One move that I really liked this off-season was the signing of David Newhan. The scrappy, 33 year old, can play just about every position from second, first, third, and outfield. In 2004 Newhan had a .311 batting average in 95 games played. He also managed to put up 66 runs, 54 RBI’s, and 8 home runs. What I’ve seen with him when he was on the Orioles is he gives it his all every day. This could turn out to be a good back up plan if Valentin is not as successful as last year and Anderson Hernandez, who began last season at second base and is remembered for his catch where he is almost flying, is unsuccessful. Plus, how can he be bad with a smile like that.
