Betemit had a .370 wOBA against righties last season. That's better than Adam Jones, your guy Adam LaRoche, Ben Zobrist, David Freese, Matt Holiday, and many more. Why would we release this guy?
I agree that the BAT is worth keeping as a DH against RHs; however, I have some concerns about putting that GLOVE on the field.
