Are we just talking about batting average? Eldred could conceivably surpass BA in home runs in one game...

You put Eldred at first over Swisher?

I'm just damn glad you make absolutely no decisions for the White Sox.

Seriously.

No, I'm leaving Swisher in center.

I could care less about BA's defense right now. We can't score runs. Are you going to argue that BA helps our offense more than Eldred? Or for that matter, anyone else in AAA?

There are probably pitchers in the minor leagues that can hit better than BA can.

BA has a higher batting average than Swisher, Thome, and Konerko right now, and Eldred strikes out at rate that rivals the league leaders, he's just what the Sox need.

Have you ever heard the term if you had a brain you could take it out and play with it?

He also has a .391 slugging percentage. He's also struck out in more that 20% of his at bats, striking out more than 4 times more often then he walks.

Yeah, he's the answer. If the question is "how can we make the offense worse?"

I don't mind if you hate me, but you don't have to do it while trying to defend such a listless offensive player.

Is Josh Fields ready to play? Because I'd rather see him.

Where'd you see that? He's active on Charlotte's roster and played yesterday.

Hey, it's slim pickin's down there. We have to call someone up, and he's having the best year down there.

I still say he's a better offensive player than Brian Anderson. Eldred might be one dimensional, but Brian has a zero dimensional offensive game.

This is a zero dimensional argument. You now have zero dimensional credibility.

Care to qualify that? Either part? Seriously, I'd like to hear a reasonable arguement that either:

1.) Eldred has no power
2.) Brian Anderson can hit

Go ahead, I'm waiting. Any evidence at all that's he's been even an average MLB bat.

Still waiting.

*crickets*

Thought so.

Good thing offense isn't everything. Anderson's an elite defensive CF, that gives him value Eldred couldn't hold a candle to.

Just stop and listen to the argument. No one is saying that. We are talking about improving the offense. In what universe is a Swisher/Anderson OFFENSIVE combination greater than what a Swisher/Eldred OFFENSIVE combination? None. And that's what I'm arguing.
