And I agree. We are missing Sutton.
I would rather have the inexperienced J. Schultz and Petry play their natural side, and the Vet Gilbert play the left side. Not perfect but just working with what Tambelini could have had. The only advantage that N. Schultz has in this situation is that he is a LHD. Gilberts offence cancels out N. Schultz's (usually) better defensive play. But at the time of the trade I liked Gilbert's game, he was actually starting to hit.
Another thing I've noticed is what happened to Petry's physical game? He's producing offense but seams to have dropped the hitting side of his game. Not that he hit a lot, but every few games he atleast had a big hit. Krueger trying to micro manage?
