According to Joe, Conine is going to ride the pine. Interesting. I'd rather see AJ get the nod on opening day.

Methinks Willingham takes the RF job sometime during the first month.

What do you know about his OF defense and his arm strength?

As of the last report he has a strong arm, but his defense is questionable. I see him overcoming that limitation.

Cabrera should be playing right field. There is no player in the history of baseball who was an average to above average left fielder, but put him in right field and he simply can't catch the ball. Cabs just was not used to reading the ball off the bat from the right side of the field, and that just comes with time. With that kind of arm he is the prototypical right fielder.

Could his defense in RF be any worse than Cabrera's?

I'd agree in theory, ff, but he looked awful there. Maybe he can get comfortable enough there during ST and winter leagues to allow Willy a chance in the easier LF.

It will be interesting to see if they play him in RF in ST.

 

Winter leagues are over, and from what I saw he mostly played 3B.

Joe is some guy MLB.com plucked out to put his journalism degree to some use.

 

Kinda harsh to put it like that, but he has no more access to Loria, Samson, McKeon or anyone in the organization than LeBatard, Berardino, Collazo or any of the beat reporters. I'd take his projections with the same grain of salt reserved for the independent writers that are allowed to criticize the franchise.
