Re: Reds sign Willy Taveras to 2 year deal....
While I'm 99.9% sure that Taveras is going to be worthless offensively, I'm at least hoping his defense will rebound. In 2005 and 2006 with the Astros, he posted a UZR/150 of +8.9 and +15.1. In 2007 and 2008 with the Rockies he was well below average at -17.4 and -9.7. The spacious CF in Coors could have something to do with that drop off. At the very least, let's hope his defense returns to where it was in 2005-2006.
I miss Adam Dunn.
