I'm really confused on how Colorado is using him..apparently the players like Barmes over him?

Ugh. All I know is every time he plays, he is productive, offensively at least. Is he just god awful in the field?

I have a feeling that he will be getting consistent playing time pretty soon. And it will be nice! ;-D

He's fine defensively at 3B but the problem is that Atkins is there. At 2B he has neither the experience or the defensive potential to really be a long-term option there (but I think he's going to force the issue and play there some to get his bat into the lineup). And the OF is too crowded since they've promoted Fowler whom needs to play and Spilborghs is fairly good along with Baker and Smith getting time there.

The big problem is that they are also carrying Baker on the team and his positional versatility cuts into Stewart's PT. I seem to remember at least two games that Baker started and Stewart was on the bench. I would be very surprised that in May Stewart isn't out there at least 4 games a week. Meanwhile he'll just be glued to my bench and I'll watch all of those great stats go to waste.

Homered off a lefty today.

Should be playing against RHP all the time, regardless of whether its 2b, 3b, or OF.

I drafted this guy as my MI, and would love to have him in there, but this platooning sux big time!
I know he will be full-time soon, but not soon enough.
