How this season is playing out to this point is why I wanted the Os to consider a position change for Sisco. He's not getting the lion's share of starts behind the plate and twice now he's been pulled in the middle of games to enter a defensive replacement. He had the fewest ABs on the team entering the game but he walks and while extremely small SSS is 3 for 8.
As I was typing this Hyde said he wanted to keep Siscos bat in the game but wanted to pinch run for more speed.
The problem is the O's already have too many potential future everyday players with no position. Just where would you put Sisco if not at catcher?
1B - Already have Mancini and Mountcastle (even if Mountcastle can move to LF).
2B - Already have Alberto there. Is Sisco likely to be a better overall hitter and defender there?
LF - Already have a dang near an entire OF of guys who are questionably defensively.
So I agree that Sisco needs to be getting much more time but I think it has to be at C. But clearly Hyde does not value him there. But since they haven't tried to put him anywhere else either tells me they are just not that sold on his bat. If they thought his bat was going to be that good they would find a way to get him in the lineup.
