I've been reading post after post on this blog about what a poor baseball player Bobby Crosby is. I kind of thought that 38 doubles last year and his Rookie Of The Year season showed he must have some use to the A's. I was wrong.
I doesn't matter how many hours he spent working out with McGwire and Holliday in the off-season -- the dude still stands 4 feet from the plate and can't handle outside pitches for some reason.
As far as contributing as a utilityman he's worse with a glove than a bat. It's too bad because he seems like a good guy. He even stopped warming up before a game last year to sign autographs for my daughter and her girlfriend -- then again, maybe that was because they are super attractive 19-year-old females?
