Jeff Kent is showing his age, Hit seems like he can't catch up to any pitch over 88mph
Blake DeWitt hasn't gotten the chance to play too much 2b, give him time to learn the position. In the mean time, Chin Lung Hu would be great for 2b
Sure Hu doesn't have a great bat, but we don't really lose anything in the trade off (Kent benched and Hu playing) but we get a HUGE defensive boost.
As it stands, our infield defense is pretty poor. Casey Blake has bad range, Berroa had really bad range, and Jeff Kent has TERRIBLE range.
Have you guys noticed how anything hit up the middle is a base hit? We lack the range for it
Also, add on top of the poor infield defense....since Joe Torre is determined to keep Ethier on the bench, we have Pierre at Centerfield (need I talk about that?), Manny in LF, and Kemp in RF. Its fairly below average outfield defense...just a something to note. good thing our Pitching is so good
