The Skip Schumacher Experiment

...is failing, at least in Joe Strauss' opinion from the Post-Dispatch.  It's even up on mlbtraderumors.com.

I am shocked I haven't seen more discussion on this site about Skip's errors.  He just made his fourth today.  It's getting to the point where something's gotta give, and according to Strauss, Tony's considering having Skip as the DH tomorrow.

I've been excited throughout ST because of Skip at 2nd.  The thought of having his bat in the lineup everyday and also having Ludwick, Ankiel, a platoon of Duncan/Barton/Rasmus in the outfield having their bats in the lineup everyday is a great thing.  However Tony is dissapointed in how Skip's doing so far.

I have attached a poll to this post because I am curious as to what you all think the next step should be.  Personally, I want to keep Skip at 2nd because I still feel the good outweighs the bad.  I'm probably in the minority on that one, however.

Keep in mind though; if Skip goes back to the outfield then you can bank on Colby Rasmus being the starting CF for AAA Memphis for certain where they will probably keep him until September, hoping to groom him to be Ankiel's full-time replacement in 2010 when Ankiel's contract is up.
