Well, I hope everyone wasn't too set on Troy Tulowitski or Stephen Drew, or any other free-agent or trade acquisition being able to send their talents to Corona Park. That shortstop decked all out in the No. 4 will be your starting shortstop come Opening Day 2015 in just a few short months. Wilmer Flores, who has had an up-and-down beginning to his major-league career, should see this as a tremendous opportunity to expand both his offensive and defensive capabilities, sharpen his knowledge of the game, and try become a driving force to solidify the position in Queens for at least the next several seasons.
It looks like our team is pretty much all set, aside from the starting rotation and the bullpen, which could still see some tweaks over the next two months or so. Here are my projects, just for the people around the diamond for, at least the beginning of the regular season.
First Base-Lucas Duda
Second Base-Daniel Murphy
Third Base-David Wright
Left/Right Field: Curtis Granderson and Michael Cuddyer
Center: Juan Lagares
Note: Cuddyer could see some starts at first base as well.
I know this is a short piece, Mack's Nation, but as the year draws closer, especially in terms of Spring Training starting up, there will be more content from me. Looking forward to a great 2015!!
