First, some love for Cordero:

Really, I think this makes up my entire argument against signing Hosmer. They're early enough in the cycle, to want more data before making any significant investments.

I'd assume that signing Hosmer moves Myers to LF. Leaving Renfoe and Cordero to vie in RF. Seems too early to have to make that call, while wasting one of your big FA acquisitions best years.

Anyway, hope everyone is well.

Should be fun to see some pitchers up this year-

Mark

            Schmidt and Dykstra in back to back years. *Shakes fist* Alderson! One of my favorite forum quotes was about Schmidt, from CDank / Wahoo. I can't remember it exactly but it was something like "This... more
