The offseason

I want to apologize for the lack of posts during the last month of the season. I haven’t given you a reason to check this blog on a daily or semi-daily basis.

I plan on changing that here during the offseason with frequent posts. My hope is that we can turn this into a two-way communication forum.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts this offseason and even more so to hearing yours.

Steve, appreciate all your hard work. Love talking offseason. Would love to get your thoughts on first base–our lack of production and the need to get a professional/veteran/clutch hitter in that spot. On second base, I still like the idea of bringing in a Lopez or Hudson, so that we can have a high average hitter in that spot. Having too many young guys is wearing the fans out. It is no wonder that we really disappointed with runners in scoring position. On the bullpen side, seems like the focus should be on a pitcher who locates well, has at least two pitches, and is not necessarily throwing mid-90’s. Rivera is not the only bullpen pitcher who does not give up home runs–there has to be others with that qualification. On the starting pitchers side, we learned not to go after those who are fly-ball pitchers. You have to be able to keep the ball down to be successful in Chase Field–trade for the sinker baller in Atlanta?? What was his name? Tks!
