Imagine!

Imagine, considering the way our offense is flailing, if we had a guy on the bench who had been granted only 17 at-bats so far this year. But in those 17 AB's he had 5 hits, two of which were doubles and two of which were home runs, and he had 5 RBI's to go with 4 walks. And his OPS was an astounding 1.193!! And he was batting nearly .300! Can you imagine how hard folks here would be clamoring to get that guy into the lineup every day and clamoring to fire Mike Scioscia for keeping him on the bench? Can you imagine the radio callers? The media?? UPDATE: The point being NOT that we may want any such particular player, but that we may want to think a little harder about the "guy who is wasting away while the team crumbles" complaining. That "guy" is not necessarily certain to turn out to be such a good thing, no matter what numbers you pluck at.
