Personally, I have had my Pie and dont want seconds.
To put it lightly, I think its time Pie took a place on the back burner. He is batting a whopping buck 67 while still getting extensive playing time. His loopy swing is not over-compensated by his speed which cant be utilized when he isnt on base.....OBP of .259. Even then hes only 1 for 3 on steals.
I'll save good ol' Ty Wigginton and his 19 total bases in 17 games for another day.
Alright I know Melvin coming back is going to be huge but this is a festering wound that is going to have to be answered sooner or later. Solution Nolan Reimold. As I'm sure many of you know, he is tearing it up in norfolk. He has 6 homeruns, 1st in league, is batting .417, 3rd, OBP .486, 2nd (only behind montanez), and had 2 homers last night. Just throwing it out there, lets bring him up with Wieters. The transition will be nice for them, not going in it alone, and plus, Reimold cant be as bad as Pie because even a blind dog finds a bone now and then.
I think that we could win a few more close games in the future with this change.
When should Reimold be brought up?
