botts will get some ab's, but at whose expense? lofton and cat need to get their ab's, and cruz had a fine winter ball season.
Agreed Mathis has more potential, but he wants to know who will have a bigger impact THIS season. Without a doubt I think Botts will.
Also I don't think that OFers will effect how much playing time Botts will get. I think he will get a decent amount of ABs at DH not OF.
