Re: You are the GM... Left Field
Watching this World Series reminds me that we need another reliable bat. Not only that, but we need less K's. Who has the least K's in baseball this year?
Kind of an anomoly, and every year fans like me chase the flavor of the month in terms of what won the championship (last year it was SF's pitching staff), but I think there is some merit to at least being in the top 10 in fewest K's. Especially if your team already has some SLG% to build with.
To that end, LF, I want players that can keep their K's in line with their walks, etc. I know I've said defensively I hate to down grade to the level of Alonso, but he's a strong option right now. Likewise with Sappelt. Both of their track records will tell us they will make a lot of contact and draw enough walks to stay at or above a .350 OBP.
No more Stubbs. Trade him. I know that's CF, but it relates because I think Sappelt should get the CF job.
LF: Alonso and Heisey as 4th outfielder, LIDR
CF: Sappelt and Heisey
Now you have 3 starting OFers that can get on base. LF and CF go from .310 and .324 OBP to over .350, with a likely .425 slg% combined.
I think Stubbs is holding this lineup back offensively and you can get better high K/high slg% from Francisco who will be helping out 3b/PH/LF.
