The only guy he brought in that matches that description is Ramos. Cano is old, but heís still not a bad 2B. Davis is becoming a very good 3B. Weíll see how Brodie addresses the defense after this season with Ramos likely gone, Gimenez looking better overall than Rosario, and CF.
Ramos is awful, Davis was not good last year in the field though I'm happy he's turning it around, and Cano has zero range. So yes, he absolutely values bats over defense much like Sandy did. Obviously the team he inherited wasn't good defensively, but he hasn't made them better.
