I want to start this by saying I don't completely understand all the stats that show up on this blog to post them only enough to know good/bad so if those stats go against the basic "tv" stats as I call them please share them. but
anyone else think we are going to have a log jam up the middle when Barty gets back. Brignac is quietly 8-17 over a 5 game hitting streak with 3 doubles. Not sure if it is confidence, new swing, or just getting used to big league pitching but he seems to be coming around. My fear is that Maddon is too much in love with the Gabe platoon and will send RB back to Durham. What are the chances that we see a platoon with Brignac/Zobrist at 2B/RF against RHP and Zobrist/Kapler against lefties. Brignac is 12-37 against LHP with 5 XBH, combine that with his above average defense and I think he gives us a better chance to win than a combination of Zobrist/Gross against Righties. The problem with this is that Gabe Gross would not get hardly any playing time anymore. Would it be best to trade him or to keep him on the bench. I think that if we can use Gross as a chip to possibly pick up a bullpen arm than do so but if not keep him around.
