"We need to get better" - Mike Hill


Recommended Posts

Because he becomes a switch hitting better Marwin if he can handle CF. He'd be tremendous in that role, especially since CF has lower depth with Monte the only viable longterm option right now and he is very volatile

 

So you have no idea if he can actually handle the position above replacement level. It's one thing to hope and pray that he can fill a position, but anything beyond that is eh.

 

CF is one of your most important defensive positions, to throw someone out there that has never really played the position is putting your pitchers in a real bad spot. With as much youth as the Marlins staff has, its one of the last things you really need to be doing!

You need to delay his service time to past Super 2 status. That's mid June. He was also hurt for part of last year. Take some reps in AAA and strike out less.

 

I hate that mindset so fucking much.

 

He wont be a free agent til he is age 30 as it is. Does that extra year really matter if he is going to be 31 then as opposed to 30?

But you take the gamble as if he's even OK there, you've created a massive trade asset or you keep him.

 

Of course he has to hit though

You gotta play the game. An extra year of service time becomes a major asset if the player works out.

 

They can never buy out Monte and take him year to year through his prime. That's amazing. Look at George Springer's value to the Astros.

The team is going to suck, might as well experiment.

And if he is a disaster defensively you've fucked your entire pitching staff. So there is that as well.

The bigger question is how has his trash can game been for the Astros? Thats almost as important as what he does on the field.

Maybe to make sure the writer be the member here or not, you know what I mean.

If we have a writer for a Mets blog here, I'd be surprised. Either way, this one is not an ok mistake to make. It just shows no research. Writer could have spent 5 seconds confirming it.
