That was evident all throughout last season in things that were said, and the fact that Williams insisted on platooning him with Geoff Blum even though Blum was more or less stagnant.
However, the move to get Lamb was not Williams's doing, it was that of the front office. Yes, it will give Jimy incentive to platoon his clubhouse nemesis, especially when you consider that he is a notorious sow starter (and this spring is no different), but look at it realistically. Ensberg is a young power hitter with .280-30-110 potential, if he can play for a whole season. Lamb is a journeyman utilityman, who was just last week in danger of not even making a Major League roster. One home run off some shitball in spring training isn't going to change anything.
As for Ensberg's recent departure from camp, it sounds strange, but chances are it's just some sort of family sickness or something. Players don't like giving out that info.
If you can get something good in return for Ensberg, yeah, you might as well trade him as long as you have a good backup plan. But don't just jump ship for no reason; he will meet expectations in 2004.
