BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 Back in 1975, Neil Young had a hit song called `Cortez the Killer.` This Cortez is far more benign--sort of Cortez the Harmless--because he can`t hit. Given his track record, last year`s showing at Montgomery is best viewed as a fluke. He`s a decent fielder and he can nab a bag, but that`s all. When Alex Gonzalez hit the DL in early July, the Rays shifted Cantu over to third and promoted Cortez to the majors. Cortez`s stay lasted exactly three weeks, with predictably poor results; after the season he was taken off the 40-man roster. Young must have anticipated the Devil Rays with `Cortez` when he sang, `I still can`t remember when or how I lost my way.`
