Considering how many low production strikeout kings we have who swing homer or nothing all the time, that's pretty amusing.

Keppinger is a contact hitter, and we need more of them, not less.

Being selfish would be poor hitting due to hacking all over the zone and power swinging for stats which is what we're seeing from Dunn, Viciedo and Flowers, etc. and not what we're seeing with Keppinger's "put the ball in play" approach.

Keppinger should be moved for his contract, not for his hitting, which would fit in fine if we had any kind of productive hitters in the order other than Rios.
