I mention this with some regularity but it is still not clear to me why 3rd base is not an option for a converted catcher (e.g. Napoli or hell even Lavarnway).
Extra Bases has Bradley listed in center. I wonder if whatever site you looked at put in the wrong "B" prospect.
I agree that it's not a guaranteed successful conversion. However, I think it should be considered more often than it is and it is not clear to me why 1st base is always the fallback position but 3rd base is not. If the player is capable of playing 1st, my belief is that it probably is worthwhile to see if he can play 3rd. This is especially true with the offensive bar being lower at 3rd than at 1st.
How soon will Tazawa be closing?
Going to five games the next two weeks, let me know whose career you'd like me to ruin.

Looks like the Yankees might be the ones bit by the injury bug this year: Granderson hit by a pitch in his first ST PA, and will miss 10 weeks with a fractured forearm.
This is really great news
IF he's back to the pitcher he was in 2010 and 2011, then he's a better pitcher than the nominal closer.
First Ellsbury's ribs, then Bucholz's back, now Papi's heels
Napoli made 3 good plays that inning at first base.
@keithlaw: Have heard raves about him all month. RT @ThomasJCarvalho: What do you think of Henry Owens? Touched 95 today and added 14 lbs.
Hating on one of the best possible feel-good stories of the spring is no fun, teddy.
