Great obp... decent power and speed. Great glove. What's not to love? Defense was our biggest weakness last year (that and injuries) and Mathews at CF is an IMMEDIATE UPGRADE over Figgy. He'll get a lot of liners GA and Vlad can't run down anymore.
GMJ 2006 had -6 FRAA (fielding runs above average) which makes significantly below average. What a joker this guy is. I hope he pans out, but I believe this move will get Stoneman fired. Also, Great OBP? his lifetime OBP is .336! thats not even normal or below average, thats horrendous.
