LSB's favorite poster is back again for a post that I'm sure will get massive heat but I speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. First off, LA, YU mad?! eff LA, their fans, and their team. Now that I've got that off my chest and I've thrown the first punch in the fan feud, I want to talk about BIGGER and BETTER things....
As many of you know, after this season, Hamilton, Lewis, and Naps are all FA. Many people are worried about "the core" I say it's simple. After YU signs, we push hard and sign Prince Fielder. We package Harrison along with Hamilton for somebody this year. We move Mitch to RF for 2012, Martin in CF, and Cruz in LF. After 2013, we've got Young, Cruz, Kinsler, and Murphy coming off the books. Again, that's easy; We sign Kinsler and let the others walk and/or package them in a trade during the 2013 season before they hit Free agency. We move Kinsler to LF and bring up Profar during the 2014 season.
So in 2014 I invision we have the following Line-up give or take trades or FA signings..
RF- one of the latin players we signed this past year
Hamels/Greinke (signed as FA or traded for sometime before 2014)
That allows us to stay fairly young and in contention, go out and sign/trade for BIG names, and we let our older/more injury prone players walk without them hampering us with a long term deal.
Happy holidays to all of you and your families
