Puke! Better off with out, exception being Hamilton but what was acquired for him balances that out.

a wonderful example of how meaningless Spring Training stats really are

Nats' Taveras in mix to platoon with Harris (http://therocket.mlblogs.com/archives/2010/03/nats_taveras_in_mix_to_platoon.html)


Add Nationals outfielder Willy Taveras to the mix of right-handed hitters who could platoon with Willie Harris in right field.

Taveras, who signed a Minor League deal with Washington last month, is having a solid spring, going 7-for-20 [.350] with a homer and four RBIs. The numbers indicate he is in the lead to platoon with Harris because Justin Maxwell and Mike Morse have slumped badly.

After a great start, Morse is now hitting .243 with two home runs and seven RBIs, while Maxwell is 4-for-39 [.103], but leads the team in runs scored [nine] and walks [eight].

Go Willy T.

General Managers are stupid ... for the most part.

He only had 13 ABs, while I set a minimum of 20 ABs for consideration. The more impressive slash line belongs to Denorfia -- .390/.405./.512 and that's in 46 ABs. He's having a great spring, and, hopefully, can resuscitate his career with the Padres and live up to the promise many of us once thought he had.

Do I wish he had stayed with the Reds? No. But I still am in his corner and will root him on -- same as Rey Olmedo, who I saw go 3 for 3 in a game this spring against the Mariners. Now the Rangers have gone and traded him to the Brewers, so I guess we'll be seeing more of Rey this summer.

Justin Turner 364/440/545 in 22abs

Adam Rosales 333/442/556 in 36 abs

I wonder if he's playing well enough to get the Padres to change his number from 77?
