Who are you expecting at third base next season?


Alex Rodriguez- NO, he will be suspended. agreed...in fact I wonder if we'll see him in 2015?
Eduardo Nunez - He will get some time at 3B I certainly hope not...just keep things simple..have him help Jeter out at SS...that's plenty
Derek Jeter - NO, SS and DH  this is a tick question, right?
David Adams - He will get a few starts if he is not traded already I can''t remember him very good...s' OK becuase he'll probably be gone
Ronnier Mustelier - NO AAA I was very impressed, but he is not nearly ready, sure hope they hang on to him though
Jayson Nix - see David Adams yep, great utility man...like a young Miguel Cairo...I'm sure he'll be around, he's valuable
Mark Reynolds - He or Yuke will get the majority of starts whicever is still on the team agreed...hope they both stay
David Freese - NO is this another trick question?
Michael Young - NO stop trying to confuse me any more than I already am?
Tyler Austin - NO say, I have an idea...why don't we trade this young fellow or the Panda?



My opinions above, Mo.
My opinions above also, bhjoe and Mo







Let me tell you all something...I think we should become sportscasters/analyists...I'm convinced we know as much  they do...accept for maybe Harold Reynolds...
