The Eldred campaign
Wed, 25 Apr 2012 23:23:18 GMT —
It's an election year, so what better avenue to pursue than a campaign?
But why not?
Baseball is a numbers game and Eldred certainly has those:
.388* - batting average
9* - doubles
13* - home runs
20* - number of games and number of consecutive games he's had a hit
23* - runs scored
31* - hits
35* - runs batted in
81* - total bases
(*denotes categories led in all of International League )
Despite the numbers, Eldred is behind Prince Fielder at first base and Fielder isn't going anywhere.
The solution should be designated hitter.
The Tigers have struggled at the DH spot in their last five games with a .150 average and 0 RBI's.
Do you think the Tigers should give Brad Eldred a call-up or trade him to a team that would give him a chance in the Majors?
