I can see presley in there vs a righty but Marte should be in there for Tabata. I will be happy if Marte becomes a .270-.280/20 HR guy. With his speed and defense that would still make him a very good player…but of course you always hope for more.

I was at the game tonight and was pretty pissed to see Marte out of the lineup. Was that Hurdle’s big plan? To win out the season with Tabata and Presley in the outfield? Just very disappointed.

He will no doubt in the near future accomplish the .300 and 30 dingers that Cutch accomplished this year. Cutch is so good that I really doubted Marte could be as good, but I really do believe now that he will be as good. Really impressed with the kid obviously. It’s so hard to be patient because it’s been 20 years – but I’m thinking that the core of this team may turn out to be a pretty impressive group when we look back someday.
Cutch, Pedro, Marte, Walker.
