BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 James Van Ostrand is a big Canadian with a nice line-drive stroke, but he doesn't profile as a major-league first baseman. Unfortunately, suspect glove work and a lack of speed preclude him from playing any other position.
2009 James Van Ostrand was an old-for-his-leagues, slow, Canadian Olympic player. On the bright side, he's the best badminton player in baseball.
