That is an awful OF defense. Should put Sheets in RF and DH Vaughn to really make it a circus.

Which is why Engel or Hamilton need to be in there.  Both are hitting as good as Goodwin and are super elite with the glove and can help cover more of teb outfield

I called it. We're gonna see Eloy-Robert-Vaughn OF in the playoffs.

The narrative about Eloy's injury has been exaggerated and promoted incessantly. His injury reaching over a fence was a freak, one-time accident in an unusual circumstance.  So was his injury celebrating after a victory or one running the bases. You can add up the injuries that Grandal or other players have had and make a similar list.

Anyway, he will play some games in Left Field so i guess some will be disappointed while others will wait until Eloy twists and ankle  or bruises his knee and is out for a week so that they can say "I told you so."  Me, I am glad he is back and can't wait to see him playing next to his friend and fellow countryman, Luis Robert. The two have a friendship and chemistry out there that is entertaining to watch.

Yeah I think if you're gonna go with all that offensive power in the corners and DH, might as well play Engel (hit him like 7th) or even Hamilton and hit him 9th.

It's not so bad if Robert is back to himself again.

If I didn’t know any better, Id say Tony is doing this outfield on purpose to show everyone how bad it can get if we were to try it in meaningful games 😜

Goodwin is in a huge slump and Engel is hitting righties well (albeit a very small sample size) so really just go with Engel in CF.

I told you when he was hired Tony doesn’t GAF about OF defense, at least to start a game. He actually had Ron Kittle in CF once.

Either works for me as the D and range in CF is for more important imo

Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if that was the 2022 opening day starting OF.

Which Dylan Cease shows up tonight?  Hopefully the one who strikes people out and gets through 4 innings with less than 80 pitches.

Yeah...we need to see more of this Dylan Cease.

Vaughn doesn’t have big enough shoe size for RF.

Small point... Eloy and Luis Robert are not countrymen. Eloy is Dominican, and Robert is Cuban.

I think Tony said Engel was a bit banged up, and wasn’t going to play back to back.

Given the choice between Goodwin having a platoon advantage with the bat and Hamilton's defense out there...I'd still go with catching the ball.

They need to do a better job of lining that shit up where maybe Vaughn and Eloy are both not in the corners.

Sadly Goodwin isn't out hitting BHam by much over the last month either.

He has played him back-to-back since saying that though. Kind of unclear.

This defense in the outfield is absolutely atrocious. Hopefully they hit enough to cover for it.

We knew we were going to see Eloy and Vaughn in the corners some.  I am OK with it on occasion.  Its going to be necessary at times - just hope it doesn't become an everyday thing.

Since the All Star Break:

Brian Goodwin: .200 / ,250 / ,200 (.450 OPS)

Billy Hamilton: .214 / .214 / .286 (.500 OPS)

Adam Engel: .217 / .333 / .261 (.594 OPS)

It's why Luis Robert was ranked the 7th most irreplaceable player in MLB by Fan Graphs.

That's why I said platoon advantage rather than improved offense.
