Is he crash dieting or is that just speculation? Losing weight won't make him a better outfielder, but it will at least aid him in gaining back some mobility and endurance so he's not having sore legs after one game in the outfield which seemed to be the case last year. He was never particularly great before last year, but I can see him as a 5th outfielder. Last year, he was in the worst shape of his career and in poor shape for being a professional athlete. In my opinion, losing weight for him is a MUST.moochman wrote:My concerns with Dmitri aren't that he is losing weight. That couldn't harm his production. You are kidding about him in the OF, right? Losing weight won't make him a competetent OFer. He'll still get bad jumps and take poor routes to the ball. No, what worries me is that he is crash dieting, if you would, because he didn't lose the weight as he was told to during the off season. And I've seen too many time where that type of weight lose cost a player his strength or energy. Add to that the trajectory of his career and it looks as if his better days are behind him. Time to dial down expectations for out $8 millon dollar DH.

Crazy, stupid stuff. Just for kicks, though, I'd like to see speed covering the outfield and I like Nook a lot. I know Young is a good hitter, but what team could rival this defense?
I would like to see Logan abandon batting left-handed. You watch him hit and you can tell by far right-handed is his natural side. I think he's one of those guys who became a switch-hitter just because he's fast and batting from the left side gives him that extra half step or whatever. He has no power as it is from the right side, and even less power from the left. The defense plays in on him, which in turn even makes bunting harder and they know he's not going to hit the ball far if he does swing away.moochman wrote:cmchampa2 wrote:Logan is a situational player at this point.
