Even I am souring on Callaspo.


Recommended Posts

Bout time. Your argument for him was that he was "adequate". I have never considered him to be anything but

a 250 hitter, and a below average fielder @ 3B.

Poster boy for going through the motions and collecting a paycheck.

Hes not a below average fielder.

And he is adequate. He's also struggling at the moment.

He is what he is....While he is not the main problem, and he is going through a rough patch throwing the baseball. He can catch the ball but he cant throw it. He is a .250 switch hitter. He is what he is, always has been, always will be.

The only way he is acceptable @ 3rd, is if other players are carrying their weight.

If you have a light hitting outfield, and light hitting catchers, and light hitting DH's ..a light hitting 3B  sticks out really badly.

The only way a Callapso makes sense, is if the guys you pay to hit, hit.

All the 3B this team could have signed...and they went for this guy. In and out of the org, and then back in.

This has Scioscia written on it.

He thought he had another Figgy, in an undersized, light hitting 3B that fit his mold.

Scioscia is about as good with 3B as he is with catchers.

He has yet to bring a decent one into the fold.

3rd is a position that right now in mlb overall is pretty weak. sure there's exceptions like david wright but callaspo is average to above average when compared to the rest of the leauge at 3rd base. he is a placeholder until cowart is ready.
