2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Rajai in CF? I think most teams would take him. Plus, why don't you think Sweeney will continue to improve?
(Adam from Rochester)
I like Rajai Davis. I also know Rajai Davis is 29, and that the chances he'll be the starting center fielder on the next A's contender are only slightly better than Billy North's. Especially if that club's employing a right fielder with an ISO that barely tops .100, and happens to have "Sweeney" on the back of his jersey. I know, Sweeney dialed that up to .160 or so in the last two months. Let's see it over a full year before anybody risks throwing out his or her back doing somersaults. (Christina Kahrl)
