    Ahh gotcha. Misunderstood you.

    Obviously someone like Moss is preferable, but seems unlikely to happen. If you're calling up one of Pompey/Ramirez/Gurriel I'm choosing Pompey.
    If he looks good in ST I'd give Pompey a solid 6 week stint in the majors to start the season

    I just lack confidence that he'll stick

    As of today I'd just roll with Upton/Carerra and force Pompey to hit his way up.

    Unlikely but he could be a September call up.

    Especially as Gibbons won't want to use him.

    Wow

    You know what - These days the AL is pretty beast at the 2B position

    Pedroia
    Cano
    Altuve
    Travis
    Kinsler
    Odor
    Kipnis
    Dozier

    That's a pretty decent number of good hitting 2B at the moment. About half of the AL has a 2B who hits better than league average. That used to seem more rare.

    Even Pillar was a much better AAA hitter than that

    Meh
    Jose Ramirez and Jonathan Villar are worse hitters in the MiLB

    Can he make it while still a teenager? Maybe not, but it'd be fun to see.

    I've been saying this all offseason. Nothing they were doing or saying was indicating that they were going to get another OF. It's kind of infuriating too because it's such an easy way to upgrade the team. I guess they just don't have the resources anymore or they are comfortable with what they've got compared to what's on the market.

    I'm still hopeful one of two things happens as it appears that a trade for Puig or someone big like that is a pipe dream. (1) They sign Moss to a Colby Rasmus type deal or (2) Pompey shows up to ST and impresses and wins the job and puts up 1.5+ WAR.

    I guess my one other hope which seems like a longshot is that Upton's tenure with the Jays last year was just a blip on his road to being a useful player again as he put up 3 WAR in roughly 180 games as a Padre. The projections hate him but it's not unfathomable that he could put up 1.5 WAR.

    Nope. Hasn't had them for awhile actually.
