    Church should be swinging at anything close to the strike zone. The only Guy I have ever seen that does less with good pitches was Wayne Nordhagen. How is Church not facing Kip Wells? I would rather have Thomas Haden-Church coming off the bench.

    They should DFA Church now. At best he will bring a very low grade prospect in a trade. Probably, he wouldn't fetch anything. He is on the wrong side of 30 and has no future with this team.

    I would bring up Brandon Moss. Moss has 13 HRs at Indy and his average is creeping upward. He may yet become a 20+ HR corner OF in the big leagues. I'd rather see him up at the plate in a pinch hitting role then Church. Also, Moss is very good in the field - probably better than Church.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. As bad as Moss has been at the MLB level... it hasn't been worse than the production Ryan Church has offered up this year.

    I figure Church is playing over Young because of defense but I'd defintely give Moss an opportnity.

    I completely forgot about Delwyn Young. Been a while since he's started it seems. Not that I or anyone really minds. He's hitting somewhere in the low .200's

    I think DY not hitting is simply a case of a lack of opportunities. You can't expect a guy to hit for any kind of average when all he does is pinch hit. Russell always talks about keeping the bench guys active yet Young is getting 5 at bats a week. I'd rather see Young get 5 at bats with awful defense than Church with his godawful offense.

    I'd rather not see either start because they are both hitting well enough to be "automatic outs" . If one had to start I'd probably play Church just because his Defense is better. Offensively they both sort of balance out to be crappy.

    Not exactly great options with the way they've produced. A good reason to support Tocc's Brandon Moss idea

    In all fairness, didn't Church have a big PH in the game Saturday night? While he's not been anywhere near acceptable, I do remember him having some timely hits on occasion. Something about blind squirrels and acorns, maybe?

    He might have. When you look at his BA though.. there can't be many hits
