Juan Pierre went hitless in Saturday's loss and is in a 1-for-14 slump.
Pierre was supposed to be the Dodgers' fourth outfielder, but now he's back starting over Andre Ethier. The problem is that manager Joe Torre thinks Pierre is the better player of the two if both are playing at their usual levels, even if all evidence suggests that it's not the case. Ethier currently has the better OPS by more than 100 points, and he's combined for 34 runs+RBI while using 103 at-bats. Pierre has 22 runs+RBI in 85 at-bats. It's simply absurd that Ethier has started three games to Pierre's nine this month.
Pierre needs to sit his ass back on the bench, and Torre needs to insert Ethier back into the starting lineup. Ethier hasnt had back to back hitless games all season.
Pierre could be a valuable pinch runner/pinch hitter, but Ethier should be starting.
