Babcock is going for the playoffs, though, and is relying on a veterans. With the injuries and Cleary, Bert, and the Mule showing their age, it is looking more and more unlikely.

However, having said that, Tatar needs 10-15 games on the top unit, and shouldn't be demoralized by being demoted on his first few bad games. Cannot see Babcock taking this risk. Unfortunately.
Franzen hasn't been showing his age, he has been great for the most part when healthy all year. People might still hate the guy, but he has played very well. This whole losing streak they are on is in no small part because he is out of the lineup right now.
