Re: Reds sign Willy Taveras to 2 year deal....
If you are pro Taveras you probably feel he can hit well enough to not be of negative overall value to the team (along with his speed & defense). He has no pop (and by that I mean he even struggles hitting the ball out of the IF) and he doesn't BB much. So his entire offensive value has to come from him hitting for a high average, which he's never consistently done. He's a career .283 hitter people which isn't good at all if you don't walk and hit leadoff. And he's moving to a park that supresses BA in favor of slugging. So if you are pro Taveras tell me how this doesn't make sense to you?
If you are anti Taveras you already know this.
