I think he'll be unfairly short-leashed by that trade with Saint Louis for Marrero/Drew. If he has a two-week slump, I could see him riding the pine until Marrero does the same.

maybe if he got hurt. I'm hoping for a Scenerio where they put chipper back on 3rd and move marrero to the OF...

that would be cool.

Might happen. Who do they have now? DeRosa.

A solid pick, but if Tracy makes a splash in '04 look for it to be in the outfield. The D-backs have made it known they are satisfied with Hillenbrand at third and plan on extending his contract. Therefore, Tracy had been getting time in the outfield this past offseason before he suffered an injury.

didn't he ask for the move to the OF? he would be a much better option than Bautista ... well worth keeping an eye on in the spring.

Whether or not he switched voluntarily I don't know. But I'm sure they're (as I am) hoping he gives Batista a run for his money in right during spring.

one minor leaguer i have not seen mentioned yet is grady sizemore....lf for the indians... he came in the bartolo colon trade with expos... he will probably be in majors this summer if Cleveland is dead and out by then(which is more than likely).....he might not become a superstar in the majors but he should produce a solid 300 ba, 25 hrs, 100 rbis, 20 sbs.....
