Refreshing to be the headline info on his column. Buster olney's daily piece started with a couple cool quotes from the Ninja and scouts.
- On the organization liking all 3 SS:
"So do evaluators with other teams. I spoke to a couple who have seen a lot of the trio, and they agree that Wood needs more time to evolve defensively, and they believe he's destined to change positions, because of the presence of Aybar and Izturis. One evaluator thinks Aybar should be the shortstop -- "he has a higher ceiling" -- and another says he would start Izturis. "What he's given them the last couple of years is very underrated, under-appreciated,"
- Shields' struggles were mechanical and they expect him to be back to his normal self this year.
- Impressed with Ervin's winter league performance thus far.
