This one is interesting to me. We’ve all had our fun calling Paul Janish the “batboy” because Dusty Baker refuses to let him leave the dugout for long stretches, but how good can Janish be? He’s a great defender…but how good? His hitting appears to have improved…but how much?

There is a decent chance that Paul Janish will be the starting shortstop for your Cincinnati Reds next season. What is the Nation’s collective wisdom regarding Soft-J? Is he overrated, underrated, or just rated? What is his future with the Reds, and what should his future be?
