If they called him up, Dusty wouldn't even play him anyway. Not when he's got standout guys on his bench like Jerry Hairston and Freddie Bynum.
Oh Ryan Theriot, we hardly knew ye! Was he the answer to our offensive woes at 2B? Most likely not. But we'll never know since he logged a mere 4 AB over 2 weeks. During that span Neifi went 6/28 (.214). With offensive output like that, the bar is set pretty low anyway, so why not let the youngster take a crack at it?
But just remember its Neifi's defense that makes him valuable <cough> game-losing double error against Braves <cough>.
