Saul Good

I was thinking about our team today and what I am looking for out of this season. I decided that a great scenario would involve us having 1\3 of a championship roster right now, 2\3 by the end of the season, and the pieces all in place by next year (even if those players haven't yet reached championship potential).

I don't know if we are on schedule yet, but we might be. We would need 3 everyday players. Billy Butler is one. Escobar may be another. Gordon may be another. Guys like Kila and Pena I would consider longshots. All things considered, I'd say we probably have 3 out of that bunch.

I would like to believe that Hoch will be on that level, but its hard to say. Francis looks great so far, but I don't know that he will be around that long. Chen won't, Davies sucks, and nobody else is worth mentioning. Crowe has the best chance, but its hard to project him at this point. We may be on schedule with our starters between Crowe, Hoch, and Francis, but that's pretty optimistic.

Our bullpen is ahead of schedule, so that's a plus.

I would like to think that Cain, Moose, and Hosmer will bring us 2\3 of the way there by the end of the season as far as the lineup is concerned. Maybe Mazarro can get it going soon, and the lefties can start joining the roster by the end of the season.

What do you guys think? Is that a reasonable timeline, and where are we in relation to it?

Sounds reasonable.

We need two guys to emerge in the rotation. Crow? Montgomery? Lamb? Someone else? I don't care, but we need two. Currently, we have a #4, and that's all; his name is Hochevar.

I'm not trying to kill the guy. Just saying it like it is. He doesn't suck, but he's definitely not a 1-3.

Looks like he had a pretty fair seaason last year.

A couple of years ago he was our best position player (complete surprise), and many (myself included) said that he was the most important player for 2010, primarily because our SS position was such a cluster ****.

He ****ed his shoulder last year, though, and the book on Aviles is out. Dude steps in the bucket like a sonofabitch, to the point that most college pitchers would expose his ass.

He's likable, but he's just not that good.

I'm slightly diappointed in his bat so far. I saw him in Arizona and he has yard power and hit pretty good.

lets see how the rule that

any barehand play is either an out or a hit. Unless a wild throw leads to a second base.

I'm keeping the faith. I don't think his approach looks that bad.

If the glove is elite, we need about marginal (.250/.350/.450). I think he can do this.

I always get a hit with the barehand play but rarely ever get to 2nd base unless I've had a few.

I understand. But the ump has called that a strike all game and so Francis throws it there thinking he's going to get a strike yet gets 3 balls out of it. The ump isn't being consistent in that inning at all
