Way back in WSBGMs inaugural season of 2006, the Phillies employed Alex S. Gonzalez. He went on to play in 20 games that season and hit .111 with a .269 OPS. Naturally, we called for his release. Instead he gifted the organization with his retirement. It might be time for Placido Polanco to do the same.
AVG - .179
OBP - .220
SLG - .205
OPS - .425
September - .280/.349/.344/.693
August - .280/.333/.280/.613
July - .100/.217/.100/.317
June - .213/.279/.266/.545
May - .248/.289/.294/.583
Excluding his set the world on fire April of 2011, Polanco has hit .237 (96-405) with a .295 OBP, .279 SLG, and .574 OPS. During that time he's scored 31 runs, has 32 RBI, 8 DBL, and 3 HR.
At the very least Manuel should drop Polly to 7th or 8th in the lineup. Freddy Galvis is hitting better than him for crying out loud.
Oh, and before you go clamoring on and on about his Gold Glove defense...shove it.
