Why all the Mercer vs d’Arnaud business?

Jordy Mercer has outplayed him in the minors and majors so if anyone deserves a shot it is him. He has not set the world on fire but he has even been a better offensive player than Barmes in the few AB he has. He has shown far more pop and better plate discipline than Barmes.

Also, will it be McPherson, Wilson, Locke, or someone else when we do need another starter?

1) Punctuation
2) Brock Holt will never be even a mediocre SS.

Believe, I wish he was a SS candidate.

Just because they called him up, doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to be taking any playing time away from, or leap frogging, Mercer.
