Adam Rubin of ESPN NY asked Terry Collins if there was a number one factor that existed in determining who wins the second base job between Brad Emaus, Daniel Murphy, Luis Castillo and Justin Turner, Terry Collins again stated offense is priority. That would boost the chances of Brad Emaus and Daniel Murphy and diminish the chances of Luis Castillo (wishful thinking).
“Second base, to me, has become an enormous offensive position,” Collins said. “Why? I’m not really sure, except some of the guys that have been playing there recently [Chase Utley, Dan Uggla] have put up huge numbers at second."
"But it’s become an offensive position, so to me that’s a big piece to the puzzle, especially when you’ve got that guy [Ike Davis] playing first base that can eat up so much ground over there. It helps out."
Again, I am going to stick to my belief that Murphy and Emaus will platoon at 2B - DD
