    I understand the argument you're making. I just don't think that that arrangement (Baez in the OF and Bryant at 3B) prevents more runs than keeping the SS's in the IF and putting Bryant in the OF.

    Coghlan has been quite good but given recent track records I have more faith in Valbuena to maintain that value.

    Nevertheless, good point.

    It's amazing how much the defensive metrics love him. 4ish win pace despite a .228/.286/.359 slashline.

    They almost have to unless they plan on fielding a $50M team.

    And if they were doing that, I don't think they would've called these guys up til next year.

    He's talking about bench guys, though, not guys like sandoval or martin

    i see him coming up in mid 2015, but that aside, we have valbuena to take that spot in the meanwhile. there's really no good reason to sign an everyday positional guy right now.
