[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tito has given up : Yes, because if you are going to sit someone, sit someone who isn't producing, not sit AGON, and in CC's case, it's time to let him play v. all pitchers instead of the JD Drew treatment.

I don't disagree with sitting Pedroia, FWIW.
But you're taking the position that a slumping player who kills a pitcher is less likely than a hotter player who doesn't touch that pitcher.
If I were making a bet, and my choices were someone that struck out 5 times in 6 ABs against a pitching, or someone that is 8-16 against the same pitcher, but is in a 4-game slump, I'm taking the latter, and I really don't think it's very close.
And CC plays against everyone, but again, if I have a choice, without knowing the names of taking someone who is 3-9 or someone that is 2-17, I'm taking the 3-9, and this is without even considering the rest angle.
