Okay @Philip good know that you aren't basing it on evidence, can't provide a link to an article or anything other than what your own eyes tell you. You are a mad at a player for not performing and equating it to laziness. Let me help you.
Davis works hard on hitting with Craig Gentry.
Davis want to be a veteran leader.
Davis puts on 25 pounds of muscle.
Davis formulates an offseason plan with the general manager.
This is what evidence looks like.
I am saying that I don’t judge players solely on a single attribute or weakness. Also, though this is the second straight year Alberto has had pretty disparate L/R splits, those do take a long time to stabilize and he did not have drastic splits in the minors so I’m willing to await further data. And finally, while we could find a better overall 2B, I doubt we could do it for less than $3 mm.
Let me ask you this:
1. Is there someone available for 2B who you think will be as good and as cheap or cheaper?
2. If not, given the current state of our rebuild, do you think it’s worth spending more than $3 mm to get a better 2B? If so, who would you like to sign and at what price would you guess we can get him?
Not sure I am understanding you here. Are you saying the a projected 3M salary for Hanser who has a 266/284/367/651 vs right-handed pitching is acceptable? And right-handed pitching is probably at least 70% of the pitchers faced.
