What if Mancini/Santander/Núñez are actually this good?

Chris Davis is not helped by the juiced balls. 

Is that where they inject the stuff now?

Citing RBI stats to prove your point... in 2019 that is worth at least 5 demerits.

Ahh but I wasn't citing RBIs, I was citing the lack of a RBI.

Caleb tried that method, but it didn't work out the way he had hoped.

Two words: juiced ball. Christian fricking Walker has 19 homeruns. Not to totally dismiss what these guys are doing, but you have to take into consideration how wonky this season is shaping up.

This.  Let's see if they can all sustain it, but I have my doubts that all 3 can.  Mancini I think is a good hitter, but not sold on Nunez.  Santander is TBD.

But-- we still need two good catchers. Sisco is more of the question mark, or a third option.

Yes.

I like Santander more and more. He hits he defends, he runs ok, what more does one want?

maybe we can trade him back to Cleveland

C'mon, Can, you're better than that--You know that relies on the same faulty logic.

Geez no one is getting my humor today.

Seriously I'm all for discounting rbis but that shouldn't preclude me from mentioning a pretty historically poor offensive season in shorthand fashion.

The AC (Analytically Correct) shorthand would have been Caleb "13 OPS+" Joseph. That's also pretty historically poor!

Mancini .280/.339/.534

Santander .304/.344/.509

Nunez .256/.326/.521

That is really a pretty nice 2/3/4.    Mancini and Núñez have been doing it pretty much all year.    Santander has kind of come out of nowhere, though he looked like he had the potential for this if things went right when we chose him in the Rule 5 draft.    

If this turned out to be about the norm for those three, that would be a decent offensive core to build around.   Santander has shown himself to be a decent defender, too.

DD has to be smiling somewhere. Nunez was a waiver claim. Santander was a rule 5 guy. Mancini was a 6th rd pick.

Mancini was an 8th round pick.  Also, many of the draft picks under DD's regime are having good/breakout years.  Coincidence or maybe a lot of the problem was in development/coaching?

We’re also not promoting anyone. I’m not trying to be a wet blanket, but that matters. I’m not trying to derail this into Elias vs DD. I was just making a joke about DD.

Back go to OP,

I think we have the beginnings of a solid core. Even when you compare it to other teams’ lineups. As of right now, just looking at the lineup, we’re probably in the average category. With that being said, maybe we shouldn’t blow this up even further. Why blow up an average lineup, with potential, just to have a chance at it being slightly better in 2022?  

Add a guy like Tony Kemp for 3rd. Call up Hays and Mountcastle in September. Maybe work on a team friendly 2 year deal with Villar. AR might be ready on June 1st next year. Why play hold back a Catcher?  

At some point we need to find out what we have with everyone. Maybe it doesn’t make sense to tear this down any further.

I think you're getting carried away.  We might be a pitching staff away from being an average/decent team.  The idea is to build for something bigger.  Your going right back to Peter Angelo's mode.

What about Hanser Alberto?

I don’t think his style of play, the .300/.300/.300 slash line, will last long. But that’s just my opinion.
