Can the Buccos get by with the current roster?
We can get by with a strict platoon of Sanchez/Jones at first and Tabata or Harrison/Presley in RF. Sanchez is really growing on me and Jones can’t hit lefties. RF is not ideal but it will get us by for now.

Now it’s July 30 and Huntington calls his scout. “Okay, we want to start getting into negotiations with the Cubs. What do you have?” The scout scrambles. He thinks: “I knew I forgot something!” So he faxes in a scouting report that says only “good at baseball” and “facial hair?” Huntington sighs. “Well, that guy’s fired,” he says. And then he trades for Giancarlo Stanton.

He has earned a shot. If he works out then you have more from him than you were going to get from any of the rentals you could have acquired, if he doesn’t, well it wouldn’t be anything new to the team as nobody has produced in RF anyways. Lambo has a limited window until Polanco arrives and could prove to be a huge trade chip when Polanco is ready.

What it would do is allow Tabata to platoon with Schierholtz and then Sanchez and Jones could be the 1B platoon and we wouldn’t have Gabby getting all these AB’s against righties which he is terrible against. These wipeout lefties, of which there aren’t very many to begin with, usually only pitch 1 inning and often to only 1 batter. Regardless, this team is going to have to win on pitching assuming all goes well and they make the playoffs.
