He is so bad in the OF that the team that had Cedeno roam CF cut Sanchez loose. I do not understand TB as they will not play the kid Gathright supposedly for being a hack with no displine at the plate and a lousy glove...so they go out and sign someone with the same problems who has no upside. Obviously something personal is going on there, but I suspect Pineilla will grow frustrated with Sanchez quickly and he will be ot of a job.
Theres only one thing on here I disagree about - Sanchez is far from being a SB specialist. His baserunning instincts are a joke. I also have to assume at this point Gathright will be called up after the requisit 1 month so they can pay him his contractual minimum. I just read an article recently detailing the theory more, but in a nut shell, if Gathright starts the yr on the club he will be eligible for arbitration - as long as he plays a month in the minors he's not eligible. Talk about making your employees happy, eh. Devil Ray fans - tell me Im wrong. Sanchez will play a month - thats it.
