    How is Ryan Raburn defensively? He’s hit with some power for a couple years now. He HAS to be better (overall) than Perez.

    There is no question that Rayburn is better than Perez. It’s almost by default.

    The reports on Raburn’s defense haven’t been encouraging. That said I’ve never seen him play, and there really aren’t minor league defensive metrics other than errors so I can’t really say.

    What is the Mud Hen’s record? I don’t think I’ve ever seen them lose on here. They have to be the best team in AAA.
