What exactly is going on with the Edwin Encarnacion situation? He's now played 8 games for the Louisville Bats, which would lead you to believe that he's fairly healthy.
Maybe it's the frustration of the losing streak, maybe it's the annoyance of seeing Juan Castro run out there instead of Felipe Lopez (or if Lopez needed a day off, of moving BP to short and playing Freel at second), but I'm beginning to get really pissed off about some of the decisions being made.
There's no reason for Encarnacion not to be playing third base every day in Cincinnati if he's healthy. None.
There's no reason for Juan Castro to ever start a game. Late inning defensive replacement? Fine, I don't like it, but I can accept it. But starting? You might think that's a good idea if you have your head up your ass.
And this is all apart from the bullpen, which I prefer not to think about, because what's the point?
Moves need to happen, and soon.
