I agree with you on this ryno4ever. For a team to be anywhere successful you can NOT have your leadoff hitter with that low of a BA & OB%. Right now he is swinging at almost anything coming up there. Now look at the defensive side of things. Think about who gives us a better defensive RF or LF? Who thinks that Alfonso would have made the 2 plays against the Pirates or even caught the ball in the 1st game vs the Brewers? I guess the only positive thing I can say about either MB or AS is "MB takes more walks".
IF Fuld were playing in a 10 game stretch would he save us a run or two? I think he would so that means 1 of the other "highly paid professionals" would have to produce even more at the plate. (To make up the differance) In previous years I have seen Soriano go on hitting streaks where he can carry the team for a week or 2. But we have NOT seen anything close to that this year. I want them to win and win NOW I don't care what name is on the back of the jersey.
