Anybody check out Rottino's splits? Especially his numbers against lefties? He's hitting .357 with a .900 OPS against southpaws in 115ABs. He's been hitting well overall of late, but I was really surprised to see the big difference between lefties and righties.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Not a bad bench bat to have in September versus lefties, eh?! I'm all for him coming up in September unless the powers that be don't want to give him a 40-man spot until after the season.

It helps with the hot streak that Vinny is on. In his last 40 games, he's hitting like .400.

Vinny was 4 for 5 last night to raise his average to .314. He has hit .381 since the all-star break.

Will he get a chance in Milwaukee before the end of the year?

probably not...vinny's headed to fall bal, which generally means he misses the september callup...

vinny should have a shot at a bench spot in the spring...and i think his odds would be pretty good..

both the Journal Sentinal and milwaukeebrewers.com have been quoting the front office as saying it's likely that Rottino gets called up.

For a team that can't score runs, I don't see why you don't at least give him a chance. I know there are reasons to keep him down, but when a guy is that hot, give him a shot.
