From: Portland, Oregon
What I would like to see next year:
Catchers: Jeffers and Fred Garvin
1B: I would seriously shop Sano in the off season. He could bring back a good return and frankly when he slumps, he just a black hole in the batting order. I think his 1B will come around, but he still has the same terrible plate discipline, he had when he first came up. Kirilloff or Rooker would not supply as much power, but would be more consistent bats.
2B: Arraez. I would listen to offers, but I wouldn't actively shop him. Not great on defense. Not particularly fast. They do need a couple of bats like his mixed into the lineup with the power bats. Gets on base and keeps innings going.
3B: Donaldson. Not much to say here.
SS: Polanco - This year was disappointing to be sure, but I'm not ready to give up on him.
Buxton - Any plan that doesn't include him is just plain stupid
Max - same as Polanco. He regressed this year, but there is no reason to give up on him
Eddie - I have a feeling that he will be shopped. I have gone back and forth on trading him. It could turn into a careful what you wish for scenario. Better get quality if you move him.
Kirilloff / Larnach: Their bats are ready. Time to make room for them.
DH: BRING BACK CRUZ! AN ABSOLUTE MUST!!!
Lewis - Can replace Marwin as the super utility
Gordon - Can replace Ehire.com as the light hitting utility
Bye bye - Cave, Turtle, Avila, Ehire, Marwin
Sweeney for Manager
The Curse of Mauer is gone!
