1) This really degrades an offense that is already terrible.

I think people overlook the offense at times. While it is not something to brag about, its not the worst out there.
Church is a solid young hitter who was on a tear before getting hurt last year. They have Vidro and Soriano, both fantastic when healthy (Vidro's never healthy though
), and Guillen gives them the boost...that they just lost because of the injury.
While it doesn't look good, I think its possible to make the arguement that it is not a bottom 5 offense.
