Your first part is all "he's wasn't that great playing every day in the minors" and your second part is "he can't be great without playing every day". Which is it? Is he one step away from greatness or not?
It's okay to have a role as a weak side platoon. He may not have great career OPS but against lefties he does. Fortunately for him, teams need players to hit lefties, and plenty of teams will carry those niche players.
Tavares- back to BOS
Santander- DL 60 day???
Thats pretty good depth and ST comp for the 4th/5th OF spots. Oh and I think Jones will be happy with the late inning OF defense.
I would say B. There have been some solid moves such as the Smith, Castillo and Bourn signings. Dan could have paid more for Trumbo, but patience paid off this time. There wasn't really a big name/sexy addition, but I believe it's been a solid offseason.
It was a great game... but honestly gets overshadowed by the fact that it was probably the third most exciting game in that series, haha. Game 2, obviously, is legendary. But Game 3 in Detroit was amazing, too. Bud Norris out-dueling David Price? Nellie Cruz further continuing to have a flair for the dramatic? And then Britton shutting it down.
