I forgot to add that he is the anti-clutch and grounds out to the first or second basemen 200 times a year, making him one of the highest ground ball candidates in MLB.
I dont see the "winning player" that everyone else seems to see with this guy.
Thanks. Its hard to get some of these people to take an analytical look at things.
Skip should be a bench player, injuries withdrawn. IF they think he is anything else, then maybe they are in love with more than his game.
"If Schu starts 162 games, he will cost you 5-6."
Skip has been a regular for the past 4 years and has never put up a negative WAR. Consistent hitter, .290 BA/.346 OBP. Great clubhouse guy also. He doesn't come up in the 9th in an April game and you've got your panties in a knot.
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
