I think, and have thought for a while, that Freddy is likely done. I don't think his shoulder can take the rigors of MLB anymore. I hope he proves me wrong, as that would benefit the team greatly. However, I do believe in Burriss. I don't agree that he's been given many undue chances, either. His first year in the majors he hit .283, warrenting more playing time, but instead saw less his second year, struggling in the face of inconsistent playing time. The next season he spent the majority of in the minors. Then last season they were forced to turn to him in the absence of Sanchez, so Cap78, I really don't agree with you. He's a former first round pick so it's clear that management believes he has some measure of talent, so you can't blame them for giving him a chance in spring training, where he earned his chance to play now. He's done ok so far, better than Ryan Theriot. I like his speed and his glove, as well as his energy level.
However, while I really like Panik, I don't agree that he is the clear cut 2B of the future, or that A-ball is as far as they need to look. Charlie Culberson has been playing quite well so far in Fresno (Triple-A ball, of course), and I really like Double-A 2B Ryan Cavan. Conor Gillaspie has played mostly 3B (and a little 1B this year) in the minors but I believe he could probably make the conversion to 2B as well, and he's hitting the ball real well too.
