re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
I can see him batting second but Gordon has had a good year and as the organization knows, Beckham is mentally fragile, delicate and needs to be handled with care. Prior to this year, he was putrid at the plate. Things turned around when Robin told him that his livelihood doesn't depend on him thinking he NEEDS to get a hit every at bat. Stopped pressing, having fun, etc,.
It'll be interesting to see where Robin puts him.
