Who said anything about trading Means?

Best non-pitcher then...

I hope Means can continue to dominate. I'd be happy if he can be.a No. 3-4 type for the next five years or more.

LF:  Mountcastle (Dwight Smith, Jr may start the season here)
CF:  Hays
RF:  Santander
4th OF:  Smith, Jr... maybe? Ugh  

IMHO, DJ Stewart, barring notable defensive improvement, should not see the outfield.

Mountcastle (someone needs a nickname :P ... 'Mount' maybe? ) will likely see time at 1B as well.

Our choices at this juncture seem quite limited.  However if Hays and Santander continue to perform well, and Mountcastle can be decent defensively while hitting enough to justify his spot, then this OF may be pretty solid.  

Thoughts?

Two suggestions: the Mounty or the rook.

Then extend him when it's time. I don't think he will cost as much as Manny.

I'd like to see Mountcastle in left, Mancini at first and Nunez at DH with Stewart in Norfolk or somewhere else.

This is about where I am as well.   Another possibility is Mountcastle and Mancini split time 1B and DH, with Stewart getting one more shot in LF and Nunez getting a shot at 3B.  There are questions about whether Mountcastle has the arm even for LF.  

If it comes down to Nunez or Mountcastle at DH, I'd rather see Mountcastle.   More upside with the bat.

No there aren't.  There are questions if he can play left field adequately at the MLB level.
