Pena/Kearns situation???

Postby lbbaseball14 » Sun May 01, 2005 8:19 pm

Once Pena returns from injury will he start over Kearns? Or will they be platooned?

Pena is going to play until he hits a huge cold streak. They aren't going to keep a guy who has been hitting homers at the frequency he has on the bench. Hopefully Griffey bears a greater load of the benching than Kearns, though.

They'll platoon, with the hot hand getting most (but not all) of the starts.

I agree with the above. I think Kearns will see more bench time. He had a couple not-bad games while Pena was out, but he didn't tear the cover off the ball like he needed to. Pena's hitting .341/.383/.886 with 6 homers in 44 at-bats. He deserves to play until he stops hitting.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
