DateQuestionAnswer
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Christian Yelich is having a fabulous Spring Training with the Marlins. For contract reasons we all know he won't make the team come Opening Day. But after Stanton, he's the best position player anywhere in the entire organization, isn't he? Though that might not be saying more about the Marlins than it is about Yelich.
(Paul from DC)
Stanton is definitely No. 1, and I guess you could make an argument for Yelich as No. 2 right now. PECOTA says Justin Ruggiano should be a 2+ win player this year, which is a nice development for them. But I wouldn't be stunned if Yelich could come up now and outplay that.

By the way, Placido Polanco is third on that list. So yeah, that says something about the Marlins. (Zachary Levine)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Wouldn't the Rays be better served to give Justin Ruggiano an extended look instead of dealing for any right fielder?
(R.J. from Beyond the Boxscore)
Well, until this year, I'd say yes. But if you have a chance to make the playoffs, you have to go for it. I don't think the Rays will be experimenting this year because they are a legit contender. (John Perrotto)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see the Rays bringing Kenny Lofton or someone else to replace Rocco ?
(Tommy from OPS,FL)
I don't think they need to with Gomes around and the possibility that they could bring up someone like Justin Ruggiano or Fernando Perez. As good as Baldelli can be, I don't think this is a case where they have to react to strongly. (Steven Goldman)
