Because we ran out French and Getz far too long and it took Hosmer 3 months to hit worth a shit. Infante and Aoki are major upgrades to what we ran out there last year and I'm expecting Hosmer to not take 3 months to start hitting this year. Also if Moose struggles we have a possible backup plan in place to replace his hole in the lineup.
