From C. Trent's website. Interesting stuff, click on the link below to check it out.


CNati: In spring training, Barry Larkin told me Miguel Rojas' glove was "special" -- but the bat, the bat's still the question. How has his glove been (because, well, the bat's appeared to be as advertised)?

Lang: I joke around in the press box and call him "Showboat" because he makes so many outstanding defensive plays and makes them look easy. He doesn't actually showboat though. The hands are definitely as advertised. He's got tremendous range and great instincts on when to attack in the infield. But Barry's right. At some point, Miguel's going to have to learn to hit, because not many major league teams -- especially NL teams -- have a use for defensive specialists who hover around the Mendoza line.

This is a great read and I think it's indicative of a different style of journalism that Trent can bring as a "free agent," if you will. I don't recall anything this extensive from any of the beat writers.

I really like the depth the local writer goes into with so many players, giving some insight we don't ordinarily get (although I'm sure some here do get that).
