Morrison and Weight were crap in ANA. But they aren't here now so I don't see how they relate to evaluating Bonino now.

The problem is we don't have a proven 2C unless you count Saku. Anybody we put there is either going to grow into the job or not. But nobody will be transformed overnight. And unless you blame Bonino for Ryan and Teemu looking lost out there I think we need to point to the veterans first. Don't we expect more from vets than semi-rookies?
