    How long do we put up with EE>?

    Did anybody get to watch todays game and EE's AB's. He looked as if he had no clue.

    Well he looked like a .140 avg hitter.


    My question is how long do we have to sit here and indure this kind of performance before we pull the plug. It seems to me the attitude was EE is the answer at 3b and were excited to have him back.

    He doubled down the line last night in his first PA. Let's not overreact to one game.

    That seems to happen alot around here on both boards.
    Problem is ,I dont think the poster's comments are based on one game alone. EE has played 20 + games this year and has 6 rbi.
    On 2 swings : A GS and a 2 run single at Houston. I really think EE has it in him but if he does, now is the time to prove it.

    And in the first 20 games of the year he was allegedly playing with a BROKEN WRIST. After 200 or 300 ABs start a thread like this, but two days after coming off of the 60 day DL with a wrist injury that he had been hiding from the trainers for however long is a bit absurd.

    You obviously don't like Edwin. The reason people are excited to have him back is because of his career numbers and because they have fresh visions of Adam Rosales, Jerry Hairston Jr., Paul Janish, and Richar dancing in their heads. Unless they trade for someone else it would be very poor judgment to pull the plug on him at all.

    This thread has to be a joke.

    Isn't he like the current longest tenured position playe on the team? Seems like yesterday he was coming up into the big leagues. I like Edwin, prob. more so than most. I think people may need to reevaluate their expectations of him. He's a slightly above average major league third baseman. I think his production last year is about what we ought to expect. I mean, I don't know..........can he still get better?

    I think Edwin will be just fine. Sure he's struggling but not everybody can come back from the DL and crush the ball. Actually, very few people can do that. It will take some time to get back into the swing of things, but I think when all is said and done, if he's not moved before the deadline, he'll be one of our biggest contributors in the push for the playoffs.

    I really dont understand why people put so much faith in EE. Just watched him commit yet another costly error by overthrowing Hanigan. He's never going to be what we expected.
