Re: The Case For: Xavier Paul
At this point, with his age and spotty health, I see zero upside for Rolen when you already have a bench player who plays 1B/3B exclusively. I don't care that Frazier can play (only) LF if they had Rolen over Paul. Frazier can still do that if Rolen isn't on the team. It isn't an example of how Scott contributes.
I realize he has practically no track record, but Paul was an excellent pinch hitter last year, has speed, can play 3 OF spots, and is young and healthy; all things that can't be said of Rolen.
Name me one team in baseball history with 2 bench players who could only play first or third.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
