Expos sign Tony Batista


Recommended Posts

Expos agreed to terms with third baseman Tony Batista' date=' who had been with the Orioles, on a one-year contract. Although he did drive in 99 runs while batting in the middle of Baltimore's lineup, Batista is coming off an ugly season in which he hit just .235 with a 663 OPS. Still, this was a move the Expos had to make. Scott Hodges and Jamey Carroll aren't regular third basemen and Batista could bounce back. We're just scared that he's not going to hit sixth or seventh like he's supposed to. Whoever gets stuck batting behind Batista and his sub-.300 OBP is going to have a difficult time driving in runs.[/quote']
