This front office has no clue at all to as what they are doing.
Well according to a lot of reports that I've read, Milledge's attitude problem is out of control, he can't hit and he can't field right now. That he still has an option to be sent to AAA is a godsend for them. Whether he shows up at AAA or not is another issue.
Right now? He was barely above replacement level last year. He was below average at the plate and terrible in the field (although perhaps it's not his fault he was miscast in CF). He's got talent for sure, but it hasn't yet translated to the major league level.
Well in my book, playing barely above replacement level for 23 yo with a lot of raw talent is pretty good. He made some improvements last year that led to a lot of people believing in him as a major potential breakout player.
