Also Bradley is a lock for a starter, Taveras is a body to throw in the mix for depth. I don't think anyone that supports the Taveras acquision is saying he should be handed the job. Obviously, Bradley's contract would dictate that he's handed the job for the length of the contract.
Keep saying that. Even though Walt has clearly stated they are looking at him as a leadoff hitter and starting CF.
And if that is the case, welcome to last year.
