Nimmo CF
ACab 2B (geez, is this really necessary?)
Scooter RF
Yo LF (flipping these two now)
Flo 3B
DSmith 1B
AmRo SS
KPlaw C
G-sell P


Terry is apparently still going to give deference to Cabrera till the day he gets traded even tho Cheech should be starting at 2B every day.

And I see the Reynolds experiment at 3B lasted a whole 1 game...

I love Wilmer but he's so bad at 3B. I dunno why we can't have him at 2B and As-Cab at 3B at least until a trade happens.

The only thing I can come up with is that ACab whined a bit more about playing 3B...?

Or they really want to see if Wilmer can settle down there and be a full-time guy in 2018.

They probably feel he's "good enough" at 2B, but finding a 3B-man is harder. Cheech, TJR, and others (Walker?) can play 2B next year.

Maybe he'll look better with consistent work at one position, but he looks worse to me at 3B than he did at SS.

This. 2B is the best hope for Wilmer, 2B or 1B the only hopes. 3B no can do unfortunately.

Dare I say it that Nimmo doesn't look as awful as some insist that he is. OK, awful is too strong but you get the point.

How would we know? We are only seeing more of him now since Terry had his toys taken away from him....

Nimmo definitely has the makeup and offensive mindset to stick long term. Whether it's with us or someone else.

Nimmo is a Major Leaguer but at what capacity? Might just be a career bench guy. Certainly needs to show some more pop.
