Enough, Ben - Bring Up Cruz

Post by bucco boy »

Bring up O'Neil Cruz and play him every day. He had a horrible start and his numbers still dwarf the likes of Kevin Newman, Diego Castillo or any other piece of junk you want to throw in the lineup at shortstop. They got past the arb date. There is no reason to not have him on the big league team. They had no idea that Jack Suwinski would lead all NL rookies in home runs. So, they have no idea what Cruz can do. Bring him up and let's find out.

Bad news: When Chang gets word of his release, he takes a swing at Cherington.
Good news: To nobody's surprise, he whiffs.

You know how to get things done. I am sure I will have some requests for you to give to Ben around trade deadline. :)

I am still a little confused at how this is all going to play out. First of all to see that we have 5 prospects predicted to be better than Roansy Contreras is pretty exciting. The top pre-season prospects for the Pirates all seem solid.

1) Nick Gonzalez- second base
2) Henry Davis- catcher
3) Oneil Cruz- shortstop
4) Quinn Priester- starting pitcher
5) Liover Peguero- shortstop
6) Roansy Contreras- starting pitcher

Scouts have Peguero a better glove, stolen base guy and average hitter than Cruz.
Scots have Cruz as one of the best cannons in the game along with big power pontential.

Peguero is probably won't see PNC this year. Do we keep Cruz at shortstop even though that is unlikely to be his future?
