Arias, the perfect centerfielder....NOT

In triple A...

-Walks only 19 times in 493 at-bats.
-Has a on-base percentage that was the fifth lowest in the Pacific Coast League.(.268)

Perfect tools of a major league center fielder, eh? Arias will likely be the backup to Kenny Lofton this year which makes me scared.  What if Lofton goes down?  Now we have a guy with a OBP under .300 in the minor leagues?

So we are grooming a guy that can't get on base and never walks for a leadoff hitter?  Thats the position we would use him for, don't deny it...

Hes a horrible defensive player at shortstop, how is he going to learn a new position.  Lets just say it won't be pretty watching him play in center field.  And many of you will say "The position center field is easier to learn than shortstop".  And I say "bull, he can't learn how to not swing the freaking bat, how is he going to be able to track a ball coming towards him".  He might try to swing at the ball with the glove for all I know!

Not to mention if he turns sideways, he will look like a piece of paper he is so skinny.

My point?  Trade him while he has some value, it won't last long...
