How would you solve the first base, DH conundrum

Postby D-Trains on Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:47 pm

What would you do?

All three options assume the Bruce getting a few games a month at DH and a few at 1B.

Tough choices. I voted trade Edwin Encarnación. It's not like I wouldn't like to see EE emulate Boomstick for a year or two but with a trade I'm counting on a couple of decent level prospects.
I don't expect him to be here thru the whole season so it's wait and see.

Hi, Please vote again. I messed up the poll section with my Bruce comment and dt.

Thanks.

To me Volgalbach is nothing more than a AAAA and i don't understand the love affair by some people with him. So trading him has no value and no one would give us anything for him, so Healy and Encarnacion are sadly the only options this team has for now at 1B/DH

And big Joey Curletta. I mean, why not?

Healy has over 1400 big league PAs of consistent playing time and VB has 146 scattered over 3 seasons. VB might be a 4A guy but nobody knows at this point. Healy is the 4A poster child.

Yes, looking forward to seeing him in ST. Churchill doesn't think much of him.

OT - Hey, Darren, you see what's happening in Arizona right now (besides it's being 51 degrees there)?
Turmoil on the Wildcats basketball landscape with the coaches. I've got an article posted on Huskies BBall forum about it.

No, I have that one as a loss so hopefully I am wrong again. It better be hotter than 51 degrees in a month. The thong bikini wearers in our party will be pissed!
