Is it time?
I used to love Trot as a player and in a previous life, he was a good customer of mine. I think, however, that it is time to cut him loose. All he brings is OBP, pie throwing and that ubiquitous grit. His power is totally gone, he can't run anymore and his D has slipped. As long as he was hitting .280, he was at least able to maintain the illusion of production. I find myself rooting for him to keep slumping. This would rip the veneer off of his hollow value so that the FO would be left with no choice. Choo is not a savior but I prefer his "tweener" package of range, arm, speed, some OBP and occasional pop. It was bad enough when Wedge was leaving Trot in to flail against LHP but against RHP, his OPS is still only .706 with a sub .400 slg(!) What does he bring to the table? Is it time?
