Look, Joe, I still wanted to give you a little credit for sticking by your "Chris Stewart isn't CC's personal catcher" bit that you've been using on the media for the past couple weeks. I really did. I think it shows heart on your part to go up there every 5th night and stick to that same sad routine.
But if you're going to follow that up with something so blatantly dishonest about Eduardo Nunez being demoted to make room for Eric Chavez's return instead of Jayson Nix, that's where I draw the line. You sent Nunez down because you want him to get more reps at SS? Really??
Come on, Joe! Just admit it. We all know the truth. Chris Stewart is CC's catcher (and also the man), and Eduardo Nunez flat out sucks at fielding and throwing the baseball. Neither of those things are big secrets. So cut the crap with the "more reps" routine, because the only thing those reps are going to do for Nunez is give him a greater opportunity to boot the ball all over the field and possibly set the Triple-A record for most errors by a shortstop in a season.
Just embrace the truth, Joe. Take it all in. It'll make you feel better. Don't worry about Nunez's feelings. It's not like he's going to cry. There's no crying in baseball, remember?
