I don't believe I have once read that Pearce is a "good field, not hit guy". It seems like he has always hit well in the minors and just never got a good chance to stick in the majors as a starter.

Exactly. And he is not a stone off the bench.
He looked fairly good tonight.

I really don't like the way he has been handled of late. Gets a courtesy AB in the ninth and produces at GIDP to end the game. I mean that really sucks. Is he hurt?? Why isn't he getting more ABs??????? :x

Honestly cant believe any one's concerned about Nick Johnson's playing time. I'm actually surprised he's still a major leaguer
