    AGAIN, YOU DON'T WIN A DAMN THING BY REPLACING ONE SUB 700OPS GUY WITH ANOTHER NO MATTER WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IN DEFENSE IS.

    AGAIN, IT'S NOT LIKE ANYBODY IS DEMANDING GARCIA OVER ANYBODY THAT IS GOOD.  YOU WANT GARCIA OUT OF THE LINEUP, THEN FIND A WAY TO GET JOSE BAUTISTA ON THE TEAM.  THEN I'LL AGREE THAT GARCIA DOESN'T BELONG IN THE LINE UP

    LMAO, only a Bautista is worthy enough to displace a guy who's been a STIFF ?  Bautista had a 900 OPS. There were 85 OFers, including Jackson, that were ahead of the 675 Garcia last year.  This is before we talk about his shit defense.   The idea that a guy like that  "belongs in the lineup", is ridiculous. Not only has he done nothing to earn it, his handicaps make it unlikely he ever will.  Luckily for him, he's with an organization that has a long history of ignoring failure, overlooking flaws and banking on the hope that guys will "turn the corner" if given enough chances.


    You completely missed the point

    You claim 85 OF were better last year. How many of those under 750?

    Using your logic, the White Sox should get De Aza back so the White Sox fans can enjoy is 755ops from 2015.

    But what is really ridiculous is your selective reading.  Nobody here has claimed Garcia is a building block.  In fact, everybody here was hoping he'd be repealed and replaced.  Well it didn't happened.  Which leads your to another ridiculous idea that we should write off some kid that still has some promise for the likes of Austin Jackson?!?!?!?!?!?

    The White Sox are trying to win the 2016 AL Central.  Not some APBA league using 2015 cards.  At this point in time, Garcia is the obvious choice for the RF

    David Ortiz got turned into a DH in his mid-20's. If a guy can't field, he can't field.   Of course, you don't want 25 years old to become DH's, but you also don't want to lose games because your RFer gets a late start on a catchable flyball and it ends up scoring 2 runners.
    Let's see if Garcia makes any progress in tracking balls in Spring Training before saying he's the "obvious choice".   It's not his birthright just because he's 25.
