6 in a row!
Hall's surprising play leaves Ned Yost in somewhat of a quagmire, but a pleasant one at that. He now has what amounts to three middle infielders for only two starting positions. Right now, neither Spivey or JJ Hardy are hitting the ball well. Spivey has struck out in roughly one-third of his at-bats, while Hardy has struggled to even get the ball out of the infield. So who gets to play? I don't know, that's why I'm not the manager!! But if I were, I'd seriously think about sending JJ down to AAA to try and work out his swing there and let Bill Hall take over at shortstop. There would be a huge drop off in defense, as Hall's defense has historically been questionable at best. If Hardy were to be sent down, I'd call up Steve Scarborough to serve as a back up middle infielder.
For what it's worth, Scarborough is quite the emergency pitcher. He pitched 2 scoreless innings yesterday to pick up the win for Nashville.
