What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
It's time for kinsler to start taking some ground balls at 1b
It would make sense from the perspective of being able to fit the best players on the field on a regular basis, but even though Ian is good defensively, he probably can't learn 1B overnight, and I can't imagine the Rangers' plan A is to have him switch positions in the middle of the season. That said, if they did decide that and it makes room for Profar, I'd live with it. I just hope Ian would too. We don't need him disgruntled.
I wonder if Cruz could play 1B. Swisher made the transition pretty easily, and we all know Cruz's range in the OF has been in decline for a few years now. I imagine that, with some practice, Ian would get to more balls in the OF than Cruz.
because we all know that kins was a great 1b -oops.
Not happening mid-season, besides, Kinsler is still on the DL for 2 more weeks at least, anyways. By that time, hopedully Moreland will be better. What is a better question is what happens if Moreland hits DL and Cruz is suspended while Kinsler is still out? BAM.
Murphy's law is a bitch. And so is Murphy's bat.
jeff baker can do everything including JD's mother while im on break
Wow Andy knows a Mother's joke. Kind of sophmoric but hey if that is all he's got-go with it idiot.
Fake Andy is back. Also, Moreland is on the DL, McGuiness purchased from AAA.
Come on children...be nice. Why would you move Ian to 1B?..You have Baker,very solid...who just homered against Boston by the way. Just posted on FOXSW..'Moreland on DL".
Speaking of Kinsler.....isn't his play at 2B dropping? I thought I heard say whyen he made his last error beforer goinmg on DL, that he has already made almost as many errors as he did ALL LAST YEAR. That aint good...leave Profar @ 2B anduse Ian as DL as we need his bat and run production.
With the injuries and suspensions looming seems like Kinsler might come up as a DH with Berkman playing 1B. KInsler might need to be slowly moved into playing 2B again. I think this is a way to ease him out of the 2B role and still keep his bat in the lineup. Kinsler can be a difference maker in October.
Where would Kinsler play best; wanting Elvis, Profar, Beltre...U think Wash can figure this out?JD at the break with wood!?
St.Louis series June 21 to 23 will be a great series.
Outfield a mess1st Base in questionCatching eraticPitching Wins ChamponshipsGotta score runs
Pitching wins championships: Need defense.
Give me an infield of Beltre, Andrus, Profar, Kinsler and an outfield of Martin, Gentry and Beltre.
Berkmans 1B defense makes me wonder if I took MY for granted.
^^ Is that the REAL J. Sundberg?
of course it was you idiot. His job is to monitor this site for ideas.
That would be a pretty good defensive team, eric.
