Shuck recalled


Recommended Posts

I just think with Long having a good spring and early start to the season, he'd have a better chance at minimizing the loss of production from Hamilton.  Unless they move Calhoun down in the order, we'll have two slappy hitters at the bottom of the order.


While Shuck did well last year, he's still nothing more than a 4th outfielder.

He did? .300 OBP and .774 OPS is nothing to write home about.

Yes, but in is certainly not embarrassing. Those are solid numbers from a rookie, and equates to a very good fourth outfielder. I can do with or without him, but there is absolutely no guarantee that Long would do better in a platoon situation.

I thought you had his OPS a little too high. But a .333 OBP for a guy like him is great. Taylor I know you are not like this, but there is this belief out there that if a player isn't an absolute beast then they suck. There are role players, bench/utility players/platoon players and they are all needed, especially for a championship caliber team.
