Kevin Mench, who struggled mightily after a midseason trade from Texas to Milwaukee, said Thursday he will "pitch a fit" if manager Ned Yost institutes a left-right, Jenkins-Mench platoon in left field. Yost has not made public his plans, but has pointed to Jenkins' struggles last season against left-handers and Mench's career success against them as reasons a timesharing agreement could make sense.
Seriously though, what is the solution if Jenkins and Mench continue to "pitch fits"? The "fine by me" part implies that they'll be disposed of, but Ned may just be talking tough. It'll be interesting to see who blinks first here.
