Right. That's really ok with me. Grant Green isn't going to cut it. They need to bring in a real veteran who is capable of leading us at 2B through a playoff run ala Stephen drew last year.
I don't want to make a decision after 4 games and 12 at bats, but Grant Green is pretty disappointing.. Dude was supposed to have a really good bat and be sub par defensively, and he's been sub par everything. He looks like a scrub out there lol. 0 hits and 6 Ks in 12 at bats.
Maybe we should've brought Green up earlier to give him a chance, because the trade deadline is in 9 days and I don't think Beane is going to let this team fail at 2B like this. Beane knows that this team is good, that they can win a championship now, and he knows it's not gonna last forever. If he doesn't make a deal for a second baseman I'll be really, really surprised. I expect him to be aggressive.
We needed a SS last season and he grabbed Drew, who was Decent.
I never thought I'd say this but I kinda miss Mark Ellis. At least he was a great fielder lol
