I will say that Jocketty has a history (from STL) of installing gritty, unspectacular players at 2B. Greene fits that profile, so I would not be all that surprised if he gets a shot at that job in 2013 or 14, if Phillips is not extended.
Based on very little information and not much more than a hunch, I think I agree with you. There have been rumblings about Henry Rodriguez' heart and head and the reports about his defense have been varied from one end of the spectrum to the other. I just get this Felipe Lopez vibe about him. At this point I'm wondering if Greene isn't a better alternative.
Its all pretty thin, but Greene has my vote for this year's sleeper prospect and I'm probably going to fit him somewhere in the 15 to 20 range on my list (of course that was a jinx, or at least a big misread, last year when I put Kris Negron at 14).
