He's struggled for the better part of three seasons, no denying it. But Gibbons has a history of playing guys to their strengths. Lind did very well against righties, especially after Mottola - now with the big club full-time - re-jigged his plate approach in Vegas. If he DH's the 70% of games we play vs RHP, he'll do just fine, and could hit capably out of the 5-hole.
