    I understand that. I'm just wondering who's actually better defensively as a SS...I'd always heard that Chapman would have been a good defensive SS (like a Machado). Is Espinal legit defensively at SS?

    No but if the idea is to give guys DH rest at regular intervals, put Bo at DH every 2 Ryu start or whatever, given the high percentage of Ryu grounders to left side. This is assuming Espinal is the better SS

    Espinal actually graded as a better 3B than Chapman last year. Obviously defensive stats are a bit less black and white than pitching/batting stats, and Espinal also played less than half the innings at 3B so the sample size is smaller, but he's a VERY good defender (though definitely not better than Chapman, despite the stats...)

    In regards to the bullpen, how much do you value having the 8th man having options to work the AAA-Mlb shuffle?
    Not a lot of room to work with as bp is capped at 8

    1-7:
    Romano
    Mayza
    Garcia
    Cimber
    Richards
    Stripling
    Merryweather (if healthy wont be optioned)

    Borucki(no options)/Phelps(options?), new lefty we signed (options)/Pearson(wont be optioned if healthy), FA/trade(wont be optioned)

    Vasquez is a really interesting sign, and the fact that he's got an option improves that deal a lot. I think there's a good chance he breaks camp w/ the team though.

    Where is expected payroll at the moment?
    Adding chapman's expected salary would put them right around 162 million.

    Yes I took it as the kiss of death to borucki unless he rips it up in camp

    We thinking Kirk catches 60 and dh 60 as roster is constructed? (Without moreno coming up)

    Remaining 100g as dh:

    Springer 40
    Teo 10
    Lgj 10
    Vlad 10
    Bo 10
    Biggio (if bounce back) 10
    Chapman 10

    Gives grichuk about 300Ab

    I mean would you assume this is the plan going into the season as of now, knowing injuries are going to ultimately make a big difference.

    We could use another bankable RP, but at this stage I'd be tempted to just put Pearson in the BP and let him work on his stuff with Pete and the major league coaches. You can try and stretch him out after that if you think its a possibility.

    I don't really think you need to give Biggio DH reps, even if he bounces back. Unless there's some serious need to get both he and Espinal into a game at the same time, but I can't see that happening.

    Of course, we do have Chuckles, so you never know what that dude will do...

    Kinda what I was thinking. Baseball is a long season and at least 10 times a year you say wtf is he dhing?
    If biggio is rocking a 360 obp with his base running skills while espinal is holding his own with the stick, 10g wouldnt surprise me.

    I think 2 inning outings 2x a week would work for me for Pearson. Come in about 100 ip for regular season
