If TLR is willing to trust Craig at 2B, you can trust him with all your heart.

I live by one code: don't trust any man with two first names, especially if one of them is Todd. Allen Craig has made me rethink my entire life (except the Todd part, don't trust a Todd). Craig went 2 for 3 with two walks, a RBI and two runs scored against Jesus Sanchez and the Giants. He's hitting .347, dude is a beast. He's currently rocking a .395 BABIP, which is sure to fall, but he was posting .330-.350 type numbers in the minors. He has the ability to post an above average BABIP. Add in the solid contact rate (19.4% K%), plate discipline (11.5% BB%), 25-HR power, the steals he's chipping in (four so far) and you have a player who is worthy of your trust.
