    If the question is what his capacity is to improve, another fact-based analysis is that his previous team exposed him to waivers.

    I wonder if he caught appendicitis from that. Weren't those experiments terminated in the 90's?

    That same manager ran out Juan Castro for what seemed like an eternity. The front office should give that manager better players and remove his ability to choose between the lesser (or, as Gardy is fond of doing at times, greater) of two evils.

    Can I like this twice? I understand it's tough to develop or acquire shortstops. But it is tough to watch the team that routinely fields one of the worst shortstops in the league. And the manager hasn't helped. He was reportedly the one who expressed his disappointment in Hardy, leading to that horrible trade. Shades of the Bartlett/Castro fiasco; or his love for Punto as an everyday player (to whom we paid everyday shortstop wages after a half a good year at the position). And who can forget Brendan Harris, who literally tripped over his own feet trying to cover the hole?

    I agree with you if Florimon is the only weak link offensively. I disagree if you have a glaring gap at center and catcher and have 3 number 9 hitters, also if you have terrible defense in the outfield in general. You need to make up the run differential somehow.
