BTW - I can't wait for the first time Lofton comes charging in and makes and line out to center into a triple. I just don't get it. Bernie's defense was a concern so they go out and get Kenny Lofton?
You are on the money with that comment. I was complaining about this guy's D for years here in Cleveland. He would make the over the fence catch but blow the easy plays, and he continually threw to the wrong base or just plain missed the cutoff. He thinks he is Clemente out there trying to throw the guy out at home all the time.
But. we don't count defense do we, and I can see him being a very nice little player hitting leadoff for NY. 100 runs, .285 BA, 25-30 SB, and he will come cheap or late, whichever fits.
