BC needs to play Diaz Every single game! Harris is in a prolonged slump! Harris cant hit better than Diaz, Cant steal, has no power, AND cant get a Damn bunt down to help us win a game! BC and his loyalty has killed us this year! If JS did NOT trade Langerhans, Langy WOULD STILL be starting against Righties! BC also KEPT AJ in the Cleanup spot when he was hitting UNDER .200! I mean come on! I like BC, but this loyalty crap has cost us some games this season! If any kind of descent Cleanup hitter was hitting in the Cleanup spot for us they would be putting up A-Rod numbers RIGHT NOW! Imagine IF we had Tex for the whole season hitting Cleanup! Wow!
But anyway to Diaz, LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS: Diaz CAN hit right-handed pitching, quite well as a matter of fact. He's hit .331 with a .794 OPS in 134 at-bats against them this season, compared to crazy .372 and 1.023 OPS in 164 ABs vs. lefties
For his career, it's .335 with .910 OPS in 382 ABs vs. lefties, .314 with .782 OPS in 322 ABs vs. righties....
But YET BC is still playing Harris OVER Diaz! Unbelievable! We have 6 games left EACH against BOTH the Mets AND the Phillies! We will need Diaz in those games! We NEED to win 10 of 12 all together against them, IF we want to even think about winning the East! If BC keeps on starting Harris against Righties, then he has TOTALLY lost it as a manager! I like BC, and respect what he has done for us, but his loyalty crap has got to go! Diaz will HAVE to be a difference maker for us IF we want to win the East! And Diaz was in last nights win! We probably would have LOST if Harris was in there! I like Harris, but Diaz DESERVES to start everyday RIGHT NOW!
Who agrees with me?
