Sung to to tune of "How do you solve a problem like Maria" from The Sound of Music. But I'll spare everyone the YouTube video this time around. This thread was inspired by Clay who asked a great question in the game thread:
I know, he never really was afforded much time there. Last season because of injuries, he was bounced around from second to third to first like an Abbott and Costello comedy routine. The year before he was taken out on an illegal slide in the minors.
So maybe he needs one solid season, like this one, where he can take his lumps and not worry about blowing crucial games. Still, I can't ignore my eyes that tell me no matter how hard he works and how many innings he's given, he'll always have rocks for hands and crates for feet.
I understand not wanting to bounce Murphy around some more. I completely get them wanting to give him more time. But here's something to keep in our back pockets: If Wright requires an extended stay on the DL, maybe they should bite the bullet on Murphy at second and move him over to third, probably his best position after first base. (Second base is a distant third). Then bring up V-Spin to play second base.
Just a thought for a dreary Wednesday, an hour and a half before game time.
