I haven't done it yet so I'm not sure but probably around a half dozen.

What would you say Alex Verdugo's ceiling is? I see regular all-star
Eric A Longenhagen
1:32
That's probably the ceiling. I have a 55 FV on him, think he's an above average regular.

Has Cole Tucker's shoulder surgery worried you about where his best position might be? Future utility guy?
Eric A Longenhagen

Got a report on him this week that favored him to Newman.

Thoughts on Dustin May and Gavin Lux?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:33
Lux a future everyday shortstop who hits 8th in the lineup, May might just be a reliever due to platoon issues but is so far away that it's fine to let him start for the next several years to see what happens. 90-03 with a 55 slider for me in AZL.

Do any Stros young'ins contribute in 2017? in the majors of course?
Eric A Longenhagen

Aside from the obvious guys like Paulino I think Laureano and Stubbs could come up and play interesting roles. Stubbs more gadgety and versatile than impactful.

Do Hazen try to restock the farm using Greinke, Pollock and Goldschmidt?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:38
I think ownership has dictated some of the moves in AZ, not sure how involved they'll be going forward. If they're giving Hazen notes then I wouldn't expect Goldy to be moved. He'd net a haul, though. Contract is very favorable.

Bradley Zimmer's swing/issues vs. LHP make him destined for a platoon or will his speed/defense/patience allow him to play regardless? Do you think he can make needed adjustments to be passable vs. LHP and cut down on Ks?
Eric A Longenhagen

We've seen signs of him adjusting here in AFL and his contact has improved in each of my looks. Plays CF for me so even with platoon issues still a regular because of the D.

Indeed and, ironically, I'm terrified of them.

Okay everyone, thanks for stopping by today. Tuesday is my new chat day (RIP August) so I'll see you next week. I'm about to dive into Colorado's system. Enjoy election day(?)
