We obviously know who his daddy is, but does that make it more difficult to send him down to Triple-A? His daddy hasn't exactly sent SDSU to new plateaus even with all his recruits and an unreal prospect like Steven Strasburg but the field is named after him.
Junior is hitting under the mendoza line .200 with no power and was so completely ineffective in the leadoff spot that other people had to step in. I thought it was going to at least be a platoon with Hairston but Gwynn is hitting .171 versus right handed pitching. Is his defense, really that good? Is he the second coming of Ruben Rivera? I shudder at the thought. I thought Aaron Cunningham looked terrific and was near leading the team in steals during the summer. Cunningham has always raked and has power.
Doesn't he warrant a shot? Luis Durango has that silly speed and Chris Denorfia is hitting .300 and playing good defense at Portland. Gwynn might be out of options but I don't think he would be that big of commodity to be claimed off of waivers, he seems to have shuffled back and forth for the Brewers all the time.
