    A knowledgeable cards fan from another board posted this about Skip

    "Benjamin Neumann • 29 minutes ago −
    Take it from someone who has watched skip ascend from the minors under the wing of Jimmy Edmonds and TLR to steal at-bats from more deserving people for years. Yes, Skip can hit .300 but BA is hardly a worthwhile metric. His OBP is not predicated on walks so if his BABIP dips he dips. He has 0 power and a .300 hitter with a sub .700 OPS is not something I care much about losing. He plays 0 infield defense though he is passable in the outfield.

    Also his performance tends to dip inversely with his playing time. The more you plug him in the less he can do, as pitchers tend to start figuring out not to feed him any fastballs and go away with breaking stuff. K's incoming!

    All in all this is a meaningless deal for the Cards at this point, but for all the people who didn't get a look cause we kept plugging this low ceiling option year after year I hope they are as glad as I am to not have to waste a roster spot on this "feel good" story any longer. Whoever the prospect is coming back glad to have you."

    What we need is a righty that can play 1st base, so Adrian can have a day off.

    Lets throw some tortillas on the field every time he hits a HR, RBI or scores for the Dodgers!

    I think Skip is the kind of energy and team guy that we need. He gives our bench even more flexibility.

    The Dodgers are stockpiling SP and utility guys, I'd like to see a power hitting righty that can come off the bench and pinch hit for Ethier when the situational lefty comes in the 7th or 8th. I also think it is painful to watch Ethier hit in those situations.

    Good luck Skippy. You will be missed.


    He is an incredible professional. you will like him.


    Regardless of his on-field performance. He is at least a professional in everything that he does. And is the right kind of guy to have on that bench for your team with so many dynamic personalities.

    You'll enjoy him. Maybe not for his on-field performance, but for what he brings you everyday.
