    watching the replay of the game

    Robert looks totally fucked in the box.  That first AB, WOW. Worried about him, ngl.

    It looks like they’ve backed off on hitting him 2nd, which is good. Our 6 thru 9 hitters to start are going to be extremely lacking in major league experience. Just have to let them play and hope they’re good.

    That looks accurate to me.  But Fry is expected back May 1, so you can’t put him on the 60 day, and as soon as Engel is ready, you DFA Hamilton, right?

    Ok, I thought I heard Fry could be headed to the 60-day, but if not, then Zavala will probably be the other guy to go if they need to make room. 
    And yes, Hamilton may not be long but he does bring a nice option off the bench for pinch running.

  3. Here's what I have for an opening day roster-

    Lineup: Anderson SS, Eaton RF, Abreu 1B, Moncada 3B, Grandal C, Collins DH, Robert CF, Vaughn LF, Madrigal 2B

    Bench: Hamilton OF, Garcia UTL, Mendick IF, Lucroy C

    Rotation: Giolito, Keuchel, Lynn, Cease, Rodon

    Bullpen: Kopech, Ruiz or Turley, Foster, Marshall, Crochet, Heuer, Bummer, Hendriks

    Roster moves to come:

    Option Mercedes

    also cut NRIs- Nick Williams, Tim Beckham, Matt Reynolds, Zach Remillard, Ryan Burr

    60-day IL- Fry and Eloy (Cordero is already there)

    15-day IL- Engel

    Drop from 40-man: Ruiz or Turley

    Add to the 40-man: Vaughn, Hamilton, Lucroy

    Calling a jersey number “trash” is absurd.

    I’m a traditionalist when it comes to uniforms. As more numbers get retired, the numbers will naturally go up, but numbers in the 80s and 90s are for minor leaguers in spring training.
    If I could change Robert to 44 and Cease to 48, I’d do it in a second.

    R SS Anderson

    L RF Eaton

    S 3B Moncada

    S C  Grandal

    R CF Robert

    L DH Collins

    R LF Vaughn

    R 2B Madrigal

    As long as Vaughn is serviceable and won’t crash into Robert, I don’t dislike this lineup.
