Absolutely. Toriiiii Hunter has nothing on him. 2 1.42%
Not the best, but definitely league elite 8 5.67%
He's not great, but he is adequate 53 37.59%
He's a stopgap forced by lack of options. He is a corner outfielder at best. 55 39.01%
He sucks totally and completely. 23 16.31%

Okay, Sox fans, the vocal minority has forced the issue. What's your stance on Aaron Crash Rowand?

This poll sucks. Why don't you just ask if he's a good CF? Yes or no.

Isn't it painfully obvious by now that Rowand doesn't have the stick to be a corner outfielder? That leaves just one option... the bottom one.

I think that

"He is best suited for a fourth outfielder position" needs to be an option...

That's why this poll sucks. Offense is not an issue in this discussion. The argument is whether or not he is a good center fielder. If your going to have a poll in an attempt to prove something, at least make the information relevant to the debate. As it stands people are obviously confused to what your asking about. This strictly about defense.

I was trying to cover all the bases. Seems the good will be covered by the top two options and the bad will be covered by the bottom two options. Pretty simple math.

I also figured that giving people a chance to weigh in on how good or bad he is might shed some light on the matter.

I agree, but I was merely asking about defensive ability. If people feel he is an adequate corner defensive player, they should be able to say so...

If you think Rowand is among the league elite, you must be blind to the Johnny Damons and Carlos Beltrans of the world

Not to mention Andruw Jones, who may be the best defensive center fielder of all time, and Mike Cameron.

That's why the poll is flawed. He isn't those guys by any means, but I think he is just a step below from a defensive perspective.

If that "step" is the size of one of the blocks in the Great Pyramid.

Lol. All I'm saying is, I know he isn't those guys, but I continue to see him as a good CF.

Well, he did hit the cutoff man, but first he dropped the baseball which was right at him on a single. E-8

That wasn't a good play. No harm done, but that's no excuse. I still detyermine that to be the exception rather than the norm. Agreed though, bad play.
