Can someone please tell me what he’s done to deserve a fan base? This guy can’t field, hit, or run. Remember getting picked off at 2nd in Detroit?

And if we’re trying to make this team better, let’s consider this. Instead of using guys like Inge and Harrison as the utility, how about getting a better 2ndbaseman and making Neil Walker the utility guy?

Face it, he cant hit leftys and he’ll never be more than a .270 hitter. I’m sure I’ll get crucified for saying “The Pittsburgh Kid” should be a bench player, but I’d rather see this team get better.

I just wrote the same thing. He can hit and he makes contact. we don’t have enough contact hitters on this team. It would be a big improvement when you just need someone to get a bat on a ball, like runner on 3rd and 1 out late in the game. You can’t have strikeouts!

If i was in there and threw my curveball, he would have struck out. I wish i was joking

He did look okay last night actually. I was surprised as well. No….Harrison is a AAAA player. He can’t hit here, his speed isn’t enough to steal bases here, and his defense is just average. He’s a tough guy, plays hard, but a younger version of Inge with way less power

If he had same average and had hit 3 homers I could see that he had some value for bringing some power off the bench. But 2 doubles in 87 at bats, 2 walks and being hit once doesn’t cut the mustard.

And no I’m not saying some was going to trade for either one of those players. Just saying that at least one of them will be gone. Josh Harrison can play muliple positions and replace Inge. Barmes would be a. Defensive replacement at shortstop. so i see Inge being let go.
