That’d be like concluding Diaz can’t be your closer moving forward so you install Tim Peterson in that spot.
Lmao it's nothing like that. Jesus.
Of course it is. Rosario was the number 1 prospect in baseball. You're talking about switching his position for a guy who is a minor league performer with questionable tools and MLB ability for some short term de minimis gain on defense.
If and when there is a viable SS alternative, you can have this discussion. But just like Mickey's "We may have to move Diaz out of the closer's spot" from a week or so ago - for who!? What does that do?
For the record, I was never a Rosario fan as a prospect, absolutely advocated for trading him this winter, and i actually have pumped Guillorme as a decent piece of org depth. But I can't sit here and see a suggestion that we move Rosario off SS and give Guillorme a run as anything more than rearranging deck chairs. The fact that Guillorme isn't a bad AAA player is a good thing, but there are more choices than just "bad in AAA" and "will translate to MLB".
