on paper, this looks like a really good matchup. on the other hand, we are starting pete kozma at second.
i think being "kozmaed" should be the oppopsite of being "wally pipped." if you tried to define it, it would mean something like: being so bad they replace you with a sub-replacement value player, just for the change of scenery.
it's probably a bad sign for tyler greene's career if tony la russa's statement that "he needs to play everyday" is true, rather than a polite way of explaining his demotion based on poor and sloppy play. greene's upside right now looks like a palatable utility player, which would not likely entail everyday play.
