    This. If they're intent on giving Furcal the starting job without a competition, that is...

    I guess folks like the move because it's a 1-year deal, with the opportunity Furcal bounces back to being at least average.. An average Furcal is a lot better than Dietrich & Solano.. I guess

    Interesting signing. Hopefully he doesn't go all Pokey Reese on us.

    I'm kinda with you but not a bad gamble. It is like a small stepup from Polanco part 2

    Playoff guys as in guys with playoff experience. I don't bentancourt has ever been there,

    Playoff guys play on good teams, that's why they're playoff guys. Furcal is a playoff guy much like Juan Pierre and Placido Polanco were playoff guys...

    3.5 million low risk, good clubhouse guy like Furcal. A solid signing. Just need a 3B now and our starting lineup is done.
  9. I like this move. I would not be surprised to see them move Dietrich to third and obviously want Furcal at second because of his arm issues.

    I think he still has something left in the tank.

    I did a double take upon reading that headline.

    True but te team is growing experience. To think that not even our regulars before these 2 played the. Season with marlins last season

    The offense still stinks.

    Why does everyone keep wondering who will be playing third base? It sure as hell won't be Solano.
  14. Mr. Baller

    Mr. Baller Muckdog

    That it does. Although Ozuna being in the lineup every day and the addition of Salty should help it out a bit. Hopefully we get somebody with decent pop to fill out the lineup at 3B.

    Probably because there's no one in the organization capable of playing it short-term.

    Guys...Guys.....Ed Lucas has 3b on lock.

    I like this signing quite a bit especially if he has recovered from the TJ surgery

    Yup Moran is a good year away at least. Need to sign somebody or stuck with the Dietrich/Solano platoon of goodness

    Seems like the organization disagrees with you. Michael Hill himself, just yesterday, said he envisioned Dietrich as a likely candidate to play third base next year. Considering he was originally a SS, and is a power bat, I am not surprised.

    No need for a platoon, Dietrich seems to hit lefties OK.
