Byrnsie is gonna have to call a team meeting (position players only). Put some fire in their bellies... a boot in their ass. Especially, guys like Chavez and Durazo who are sleepwalking through the beginning of the season. I'd sit Durazo and bring up DJ now! Chavez... move him down to #6 or #7... somewhere he feels comfortable not having to come through.
Maybe call Macha into the meeting and tell him what a pitchout is, also.
Okay... in Billy We Trust, right? But, Thomas has got to go to AAA. End the freakin' torturous experiment and bring up somebody (anybody) who can hit. Kielty... I'd keep him only because that hair is worth some comic relief the few times he actually gets a hit.
Thank God for our young pitching. Without them, we'd be in the friggin' cellar. It's a crime to have this low a team ERA and not be in 1st place.
