I'm glad to hear that we are going to be more athletic in the outfield. I also hopes this means we can get some stronger arms out there as well. I still don't really understand why you don't just designate Rhymes to hit. His game isn't fooling anyone.
My only guess is that they feel he is more locked in at the plate when he is also in the field.
I'm not hating on Rhymes, best pure hitter in a long time and clearly given what he did with his scholarship is an excellent team guy. I really just want to stem the tide of teams taking extra bases on the Tigers because we don't have a legitimate threat to throw anyone out. Clearly Sciambra's defense will help. Not sure what kind of arm he was sporting in center before the injury since the sample size was so small, but I would imagine it would be an upgrade.
