Or, why do we keep seeing Walker/Neifi start?
Walker, I understand. He is coming back after injury and wants to keep playing and I really feel that he is on the Cubs roster next year. But Dusty should play Murton and Cedeno all the time. That much seems logical and necessary to many if not most Cubs fans.
I have an additional question. Should Corey play regularly too? Now that he has indicated an aversion to playing winterball, should Hendry ask Dusty to play Corey regularly so he can make a decision on his future without waiting for next spring training? I do not think that Hendry is going to give up on Corey without another serious prolonged look-see. If that is the case, why not now?
Similarly, if Nomar is going to see if he can play outfield next year, why not now? Sit Burnitz and play Lee, Hairston, Cedeno, Walker/Neifi(3B) and an outfield of Nomar, Murton and Corey. What have we got to lose?
