Man, Lyle Spencer is an Idiot

I understand he is specifically employed by the Angels organization, and has an obligation to be their spin doctor. But this is ridiculous!

"Third base is in good hands. I'm a big Chone Figgins fan; he's a winner, and he'll prove that in a variety of ways, as he has the past few days in breaking out of his slump. The guy had two fractured finger tips on his throwing hand, for crying out loud. Give him a little time to get a grip on his game."

Listen, Lyle (IF that's your real name). I realize he broke two fingers in his hand, but don't you think a veteran should be able to 'get a grip on his game' in fewer than 100 AB's? Besides, Figgins has slugged over .400 only once in his career, and that was three years ago - hardly the mark of someone who owns the starting corner IF job. AND he's averaged about an error a week at 3B over the course of his career.

Plus, anyone who cites Shea Hillenbrand as an option as a cleanup hitter is friggin' insane.
