What's Wrong With This Picture?

Vs. Righties
                  AB   AB  OBP  SLG  OPS
Mench, Career 1331 .261 .319 .439 .758
Jenkins, 2006 303 .291 .354 .450 .805
Meanwhile, Jenkins has been terrible against lefties all year while Mench has torn them up.

How do you utilize the talents of these two players? Easy. You sit Jenkins against a righty and start Mench in his place!

Yost and Melvin have convinced themselves that Mench is the real deal but I simply don't see it. I see a guy who's put up mediocre numbers in a hitter's park. That's cleanup material, apparently.

Some discussion of this at here.
