They have to resign Bailey, they need to fill left field, and they have to figure out the catching situation. The platoon system between Hannigan and Mesoraco isn't working.
Yes I totally agree. This team needs some changes!!
First lets start by finding a capable manager. Next I'm all for getting Brian McCann for our everyday catcher. Resigning Choo would really tickle me he would be a very good Left Fielder. He would also make a great 2 hole guy behind Hamilton! Bailey is a must resign, he's finally starting to figure it out! And a new hitting coach. This team is set up to play small ball and we need a manager and hitting coach who recognizes that! Next we need some gritty guys on the bench who know there role but are leaders.
