This is pretty much where I am. Haseley needs reps against LHP, or he's not going to get better. We need him to get better (or at least to have the chance to get better). He was called up prematurely, due to need, and he's done OK. But he's not here now because of "need," or he wouldn't be on the bench so much.
Yeah, I understand. Kapler is running out the lineups that he thinks give him the best chance to win each game. But the reality here is that "winning each game" is rapidly becoming irrelevant - the club is falling out of contention, because they don't have enough pitching. (We're nine games back in the division; we're only two back in the WC race, but frankly, mortgaging the future even a little bit for the chance to win/lose in a one-game play-in appeals to me not at all). If not right now, then very soon, continuing to give playing time priority to older players who will be free agents in a few weeks (Miller, Rodriguez, Dickerson) rapidly becomes not only pointless, but counter to the organization's best interests.
