
LUGO .316BA .340OBP 402SLG
Izturis .259BA .294OBP .336SLG
Gonzo .313BA .361OBP .344SLG
I would argue Hamilton was a suprise that knocked out guys like Crosby, etc.. for an additional OF spot that we better thank our lucky stars or the offense would be worse.
All in all, we have a tepid offense, but I don't see any names that we were possibly looking to fill out the remaining roster that would have improved the situation. Until we get better production out of the meat of the offense besides Dunn, we'll continue to struggle much. EE and Griff simply have to be bigtime or we're in a bad spot.
