Gathright MIA?

Postby Brownie » Fri Apr 07, 2006 7:38 pm

Baldelli's on the DL, so why is Gathright out of the starting lineup...again (2nd time in 3 games)? Is 31-year-old Damon Hollins so good Gathright becomes a part time player?

What I'm missing, here? Why in the world isn't he starting...every game?

Not even all that reasonable, really. Just the only thing that could possibly make an inkling of sense... I feel like there's a bunch of monkeys using their feet on typewriters in Tampa's front office sometimes... :-t

Hollins just hit against Pete Walker (RHP) in the 7th. Looks like Gathright won't be pinching hitting over hollins against RHP right now.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

:-[ Is Damon Hollins really that good that they can bench Gathright for him? What are they thinking.

Well they put Gathright out as a defensive replacement after Hollins AB. Goes to show how much faith they have in his OBP right now.

I don't know what his minor splits are, but he's 8/22 against lefties in the majors.
