    Who is expecting him to be flipped?

    I think it's obvious that they will try to trade him for profit at the trade deadline. That's different though.

    Think the other Josh (Bell) will always be this bad at D. Pirates are likely to move someone this off season.

    He had the second worst UZR in the league iirc. Even Bautista was a better defender. No thanks to JD Martinez.

    I still think they move Cutch. Wait for the hullabaloo to die down, teams will miss on targets, he'll look more attractive.

    JD Martinez broke his elbow running into the outfield wall in June.

    I wonder if that incident (associated fear) significantly impacted his defense in the second half.

    At this point let see what Pompey has in him, platoon Zeke/Upton, and July 1st we can start talking about what JD will bring at the trade deadline and whether or not Rogers learned a lesson not to fuck around after setting attendance and tv records.

    Exactly. Someone will pay their price.

    Then they have that Austin Meadows fellow that they'd like to unleash on the league.

    While that narrative is a possible explanation for why 2016 was by far his worst defensive season, with the exception of 2015 (still was a negative defender, mind you), he's always been pretty pitiful.

    Valbuena to 1B, with Pearce in LF is very appealing to me.

    How is this a better option than signing Bautista on a one or two year deal

    Guy has a 115 wRC+ over the last three years, and given that he plays an acceptable 3B, would probably grade out as plus at 1B. That's a good, versatile player, and he's expected to make like 2/20.
