Tomase: 'Idiotic' to let Aviles bat leadoff
Wed, 28 Mar 2012|
John Tomase from the Boston Herald sits down with Andy Gresh to talk about the rumors of Mike Aviles leading off and the bullpen.
-- -- -- talked about scoring -- may be batting him lead off I felt hitting leadoff crap that is if I don't get that off Mike Avila C you're telling me he came in the camp. Not even guaranteed of having a starting job and now he's leadoff hitter. That makes no sense whatsoever that 340 on base percentage at fifty games that people are talking about last year. He was 260 in Kansas City in the fifty games of forty came to Boston to me als very right now by -- pass that -- -- My -- to go to the bullpen for a bullpen preference because. I do think in terms of style play Bobby Valentine will adapt and he'll be adaptable if if the best thing is to hit and run. Bob -- a -- -- I think Bobby will do that I don't think that's that big a deal. But he's been known -- being great at managing a bullpen and maybe that's part of the reason why you wanted Daniel Bard back there. How do you think people manager we understand -- the -- -- going to be in the closer is but what about informal ball. Those guys yeah I mean that's the million dollar question right now yeah I think. You know a lot of it is going to be determined to Biden on base policies by rosters -- Michael bugs out of options it's well this spring they don't want exposed to waivers. I think bodes well that's. You start looking -- other guys spread them I think you know Vicente Padilla is a guy that they're hoping to give them what Alfredo service gave them last year which was. Completely out of nowhere great production literally.
