    Nava's a worthy platoon guy. But we're a long way from even talking about "year", as in full season.

     



    Agreed the year is only 1/3 over.  OTOH, how about 600 AB's of .368 OBP / .782 OPS?  Those are his career stats which do include a significant number of games with a bum wrist.  He is looking like a lot more than a platoon guy ... he looks like a bona fide MLB starter.  Let's see how the rest of the year pans out, though, before you eat some crow.  Speaking of Big Papi's alleged career ending injury ... Tongue Out

     

     

     

    Big Papi ... is he still around?

     

        Surely he cannot be.   Surely all the wise and all knowing experts we have here that called him washed up and much worse could not be wrong.   Not possible.

     

         There is a fella at DH named David that is doing a fairly commendable job   ... sorta looks like, hits like ...

     

          I've heard if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck .... it may just be a

    Roy, playing at that level, the psychological aspect is just as important as the physical.  I'm certain you're aware of that.

    This being said, just the fact that Nava felt secure in his starting position, had to have a positive impact for him.  The relief, for probably the first time in his playing career, to not have to prove himself had to have helped.

    I'm sure you're glad that the FO didn't give up on Pedroia when he was hovering around the Mendoza line for quite a while at the beginning of his career.  I wonder what it would have done to his career if they sent him back to the minors then.



    This is a good point. Everyone needs an opportunity to prove themselves. Nava is the kind of steady, smart, hard working player who is not spectacular but needs the chance to show what he can do. Sometimes a player needs the confidence of mangement to achieve their full potential. Nava is certainly a worthy candidate for that confidence.

    A few points:

    1.) Great OP and not crazy to at least consider Nava as an All-Star. His numbers hold up. Even if you don't think so, he looks like an everyday player. Tough not to like and respect him.

    2.) That being said let's see how he plays over 162. Bum wrist or not, he had a horrible second half last year.
