    Im rooting for Felix but I would rather see one of our young arms win a spot over him. One of Newk, Touki, or Wilson winning a spot is better for us long term.

    Personally Im torn! Id like to see King Felix, Wright, and Newcomb all pitch well! If I had to choose, Id say Felix and Newcomb, simply because Wright has more time left. But on the other hand I think Wright still has TOR type stuff. So this may change day to day.

Another HR against an off speed pitch yesterday, and is just scorching the ball this spring. His approach at the plate is night and day, compared to the end of the year. It won't happen, but our best lineup would be Acuna in center, with Riley or Camargo playing outfield.

    Watching these camp battles it's so hard to figure out who's going to be there open day. I feel like carmargo is going to get third because of experience and then Riley will be up if he's crushing in the minors. As for the two spots in our rotation barring injury I'm sure Felix gets one of them. I think Newcombe ends up in the BP and then that fifth spot is tricky. What do you guys think so far barring injuries?

    Well with the season being delayed Hamels might actually have a shot of being healthy when the season does start. But if hes not Im hoping Newk and Wright can win those spots. King Felix bouncing back would be a great story but Newk/Wright earning rotation spots is much better for our long term success.

    Shanks tweeted he doesnt think Hamels will be ready when the season starts. Maybe mid August.

    Read the DH will be universal this season. Austin Riley as the DH and Johan Camargo at 3rd is hopefully going to happen.

    Uh DH is going to be Ozuna. Most said he looked horrid in the field and with this layoff assume it hasn't got better.

    I could see that but Ozuna at DH means Markakis probably starts in left. I would rather see Riley at DH. Markakis/Duvall platooning in left is another strong possibility.

    With Marky out Riley has to be a regular I imagine. Something like...

    Acuna
    Albies
    Freeman
    Ozuna
    Riley
    Camargo
    Swanson
    Catcher
    Inciarte

    That lineup is good if Riley hits and Camargo is his 2018 version. Both are big ifs...

    The only other option is to put Riley or Camargo on the bench and play Duvall. I would rather see if a Riley can figure things out and if Camargo is a player on this team moving forward

    We'll probably see platoons to start the season. Ozuna will be in the lineup daily regardless if he's in LF or DH. The rest could shake out multiple ways depending on who is hot/cold. Inciarte will be a key player IMO. We need his glove but if he struggles to hit he'll probably find himself on the bench quickly. I could see a scenario where he struggles to hit, Acuna moves to center, Duvall in right, Ozuna in LF or DH and Riley at DH or LF. That's probably the best scenario for the line up.

    Acuna CF
    Albies 2B
    Freeman 1B
    Ozuna LF
    Riley DH
    Camargo 3B
    Duvall RF
    Swanson SS
    d'Arnaud/Flowers C
