Yeah that's what I was trying to get at. He can ably field the position and if he can hit .250 again won't be a black hole, but if it goes too long he's definitely not the hitter that Polanco is.

The advantage with Polanco at 3B is that he isn't one of our power bats. It isn't like on other teams where if they lose 3B they have a power vacuum in their lineup.
Didn't really think of it that way, but it's a good point. I'd still like to see a bit better hitter as our backup 3B since guys like that should be out there somewhere, but that's really just picking nits at this point.
