If he plays 2-3 times a week vs RHP maybe he’s productive. He’s likely taking Descalso/Bote/Almora ABs away vs RHP, the bar ain’t that high.

Almora and Bote are solid defenders though, which Gonzalez definitely isn't.

Batting 5th, playing RF tonight (over Almora, with Heyward in center). I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Edit: I also have zero problems with David Bote's .289/.364/.500 against RHP in 129 PAs this year.

I didn’t realize Bote was hitting so well vs RHP, damn. CarGo’s presence at least knocks Descalso down in the pecking order to more the LaStella role.

He sure as hell knew how to pronounce Doug Dascenzo. He gushed over that guy every time he made even a routine play.

No doubt if Harry was still alive he'd be talking about the new OF addition CarGo Gonzalez.

They found him passed out drunk in the cargo hold of a FedEx plane? Is that it?

Poorly worded maybe but it's not that bad of a question. Who started calling him that, when he started embracing it, etc. are par for the course as far as lame non-baseball questions. I think we can give this person the benefit of the doubt and assume that they weren't interested in the etymology.

I will give the benefit of the doubt that it was a kid under 12, anything else is unacceptable.
But that just raises the question of parents allowing access to instagram to kids under 12.
