This is one thing that's always bothered me. Veal can't find his release point against LH's, so they keep throwing him out there against LH's. What sense does that make? He has good enough stuff to get RH's out too. Throw him out there against some RH's and let him find his release point. If he doesn't, bye.

Agreed on De Aza. He has 31Ks in April which is a pace for 180Ks if things don't change soon. This is Adam Dunn territory minus the 40HRs. He is also hitting only .229 with a .272 OBP. This is not acceptable for a leadoff hitter. Also, as you pointed out, his defense has been very poor this year. However, Robin has done him no favors playing him in LF lately where he has come out and said he is not nearly as comfortable there.

I thought he said last year he's more comfortable in LF than CF

That's what I thought he said also.
When Viciedo was hurt last year they moved him to LF and Wise was in CF just like this year.

Below is an article from March of 2012. I was wrong, apparently, it was RF where Alejandro said he felt uncomfortable. Not sure where he stands on playing LF vs. CF but regardless, he has looked much worse out there to me and it isn't just because of what happened last night. He took some interesting routes at The Cell during the homestand.
