Here is Bonds again by himself, not socializing. OH..no it's not. It is Bonds playing catch and talking with AA outfielder Fred Lewis.

What is your take on Lewis this spring? Does the kid have standout talent?

So far I have not seen Lewis do much of anything this spring. I have not seen him take batting practice because he takes BP on the practice field, which is not visible to the public. I saw him alot in the Arizona Fall League in 2004. He is one of the worse defensive players I have ever seen. At least in the AFL, he made Marvin Benard look like a gold glover.

Really??

WoW! I thought he was a good prospect. Your take is really harsh. I am big on good defensive skills for all our players. You really put a damper on my future hope for this kid.

Thanks so much! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the blog....

Lewis LED his AFL team in errors in 2004. Do you know how hard it is for an outfielder to lead his team in errors? He was also third on Norwich in errors last year with 14. He led the team for much of the season until his defense apparently improved the last month or two of the season. But he was so bad when I saw him......I am going to wait until I see it myself before I believe his defense has improved.
