Valbuena has earned the 3rd base job as far as I'm concerned.  It's his to lose at this point.

Stewart just hit a rbi double down on the farm

 

 

He's going to need more than one double to earn the starting job. I hope he starts tearing it up. I'm still holding out hope he can live up to his potential, no matter how unlikely it is.

 

i hope so too, i just found it ironic that he posted that and then the rbi double happened.

First batter up on, is not a good start.......a 2 run lead is like walking on thin ice against these Reds.

Stewart's ABs don't mean anything "down there".   He'll have to show he can hit here when he's back..  Nothing else will make a difference one way or the other.

If he wasn't hitting at all, it would matter.

At .229 Valbuena is not setting the world on fire.

Maybe......but I doubt it.  Stewart would still be given the same chance to prove himself at this level where it counts.  This IS where it counts.

Did anyone see that guy in the stands on the Travis Wood foul ball?  He missed it, but was then begging the guy behind him that did catch it like it was his key to a better life.  #Sad

True.......and I wasn't defending or even being pro Valbuena.  It was all about Stewart.
