With this season being over, I'd like to see him starting against every righty he can, just to see if he can figure them out with some more looks. If not, there needs to be a move made to get a platoon partner for LF for next year.
Why do that when you could just bench him for Phil Nevin?
I agree that Murton needs to pick it up with righties. I also believe that the inept coaching staff for the Cubs won't help him. And lastly, Phil Nevin is now 2-for-18 (.111) since starting in LF. Murton may be struggling, but he still hits better than Phat Bastard Phil.
