Washington manager Manny Acta has declared that the estimable Nook Logan will be his starting center fielder in 2007, according to a Washington Post story.
"We need to play better defense, and we will play better defense," Acta said. "Nook is a big part of that. That's a premium position. You have to cover a lot of ground in center, especially when you play at RFK. That sets the tone up the middle. I think he'll be a tremendous boost to our defense."
That's going to have to be some really good defense to make up for Logan's career OPS+ of 78. Even Juan Pierre is at 86.
Logan has two home runs in his career, both at Coors Field.
