    It's a one year deal according to Jim Bowden

    more of a platoon player now.
    Most likely, he won't face lefties.

    They will likely sign a platoon partner to play next to him

    I can see .280/.340/.425 for the season, facing basically only righties, and then find a compliment to face lefties

    If Yanks do not sign Chavez, I can see him being their platoon lefty at 1B. But I think Chavy like NY...not sure if Yanks want to go that direction again though.

    I would like to see Rays add more offense. Shields, Price, Hellickson, Moore is a great 1-4.

    And Cobb is no slouch either.

    Think Archer will win the 5th spot if he shows improved control in spring training. He's a TORP-in-the-making.

    Nope, solid, if not very good #5. Niemann, Davis are others. Rays really need to start trading...

    Those are better numbers than Ike Davis posted in 2012, and in the future, against LHP.

    .174/.225/.335
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Not sure how one of the weakest hitting first basemen in the league is going to suddenly flip the switch at his age. I've never been able to figure out (and obviously he and his coaches are on the same boat) how someone so big with such a pretty swing has so much trouble generating power. A shorter approach may do that slow bat some good.

    I can see James Shields being traded for Mike Morse and Danny Espinoza


    Rays
    C - Molina (somebody)
    1B - Loney/Morse platoon
    2B - Zobrist
    3B - Longoria
    SS - Espinoza
    LF - Morse most of the time, and occasional back up starts for an additional right handed bat whenever Morse needs to play first
    CF - Jennings
    RF - Joyce/Zobrist platoon
    DH - Last platoon partner

    Rotation
    1. Price
    2. Helly
    3. Moore
    4. Cobb
    5. Niemann/Archer/Ramos (and maybe Davis, but I doubt that)

    Nationals

    C - Flores/Suzuki
    1B - ?
    2B - Lombardozzi
    3B - Zimmerman
    SS - Desmond
    LF - Bernadina/?
    CF - Harper
    RF - Werth

    Rotation
    1. Strasburg
    2. Gio
    3. Shields
    4. Zimmerman
    5. Detwiller (I'm guessing)

    Don't know if this makes perfect sense for the Nationals, but it does for the Rays. Those are two of the kinds of guys they would look to add for Shields (maybe a prospect)

    It makes sense. Morse and Espinoza for Shields.

    ...Chavy doesn't make sense as a platoon partner with Loney. They're both lefties.

    He would look good, however, as the Jays back up3B/1B/DH
