Trying to figure it all out, just gives me an anxiety complex – I prefer to sit back and appreciate this kid earning his opportunity. Overall the one thing that can not be argued is that the 25 man roster just got stronger than it was yesterday. That’s as good a place to start as any.

I think the player that will be most effected is McGehee. Presley and Marte will play a lot together. Jones at 1B and Pedro at 3B. Sorry

236/302/390 … 8HR – 35 RBI .McGehee’s stats. Why is this guy a guarantee in the line-up?

I fully expect him to start tomorrow.

Your description of him is right on target. He has the natural talent to be great – it’s just a question of whether he masters it.

Like say, a hot start followed by two poor weeks. Will we be “oh see, he wasn’t ready…send him back” or will we understand that he still has work to do?

I’m guessing he won’t. Presley will keep on playing as long as he hits around .250, with Marte getting spot starts is my guess. But we’ll see tomorrow.

Every prospect has something lacking. If they didn’t, they’d be in the majors.

Plus, something had to be done about the leadoff spot. Hopefully Marte can address that need.
