Those Up the Middle Spots
Fri May 4, 2018 09:55

Basically, it's Hedges and Margot that are concerning.

Seemed like the defense would hold out for them both, but it's pretty shocking how bad they've both been in terms of hitting the ball.

Given that they could have both been reasonably been expected to be on the next good Padres team.....that's the concerning development.

At least the talk of extending Galvis has gone away.

        Yep. Asuaje and Spang were placeholders for Urias, unless we decide to use him at short. But any mock lineups for the 2019-2024 dynasty included Hedges and Margot. Galvis. It's way too early to bring ... more

            I have to admit for falling for Galvis after the first week. I've also been bummed to see Manny start so poorly. But I'm not giving up yet. Franchy has been a revelation. I've actually been to quite... more

              The role of Grumpy Phil Nevin is now being played by Zach Cozart. Can the Rays survive the backlash? It's a great experiment, using lower quality arms early. It probably won't force any matchup... more

                I think AJ got caught completely surprised by the downturn in the FA market. I think a lot of GMs did. A wannabe Sludge Merchant got another dredging? I do think you're right, i think it remains to... more
