I remember people wanting him when the Mets released him. That release never made sense, given the fact versatility is even more valuable in the NL with potential double switches and pitchhitting for the pitcher.


If we didn't have the DH spot occupied, that Alex Guerrero would be a nice DH. He doesn't rate as a fielder, but it seems he can rake. LA has so much depth.




I kept yelling to grab him when the Mets DFA'd him.  Love those versatile players.   We still did good in that department finding Yangervis Solarte.   Johnson, Roberts, Anna, and Sizemore were busts but all inexpensive reasonable gambles.  I think Drew ll and Didi were expensive gambles.




Speaking of whom: I notice that Solarte's hitting close to .290 and playing utility infield for SD (he even played 1B last night).

Solarte's platooning. The Padres thought so much of Solarte that they traded for the great Will Middlebrooks to be their primary thirdbaseman. Solarte's seen some action at 3rd, but more at 1st and 2nd.
