Corey Hart keeps getting replaced. Why?

Postby gatorgreenwell » Fri May 30, 2008 1:54 am

Maybe it's just me but I seem to keep seeing that Corey Hart keeps getting replaced late in games. Does anyone know why? He's hitting well on the season and he gets replaced even in games in which he hit well. He's not considered a gold glover but I don't think he's a bad fielder. It's got to be more than just standard late game lefty vs. righty type substitutions because it always seems to be Hart that is getting replaced. I would love to know why Milwaukee's most consistent bat is hitting the bench late in some games. Anyone? Thanks for any insight.

I haven't noticed him getting replaced much, but one annoying thing I notice is how many times he's attempted to bunt with a runner on. The lineup behind him is terrible, what is he doing bunting when he's been one of their best hitters..

yeah ive noticed that he gets replaced in double switches every so often as well. its really only 1 ab at the most each game so its not much to worry about, but it certainly is annoying.

Can't comment on other games but today the manager pulled him for a bonehead play he made on the bases. He hit a double and Fielder stopped at third, instead of looking at Fielder, Hart just kept on running thinking he had a triple. Hart and Fielder were both stuck at third base and Fielder was tagged out. Yost then double switched, putting the pitcher in the spot that had just come up.

It seems to happy once a week or so, but I think thats mainly cause he has been in position as the last (or next to last) batter in a double switch and its easier to replace an OF then a 2B/1B with the lineup they have.
