Seems so. And Aoki even looks like a decent option as a 5th OFer.

And given that catcher and SS are at least nominally set, that leaves "only" 1B, 2B, 3B and the pitching to work on.

I love that Nimmo and Lagares are playing so well. I'd rather see them take center than signing Cain.

I think they can count on Flores to play 2B but they seem hell-bent on making Flores a third baseman. Might also be a guy you want to play 1B against LH pitching more than Smith.

3B is looking like the easiest position to make an impact on this team and through free agency. Really need to consider Mike Moustakas.

An infield of Smith-Flores-Moustakas-Rosario with Rivera and Cabrera might not be the worst thing.

I'd hate to lose a second rounder in such a deep draft, especially in the middle of a transition within our system that has left it on the light side. I'd rather sign Reyes or Cabrera to play it, give Evans a long look, do what you have to do to grind it out til midseason. If the pitching stayed healthy and you are competing then use the buyers market that raked us over the coals in 2017.

I don't hate that OF but they'll need to sign a guy with major league experience to a minor league deal as a backup option. There's a lot of risk in those 5, both injury risk and regression risk.

But in theory, if Catcher and OF are set, more money for the Wilpons.


Fixed that for you.

That's a tough call on Moustakas, cause Cabrera is a pretty big step down, but I also would hate to lose the pick.

Yu Darvish? Is that a crazy idea given how unpredictable our pitching was this year?

Bring back Neil Walker who might want to play 2nd and leave us without a good 3rd base option.

Bring back Walker & Cabrera? Much as I hate to say it, I think this might be their option. Walker could be their biggest signing this off-season. I think they need to add a starting pitcher too.

Probably won't be a great off season, but I'm just guessing. Maybe Sandy has some tricks up his sleeve.

Great game for Nimmo. Free Cecchini!

Reyes has OPSed .773 in the second half vs .655 in the first. Cabrera is .771 vs .736. And then Neil was about .780 for us and (not shocking) is a .910 since joining Milwaukee.

You gotta like the upgrade Moose would offer, especially like the fact he has had pretry even first and second halves. But the difference between a guy like Asdrubal and Moose isn't why we aren't in the playoff hunt this year. Nor do I think it would be the reason next year.

Nimmo and Montero both finding their anticipated success would be just about the best thing we could ask for going down the stretch. Although I feel like with Nimmo karma owes us for taking conforto away

Mark Simon seems to agree.

If Brandon Nimmo and Nori Aoki are the 4th and 5th outfielders next yr (with 1 in a platoon w/ healthy Lagares?), might be a decent combo

They are giving Nimmo burn, if Cecchini doesn't get "significant" burn over the final few weeks I would assume he's not in their plans going forward.

And you think they really have a plan going forward..? Sorry, but I think this is just some crude form of "next man up." I mean, if not for a couple of injuries, Nimmo wouldn't be playing right now. So while what you're saying is logical, the facts on the ground don't really jive there. Cheech will prob see some action now that Flo is done and ACab is likely out thru the w/e. And if Cheech doesn't "show something" in that limited opening, he'll continue to be labelled/considered as a fringe guy into next year just as Nimmo would have been.

Face it... there is no "plan" to audition these young players. Players seeing daylight now are due to attrition.
