The argument last night against trading Gregorius was that despite his weak bat, his glove made him valuable. Well, Cozart put up nearly 3 WAR last year in his first full season in the big leagues. It seems either this is an inconsistent argument or perhaps Cozart deserves a second season before hanging him in effigy for his ".290 OBP"
Fair point...but don't forget to factor their ages into that argument. It's a rather big factor.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
