I think I am the last Julio Lugo fan left on this planet…I still think he’s serviceable. If his knee is near 100% he can steal some bases and while his OBP is not good, he is a decent hitter. Worst case scenario he’s an upgrade from Nick Green who has been the SS during your 11+ game win streak…

That’s debatable, John.
When you have Ramiro Pena, Melky Cabrera and Jose Molina in your lineup, let me know about debatable. You have 8 other guys scorching the ball, you could have Hideki Okajima playing SS right now and it wouldn’t matter. Woooo is you.

Tell that to last night’s baseball game.
At least he hit the go-ahead RBI (wouldn’t have been anywhere near go-ahead if he could field a ball thrown right at him). He still sucks, of course, but I agree with John that he’s the best option right this second. Bastard (Lugo, not John).
Makes sense that the only Lugo fan in the universe is also a YF. ;)
Per that, Jackie, this year I have become a huge Wang fan, I wish he were pitching every day! I had never appreciated him until this year!

Actually, if we had Okajima playing SS we probably would have won the game last night. He would have made that play. For that matter, any kid above coach-pitch would have made that play.
In fact, at the Machine Pitch game I coached last night, several kids DID make that play.
I just realized how mean this post is, and I want to apologize.
Road cones everywhere, I am sorry.
Funny, but I had never appreciated Ortiz until this year! May he never find an OPS above .650 again!
