I was listening to Soren Petro this afternoon, and he was talking to the venerable Joel Goldberg (and by talking, it was more like arguing) about, among other things:
- Moustakas, compared to Miguel Cabrera, moreso in body type than skill, maybe "eating his way out" of a position at third, and the complication at first that may cause.
- Billy Butler as a hitter, being the "good if not spectacular" type.
- The void that is our rotation, and the necessity to trade some of our talent to fill this void.
This is the one that I wanted to bring up, because the first two sort of tied into third in general. And when I start to think about the future of this team, he has a point, although perhaps in a more generalized way: Eventually, someone is going to have to get traded.
It may come about due to a lack of position (read: Clint Robinson) or a glaring need at another (i.e. starting pitching), but no matter which way you slice it, one or more of the prospects we retain is going to be separated from this club via trade. So, I wanted to ask this question: "Who would make you the most disappointed to see traded?"
