It should be pretty well known by now that I'm not often a big fan of Ron Gardenhire's decision when it comes to a lot of things. COnsidering Carlos Gomez has been one of the worst hitters in the American League so far this year, a lot of people have been wondering why he's still leading off.
Gardenhire recently said he thinks Gomez needs to have better at bats, but he's not going to move him down in the order. That prompted a funny line from this article.
Gomez hasn't visibly shown much frustration during his recent slump, but the prolonged struggles have started to affect the center fielder's demeanor off the field slightly. And that's part of the reason why Gardenhire said there have been no plans to alter Gomez's role in the order, despite his recent troubles in the leadoff spot. The skipper has always been cautious to change things drastically for young players who are in the midst of a slump.
That's all I really have to say about that level of fallacy.
