Hanley Ramirez is the Dodgers’ shortstop. Period.
Dee Gordon has demonstrated that he is not an elite-caliber defensive shortstop.
Wait, that’s not true. He has actually shown that he has no future as a shortstop.
If Dee Gordon ever makes it as a major league player, it will be as a CF and a speedy leadoff hitter who can put up a .340+ OB%.
It’s time to move Dee Gordon to one of two places:
- To Albuquerque to learn to play CF; or
- To another team to learn to play CF.
Either way, Dee Gordon is not in the Dodgers 2013 plans… maybe 2014!
Michael Bourn wants too much money and Andre Ethier might really have a career year this season under Big Mac. I think that the Dodgers should be done… for now, unless they can pick up a leadoff hitter who happens to play 3B.
