    I think this just gives Vladdy more time to take ground balls and learn how to play 3B at a major league level. They needed someone ready to play a solid 3B right now, and Semien can either do that, or move Bichette over if he's a better defender at SS.

    If Vladdy does prove he can play 3B, then they could play Semien and Bichette up the middle with Biggio as their Util man. Either way, they just got a whole lot better again... And spent another 18M on another type A free agent ( I believe he is anyway).

    They are saying Semien is going to play second.

    Not enough DH ABs for Vlad, Rowdy, and Hernandez.

    I dont get that signing. We needed pitching and coulda got someone at that price. Something else must be in the works.

    If he can be half the player he was in 2019 thats a hell of a deal. I hope it didnt compromise our ability to spend on pitching though.

    I guess Grichuk is starting at 4th OF.

    It could mean a trade with Cinci or someone is coming for a SP. Or maybe they still have more money for someone like Walker?

    I'd assume they'd at least have more money. It would be foolish to enter the season with Ryu/Pearson/Roark/Ray/Stripling was the starting 5.

    So they haven't told Vladdy he aint playing 3B yet..they will let him stay motivated. ..

    Also, I retract my " we just got a whole lot better" statement. Semien had a higher fWAR that Springer over the last 2 years and is insurance for Bichette at SS. However, his stats worry me. He has only had one elite season hos entire career. Every other season his offense has been meh. He could very well turn into an 18M dollar bench bat if he doesn't hit closer to 2019 than the rest of his career. Or play GG caliber defense somewhere.

    He becomes our Flex INF. Can play 3B, SS or 2B in a pinch. Allows for a lot of flex and in case someone gets injured. Bit of an overpay. I had him pegged 12-16 mil, but one year allows for a show me deal for him. Does he revert to his MVP form from 2019 or last year?

    Either way keeps our options open for 2021 FA INF and SP bonanza market.
    Now onto a SP!

    Im ok with the 18m as long as we can sign a sp like Walker or better (or in trade).

    I had the feeling wed give Roark/stripling the 5
    Spot to start.

    Could always give semien a QO if he rips it up this year.

    Im for primarily teo at dh (or better yet, teach him 1b and put vlad at dh) with grichuk in rf when all are healthy. Rowdy to bench or trade.

    Could we see a rowdy, Jansen and prospect trade for a sp?

    Vlad, Jansen and prospect megatrade for a sp?

    Promote kirk in those cases
