with Furcal out of the lineup Pierre is going to play everyday.
with the money they are paying Jones fair or not he is going to play on a regular basis.
today Sweeney is simply getting a game at DH.
between Kemp and Ethier, are you saying Kemp should play all the time and Ethier should be a bench player? Ethier is right there in production with Kemp.
(AVG) Kemp- .302/ Ethier- .298
(OBP) Kemp- .340/ Ethier- .371
(SLG) Kemp- .460/ Ethier- .463
(OPS) Kemp- .800/ Ethier- .833
He's not platooning.
Wait, he is platooning with Ethier, and it's the right choice since their production is about equal.
Make up your mind! Personally, I think benching Ethier is the best choice (assuming that Andruw's contract keeps him in the starting lineup), and not only because Ethier's on my opponent's team next week.
