AND HEYYY Look who's made their way onto a Winter League roster!

Excited to see more of Dilson Herrera.

Thomas Brennan said...

Dilson is like the Energizer Bunny - he played something like 45 games in winter ball last year in Colombia, after a full 2013 season, and followed by a full 2014. That tells me he is hungry, wants to play, and he's in a big hurry.

Carillo double - he seems to be in a hurry too.

Chris/Thomas -

My hopes are:

1. we see Murphy play 2B through the all-star break and trade him then for blue chip prospect

2. then turn 2B over to Herrera...

3. move Mazzilli up to starter in AAA

Thomas Brennan said...

I think Mack's plan is reasonable. If this were 2014 again, I think contending is a long shot and Murphy could go in a winter deal.

But in 2015, this team really ought to try to contend, for 3 reasons: fans are HUNGRY for a return to relevance; talent is there to make it a legit conversation; fannies in the seat due to a team in the hunt. So dumping Murphy this off-season could work, but putting in younger, less-proven players has downside risk, which negatively impacts my 3 reasons above.

So I'd keep Murph, unless he was part of a trade for a hard hitting quality OF, and move him mid-season IF it makes sense then (i.e., does not upset the applecart if they are truly in the playoff picture in July)
