25 homers is the minimum you want from your first baseman HOWEVER this guy plays 81 games at Citi where homers don't grow on trees.


he has real power right now and  projects to 23 homers in 450 at bats.  that is not bad.   Soup should eat some at bats vs left-handers and that will help our production at first.


right now we are on a mini-roll with excellent pitching.  losing Legares is a major blow however. Not having him and EY means Chris Young has to play CF.  painful to watch him.  



Alderson had a bad off season .  He spent our money poorly.  Granderson is not a 4 year 15million dollar player.  Young was signed way too early and why does hitting .200 get you 7 million?



Colon for 2 years at 20?  sorry but no way I give him 2 years.


Happily Young will be gone next year.  Hopefully Colon can be moved to a contender who needs pitching.  the Yanks come to mind.  Granderson just has to play better.  you cannot be hitting .196


Our bullpen now looks like a real bullpen.  Next year we should be loaded with starters and hopefully a deal can be made.  


this week will give us some more important info on the team.  who do we draft at #10 and who do we get from pittsburg's draft last year in the Ike  deal. ( player to be named later)


Good chance we get a college position player.   Turner and Zimmer are targets.  However i would not be surprised if we simply draft BPA and that is usually a high school arm.

Question about Duda: if he finishes the season at .241/.330./437 with 25 HR would you be happy? If so, you should be happy now. Those are his current numbers (with 25 being the # of HR's he's on pace to hit).

Duda will benefit from Hudgens depature he already is swinging at 1st pitch and 3-0 counts. In fact I am sure Terry was disgusted that he swung at Ball 2 for the HR.

Well, Duda's home run is barely a dent in the 17 LOB he had in the Arizona series.

@rodd @artie412 You're not wrong. I'm just voicing frustration over so many games lost because of the want of one hit or sac fly, etc.
