    Paxton and Happ for the Yankees and Richard is listed for the first games vs the Blue Jays.

    Will Davis sit all three games in favor on Mancini at 1B with Nunez  DHing because of his sore arm?

    Will Alberto start at 3B over Ruiz?

    Will Jackson play CF over Mullins?

    Why not Rickard CF and Jackson RF?

    If Davis manages to pull off a .750 OPS then yeah he isn’t going anywhere.  

    I’m predicting it’s more likely his OPS is below .650 and any bounce back from last year is minimal at best.

    It's baseball I never predict.

    Last year any player in baseball and hundreds more in the minor leagues could have been more productive than Davis. The bar is that low right now.

    But the thread is what if Davis hit like he did in ST. That would be a .750 OPS with 30 HR and 70 RBI. I doubt he will but's that's not the question.

    That's not the choice.

    The choice is paying Davis $92 million and having the roster spot, or paying Davis $92 million and not having the roster spot.

    The point is if Davis is at all productive you aren't eating the entire 23 M. Until his roster spot can be used by someone more productive why release him?

    If he has a 50 home run season and hits .260 that would provide value as it give us something to be interested in.  Him providing 1 WAR is useless to this team. 

    Is the extra roster spot worth eating 92 M?

    You don’t lose $8 mm less.    Just because you’d theoretically pay $8 mm for a 1 WAR player doesn’t mean Davis is putting $8 mm in our pockets.   

    From a psychological point of view, I’d rather watch .750 Davis than .539 Davis.    One is very frustrating to watch, the other is unbearable to watch.   

    I look at it like I am paying Davis 23M and getting 8M in production

    One more win isn't worth anything to this years team. So they win 49 instead of 48.  I will take a .750 OPS if it comes with a .240 average.  If he is hitting .180 and has a .750 OPS I will pass. 

    You miss the point not surprisingly. You lose 23 M if you cut him and gain a roster spot that is unlikely to be worth much this season. If you keep him you lose 8M less and get maybe league average production.

    Possible for Davis, or for anyone?

    Rob Deer had a .179/.314/.386 season.   Adam Dunn has a .204/.333/.468 season.   Chris Carter had a .199/.307/.423 season.   So I think it’s theoretically possible to have a line like .189/.318/.432 even over a full year.   Do I think Davis will do that?   No, not really.    

    Joe Mauer last year: 

    .282 .351 .379

    This is partly why I asked the question.    On the one hand, if he’s going to be on the team, this would constitute pretty significant improvement.    On the other hand, it’s still probably very close to replacement level and doesn’t really move the needle for the team, but probably would be enough where they’d keep him rather than cutting the cord.    So that could be a bad thing.  

    A .750 OPS with slightly improved defense should bring him in at about 1 WAR, so that's worth 8M more than if you release him.

    Trumbo, Sisco and when he comes up, Mountcastle.

    so that’s 3-4 on the 25-man, and isn’t that 3-4 too many? One, we can live with. But not a Squad.

    Trumbo is strictly DH and Mountcastle isn't on the 25 man. Sisco cant be that bad iF they are sticking with him.

    You completely Misunderstood me. I said we have “too many guys who can hit but can’t defend.” We don’t need another player who is useless on Defense.


    Besides Nunez and Mancini who are those guys?

    Then I doubt he wastes his time.

    I think he'll acquire assets that have more future value for this franchise than what is in house, almost regardless of position. That might be consistent with what you're saying, but I really don't think he'll take most waiver claims just to help much this year.

    Mo doubt but we are talking about the OD lineup.

    I wonder if Elias is thinking this way even a little bit. Duquette would, but I doubt Elias is.

    I think he's looking at the waiver wire only to find a guy that he at least has a chance to get some real future value out of (either trade potential or untapped physical upside). I don't think he cares much to find a platoon RFer to help us get from 50 to 52 wins. 

    The RF position is temporary, we have our long term solution in Diaz/Hays. We aren't finding anything more than stop gaps on the waiver wire and we already have plenty of those.

    Get ready to strike some fear into our opponents:

    1. Mullins CF

    2. Rickard RF

    3. Villar 2B

    4. Mancini LF

    5. Davis 1B

    6. Nunez DH

    7. Ruiz 3B

    8. Sisco C

    9. Martin SS

    Smith will be in RF v Tanaka. Is Trumbo back on the DL? Otherwise he's the DH
