Hey, can someone shed some light on how he plays ? I heard he was a left handed hitting second baseman.
What do people say about him ?
let's do this
Okay hang on.
I thought i heard Bob Brenly say he plays good defense.
Does he play good defense ?
I don't really care what his OPS is right now.
How old is he ?
How many at bats as a major leaguer does he have ?
I don't know how to use the internet and plus it's funner to just talk about it.
People, this board isn't really about us.
I think it is for discussing baseball.
Hey that sounds pretty good then.
plus the addition by subtraction factor in Theriot
Hey we got a good thread going here now
Ouch on the last part.
I guess it makes you wonder what the heck we have been doing with Theriot to begin with
DeWitt will hit a HR now and then, unlike Theriot. He is not just a slap singles hitter. He was projected to show more power (a latter day Koyie Hill, so to speak, another Dodger prospect who went bust), but has never panned out.
He is not a great defender, but Theriot was a mediocre defender at best, so I can only judge DeWitt to be an improvement. Besides, he and Castro could make a nice tandem, as they get to work together on a daily basis. And DeWitt CAN play 3B. That may be important if Ramirez is either traded or moved to 1B. Of course, that leaves a gap at 2B again, but the Cubs still have Baker and Fontenot to pick up the <slack.
I'd say DeWitt is still learning and adjusting to the big league game.
To think that we know a player already in his first year, well that is just silly. The speak about him having natural hitting talent is a good sign for improvement maybe.
I guess if it started today, the lineup would be this...
LF SorianoCF ByrdRF Fukudome3B RamirezSS Castro2B DeWitt1B ColvinC Soto
tell me Fontenot is not going to be on the team next year... he is not going to be on the team. Is he under contract?... please no
Fontenot is arbitration eligible. Look for yourself:
Does that mean he is under contract then ?
The Cubs are not carrying 2 left handed second baseman next year.
He'll be dealt then
Let's see, yes, mm hmm, ...I'll take one trade him please.
Things are looking up.
The Cubs will win the division next year.
Tell your friends.
I'm actually indifferent to whether Fukudome stays or goes. I'd like to see him stay I guess actually.
I'd say it's a 50/50 chance or so.
