Good for Podsednik, though I don't think Hurdle has any idea what he's in for with Podsednik's defense.

The article said he was alternative to their current center fielder, Willy Taveras. Surely they won't put him in the gigantic Coors Field centerfield? I'd imagine they'd switch people around, but I haven't followed the Rockies.

For the past few seasons, it's seemed that outfielder 4 and 5 are technically back-ups for all of the starters but they are usually credited as Taveras' back-up. Holliday and Hawpe don't take too many days off.

IMO, Pods defensive time will be pretty limited. When he does go in, Spilly will more than likely already be in or go in as the CF while Pods spends time in right or left.

Good for Pods! Hope he's able to tear it up against the NL! Especially the Cubs!

Yeah, uh, no. :smile:

Their left fielder, Holliday, is one of the best hitters in baseball. Their right fielder, Hawpe, is no slouch. Neither is capable of playing another position and they aren't going to sit so that Podsednik can play. So if Pods is going to start (other than in the very occasional rest day for Holliday/Hawpe), it's going to be in center over Taveras.

Most of Pods' playing time will come as a pinch hitter for the pitcher or a pinch runner late in the game.

Hey, I'm happy for him as long as he isn't in our lineup! Nice job making another team. :gulp:

I'm really happy for Scottie. I'll always have a warm spot for him. But centerfield, yikes!

Do we play the Rockies in interleague this year? It would be a perfect time to retire ol' number 22.

Yes, they come the weekend of June 13-15. It'll be time to give Pods the standing ovation he deserves. Just rename the blue seat in right-center the "Podsednik seat" already.

I already call it that. That's Pods seat, and Konerko's is in left.

As Jjav and I have stated, he's not going to see much - if any - time in CF.

For the past few seasons, it's seemed that outfielder 4 and 5 are technically back-ups for all of the starters but they are usually credited as Taveras' back-up. Holliday and Hawpe don't take too many days off.

Just make sure you guys save me a handful of seats in the bleachers! :D:
