" As I said, you don't win a platinum glove for being a slouch defensively. Buxton is far and away the best defensive outfielder in the game. "

catman replied to the thread Yankees Should Trade Miguel Andujar.
" The Yankees are trying to stay under the luxury tax threshold and have no one in their system that is anywhere near ready to step in and play 3B at the major league level. Andujar is inexpensive and is acceptable defensively, along with good at the bat. If they are going to trade anyone, it should be Hicks. He has blossomed in New York. "

By the way, huge difference between offense in the Majors and any other level. Some adapt to it, some don't. So far Buxton hasn't.
I agree with this, but this is how good Buxton is defensively. "

No sense being a designated runner because that's a waste of money. The speed impact he has only makes sense with offense.
I guess you know more than most of the pundits on the MLB Network. Buxton is an elite defender. If he reaches his projection of .260, he'll be an all star.
Have you ever seen him play in person? I saw him play in the Midwest League many times and he was just as good at that level as Trout was (yes I saw him many times as well -- they played for the same team a couple of years apart). Trout's development was better than Buxton's was, obviously, but Buxton's ceiling is very, very high. "

Buxton is a far better fielder than Engel is. He's also better than Heyward. You don't win a platinum glove for being a slouch. "

catman created the thread Tony Conigliaro.
" How good could this guy have been, had he not been hit in the side of the head by a Jack Hamilton fastball?
I know that there are not many of us that remember seeing him play live, but the guy could hit, run, throw, hit for power and was a decent outfielder. He tried to make a comeback as a pitcher and did OK, but just didn't have it anymore. "

catman created the thread David Wright.
" Another player that was on the Hall of Fame highway, but got derailed by injuries. According to baseball reference, his career WAR was 50.2 with a 7-year peak of 40.2 and a JAWS rating of 45.3. Excellent player, but not quite good enough for the Hall, IMO.
Thoughts? "
