Forget what he looks like, just go by his statcast metrics:
38th in sprint speed
36th in Outs above average
28th in OF jump
Now he did come out average catch % added overall which means he's not awful out there, but his metrics tell us it's more than he's an awkward looking chubby guy out there with an inconsistent arm.
In my mind he's a DH that you can play in the corners on occasion but it will be hit or miss whether he will do something to hurt you out there.
You have nothing to lose by not giving Stewart 400 at bats this year.
He does have power and he will likely have a good OBP. We need some of that.
I personally don’t feel he is some awful OFer but I also think I would prefer to see other players out there but he can fill in out there from time to time if needs be.
Hopefully they fix it during the next lockout. I have no problem with guys earning this crazy money. But, Davis hasn't earned a nickel in 3 years
If owners aren't going to sign players in order to keep them they shouldn't be owners of Major League teams! Have I mentioned that I think we need a hard cap?
Then teams like the Yankees and Dodgers would have even more of an advantage....Again No CAP!
I can't be sure .... But, I played sports into my early 40s until it hurt to walk the next morning. I can tell you that I want to play and always did! I would much rather play on a team where I can start as opposed to watching others play. Since NFL players do it for a living and there is value to guys like RG3 to be an expensive paid spectator as opposed to doing some other kind of work. So I'd imagine it is palatable if Joe can find an interested party. I am just not sure how many interested parties there will be. I wonder out loud if Pittsburgh might have an interest as they probably have no choice but to move on from Ben R. I suspect that he's still better than Mason Rudolph and the Duck!
