Sanchez I don't know what to expect from because he is backing up two solid defenders in Beckham and Alexei. Can anyone provide any insight on his speed or base running ability? I don't know how I like Wise being pinch runner and our only back up OFer.

Wise, who I'd prefer a better player in our OF spot, but Atleast we know what to expect. It doesn't hurt that he can field and run though.
Is this true? From what I gathered it looked like he couldn't hit much at all and was purely here for his defensive strengths. I'm willing to give the guy a shot but I'd feel better with more of a veteran presence to back up Flowers.
