Although FWIW I'd rather roll the dice on Choo than Kemp........but I'm fine with a Nava/Gomes platoon for one more year.
A lot of people probably don't realize our left fielders provided the third-best OPS from the position in MLB last season. The Nava/Gomes combination proved to be incredibly productive and should again in 2014.
Kind of feels like we are searching for $100 million solutions where there really isn't a problem. Luckily, I doubt Ben C is.
What are the odds we catch lightening in that bottle again. Heck, last year was great. Alot of the "fringe" moves we all hated at the time worked. Drew, naps, Carp, Gomes, etc all played great. I just hate to count on all of them doing it again PLUS JBJ, WMB, and Boggie playing as well as those other guys did. Sometimes good enough just isn't quite enough...
We could just as easily assume that Choo's platoon splits will continue to decline as they have, turning him into a 20 million a year platoon player in a few years.
