  1. Nothing like a 29 million dollar DH that plays 120 games a year max. What value…….

  2. The DH argument had more validity before last week; as you point out – he's now on the DL with a broken bone – that he got AT THE PLATE.

    Unless they keep him on the roster purely as a pinch runner, he's still going to be at the plate, dodging errant pitches and foul tips. Leave him at third as long as he's a league average fielder; when it gets to the point that he can no longer stay on the field, THEN move him. Five years left on the contract? – its not like the team should be in any rush to decide. They have years.
