Because he can't hit??

 

Right. But he is going to play. I’d rather hav him DH than play at first.

Lol. I hear you. But....He is a much better first baseman than he is a hitter, and that isn't saying much.

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?

I would not be surprised if this happens.

Making sure is comfortable there and deploying the best defensive alignment are two different things.

Sure, I am not making the prediction, just explaining the rationale of the prediction. As stated earlier, he could also replace Smith with Mullins staying in CF.

I don't think Davis will sit all 3, but in reality if they want to try and win he should...

If it was about winning, he wouldn't be on the team. I think he sits some, but ultimately plays most days, even against lefties, until the org starts to hit a breaking point.

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
