Too soon to say
Separating who is responsible for what in a front office is more difficult than ever before.
INcreasingly, we're going to have to evaluate front offices as a whole

Hector Olivera hitting a bunch of singles means he's going to hit enough to stick in left field, right? Right?

How good can Hanley be at 1B if he fields the position decently and hits the ball? Can he be a 3 WAR player?
Dan Szymborski
12:05
Maybe, but he has to hit better

Well, Kershaw

Yes

As a Reds fan, okay to get hopes up by Peraza's spring performance?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
Geez guys, this isn't even getting excited about springg performance. This is now getting excited about a percentage of spring performance.

Do you think Orlando Arcia and JP Crawford are going to break out big and be on the same level as guys like Carlos Correa/Francisco Lindor and Corey Seager?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
I like both, but Correa level is tough. It's ridiculous how many awesome young shrotstops we have now
Josh

What is a reasonable innings expectation for Jesse Hahn and Drew Smyly? Both are high on the possible Tommy John list.
Dan Szymborski
12:10
Given the associated risks 140-150

Dan Szymborski
12:10
I think it is

Assume no.

Is Kershaw a little underwhelming for reigning best pitcher in baseball, or did Johnson/Maddux/Clemens set that bar too high? I suppose it could be both or neither.
Dan Szymborski
12:12
YOu sound like a very greedy person.

Odds that Turner is starting for the Nats before June?

Taylor Motter is off to a good start this spring. Do you like his chances of starting the season in Tampa?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
If the Rays like him enough to start him off in the majors, they like him enough to not start him off in the majors and get the extra year.

As a Cubs fan, I can tell you Wrigley does NOT have very good ballpark food. What park does have the best?
