Nunez DFA

Recommended Posts

He originally looked like me might become an average defensive 3B.   Unfortunately, he regressed in that area the last two years and didn't look very good at 1B either.   That and a 2M salary as a DH did him in.    This is good news for D.J. Stewart who looks to have a shot at the DH job.

With Mountcastle, Mancini and Davis on the roster, Nunez was an expensive and unnecessary player.

How ironic!

They learned the lesson Trumbo taught. Home runs don’t compensate for horrible defense. And they had too many DH guys, so he was odd man out. Now Mancini is 1B(?) and MC is LF and Stewart is RF?

Be still my heart...

By mid-season, Santander, Hays, and Diaz in the OF, Mountcastle at 1B, and Mancini DH (or vice versa).

Stupid move 

Too many 1B/DH types.    I was sort of surprised, but I don’t think it matters much at all.

Yes, the position is plentiful but that doesn’t mean you dump production for nothing.

That’s my hope as well. That will be a good OF. Mullins as 4OF is good too, but it leaves Stewart as odd man out. I’m assuming Mancini/Mountcastle will rotate between 1B/DH, and then we need a good 3B, assuming Sanchez is at 2B, and then we might have a worthwhile team...
