    Day, Isn't 3B the most difficult position following C and SS? It requires strength, quickness and agility. DJ is an exceptional player, I have no doubt he could handle the position. However as he...

    Good point regarding Torres. I guess I have a bit more faith and confidence in him than most. DJ is a 2B, a 3X all star , three time GG and defensive player of the year at the position. I would be...

    Why move Chapman off a GG position? Best to leave him at 3B and move Gio to SS. Leave Torres at 2B, move DJ to 1B, (my least favored position for him). No need to spend big on Olson, downside you add...

    That was my point from the outset. Freeman may be the best bat in the bunch, but he's looking for a pay day and I'm not certain Hal deems that a high enough priority to justify the cost. Imo SS is a...
