you may be right, but it won't be for the reasons you mentioned. He hits both righties and lefties well. His platoon situation wasn't one of putting him in only against lefties and Blum righties.
I think most people tend to forget the kind of prospect that Ensberg was. He is 3rd all time in HRs at USC, his power is no fluke. He is not much different than Blalock. He was ahuge dissapointment his first year and hit very well last year.
Like I said, you may be right, and I do agree Tex has more upside, but I can't figure out why so many people have so much faith in blalock and so little faith in Ensberg?
