Even after Uribe returns Guillen says he is going to continue to use him, but he didn't name him a full time player.

Ramirez definitely looks like he's benefiting from a little more playing time. He seems to be on his way up.
Offensively Uribe just kept going down.

+another. Any day without Juan Uribe in the line up is a fine day for me.

At this point I am alright with him and Anderson in the lineup at the same time.

I like it. His level of play seems to go up another level each week. Still pretty raw on defense, but makes up for or it with some great plays.

April batting average: .138, May batting average: .265....and he adds a little more speed and small ball ability to the line up.

Good to hear. He's making positive contributions right now, and I think he's in the process of earning the starting shortstop job for 2009 as well.

Agree and as of right now, I'll take it!

Sounds about right. I wouldn't really emphasize one over the other. Splitting time and trying to ride hot streaks should work fine. Try to figure out good matchups for the two, and use them in situations where their plusses can be emphasized.

It's actually up to .278 for the month of May. Plus, a lot of his outs have been productive.

KW should have no trouble moving Juan at this point. He could be a cleanup hitter on several National League teams (only half-teal is needed for that statement).

Moving Juan? Yes. But for what? A minor prospect at this point.

We don't trade any talent in the organization unless what we get in return helps us THIS year. With our luck, we'd trade Uribe, and Ramirez whould pull a fibula the next day. Uribe is good insurance to have around in case of injury.

I see nothing wrong with keeping him. He could fill in for any infielder and for late innings defense.

He could break a fibula.
