Tristan H. Cockcroft: Good morning everyone! Spring games are underway, and the excitement of the coming season couldn't be greater ... Who's got a question?
Gene (New Haven): Should i give up Crawford for Hafner, I have Vlad, Cuddyer and Burke as my other OF options? Im leaning towards doing it,but crawfords my only legitimate stolen base threat.
Tristan H. Cockcroft: I wouldn't. Sure, you're solid in the outfield with Vladimir Guerrero and Michael Cuddyer, and some might tell you you're OK in steals with Chris Burke, but I don't call Burke too keeper worthy. He's more of a late-round sleeper type. I wouldn't make that trade; I'd stick with an outfield of Carl Crawford, Vlad and Cuddyer.
