Exactly. I like Skip as a 4th OF.
The problem is that he might currently be our best 2B. That's not great.
At least the guy can hit a little. Greene can't hit and his D hasn't been a buttload better than Skips.......observe last night......yes, hit hard, but please, you're standing 4 steps on the grass and your PROFESSIONAL! I've seen beer league softball players at least glove that ball or keep it in front.
Cards batting averages are on a freefall............hurry back Puma.
"Tony finally benched him and they won a Championship"
At what point did #10 bench him?
That's my thought exactly on the Skip vs. Tyler comparison. Tyler can't hit AND apparently plays worse D at 2B than Skip...which I thought was a logical impossibility. Really anyone on here that if they had to pick now, they'd pick Greene?
I'm not trying to be down on Greene, just that he seems to want to work his way off the team when the time comes. I guess Robinson or Carp2 would go before Greene at least. I assume they want to keep Komatsu for Rule 5 reasons, right?
As far as i can remember Skip was very good until he got hurt in the playoffs.
He also won game 5 of the NLDS against Roy Haladay in the first inning last year. The guy is good no doubt about that im not sure why people hate on him so much. Other then him being pretty slow for a small guy.
Hes too slowcant play second baseis often injuredwe have other options in the outfied
i like him ..he did have some big hits early in the playoffslast season.he killed us at second during the season though
After he injured his oblique...
He was benched!
Right after he was probably Our MVP for the NLDS against the week Phillies!
Crazy, isn't it?
That's like saying the won the WS in 2006 because Tony benched Rolen.
We won the nlcs and the world series with nick punto playing second basehis defense was a big part of those seriesalso in game 5 against philly in the nlds
skip is not a second baseman
