Eric Patterson should get the call

Postby Rounders » Mon Aug 06, 2007 2:37 pm

Heard on 670 The Score that he's going to get the call with Soriano going to the DL. If this is the case, my guess is that he'll be Fontenot's backup at 2B, and DeRosa will be almost exclusively assigned to the OF until Soriano gets back. With Soriano out until after the September callups, Patterson will probably be up for the rest of the year.

better to put Pie in center instead of DeRosa IMO

Patterson is a good 2B in the minors though, ill be on the look

My guess at the lineup when Floyd plays would be...

1 Theriot SS - backup Cedeno
2 Fontenot 2B - backup Patterson
3 Lee 1B - backup DeRosa
4 Ramirez 3B - backup Derosa
5 Floyd RF - backup Pagan/Murton
6 DeRosa LF - backup Pagan/Murton
7 Jones CF - backup Pagan
8 Kendall/Hill C
9 Pitcher

This way they have 2 guys in the OF that can play all 3 OF positions (Jones and Pagan), 2 that can play LF or RF (Murton and Derosa), and a RF in Floyd. If they brought up Pie they would have an overload of OF (although I wish they would bring him up and send Pagan down). Some of DeRosa's time will be spent platooning with Floyd and Murton, and then they have him to also give Lee and Ramirez days off (so DeRosa should be in the lineup every day). Patterson will backup Fontenot, and Cedeno will backup Theriot (Fontenot could hit 1 and Theriot 2, but that's still up in the air).
One of the reasons that Patterson gets the call ahead of Pie may be the need of offense from a PH. Yes, Pie's numbers are better in the minors this year, but he has been given the chance and wasn't able to translate it into major league numbers.

Floyd played left last night believe...

Left field is probably the easiest position in baseball, i don't think cliff would have a problem with it.

I'd like to see Patterson start over Fontenot anyway. I like Fontenot but i want to see what EPat can do.

I'd rather go with the guy that has proven during the year that he can play. If we weren't in the middle of a division race, I'd be more inclined to want him to play.

Looks like they're going to try to get him in the OF anyways though.
