I`ve read a lot of posts on this topic and I have to say you all have valid points. But I personally like how they are setting themselves up for the offseason and have a show piece for the rest of the year if he does well. And a trade chip if he does well. And if he tears the cover off the ball the next 3 weeks. I offer him an extension because that means he is getting it in the clubhouse and on the field. Ortiz is going to be gone soon so left field or DH. Mixed with Napoli at DH. And Craig at first. With that being said. We still have the trade pcs for Stanton.
Will Middlebrooks/Hanley Ramirez/McGehee 3rd
Xander Bogaerts /Holt SS
Christian Vasquez /Daniel Butler/Russell Martin catcher
J B J center
4th outfield would have to be Shane Vic/Nava/Craig
I like Vic/Craig both healthy
let them fight it out in spring training.
Rubby De La Rosa
Stanton long term
Max Scherzer long term
Cespedes mid to long term
I left some fighting for spots in the lineup.
we loose a lot of prospects in Stanton trade
If Stanton falls through we sign Cruz
Live every day like its your last till your team wins the next championship!!!!!!
