    2016 WISH LIST

    Post by Guest on Mon Oct 05, 2015 5:59 pm

    LF - Yoenis Cespedes
    RF - Jason Heyward
    3B - Juan Uribe (Unless they can sucker somebody in a trade of Micah Johnson and Trayce Thompson);
    SS - Pick up Ramirez option
    SP - Johnny Cueto; which means Samardzija walks.




    Hopefully Cueto will be the Drysdale to Chris Sale's Koufax that Samardzija was suppose to be


    Cespedes and Heyward not only give them instant offense, but a solid defensive OF.  Cespedes poor fielding sabermetrics is due to teams insisting he play CF.  When left alone in LF he is a defensive asset.


    With Juan Uribe as the perfect stop gap at 3B, the Sox would hopefully just be below average offensively at C, 2B, SS.  But those are historically glove positions anyway.  Just need the gloves to show up in 2016


    Cabrera and LaRouche can platoon at DH.


    Hahn's work is now done.  Just need Reinsdorf to open up the checkbook


    Then get ready to take our city back and to banish Bel from the SFOD board

    My shorter list of preferences.  (Sad to say no infielders impressed me in the list I saw.)

    C Wieters or Avila

    OF Heyward, Cespedes or Alex Gordon (cheap sleeper Drew Stubbs, not sure what happened to him)

    SP's Brett Anderson, Beachy, Cueto, Fister, Happ, Zimmermann

    RPs Bastardo, Blanton, Cahill, Shawn Kelley, Soria,

    I wanted Minnie Minoso and Billy Pierce, but they died.

    I said it at the start of this year and I'll repeat myself. If there is not a catching upgrade, fuck every other plan. Enter 2016 with Flowers and Soto, and I'll see you here next year talking about 2017. Unfortunately, I have little faith in anyone coming from the NL and making an impact, heyward, Zimmerman or cueto, who hasn't been exactly Drysdale over the past month once the AL figured him out.
