More hating on Klesko

From Buster Olney's Blog:

The Padres want Ryan Klesko ready to play first base. Got this e-mail yesterday, after I wrote that outfield is Klesko's best position:

I know this is nitpicking, but did you see Ryan Klesko in the outfield for the Padres last season? He looked like a VW Van out there. At least when he's parked in one spot he won't stink up the ballpark as much.

Vin: Your dissent is noted. I wonder, though, if he will do more damage playing first base. Mike Piazza doesn't have the feet to play first, but after watching Klesko try to play first for the Braves, it can safely be said Klesko has never had the hands to play the position.
