I don't disagree with you at the moment, and I am one of the biggest Lough supporters out there. I will say this though, I would like to see him get like 2 weeks of games to try and get some timing and rhythm. Playing in a game a week can't be too comfortable.

Buck is no dummy. He has seen enough. I would rather seem more of him than Snider honestly....and that is saying a lot.

I liked his walkoff vs. Boston. I like his defense. I am not saying he should play every day but I am fine with having him on the team.

This is where I'm at. However, I think he would do better offensively if he was given more repetitions.

This is where I am. He definitely doesn't need to be getting regular starts. Start him once a week and bring him in late in games for defense as often as you can.

We have enough trouble as it is getting guys who might be able to hit at bats to get in any kind of rhythm (Pearce, Snider, De Aza, Young). We can't waste those at bats on guys we definitely know can't hit (Lough). With that said, I think De Aza has earned the right to sit for awhile.

Me too. But I don't see him having a spot when Schoop returns.

I just don't see how you keep de Aza over him. Lough is clearly better defensively and....

de Aza - .632 OPS

Lough - .718 OPS

Lough is 1/10th the cost and under control to boot... how can you keep de Aza over Lough?

Not sure why De Aza and Snider are in the "might be able to hit category" and Lough is in the "definitely can't hit" category.

Totally agree. Right now my depth chart for corner OF is Snider, Young, Pearce, Lough, De Aza. I am under no illusions about Lough's offense but I would rather watch his poor ABs than De Aza's poor defense and bunting with a guy on third base.

I would try to pass De Aza through waivers. Maybe he gets claimed. With how he's hitting now it's a big maybe.

I don't see the O's swallowing 5 mil. De Aza has a better bat than Lough regardless of what the SSS offensive #'s show at this point.

I have been wondering about this. All i can figure is there is a misconception due to the sporadic nature of Lough's playing time. So like he starts once a week and goes 1 for 3 (meh), then 0 for 1 (boo hiss), then 0 for 1 (boo hoo), then 1 for 1 (eh a single in the 8th whatever). And so people get an impression that he doesn't hit at all and he actually bats .333 that week. I dunno.. spitballin.
