please....he'll be back hitting 5th very soon and will hit 30 out this year, even with an abbreviated season due to his injury

So, you're saying he's up to .207!!....actually not true, since he went 2/4. I'm actually a Tex owner but the truth is he's lucky to be in the lineup at all, not worrying about batting 8th.

When you have 6 guys in the lineup hitting over. 300 -- not a lot of options for a Kltuz hitting .185 ... and falling.


That's not a comment on Tex's potential or what he WILL hit. But the fact is if you are a manager sometimes you play the hot hand. You don't punish your performers. Tex has been as frigid as a penguin.
