he looks terrible at the plate and in the field. how does the manager not see this? another right fielder veteran stuck with in spite of all other evidence to the contrary. Encarnacion is batting .180 in the postseaon, and yet La Russa will probably bat him cleanup in game 3.
time to find a new right fielder, or at least platoon there. taguchi and spezio have played well enough to earn time there, while duncan and wilson can platoon in left. let encarnacion pinch hit or be part of double switches. at least sit him for one game, just to get his head on straight.
