It's pretty simple, Brad Mills. You have a last-place baseball team. It's a team that's in line for the top overall pick in the 2012 draft. It's not a team competing for the division title. It's not a team that's trying to get to .500. This is a bad team, and once you recognize that, you should try your damnedest to fix that. The easiest way? Play young players! They'll never develop if they don't play, so let them play!

Brett Wallace had an awesome stretch back in April. Has he just forgotten how to play? Oh, right, he's still hitting decently, even if his average has dropped in the past month. Is there a thought that he's just tired? That he just needs time off?

I doubt it. We're just seeing a bad side of Brad Mills. Like Jimy Williams, it appears that Mills can't or won't develop young players. That's the only real explanation for why Wallace would lose playing time at this point.
