Smell You Later

I often say the first baseball writing I ever publicly published was back in 2007 wishing the Dodgers would play Wilson Betemit over Nomar Garciaparra at third base, largely because Juan Pierre was outslugging Nomar — it used fielding percentage! — but that’s not really true.

Rays send infielder Wilson Betemit to Triple-A

Veteran infielder Wilson Betemit was unable to land a spot on the bench of the Tampa Bay Rays but has opted to stay around the organization accepting a assignment to Triple-A. Betemit, 32, hit .259/.353/.333 with four RBI in 27 games this spring.
