    If we're to get Villar then what's the plan? Move Vladdy to 1B and put him at 3B? Biggio to the OF? Villar to the OF? I definitely don't want to move Biggio to the OF for him.

    I’d put collar in left and LGjr in right. Grinch in CF unless they do something.

    I would try:

    Biggio LF
    Gurriel CF (he's a natural SS and athletic he might be able to handle CF)
    Grichuk RF

    Villar gets 2B

    Unless Vladdy turns into Cecil Fielder he stays at 3B

    ..then again might not want to disrupt Bo/Biggio in which case Villar could spot Vladdy, Bo and Biggio on their days off and maybe play a little LF or DH

    Word is we won’t be in on wheeler.

    Lyles or miley it is.

    “When we are in the middle of a sustained period of winning we’re going to look back at this offseason as a very important starting point to that. In addition to the core that’s transitioned already, this will be a big moment in time, this offseason for us where we’ve made another step forward to building around that depth”

    ...

    Does anyone think this team is as “deep” as Atkins seems to think?
    When I think “depth”, I think “above replacement level players”.

    This really angers me - to no end. How the hell do they expect to get to this "period of winning". Shoemaker, Clayton Richard and Buchholz are not going to do it...neither is Chase Andersen, neither is Bass. They have no chance on Wheeler he would be stupid to take the same money as other teams are offering - 0 chance we overpay to get him and even then he still might not come here.

    Cole, Bum and Ryu aren't coming here either.

    Our opening day starter will be a Tier 3 type pitcher

    They have money to spend but have also created a losing culture and players want nothing to do with it.

    I don’t think the MLB team is deep. Unless we’re talking with 4th OF or utility types.

    In before reed claims we have the best/deepest farm in the league and the mlb roster is only a couple pieces away.

    Exactly. The Rays have had deep farms for years. They won't spend the money to put them over the top. Oakland is another good example.
