I would love to read what all Halo fans think about giving the prospects 162 games to prove themselves. We all know that management was shooting for Tex only and now are not interested in signing a bat. With that said do we give 3rd base to Matt Brown and Shortstop to Brandon Wood giving us potential power at both positions. I assume we would move Figgy to left and have Rivera and Vlad play right and DH. Do all of you think we could still win the division with that lineup? And if they didn't produce would that hurt us in trade value as far as other teams looking at potential ........................ especially Wood. I think back when the Dodgers gave the opportunity to Garvey, Lopes, Russell and Cey and it worked out but it seems like most fans want to play for the current year and win now !! I have mixed feelings but would like to hear all of the pros and cons regarding giving the kids a a full year of opportunity. Thus, trading for pitching to offset the unknown offense that we would be introducing and living with. Then lastly what would we do with Izzy and Aybar .............................. would they be the names in a trade? Looking forward to your takes and any other options that you feel might fill the void of not having that big bat to protect Vlad that management is not interested in pursuing.
