These two guys...IMHO...are almost automatic outs. Gaby and Ike are practically doing nothing offensively. The Pirates are getting almost zero productivity from the 1B position.

IMHO...the lack of offense from these two guys is holding this Pirate team back...amongst other areas (like the Bullpen).

With Cutch out, Gaby and Ike are two guys that must step it up. They haven't done that all year and are still NOT getting the job done.

Move Pedro to 1B...can it get any worse than the "great" Gaby and Ike platoon? :roll:

Possibly, but I doubt it!

It would be huge if Ike hit that fabled second half groove.

To all the members of this Board who took time to read this post AND respond...my only comment is..."how unusual, eh?".

Of course my comment refers to Gaby and Ike both hitting doubles and driving in runs in a Pirates victory last night against the Marlins.

I would bet that will be the last time we see that happen again for the remainder of this season...although it does represent a small sampling of how good the Pirate offense could be IF those guys could produce consistently!

My hope for the Bucs is that they will start producing but their track record so far this season says that they won't...

Let's not totally write off Ike Davis, fellas. He's always been a strong second half player.

Here are his numbers this season post-All-Star break:

* .286/.333/.543 with 2 home runs & 7 RBI in 35 ABs

The obvious solution is to gut out April and May, let Pedro play in June and early July against RHP, let Davis take the post ASB starts against RHP, and keep Gaby around for LHP.

Kidding aside, if Ike Davis has a 2nd half in line with his career numbers he could certainly carry the offense until Cutch comes back and give him some lineup protection when he does come back.

Alvarez, Stewart, Martinez, Nix, Sanchez, Davis, Pimentel, Frieri, and Gomez should all be DFA'd immediately. Or at least that's the consensus.

Did I forget anybody?
