According to Tony Jackson, Aaron Miles had laser eye surgery last off-season, which could account for his productivity increase. I will make the case for Miles and Miles (it’s simple):
- Batting .364 this spring
- Can play 2B, SS, 3B
- Veteran presence
- Been there, Done that!
- Castro is old – needs to retire
- Sellers is hitting .214 with 4 errors – back to AAA.
- DeJesus needs to play everyday.
That’ settles it – Aaron Miles and Jamey Carroll are the Dodgers Super-utility players. I actually like that a lot, especially if the laser surgery has made Miles a better hitter. That’s a nice backup duo.
While I am at it, I’ll say that the Dodgers should cut Gibbons and move ahead with what’s left: Kapler, Paul, Thames, Hoffman, Gwynn, et al. May the best man win.
