Last year at this time Moises Alou wanted to have a good season so he could come back this year. This afternoon he talked about playing another year or two. His goal is 500 at-bats, which manager Willie Randolph thinks might be a little optimistic.
“I’d love to get over 500 at-bats,’’ Alou said. “If I do that I can have a great season. And, if I do that the team can have a great season.’’
Randolph said he must resist the temptation to go with the hot hand when it comes to Alou and better pick his spots to rest him.
