    How?? They don’t win at home either!

    How is that considered "doing his job"?

    At least with Garcia you know he's got more range and appears to be a much better defensive SS overall than Galvis right now. If Galvis' bat isn't going to make up for his average defense, it's not worth it for him to be in the game over Garcia.

    Galvis graded as one of the 5-10 best SS defensively the last few years.

    Jeezus, I didn't realize he hadn't hit any. And playing half his games in GABP, no less.

    This year the numbers aren't as favorable to him.

    He's 31 and isn't as good defensively as he was even 2 years ago.

    Last I checked Galvis had the 4th highest OPS on the team. Garcia barely has a 700 OPS in the minors. Galvis isn’t great but replacing him with a kid who head never played above A ball was not a good idea. Now if they had thrown in the towel and traded some guys I wouldn’t have an issue with it.

    I mean, if you lack reading comprehension it is.

    The point is about 20 appearances meaning nothing, and if Winker in this season can slump this long, anyone can.

    You use the depth and track record of the player. That’s the point.

    Fair point.

    But they should win more at home and were over .500 there last season.

    Bad News: I think it’s safe to assume this team isn’t that good.

    Good News: Because of the expanded playoffs, they don’t have to be good to make the playoffs.

    So was Galvis available to PH in bottom of the last for 3 guys hitting worse than him?

    In the last two weeks, Galvis is hitting .138 with a .460 OPS.

    Cards trailing Cubs so maybe Reds will pick up 1/2 game on them.

    Brewers won. No comment.
