Does anybody know: Can Holt play shortstop?


Found this info on the web:

PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES



Holt played JC ball for two years at Navarro College, then transferred to Rice. Originally a shortstop, he moved to second because Rice had a star shortstop in Rick Hague. He had a solid, all-around offensive year for Rice, although he’s never likely to hit for so much power as a pro. The Pirates, consistent with their philosophy, will try to develop him as a shortstop. Scouts, however, aren’t convinced he has the range and arm to stay there, in part due to his size. He also doesn’t have a great arm. He’s not exceptionally fast and hasn’t been a good base stealer in the minors.


Sounds like a second baseman in MLB.

As Tony the Tiger would say, 'Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!'

Pretty good timing, after the cupcake schedule, too.

Going to need more pop and speed, not to mention valuable depth, vs. Cincy and better competition.


Of course, if they do not TCOB against said cupcake schedule, those games against better competition will mean about nothing.

If Holt could play SS we may have found our lead off hitter

If he could be steady, even with a little less range, and continue to hit, it might be worthwhile.

I saw him play SS here in Harrisburg this past June. He wasn't terrible, but you culd tell he lacked little in range and more than a little in arm for that position. Offense could make up for that, though. Eckstein made it work for a few years at that size.

The Ric Flair Wooo that is going on right now is one of the longest and loudest I have ever heard at any event.

First thing I saw, too.

I guess Clint can't get enough of that black hole at the bottom of the lineup. Whem Barmes and/or Tabata plays, Barajas MUST play, and so on.

Heaven forbid the best 9 play...

When does Marte return?! :twisted:


Don't know why you included Tabata, he's batting 261 with a 346 on base since coming back.

I love this forum. Guy has a 3 for 3 night at the 1 spot and we have found our leadoff hitter. Why did you you say it last night when he was 0 for 3?

I don't care where he hits in the lineup as long as he's in there. Our option at short is God awful and I suppose its taken the organization all year to figure that out. While I'm on it please release barajas. Following bedard wouldn't be a bad thing. Call up Sanchez.
