Sickels on the Callaspo-Green trade


Recommended Posts

More Sickels.

 

And here's more on Green.

 

Here's the best part:

 

From the first article: "He was playing second base this year at Sacramento and that's probably his best position, although he could also be used effectively at third base or as a super-utility type."

 

From the second article: "He needs some polish after all the switching, but his range, arm strength, and hands all fit well there and in the end he should be above-average as a defender."

 

And:

 

"I don't think there is anything else that Green can learn from the Pacific Coast League so it is time to let him play. He's 25 now, a bit old for a premium prospect, but if he keeps the strike zone under control he should have a long big league career."

 

I find all of that very heartening. Yes, Green is no longer young - he's 25 and will be 26 in September. But he's a talented player and his poor defensive stats are largely due to switching around a lot.

 

Great trade - exactly the type of move that Dipoto should be making. Well done, Jerry.
