I think this deserved it's own thread.
Joey Votto is starting in LF for the Bats today.
Edwin just commited another error.
It will be interesting to see if Votto stays in LF, and if they move Edwin to 1st base.
If that happens, this organization is in BAD hands for the future.
The only wy Votto sees left field is if Dunn is moved, and the only reason Dunn is moved is because his defensive ability is not up to Krivsky's standards. And if that happens, then I'm willing to bet Krivsky wants no part of Votto in left field.
In regards to EE, I don't think his defense is improving at all. I hav not been impressed with it all year. I still want him in the major league line-up because of the offense he offers, but knowing Krivsky's MO, I see him being traded if the defense continues to falter rather than a move to first.
So Edwin hasn't improved. He is only 24 years old. It may be to he is later in his 20's before his defense comes around. Defense is a lagging indicator, sorta like power.
The worst thing for Krivsky is trading Edwin and then he blows up big with another team and improves his defense. He would be the laughing stock of baseball.
