  1. Where would Escobar start? He’d have to take time away from Brent Morel, Gordon Beckham, or Alexei Ramirez.

  2. interesting comments as always, marc.

    what are your thoughts on gordon beckham? do you think his quick path to the show ultimately hurt his development?

  3. Nate Jones is most definitely a righty.

  4. It will be very interesting seeing how a right handed pitcher performs as a LOOGY. Hulet’s thinkin outside the box. That’s gonna make for a tough edit.

  5. The next market inefficiency

  6. I would also expect a callup for Nestor Molina at some point during the season.

  7. I love the youth infusion, I think they’ll be much better than expected. Viciedo scares the hell out of me in left field though, I am not sure he’ll last the entire season there. I think his defensive woes will end up canceling out his offensive production. I’d rather them take the hit in the offense and use Jordan Danks in left field personally.

  8. I believe you meant that there are dark clouds over New Comiskey Park. Unfamiliar with this “US Cellular” of which you speak.

    Looking forward to De Aza and Viciedo, and hopefully a bigger role for Lillibridge. Not too optimistic for Morel to repeat his September, but I think a core of undervalued AJ + Alexei + Paulie + any-sort-of-bounce-back Rios and Dunn could do better than expected. Detroit is intimidating, but its not as if the rest of the division is that scary, and if Sale does well the team will have a very respectable rotation.

    That said, if the season is spent at the ASB they need to blow up the team so that I’ll have something to watch in 2015, cos the next few seasons won’t be pretty.

  9. And even though two of those three have offensive issues, their bats seem better than Escobar. Not leaving him in the minors to work on his hitting seems odd.

  10. Who are these guys? Where’s Fox and Aparicio?

  11. Take a good look at Minnesota, Cleveland and K.C. and tell me why this team shouldn’t finish in second this year.
