I think this changes the winter plans somewhat, from rolling with the OF that is here to probably adding someone on a 1 year deal.

I would hope they were never going to roll with the current group of OFs.

Yeah, I'm talking about the third OF spot.

And that data includes the contributions of Bruce and Granderson. Need to replace them (with one guy, not two).

and with Yo missing 6 weeks of the season. I just think that people are overstating the OF need...or were. Now it seems more a legit need since it may not be fair to count on Scooter for a big season or any season.

I just think beyond Céspedes and Conforto, all you have is two injury prone fourth outfielders.

Not really, he's not worth $18M.

I was willing to ride with that (knowing they already need to address prob 2 IF spots) with maybe adding a fringier guy like a Daniel Nava. Now they will probably have to add someone a bit more up the scale. Jay Bruce prob comes back into the pix as a candidate if the price is right... 3/45? Not even sure if they are willing to commit that much.

If you'd do 3/45 on Bruce you wouldn't have gone 1/18 if necessary?

I don't see how you're more confident in Nimmo/Lagares than in Flores. I think they need to add one infielder and one outfielder.

I know all of Flo's flaws - he has negative secondaries - and at this point, unless a breakout occurs, there's no need to overstate his offensive contribution. I don't go along with this FO's disdain for defense. I like him as a fallback at 1B, tho I'm not sure they can afford that luxury.

otoh, I'd be interested to see what Lagares/Nimmo could do if given a shot... certainly before writing them off.
