Dobbs: Ibanez 'Perfect' For Team

Paul Hagen spoke to Greg Dobbs about Raul Ibanez. Dobbs, who played with Ibanez from 2004-06, had this to say:

“Once I found out that we were interested in him, I thought he’d be perfect for our ballpark and our division. He has great power to all fields, he hits for average and he drives in runs.

“He’s a great guy, very professional. This will probably take playing time away from me, at least in the outfield. That’s OK.”

We might be pleasantly surprised by Ibanez. I think we should hold out all determinations until we actually see him play. I’ve been seeing a lot of fans chide Ibanez and the deal, but heck, wasn’t the championship supposed to create a new feeling of optimism? Come on, guys.
