I know the club really soured on Luis Matos, with various officials noting how he seemed out of shape and lazy. Guys in the bullpen would watch in horror as Matos got another late jump on the ball, and how he often didn't seem ready as the pitch was being thrown. They'd joke about how casually he stood in center field as the ball was being delivered to a batter, as if he was waiting through a pitching change. But I don't see where Lofton, well past his prime, is a huge upgrade. If it's just a matter of keeping the position warm for Val Majewski or Nick Markakis, find somebody else.
