    Eric, what do you think of the Phils switching Cesar to CF, does he have the make up to be a good CF’er?

    It’s early but is Ruf still a no chance bum? I know its been limited at bats but he hit last year and is he hitting again this year.

    KH,

    Have you seen his fielding? Just a few: knocked over Chase, couldn’t pick a very easy one-hop from MacDonald, and fell asleep when Quintero was trying to throw behind the runner at 1st.

    @KH….don’t forget 14 strikeouts in 28 at bats.

    It’s 14ks in 34 PA. He also has 5 BB 2HR and 3 doubles. 9 of those Ks ate vs RHP too.

    It’s an incredibly small sample to even think about analyzing.

    Go Ruf!!

    “knocked over Chase,”

    There may have been a communication error, but I thought it looked the other way around. Also Ruf made a great catch recently.
