He has good, not great numbers at AA. That does not translate to being a solid hitter in the majors for a 20-yr-old kid.
I agree that Snider has been a huge disappointment. Since he is on the DL, I don’t think they can include him as part of a trade. Too bad. I thought this was a good move when they got him, But it looks like he will never be a major league hitter. I think Schierholtz would be a very good addition to this team.

He has ruined the RF/1B platoon. His ineffectiveness has led to playing Gaby too much against righties.

I’m all for just waiting it out until Polanco is ready though. No need to try to make up for something by giving too much up.

I really doubt that happens, but stranger things have happened.

Morales is a switch hitter who has solid average and big power from the left side of the plate. He hits for a high average and less power from the right side of the plate. Perfect fit for PNC Park. Morse crushes left handed pitching and can platoon in right field with Garrett Jones, who beats up on right handers. Right field defense would suffer a little but the offense would pick up significantly with these moves. The Snider can just go away.

Sounds like a good way to keep Snider around even after they make a trade for a right fielder. I’m thinking Schierholtz is heading our way and T. Sanchez will be sent back down. I think he is the best option. Seems to hustle and play decent defense. Doubt there is any ego to deal with. Then in 15 days you deal with the Tabata vs. Snider debate.

Too bad it was using the foot instead of the bat.
