Am I saying Ben Francisco will definitely step in and match Werth’s superstar contributions just because they had very similar stats at the same point in their careers?  Of course not.  Taking that jump from pretty good role player to superstar player isn’t something that happens just because they get the opportunity to start.

 

I’m just saying that too much talk has revolved around the idea that our only hope in right field is Domonic Brown or a trade.  That’s clearly not the only possible situation to having a valuable, hitting right fielder.  I’m more of the belief that Brown provides insurance in case Raul Ibanez’s game goes to hell.

 

Give Francisco a chance.
