in less that 100 words. That is my assignment to all of you. I've spent the last 20 minutes or so perusing his baseball reference page. I'm sure he's a great teammate, and I get his outfield defense was really good once upon a time. But isn't there a point where you have to hit if you are an outfielder? His moderately ok walk rate does not justify his longevity as a major leaguer. I'd really like someone to explain it to me, as I watch him get starts at 2b over a guy like Josh Satin, who has just ripped up AA and AAA this year. Please explain how Willie Harris' 2b ability warrants major league starts, especially based on his last 2 years of playing. I look forward to the answers.
Here is Wille Harris' baseball reference page..if you take away his 2008 season, wow is he bad. There's not much else to say: http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/harriwi02.shtml
