Why does Efren Navarro still play?


Recommended Posts

It seems increasingly possible that Scioscia's first choice playoff lineup will involve Navarro playing LF, given Hamilton seemingly will have to DH. But why the hell are we continuing to play a corner outfielder who isn't very good with the glove and can't hit a lick? He has a .447 OPS and .228 OBP in the last two months (2 XBH in 94 PA in that time, in case you're wondering). He might be the only Scioscia decision this year more perplexing than the endless continuation of the Boesch experiment.

Oz just why do you have to search for something to bitch about on the last couple days of the season? He is an expanded roster call up to give Pujols a break. What's the ****ing big deal about singling the guy out?

Awesome job of reading my post, Eric, and totally missing the point. He's not an expanded roster call up and he isn't giving Pujols a break...that's the whole freaking point.

It's not like he'll be starting come Division Series time...

That's the point, it seems like he will. Hamilton will be a DH, at best, it seems like...so he's left choosing between Cowgill, Boesch or Navarro. And it seems like he'll take Navarro against lRHP.
