I do respect the hell out the guy for what he's done and how hard he had to work to finally become a MLB player. That being said, I would prefer him to be someone else's feel good story now and in his spot another OF with some pop. Nothing crazy, preferably a LH handed hitter who could step in at the #6 to split up all the righties and actually be a viable pinch hit candidate. I don't think DeWayne is that guy, and him being on the roster blocked any of that type of transaction from happening.
Who would you prefer? Enlighten us. I think Wise has been great when used in small doses. The problem is when we lose an OF to injury and he fills in. But I'm just tired of seeing everyone rag on him for something he has no control over (playing time).
