I personally can't imagine that 1B coach is a really tough position to replace.


Subero did more than just coach 1st base. Having an assistant fluent in Spanish is a plus too.


I didn't know that Subero was Venezuelan too...So all of our tenured latino players (Arcia, Pina, Guerra, Perez, and Aguilar, anyway) and a coach were Venezuelan. Aguilar is already gone, Perez has been DFA'd once, Guerra is turning 35 and Arcia may be non-tendered.

I'd feel bad for Pina if they were all close and he is the only one retained, but that's pro-sports.

Arcia non-tendered?

Highly doubtful.

Villar was a talented, frustrating and inconsistent player. That's the kind of person that drives managers crazy. He was an erratic fielder, and his base running was often a source of frustration. Reliability is a huge part of being a professional ballplayer (or in any field). Teams pay big dollars to players to take care of business. Villar had obvious skills, and had had one great season. But had followed with several bad-mediocre ones. As a playoff contender, the club was at a point where 'bad' Villar was more common than 'good' Villar. You just can't live with that kind of production.

This is why Arcia is going to be heavily scrutinized. The club needs better and more consistent production from the position. If this was a sub-.500 team, you can live with his inconsistencies and hope he matures. But if you want to be a contender, the club might put more value on a different type of player.

Yeah. "Moving on" from Arcia would not be non-tendering him. It'd be him as the utility IF or getting platooned or starting the year in AAA or (unlikely as his trade value must be rock bottom) being traded. He is not getting non-tendered.
