Please John... just stop

I really liked John Levesque as a TV Critic, in fact I really miss his TV stuff. Sports, though, really not John's forte. Take this morning's column on how Bob Melvin should look to Willie Bloomquist to save the day.

No, this isn't a joke. I'm not kidding, that's the real story. Look, I think its been pretty well proven around the blogosphere that one of BoMel's problems has been his obsession with Wee Willie. Every team does need a gym-rat, good teammate guy like Bloomquist. If they can't hit worth a damn, like Willie, they're needed down on the end of the bench, playing about once a week, not starting at 3B or anywhere else on the field. Levesque is right about one thing, this team does need to look to its bench. Just get better bench players first please.

As to Melvins option being picked up, well, like David over at USS Mariner said: worse things could have happened to this team. Yes, Melvin seems overmatched at times, but he hasn't lost the team. And really, is it his fault this team has no bench and no power? That the starting pitching has been erratic at best? No, thats Bavasi's fault.

And hopefully, the organization will figure that out before it's late.
