If Paul Janish ever OPSes north of .600 I'll be surprised. He's THAT bad.
Okay, and 2 years ago Janish posted a .723 ops. And no, I'm not saying he'd do that again. But I am saying he's a much better defender than Valdez.
Personally, I would've preferred to keep the starter/long reliever depth of Horst in Louisville.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
