Tony Clark take a seat.

Postby Pogotheostrich » Tue Jan 10, 2006 1:57 pm

Tony Clark, who hit 30 homers and drove in 87 runs in just 349 at-bats, likely will start the season coming off the bench, Melvin said.

"After everything Tony did for us, certainly it's a difficult thing to do but we think Conor is up to the task," Melvin said. "Plus, we always have Tony as a backup, and we can do things differently if somebody struggles or there's an injury or something."

Thanks for the info. I had him as a late sleeper this year but I guess I can drop him further down my list.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I'd like to see Conor Jackson get some playing time too, but I think the D-Backs are going to need Clark in the lineup as much as possible if they want to win any games at all this season-

Shortstop: Craig Counsell
Second base: Orlando Hudson
Third base: Chad Tracy
Right field: Shawn Green
First base: Conor Jackson
Left field: Luis Gonzalez
Center field: Eric Byrnes
Catcher: Johnny Estrada

Not exactly an RBI factory right there, but it looks to be a good enough team for a fan to get behind.

I'd also hate to see Cintron go in a trade... the kid has potential. Great bad-pitch hitter, but he also needs to learn some better plate discipline.
