How good does The Fort have to hit to become the full time starter?




I'm not bashing Barajas, but this is a legitimate inquiry. I know Mac has his slumps just like Barajas does, but McKenry has just as much HRs(tied at 7) and RBIs(Fort has 19, Rod has 18) in exactly 80 less at bats than Barajas. I know Clint has this thing where Rod HAS to catch Jmac and AJ every start, hence why he stuck KC in between them in the rotation, but at what point does Mac's performance at the plate become too much to look past?

AVG/OBP/OPS for each:

The Fort: .255/.336/.854

Barajas: .216/.286/.655

And yes, McKenry's OPS is easily second best on the team. So does Fort deserve a shot to start everyday? At least every time for KC/Bedard/Karstens? What if Barajas numbers continue to slip, or if Fort's numbers (somehow) continue to get better?
