We'll see.
Will you stop feeling so bad for yourself? If anybody had suggested we replace Pierre with De Aza, it'd get that kind of reaction.

De Aza is a career minor leaguer for a reason.

Since May, Juan's OBP is over .340. OK, he doesn't do a lot of things well, but he's been able to get on base fairly often and he is more the prototypical lead-off hitter that Ozzie loves. Maybe De Aza would put up nicer numbers, but I don't know if he's a better fit for this team.

I wouldn't mind him coming up and replacing Andruw Jones. Would be nice to have a backup OF that could play all 3 positions well.
