    I didn't see that. MLB.com did not have him on the 2019 list. I'm just assuming that since he's not getting any younger, he didn't move up. He was their organizational 6th at the end of the year.

    I'd take Schmidt from NY. He's probably ready right now to step in to a BOTR spot with a shot at being a 3. He's 24 years old and throws 4 average to above average pitches.

    Conversely, they may...

    I agree 100% with this. If there's one thing Q can do, it's eat up innings every year.

    We don't really need to get much back, as it will likely be more of a salary dump. But since the Yanks may...

    I agree that Nico will be nowhere near the top of the order. Depending on LHP/RHP, I see him hitting 7th or 8th.

    That just sucks with the Comcast situation. I don't normally watch ST games anyway when they are on. But it's nice to know that I will be able to watch them all now if I choose. You know, a cigar...

    I agree. I could see VC getting around 40 starts, and maybe Souza getting about 70 starts. Other than that, I think we may see a pretty consistent lineup. And of course the miscellaneous starts...

    I wonder too. We have no idea what his style is as of right now. I'm guessing because he's already announced our lead off hitter, and likely #2 hitter, he may not mess with the lineup too much. At...

    Well, if it's any consolation, most teams aren't strong from 6-8. I think Happ is breaking out this year. I also think the RF production will be much better because JHey likely won't be seeing LHP...

    That would certainly work. I think they have a very potent offense and expect big things from this team this season.

    I agree about LHP. Switching Willy and Javi will work also. I gotta be honest with you....this is a stacked lineup with the top 5, and I think top 6.

    Rizzo
    Willy
    Javi
    Kyle
    Happ

    KB's career numbers

    385 OBA
    516 SLG
    901 OPS

    He's going to produce no matter where he's slotted in. Having him at the top of the order should make for a better offense.

    I think that Springer is a nice comparison.

    Not looking for accolades, but I'll take them!! It's not too often that they're given on this site.

    Hey, where's CP been?

    I'm not really sure that we need a typical, traditional lead off hitter. As far as I'm concerned, it just needs to be one or two guys that get on base at a high rate to be that person every game. ...

    I just believe that we should give a serious look at in house options before paying for a guy, or giving up something to get a guy. I'd say that they have at least 2 months to figure that out.
