Have to agree with that whole heartily.
If it's and buts were berries and nuts we'd all have a merry christmas. That said, I am keeping hope alive that the organization can get a true lead off hitter somehow, somewhere. I do not think it's going to happen without moving pitching we can ill afford to part with. This is why I am not discounting L.J. Hoes just yet. Power from LF is desirable sure. However the team generally speaking has enough power. Though in my opinion It isn't scoring enough runs. This year's bullpen has been nothing short of amazing. We would have a very tough time of duplicating the results it has given us.
I will just start filling out my winter meetings christmas list now
2-Quality lead off hitter at 2B or LF
3-Upgrade at 2B and LF overall
