Boesch had his chance, and he blew it.
Dirks just in the 2 spot has these numbers- .324 AVG/ .398 OBP. he's not going to be replaced with those numbers.
the only way Dirks wont be in the lineup in the 2 spot is if he has the day off.
That's great that you have that much confidence in him. There's no way to say who is right or wrong at this point.
My opinion is that he doesn't have the track record to support the early numbers and he WILL slump at some point this season, probably soon. When that happens we will see how much confidence that Leyland has in him. Dirks' strikeouts are on the rise and Boesch has been on fire. We'll see what happens next.
Just about everybody goes through a slump, at some point, every season.
