    Are you saying he can't hold his own at SS at the MLB level, or is he a complete embarrassment at a low pro level? If a player has the talent and arm to play SS at the college level, or above average SS at the HS level, he should be able to learn to play the OF at a pro level without being a liability. There are always exceptions though. Some guys just can't get the knack of reading the ball off the bat. If he was good enough to be considered as a middle infielder in the pros for all these years, I'm sure he should have the defensive ability to play a far less demanding OF position well.

    MLB level, and he's not very good in the minors either. He is great at anything he can get to, but he's so slow so he doesn't get to many balls. He's still only 21 so he can get even bigger.

    I call that the Babe Ruth effect. The indelible image of Babe Ruth is that of a big fan man swatting huge home runs and waddling around the bases even though for most of his career he was lean and fast.

    Like Ruth, Staub got heavy at the end of his career but wasn't fat at all in his prime. But unlike Ruth, Staub was never fast.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Flores is a LFer or first baseman waiting to happen...they didn't move him with Wright up in the air...now they can shift him to LF in ST....if he mashes he has a future in our outfield

    You're probably right, but when Flores is 26 years old, I'm sure he will be slower.
