Evan Grant has a story up on Joaquin Arias over at Inside Corner, and how he's gone from a prize part of the Alex Rodriguez deal to an afterthought.
I'm not entirely sure what role Arias could possibly have going forward on this team. He can't really throw well enough to play shortstop or third in the majors regularly, and has never hit well in the minors. And he turns 25 in September and is out of options after this season.
Ron Washington having him hit leadoff is really bizarre.
