    Too Early To Give Up On Jeff Clement?

    Clement has the best AB/HR ratio on the team this year, but power alone won't cut it. I can't really say that I've ever been a big fan of Jeff Clement.  At the start of the 2010 season, many were doubting him as a first baseman for his fielding.  I was less...
