Yooooooooo welcome to the chats and what not
Predictions?? I think the Phils will go to the playoffs
Stutes is on the roster...he didn't really "take anyone's place" although Contreras is on the dl
I think Pierre is your guy more than half the time but Charlie has said there will be lots of mixing and matching...I think Vic will play there when Pierre's out...no one else is suited there except Jimmy who is locked in the 3-hole...
Charlie may like the big lumber but let's look at what he's got on his roster...it just isn't there unless J-roll, wigginton, vic and mayberry decide to each hit 20...how many phils do you think can even get to 30 homeruns this year?
Excellent question...my standout star for the season in j-roll...
Zach i can see him getting to 30 homeruns...but that's about it...he can't get caught up in trying to replace howard or utley's impact...he has to simply do him
Justin...i'm echoing your sentiments all day long
yes Jon H especially if he can get his obp up out of the 8-hole with the pitcher protecting him...we're aways away from that i think unless pierre really falters
Philip...let him get healthy...his numbers were still upper echelon compared to his position around the nl
I got John Mayberry if he's truly in that role...otherwise gimme Thome
Kendrick can be the 5th starter...i'd think that Ruben would make a move though if an ace goes down...
Philip i'm with you on the time for Howard to be whole...but even at 75-80% he's an upgrade at first base and a real threat at the plate
Frank...maybe if they still had Aramis Ramirez and Jose Bautista?
