He’s been way to inconsistent on the field and at the plate. I’ll admit, he’s had some dazzling plays here and there but he’s literally the only guy in the field that I cringe when the ball’s hit his direction. Right now I’d give anyone with some promise the time of day. I was excited when they signed rodriguez at first just because it meant less time that Ronny was on the field, but it didn’t work out. The worst thing that couldl happen is that it doesn’t pan out and we have to go back to RC.

I think at some point you have to also take into account the small sample size of plate appearances plus future potential.

His career numbers are actually worse than Cedeno’s numbers. Now, he did have that amazing A ball season and a pretty good AAA season. He could bust out again as he is only 26 years old. But, I’m not counting on it. I’m hoping for it, but not counting on it.

Seriously, he can’t be worse than Cedeno. The bucs don’t have anyone very close in the minors and weren’t able to snag anyone in the offseason via trade. Hopefully it works out.
