This, only he would already be the everyday option if: 1) his defense wasn't so terrible and 2) he could keep from getting hurt. I'm as big of a Dom Brown fan as anybody, but throwing in a bat who is already struggling at AAA into an anemic offense just doesn't seem to be the best move. On the other hand, he might be struggling more out of frustration than anything else seeing as he and everybody else knows where he should be and it's not with the Iron Pigs. I certainly don't have any answers, but this offense is so bad SOMETHING has to be done. It's pretty disheartening when our glimmer of hope lies in the knees of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard's pitiful bat. *sigh*
