    Holy **** when did that happen? I had no idea he was 36. Seems like he just got in the league like 5 years ago. Sry I was mistaken. I wouldnít go 3 years.

    Funny how nobody cares about Turner's D, Vlady makes an error in winter ball and it's headlines.

    Turner was hitting so even if his defense was bad he was a positive player overall.

    I could totally see semien being our 3b if he can hit.

    Compared to Turner, Vlad wasnt hitting so if he has bad defense and cant hit, I can see why they have more frustration towards Vlad.

    Vladdy had 4 errors in winter ball in 8 games... with a fielding % of .857. That would make Turner look like a Gold Glover.

    Wont have to worry about him seeing many days at 3B after the Siemien signing, unless an injury happens to Bo, Cavan or Siemien.

    yea a 21 year-old vs a season vet. As I've stated numerous times Vlady needs to mash, he does that his d won't matter as much.

    I was just saying. Vlad does get some slack for being young but I can see why people are being impatient after 2 years.

    Not sure who mentioned it...there's a roster crunch atm. Vlady/Siemien at 3B would be fine, same with Biggio/Siemien. The others DH with Teo/Grichuk as well. Someone has to go

    The slash lines are almost identical though. Thatís where the worry lies.

    I use to say we needed to move someone, but don't feel like anymore.

    This roster has fragile moments where everyone other than Grich, Biggio, Vladdy and Jansen has had at least one lengthy stay on the DL over the past 3 years (don't know about Simien). With our roster flex, if one heads to the DL, we are able to put in an MLB ave to +ave player at each position, while letting our AAA team develop the young guts without having to rush them to fill a temp roster spot.

    I do have a lot of concerns about the injury but we could still use pitching so it does make sense if one of the bats has to go.

    Like if Girchuk is traded for pitching, Im fine with them signing a backup.
