I have been gone for a while im back, i personally like the garza trade and i think barlett is a how the rays should be, very good speed with good fielding.... What are the updates with brignac and longoria... i also like the deal with dukes for the pitching but can we work on some minor league hitters now?
and are we ever going to get a catcher who bats over 250?
Bartlett and good fielding in the same sentence??
He has good range and because of that he made some errors because of trying to make great plays. Also, he was injured last season. I think he has more range than anyone we have available to us and will be better this year if he stays healthy
Good range not great.
Average defender not great.
Injured or not, he has always been an average defensively at the SS position.
Is he better then anybody we have in our system, yes.
Will he make a Tulo like difference in our pitching staff, not a chance.
Can he help Longoria and Iwamura on the infield, definitely.
If people are expecting him to come in and be the saviour, please think again. His best bet to stick as a Ray is to help Evan grow more then anything else.
