I gotta tell you, that's not pretty. And still he plays everyday. Alex Gordon found himself demoted and a new position for hitting .194/.342/.323 in 38 plate appearances but Guillen stinks for over half the season and all Hillman and now Yost remember are the first two weeks. It makes no sense and still we're being told to trust the process. Maybe it's just me but I would think the process would find room for a 26 year old with a .270/.410/.494 line in nearly 800 AAA PA's.
I figure at some point Kila will be traded to a NL team, one that already has a very good first baseman. Then when his minor league journey continues Moore can feel confident he won't be proven wrong. After all, he's done it before.
