If they have options then sure I would like reed and Ty on the team. And by May if something doesn't pan out then have one of the other 2 come up. I assume bogusevic and dobbs are guaranteed. Not too fond of dobbs.

Dobbs doesn't have any options left. We don't need Wigginton, as our right handed compliment to Dobbs is Jeff Baker (guaranteed). Johnson COULD make it as a right handed compliment to Bogusevic, or one could make it over the other. At that point, the bench is:

 

Dobbs, Baker, Johnson, Bogusevic, Mathis

 

Dobbs, Baker, Mathis all guarantees.

 

Bogusevic may end up making it because he's a lefty and an outfielder, so that leaves Johnson's spot. Baker can also play the outfield (not well, but he can). So,

 

Dobbs, Baker, Bogusevic, Mathis, and I'd have to guess Lucas or Solano rounds out the bench.

Yep, and he's also one of the competitors this year for the $100! Is that still a thing?

He might be as good as Zack Cox soon if he keeps this up.

 

How's Cox's spring going by the way? I haven't checked lately.

Although how someone does at the plate and/or how many ABs he has figures into it, alot more goes into the final decision of whether or not someone makes the team. Johnson is most likely a long shot with us, but he is also "interviewing" for other clubs right now. "Well educated" people should understand this and at the least give the guy kudos for giving it his all.

First of all, Johnson is highly expendable talent. Secondly, virtually all players not guaranteed a roster spot "give it their all" in this situation. To suggest somehow that a 3 for 9 statline is a sign of Johnson giving more than another player is both premature and idiotic.

-Wild Card starts an irrelevant thread

-penguino points out the fact that it's irrelevant

-BroncoBob comes in and decides to be a contrarian for no reason

-Spike mentions how much Donovan Solano sucks even though it didn't really have much to do with what was being said

 

This thread belongs in the mb.com HOF.
