2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Eric Patterson getting playing time in LF? Is it all part of Jim Hendry's master plan to eventually put 8 second basemen on the field at once?
(HeeSeop from Chicago)
Heehee, Hee, but I argued in favor of plugging in Patterson back when Soriano was hurt the first time around. He might have value in trade, and he might have value to the organization. Either way, playing him makes a decent amount of sense.

Or, it's a chance to have nine guys go Cesar Tovar on us, and play everywhere in a game. A crowd of second basemen might be the crew to do it with. ;) (Christina Kahrl)
