Now that Max Moroff is gone, WHO is making the 3rd inning run to the concession stand for Clint Hurdle ??
It was a familiar sight for a few months. End of the 2nd and low and behold Moroff was doing the running for the Skipper’s munchies. No more. He is back at Indy and have to wonder who will assume this role in his absence.
- My vote is John Jaso, the .214 hitter who has accomplished just one hit in 6 weeks. He’s a bit ambidextrous since he bats left and throws right…perfect for carrying a drink in one hand and some snack in the other. But he does have that unruly hair so that could pose a sanitary concern.
- My second vote is for Chris Stewart. 11 years in the big leagues and he has a total of 9 home runs and 86 RBIs. In ELEVEN YEARS. Production? C’mon. He hits at an average of .181, well below the Mendoza line. Remember the guy who was blasting the ball all over the park back in June? He was 3rd string Elias Diaz, a heavy hitting catcher that at least has a .266 average. Why he is not starting as the back up catcher is a mystery that only Clint Hurdle can answer.
- Third choice is this Benoit pitcher bum. Two outings, two home runs and P-L-E-N-T-Y of men allowed on base. He’s not needed in the bullpen until later game (if ever) so why not him to make the run? He brings 40 years experience in eating, has played for a dozen teams, so probably knows the ins and outs of the tasty treats at most ballparks.
We’re 4.5 back, having some fun, but still scratching our heads with some decisions.
