Cruz at 1st base

Post by ReadingPiratesFan »

Am I missing something, or why doesn’t anyone mention O’Neil Cruz at 1st base and Pergero at short….
Just asking?

My guess is because he has one of the best rated arms in the game. Third base would be a logical mention, but Hayes is one of the best fielding third basemen. He played almost 10 games in the minors in left field. I suggested right field, but I think Pirate fans are afraid of another Gregory Polanco. My guess is the Pirates and most fans don't want to mess with a good thing. Personally I like the potential of Peguero at short better, even though I know I am outvoted.
