Bye bye Botts
The Rangers DFA'ed a lot of peoples unhealthy obsession today, Jason Botts. I was not one of those people. There is no doubt he LOOKS like he should be a star in baseball, but I look somewhat athletic, and we all know thats bullshit. The kid just has no position. He can't field well enough to play in the outfield, he is a very poor defensive first baseman, and above all, he can not hit. Sure, he'll hit .320/.436/.545 in the minors, but his career numbers at The Show are awful: .235/.323/.321. Those numbers just don't cut it for someone who's only position is DH.
