Re: Implications of Votto Extension on Farm System?
I think with Lutz, I'd move him to LF and keep him there. The longer he plays the position, the better he will get.
Soto, I think I'd move him back to 3B and send him to ballet school or something if it would help him learn the position.
But there are others I would like to see get a chance at other positions. The Buckley kid was drafted as a 3B, and his bat looks as if he could stick for a while. And someone I know absolutely nothing about, but has put up decent (not great) numbers is Dominic D'Anna. Perhaps one of you who follow the minor leagues closer than I can shed some scouting light on D'Anna. Robert Maddox and Nick O'Shea pop up on the radar.
So there are several folks getting blocked for the forseeable future.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
