Steve Adams

Sure, but I don't have time to do every division. Gotta wrap this chat up in a couple minutes.

Odds Reddick agrees to an extension with the A's by opening day?
Steve Adams

I can't see the two sides working out a deal. I think Reddick hits the open market next year, and I think he's a trade piece come summer if the A's aren't contending.

First closer to lose their job?

Fernando Rodney? David Hernandez?

Do you think it's time for the Mets to trade Plawecki? I don't see how they find AB's for him at the Major League level.
Steve Adams

If they really want him to get everyday ABs in the minors, which I can understand, I don't see how they keep him around. d'Arnaud is injury prone, sure, but at a certain point you're just going to be left with two guys that could start on several clubs, with Plawecki ending up out of options. Exploring trades for Plawecki makes sense, as it's clear that d'Arnaud is ahead of him.
Fernando Rodney

I'm coming after you.

I would like to have seen Laroache as a back up to Tex in NY. Great short porch. He's got a great glove

He's not stepping away from the White Sox, he said he's stepping away from baseball entirely.

Who is the Nats' opening day shortstop?
Steve Adams
4:12
Espinosa with Turner hanging out in AAA for awhile. Could do worse than an Espinosa/Drew platoon for a month or more.

Ok -- I've gotta wrap up for the week. Thanks so much for chatting again. I'm going on vacation for two weeks (I can't even believe I'm typing that) starting Sunday, so I won't be around to host next week or the following. Unsure if we'll have someone step in to host in my absence, but I'll see if we can get something lined up.

I'll talk to you all after the season starts! Enjoy the rest of Spring Training, and feel free, as always, to bother me on Twitter: @Adams_Steve.
Thanks for chatting
