To those who want to see more of Danks, maybe it's De Aza's job that should be on the line.
I know everybody hates Wise because he took poor BA's job, but Dewayne has 11 hits in his last 19 ABs. His baserunning mistakes are inexcusable, but at least he's on base -- unlike many others on this club.
It's a sad state of affairs when Wise has the second highest batting average on the team (.262), and you feel like you need his hot bat in the lineup.
It's not sad to need anyone 11-19 in the line up. Why would it be sad to need a hot hitter in the line up? What does a name have anything to do with it? Whether it's your top player or the 25th guy on the roster makes zero difference.
