It hasn’t been a mess because Nick left. It’s been a mess because the organization was garbage at doing things smartly.
BtW, in the 6 seasons since he has been gone, Nick has been worth 5.8 WAR. If that isn’t production you can replace, you have no business having a job in baseball.
But yet you seem to be sold that Santander is the future...despite his career telling you otherwise.
That’s the logic that makes no sense. A guy who hasn’t even played 100 games in any season is “part of the future”. I don’t get that at all.
Exactly right. Wildcard is shocked that Mountcastle is the LFer this year, despite every single thing over the past year or so saying the Os view him as a LFer the time being. Maybe not for the long term but they certainly feel that way now and if he shows well there, they may end up keeping him there.
Either way, it’s certainly something WC is manufacturing in his mind.
