`

So I have to assume at this point the Angels have zero interest in Grant Green ever playing 3B.

 

It does sound like he's going to get a shot there at some point, but I recall a quote from Scioscia I believe(It was on the Angels official site I think, but I'm having no luck finding it), that they didn't feel he was up to that challenge quite yet because of his limited experience there and he was working with Griffin, etc etc.

It just seems like what better time to throw him out there and give him some ML experience at the position?

good idea, put 2 hackers with no plate discipline at top of the lineup lol scioscia has no baseball brain whatsoever.  its amazing how someone in the game for 40 years can have such little understanding of how to fill up a lineup card.

 

and i bet the return of kendrick means the return of losing and bad baserunning.

LOL, it's so obvious that Sosh doesn't have a brain.  I mean, look at his record.

i don't think it's that he doesn't have a brain - he just clearly doesn't value OBP that much, at least in regards to his lineup construction.
