If your hamstring is bothering you, it really impedes your swing during your follow-through. He's probably playing hurt and should have started the season on the DL. He knows Baez is nipping at his heals and needs to stay on the field... Head games again with Castro; it's a theme.

Rubi Silva is an OFer, and Josh Vitters will play LF in AAA.

Yeah, I knew that... :wacko:  maybe I was thinking about Taylor Davis before he got promoted to AA. It's Bruno they're converting to be a catcher, right?

Rob Dibble plunking Doug Dascenzo with the bases loaded, walking in the winning run. I was there!

Castro vs. Bonifacio over the last 3 years batting in 1-2 slots:

 

Castro

483 AB - 62 R - 146 H - 25 2B - 3 3B - 11 HR - 45 RBI - 32 BB - 72 K - 16/8 SB/CS - .302/.348/.435 (1)

732 AB - 97 R - 208 H - 36 2B - 7 3B - 17 HR - 65 RBI - 32 BB - 117K- 15/8 SB/CS - .284/.319/.422 (2)

 

Bonifacio

480 AB - 70 R - 137 H - 20 2B - 3 3B - 04 HR - 29 RBI - 47 BB - 107K- 40/9 SB/CS - .285/.348/.369 (1)

333 AB - 42 R - 085 H - 06 2B - 4 3B - 00 HR - 14 RBI - 35 BB - 83 K - 29/5 SB/CS - .255/.326/.297 (2)

112 AB - 13 R - 034 H - 05 2B - 4 3B - 01 HR - 06 RBI - 11 BB - 20 K - 12/2 SB/CS - .304/.371/.446 (7)

 

Bonifacio is the most productive (career splits) in LF, SS, and CF

LF: 056 G, 93 wRC+, .705 OPS, .313 wOBA

SS: 096 G, 90 wRC+, .698 OPS, .310 wOBA

CF: 105 G, 89 wRC+, .676 OPS, .307 wOBA

 

Castro career as a SS:

SS: 601 G, 94 wRC+, .727 OPS, .317 wOBA

 

I would say that Bonifacio could be Schierholtz's replacement come mid season (Lake to CF, Ruggiano to RF) or Ruggiano's back up, in case he has a "2012 Marlon Byrd-esque" experience. Bonifacio's numbers are actually really as bad as Barney's as a second basemen. He seems to be more comfortable out in the OF.
