Interesting comments by JR. Who knows, perhaps sometime in the next decade they'll actually get some guys who can bunt, hit and run, move runners along...

I'm glad JR isn't general manager.

Why? Because, he wants the team to be more balanced and play better defense. :scratch:

They lost Cabrera who could run. They added Lillibridge maybe, Getz and/or Nix. Fields is a little faster than Crede but defensively not as good. If Owens plays CF he's faster than what they had but how many runs will his skill set manufacture? Everyone else appears to be the same. I don't see the huge speed increase.

I agree with JR's comments - I felt exactly the same way about the '08 team.

I just hope we can really do the things Ozzie is talking about. Working on some of the other basics such as executing run downs which we had problems with last year would also help.

I'm not saying it's necessarily here now. He was just saying in the future he wants a team that plays better defense and is more versatile. Basically, exactly what everyone on this board has been wanting. Let's hope it starts to materialize soon.
