The problem with this team isn't station-to-station baserunners. It's no one besides Rios, Konerko, and Gillaspie has a plan. They don't swing at strikes, so they never walk. Hard to manufacture runs with a .290 OBP. Beckham will help, if only because Keppinger has been near historically bad, but they just don't have a lot of professional hitters. What they think they see in Caspar Wells baffles me. I expect you'll see a lot of auditions for the rest of the year, starting with JorDanks. He looked very good at Charlotte and he's a hell of a lot better in cf than DeAza. Play him 4 times a week and see if you got anything. Obviously, you'll also see Phegley (eventually), and whoever they get for Crain and Peavy.
