[Ryan Langerhans is] 29, has about 1200 PA (two full seasons), his career wOBA is .314 (-7 per 150 G), and his UZR at a "neutral" position is +7 per 150 G. That’s a league average performance. MLB average. It’s sad for him that he’s been given a short shrift for so long. Willie Bloomquist, your typical white guy who scratches and claws his way into a lineup, is a barely above replacement level player, who has over 1600 PA in MLB, and has been around since 2002. The difference? He throws with his right hand, which means he gets to play the infield. Mom & Dad, whatever you do, make your son throw with his right hand (and bat with his left). If he insists on throwing with his left hand, make sure he practices his hitting alot or works on his control as a pitcher.
