|2016-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Looking ahead to 2017, what do you think of a CF platoon of Jake Smolinski (against lefties) and Jaycob Brugman (against righties) for Oakland?|
(John from San Francisco)
|It's interesting! I'm a big platoon fan and I don't know why more managers don't try them. I suppose it can be a bit of a drain on roster construction, but so long as you're platooning just a few positions, it can't hurt too badly, right? Just more bench bats.
In any case, I think that makes a lot of sense. I always like Smolinski as a prospect, and even if he has lost some of his luster, you have to think he'd be able to handle the short side of a platoon. And Brugman is exactly the kind of guy you want on the other side -- nice, but not overwhelming stats, so you aren't exactly wasting him.
Like I said, I love platoons, haha, so I'm for it. That said, it'll depend a lot on whether Smolinski and Brugman can handle being in a part time role, both ego-wise and psyche-wise. I know that sounds meat headed or vague, but I think platoons fall apart most because guys either can't handle being routinely benched or their routine can't handle it. (Trevor Strunk)

|He's sort of interesting. Not five who are just interesting interesting but hes interesting. There's a lot of 45 and 50's there, which means he's probably a fourth outfielder, but fourth outfielders are valuable. (Christopher Crawford)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
