How long do we have to keep this Reddick experiment going on


What experiment is that? He's a solid player. Not everyone can be a star or core player.

I logged on to offer a way-too-early overreaction, but I see the stampede has already started! Haha.

Here's mine. I watched Diaz in spring training, and now a couple of games in Tampa. Straight up worthless so far. If he was supposed to be Marwin's replacement, well he can't carry Marwin's jock strap.

There a guy with a dinger last game and a double tonight who was Marwins actual replacement in LF.

Marwin was batting under .200 twenty games into last season, so how about we let things play out. And considering how much left field Marwin played, you can argue that Brantley is just as much of a Marwin replacement. I don't expect Diaz to play as much as Marwin.

Thus far tonight has been a big Ol poppy flavored lollipop
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

If Correa is too sore to play, move Bregman to SS.

Welp season over. That was fast. Guess we'll have to try again next year.

Agreed. This is a disaster. YouTube sensation Alex Bregman needs to remember that he's a baseball player first.

This is absolutely going to be a real take from a lot of people.

Correa needs to eat his Wheaties or something, dude is tissue soft this far into his career.

Does Brantley play first, third and short? I thought Diaz was signed to be the "utility" replacement part of Marwin's role. No?

Hinch has been very reluctant to play Bregs at SS. Well, that's my recollection but I might need to verify it. Has he ever gone on the record as to why?

Biggest mistake of the offseason wasn't trading for Diaz... it's not getting Goldschmidt... 3 homerun game tonight

So I was trying to hold off on this take because I didn't want to start off piling on Carlos.

But I wanna know how on earth an elite athlete gets sidelined with neck soreness from an awkward tag?

He didn't slam into a wall, slide into a knee, or have a collision. He was tagged awkwardly in a run down.

Seriously? That's enough to sideline a professional athlete who's in the shape Correa is in?

Correct. I guess Jeff should have found another former all star short stop to be our utility player.

I think it was not trading for Trout, Sale, & Betts. We could have won 120 games.

He could have found someone who could throw to 1st at least
