You should be sad you listen to Chris Russo.

I'll cheerfully go over for the Indian all stars. Tito's helping pick the team, and managers lovelovelove rewarding their guys in that regard.

The manager's influence has been wildly reduced.
They only get to pick a few players now.

Miggy wasn't a 'good young first baseman' either. A couple of young, good-hitting outfielders/third basemen/catchers etc. will find themselves starring at first in due time.

Sure, but there aren't really many great young hitters who also suck at fielding right now. Sano is probably the closest, but his K% makes it unlikely he ever turns into Miggy. Maybe Stanton ends up at 1B if his knees keep hurting.
Schwarber I guess fits.
Good Young 1b

Wil Myers is good and young, right?
Dave Cameron

He's fine.
Arenado v Bryant
12:58
Isnt Arenado's defense another plus for him in a debate against Bryant? Bryant is no slouch but I was under the impression that Arenado is an elite defender.
Dave Cameron
12:58
Arenado is a better defender than Bryant, but the defensive gap is nowhere near as large as the offensive gap.
Good Young 1b

Giving up on AJ Reed?
Dave Cameron

As a high-end player? Yes.
Alright, off to finish my Kiermaier post.
Thanks for hanging out everyone.
