    It means nobody learned a damn thing from this year and that is that pitching wins championships dont waste 20$ million on an old third basemen when we have Bohm waiting and could invest that money into some combination of Hammels, Wheeler. KEUCHEL, OR EVEN Ryu

    Craig Glessner is 100 percent right on! we have a kid who’s in the minors we think we’ll be up by July you have Franco playing third base leave him there until he comes up if copper didn’t mess with Franco for the last two years he give you 20 to 25 home runs and 80 RBIs and season

    Agreed, I’m wondering if they don’t tender Franco, if they might be able to get someone cheaper to keep the spot warm until Bohm comes up. I think Franco’s number should be changed to 53 to signify all the times he grounds out weakly to 3rd.

    Damn 53 that’s funny. That’s what I was thinking too either we offer Franco and let Hernandez go put Kingery at 2nd or offer Hernandez and let franco go use Kingery at 3rd until Bohm is ready then look to trade Hernandez
