Nick Punto Watch - With Added Coverage of The Harris Embarrassment

With the lineup without Cuddy, Morneau, Hudson, and Hardy, two things became evident: 1) Nicky was going to play a lot more and 2) Our lineup stinks without those four guys. In case you're wondering, #1 and #2 above are likely related.

Nicky is batting a solid .225, the real story this update is the Harris situation. Trust me, nobody wanted to see Harris succeed more than I, but I've reached a point where I need to get my big butt off his bandwagon. The dude is batting .162! .162! There are pitchers in the National League that eek out enough bunt singles to do better than that. Michael Jordan did better than that (OK, he was just in AA ball, but damn, .162? Come on.).

Hence, if Harris does not catch Punto this week, I'm completely reworking this column. You've been warned, Brendan...
