The joke here is that you keep insisting that Showalter is at fault for not playing Mench everyday. Try checking out some stats.
Mench vs. righties this season: 37/155 (.239)
Mench vs. righties career: 125/486 (.257)
Meanwhile, Nix is at .318, Matthews is at .303, E Young is even hitting .305, and Dellucci is at .274 vs. righties.
Simply stated, Mench is platooning because he is not a particularly good option vs. righties, at least not in comparison to others on his team.
If you're going to rip the manager for not playing your guy, at least present some facts to support your case instead of just spouting off.
