The other day, I questioned whether John Bowker was really as bad at first base as his reputation, because I didn't remember him being quite so awful. But I guess he was, or at least Sabean thinks so
Sabean said the club has to respect what John Bowker did last season, but Ishikawa’s defense gives him a leg-up.
"As we saw while experimenting, defense is too important at that position, and Ishikawa is one of better defensive first basemen in the minor leagues," Sabean said.
If I know my Sabean-speak, that means that he considers Bowker's play at first a complete trainwreck. Considering that Eugenio Velez is still in contention to start at second base, that's saying something.
