Re: Greene? Really?
Alright, well since I am the only credible source on Greene seeing as how I'm the only one who watches Greene on a daily basis (I live in San Diego), it's not his glove, but his bat is the reason I wouldn't want Greene. When healthy, he could conceivably hit 30 HRs at GABP, but EVERYONE is wrong about his glove. As much as I don't really care for Greene, he has an OUTSTANDING glove. Watch film of him and you will be impressed. He has excellent range and makes several highlight reel plays that go unnoticed simply because he's not flashy like Phillips, and because he plays for the Padres.
So dismiss the notion that he has a bad glove, because that is completely false. He does not get on base consistently enough for an everyday hitter. If we are really looking to shore up our middle defense, then Greene is a pretty good option, but only if we're willing to sacrifice a .230 hitter for a above average glove at short.
