If those numbers are similar, why are the K rates relevant? Maybe if the K rate wasn't so high, Springer's numbers would be WAY better than Trouts! :nana:...

re: DAT celebration: Springer is coming! Harrell DFA'd - Prominentwon
Disagree with you. RF is tough to master. The angles are different. You're watching the ball from a different angle in RF. The tails off balls in RF are more difficult in RF than they are CF. I get what you're saying and, yes, he can play RF, but the point is that C was saying he shouldn't ...

[quote]I was just providing facts as to why Luhnow's proposition for keeping springer in the minors doesn't hold water. If you think he needs RF experience, then you put him at RF. You don't platoon him through other positions. [/quote] Why not? Fowler has a history of injuries. Fowler may no...
