I still think it's a really odd move to take a flier on a guy and hope that he figures it out in the middle of a playoff chase. You can justify it by saying that we have nothing better, but only as long as that holds true. If Snider doesn't impress and Tabata stays strong in AAA, I hope they don't hesitate to sit Snider down.
What? He's 3-9 so far for us. How in god's name can you make such a blanket statement about him based on two games where he's gone 3-9?
He's looked fine. Certainly better than Presley has recently.
