South Side Hit Men Posted September 1, 2022 Share Posted September 1, 2022 16 minutes ago, mmmmmbeeer said: Harrison wasn't an awful choice for 2B in that he's a solid defender. Not a great stick but, given the lineup we thought we had, we could absorb a bit less production from 2B. Pollock for RF was not a bad pickup, at all. Not a lefty but his L/R splits were pretty even. Solid, professional hitter with good pop. Bit of a health risk but filled a need. Kelly has been a disaster but, as the 6th-7th inning guy, he was not a bad gamble to sign.. Josh Harrison’s last solid season was in 2017. Pollock is 34, has a bad arm, and played less than a dozen games in RF. What woukd make Rick Hahn think it was a position he could play? Kelly’s contract stated he couldn’t pitch in consecutive games over the first three months of the season. What other GM would take on that “gamble”, let alone for a second season at $2M more? This wasn’t supposed to be a tanking team trying to fill out three key positions with mid 30s guys on their final contracts. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
