Not sure many people have noticed but Holt has tailed off since his early burst of offense. Hid 287BA is still pretty good along with a .334OBP but lets see how he ends the season. Holt has little power and needs to hit because he is not an every day defensive player which is another reason Cecchini can't play 3B. If we don't upgrade with a Stanton I want another power bat/OB guy somewhere and 3B is the logical place.
Agree on Holt. He had a really good May and June but then dropped to .278/.328/.389 (still respectable) in July and then .254/.310/.288 (a Bradleyesque slugging percentage) in August, all of which was pretty foreseeable despite his exciting first half.
I see him more as a multi-positional utility guy and think he'll be very valuable in that role next year; like Nava, he's great to have when injuries come a'calling, but I would not necessarily pencil him in as an everyday player.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
But, man, the notion of having Nava as your OF/1B utility guy and Holt as your IF utility guy is pretty exciting. Super subs forrealsies.
I agree but lets just roll with the punches our FO plans on laying out. For Nava to stay in the mix we would need to lose a few guys through trade and Shane "if healthy" is much more valuable. Holt has the best shot at sticking as our super utility IF guy, we really don't need him in the OF for obvious reasons but its nice to know he can play there if needed.
Yeah, Nava has a harder road to stay with the club, given the glut of OF, but:
1. "if healthy" Shane Victorino - coming off serious back surgery? I dont know man. Gonna be hard to move so they may be stuck with him. I am no doctore, but i do play one on the internet. I think we have seen the last of Shane Victorino having any value.
2. JBJ is JBJ
3. Allen Craig is trade bait. I find it hard to believe he sticks around in a back up role (you see what I did there? I totally pencilled in a starting OF of Cespedes/Castillo/Betts).
4. Daniel Nava is the survivor of all survivors. As a betting man, I wouldn't bet against Nava finding a way onto the roster.
