Buck and Tabby just mentioned on-air that Gibby is considering using Francisco at 3B a little bit in Pittsburgh.... and having Lawrie play 2B.
We know Brett can do it. We know he's a tremendous 3rd baseman as well. Gold glove caliber I would argue.
BUT in light of these comments, I got thinking... what the heck, why not give it a whirl for a couple of games.
Could it work out, and become something we want to consider even more going forward? Sure it could happen!
I'm leery of taking Brett off 3B again, but given how pathetic our 2Bs have been the past two seasons.. I wonder if we could just move Brett to 2B for the rest of the season (and maybe more?) if we can find a solid 3B.
I don't think Francisco is good enough defensively to out weigh the benefits of his offense, but we've seen plenty of all-glove-no-bat played at 2B this year.. to very little success.
Think there's any chance Brett plays more than just a couple games at 2B this year?!?!
