Defense of Denard Span


Just thinking about all of the criticism of D-Span's defense in CF. I like to consider that he spent the bulk of the season playing between Kubes and Delmon.... not a dream situation for ANY centerfielder. I think that he is over criticized considering the overall situation. Granted, he won't make you forget Torii, or Kirby in his youth, he is however better than people give him credit for. I would love to see him in left with a great defensive CF acquired via trade, but that seems unlikely. I think that with Cuddy in RF rather than Kubes, his numbers will improve significantly. Many CF's have had to compensate for one bad defensive OF by cheating a little. You cannot, however cheat both ways... you have to play it straight and take your chances. I don't think I'm alone in  this assessment. What do you think?
