When winter comes, can spring training be far behind…

Votto.  One of the games best players. 2nd base–Phillips.  1 solid .280 hitter and defensively, I’ll take him over anyone in baseball. Shortstop–Cozart. Solid defensively and before he was hurt last year, he was having an all-star quality season. 3rd base–Suarez. Looked good last year with some power numbers.  Can he replace Frazier? Catcher–(1a) Mesoraco is a big question mark. In a position that takes a pounding on the legs, knees, and ankles, can he stay healthy. Catcher–(2a) Barhart.  Solid defensively.  Can he hit a little bit? Outfield–Bruce–If he is still here, can he gain some consistency at the plate.  30+ homers and an average over .260 would be sweet. Hamilton–run Billy run!  But you can’t steal first so he’s got to improve a lot at the plate. And in left field?  Hope.  Hope they can find someone and please…no platoon systems.  Platoons means you have two guys not good enough to play every day. Pitching—Ah…who has a clue.  If Homer can come back and be good, that would help. IF a diaper dandy (or 2 or 3) develops, that would be even better.  And the bullpen?  JJ Hover or Aroldis.  I’m not feeling to good there but if the names above don’t perform, it won’t matter because there won’t be any saves to blow. Have faith and maybe it will be another wire-to-wire year.  Unfortunately, the wire-to-wire more likely will be for last place.]]>
