Buster Olney talks to the scouts

New, comments

I really don't how much of this I can share since it all pay for view, but I think under the fair use policy I can do at least this:

From an NL talent evaluator:

---

"No. 3: The Marlins' every day lineup is very suspect to me. They've got the best starting rotation in the division, but Hanley Ramirez is now a third baseman playing shortstop. He's getting too big for that team.

Okay, I get the best starting rotation in the division, assuming they all stay healthy.  And I also get Hanley is growing himself out of playing short.  I don't want to go into a litany of stats to try and make my case.

But the "He's getting too big for that team" I don't understand.  Is he talking about money?  Is it something else?  I'm confused. 

Perhaps it makes sense to you, and if it does, please enlighten me.
