Free Rick Short!

Why isn't this guy playing more? He's got an OBP of .500, SLG of 1.000, and an OPS of 1.500. Yes, he's only had 12 plate appearances, but he was flirting with .400 in the minors, for chrissake! Give the guy a shot! Even if you assume that Cristian Guzman has morphed into Miguel Tejada, Deivi Cruz hasn't looked Ruthian in his last 11 at bats: .364 OBP, .364 SLG, and .728 OPS.

Here's a thought: let's put our hottest players on the field on the theory that better stats suggest better performance.
