I don't want to be a pessimist, but here's Bowker's line over the last month:
His OBP is currently .298, with a .403 SLG% and .707 OPS.
I want the kids to play as bad as anyone else, so can someone please give me a legitimate reason that he should continue to log significant innings at 1st base or RF this season? I know we don't have any other great prospects behind him, but it seems like they could throw Ishikawa a bone for the season he's having, or bring up Sandoval sooner than later (maybe not a great idea). I've had this conversation with people, and they always say "he'll figure it out". I would whole-heartedly agree if he were a blue chip prospect like Longoria or Alex Gordon. Hell, if he was Kevin Kouzmanoff! But I'm not sure his minor league track record suggests he'll turn it around. Thoughts?
