    It's not personal. I was referring to Lamb's disappointing half-seasons every year.

    I said nothing about what kind of a person he is. Why do some posters try to
    make everything personal?

    As far as Cron, too many maybe's. And, as I've posted, I feel for him . . .

    But it is about a manager depriving the team of a slugger, by not giving him a
    fair chance anytime during the season.

    Yes, Lovullo playing favorites (as you posted), even to the detriment of the team.

    I made nothing personal...you called Jake Lamb, an MLB level player, good teammate and better person a loser. You want to say his play is frustrating? You want to say he is injury prone? You want to be angry that he is taking away PT from whomever? Fine, but a loser is certainly not a term I would apply to Jake Lamb.

    You're right. I broke my own rule. I should have said that Jake's performances in
    the second half of seasons have been extremely disappointing, year after year.

    This year, Jake missed the first half, so all he has is his 2nd half performance,
    which approaches the Mendoza line.

    Especially with the Minor League's top power hitter wasting on the bench,
    waiting for a chance to help the weak hitting D-backs.

    BTW, Cron, as Lamb, has played both 1B & 3B. He couldn't be any worse a
    fielder than Lamb at either position. Or any worse a fielder at 1B than Walker.

    The D-backs have had a severe problem driving in runs. This season in Reno,
    Cron has 105 RBI's in only 305 official at-bats, while being shuffled back and
    forth. He is an RBI machine! At the age of 26, he is not getting any younger.

    What manager in his right mind wouldn't give this 6'5"-250 lb. slugger an
    opportunity to help the team? It is like giving Torey a key to a deposit box
    containing $100,000 and he throws away the key. :shrug:
