Aaron Rowand also had a good day at the plate, reaching base in all 3 plate appearances on a double, a single and a walk. I can't point to a single play, but in watching Rowand play CF this spring, I just don't see Gold Glove caliber defense. 150% hustle all the time yes, but his jumps and routes to the ball are just OK and he has to be the slowest Gold Glove outfielder ever. I know it is a small sample size, but so far, I'm not seeing the defensive prowess.
