After the Davis trade I figured maybe we were dumping salary to sign a shortstop. Then I remembered who our owners are.

How bout RF. D'arnaud is hitting almost exactly the same except he is a defense first position. In contrast he has struck out nine times to granderson ' s 18. Rbi 2 for d'arnaud granderson 4. 4 freaking rbi from your 4 hitter. That is davis and bay numbers. D'arnaud is hitting 7 and probably 8th if they bring up flores. Also d'arnaud making major league minimum. I think both will turn it around but people gotta go easy on the kid. He is not the only one struggling.
