Twitter Poll: Who should be in right field?
On Friday, I asked a question to my Twitter followers: Are you happy with the right-field platoon of Willie Harris and Willy Taveras? Why?
Of the 40 people who responded, 35 made it clear that they were not happy with the right-field platoon, while five were OK with the situation.
Here’s what some of the Twitter followers had to say:
@CraigsOnABoat: It’s time to let our young guns sink or swim. Roger Bernadina is ready and has a much better makeup for right field than Harris/Tavares.
@NotRizzo: Absolutely not happy about Taveras. Mike Morse is a much better option vs. left-handed pitching.
@NFA_Brian: I would rather see Bernadina get a chance to sink/swim.
@emmi1966: I’d prefer to see one guy have the job.
@tylerradecki: I think the team should stick with Bernadina and give him a chance instead of Taveras. See what Roger can do with a platoon.
@LeperMessiah: No. Neither is experienced in right field and Taveras is not a Major League bat.
@SacksJacked: There are better options, but I’m limited with 140 characters.
@federalbaseball: Taveras/Harris? Hmm, so about that long-rumored trade for an outfielder?
@NatsEnquirer: It reeks strongly of the old Nook Logan/Ryan Langerhans no-hit CF platoon of 2007. Blah.
@kfisher32: I think Bernadina is the way to go at this point. Possibly more upside than the Willie or Willy.
@Neuman85: No one seems to like Taveras, but he seems like a fit for the 2-hole.
@Khillock: Would Maxwell fit in RF? If so, I’d rather see him than the TaHarris platoon.
@soullmeetsbody: They will be a hitting nightmare. Look at their OPS stats.
