Is there a certain level of acceptability? Maybe a guy can't throw runners out at a good clip, but can handle/manage a pitching staff. Clearly an all defense approach isn't desirable for this team because they let not one, but two defensive stalwarts with poor offense walk and spent a lot more money on a guy that is less defensively and a gamble offensively.I know it’s changed in recent years, but this is the same organization who started Victor Martinez and Carlos Santana at C because they favored their offense at a premium position over their defense. Eventually yes they both moved, but both of them did catch initially. Just something I thought was interesting relative to the posters saying Diaz would never catch for this organization. I think that may have depended on how good his offense gets.
Now apply that logic to our current CFer. Should he perform well below average offensively speaking what is the move?
We also have a SS that is average offensively and below average defensively, but he's only here for this season at the most. Because he is signed through this season and has no versatility whatsoever we're kicking the can down the road with our SS prospects.
