What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I was really thinking that today would be Mitch's day, but last night saw the MLB crawl noting that Nap's @ 1B, Yorvit is catching, and FACE is DH'ing.
I guess the only way Moreland gets into the lineup is if he goes to 1B for defense and Nap moves to catcher. Even then not likely to make a difference.
The only benchers likely seeing daylight will be the 2-headed "monster" of Murphy-Gentry.
Oh, well. I guess Mitch going yard in my PS3 simulation for game 3 (played 4 times) is too small of a sample-size, lol.
Moreland seems to have become Chris Davis. Started off hot...great glove....still got the great glove, but too many strikeouts and too many really bad at bats.
Next year do the Rangers simply go with a Moreland and Young 1b combo all season??
I expect that Moreland will continue to be used as he has most of the post season, that is as the first baseman against right handed starters, unless we are in St. Louis, where the lack of a DH means somebody has to come out.
It's hard to get out of a slump when you don't play. Come Spring training, he'll get his ABs back, plus I've read about some hand injury thing, and hitting a hand injury don't yusually go together.
Moreland was pushing .300 BA in June or so. I won't give up on him yet.
Sophomore slump. Everyone has it. Nothing more. Mitch will come out firing next season. He's hit at every level he's been on - it's the glove/speed that kept him out of the majors.
Well, not much with the bat last night, but Mitch contributed with a couple of nice picks that aren't likely to happen with MY/etal at first.
Hope he's in there again tonight.
He has to refine his swing as he has clearly lost it. His swing is now way too long instead of being short and compact.
Still a Mitch believer. But wouldn't be surprised to see JD go after Prince Fielder, either, especially if CJ gets away and Yu goes elsewhere.
He needs to be in the lineup tonight for his D and he is due and has shown he can come up big in a game like this.
