Bench ENC

I didn't see the game, but I've wanted him traded for a while. He is a lazy defender. Start Conine and hope Hermidia is ready to help out by the end of the year. Throw Enc in a deal with Willingham/Stokes/pitching prospect to Oakland for Zito/money. They could trade Enc to the Yanks or Nationals for more prospects. We need Zito with Beckett out and Leiter struggling. Zito is pitching great lately with no run support.

 

Sorry to hijack the thread. :D

Encarnacion just needs to settle down a bit. He's been swinging and sliders out of the zone, the exact thing that got him in trouble last year. He needs to be a bit more patient and it will turn around for him. He may be in a bit of a mini slump, but it is nothing compared to what Lowell experienced and what JP has been doing the entire year.

Yes it was a lousy AB, one of the worst I've seen of him this year.? But seriously, is Conine who has gone 0-3 and left 4 runners on really any better?

Maybe, maybe not -- but I can tell you one thing, Jeff Conine would not be swinging at two consecutive 3-ball -in-the-dirt sliders in a tie ballgame in extra innings. That 3-2 pitch he swung at was just flat out lack of concentration -- the ball bounced before it even got to the plate.

 

His lack of effort is unacceptable -- he just doesnt give a flying f**k. When he was walking back to the bench with that "whatever" look in his eyes I felt like sticking my arms through my screen and choking him to death. I haven't disliked a Marlin this much since Dan Miceli.

 

When Beinfest finally comes to his senses and trades this clown I'll be the first to send him a thank you card.

I disagree. Enc looked quite disappointed when the panned through the dugout the next inning. I see all these comments that Enc doesn't care, and they all seem completely unfounded to me.

Maybe we're watching different players -- but calmly putting away your batting helmet is not what I perceive as disappointed. Where's the emotion? How can anyone justify swinging at two consecutive terrible sliders in the dirt? Simply a lack of concentration/lack of effort.

That was one of the most frustrating/bad at bats ever to watch...Guess he was just trying too hard to be the hero rather than just take the walk.

As witnessed by his great stats driving in runners and terrible ones making those all more frequent for the rest of the team.
