    It's Mes right now, but I think Grandal is underrated on RZ.

    Same. Unless its for a really big time guy in trade, we can hold on to both for a while and won't have to choose one or the other for at least 2 or 3 years.

    Best case scenario is that both guys end up being solid defensively and show they can OPS at .800+ in the majors in a platoon (likely with Mes as the starter since he'll get there first). At that point you deal one for a king's ransom.

    Can Grandal play third base? Is that even an option?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Supposedly. I have seen conflicting reports though. Mostly revolving around arm strength. If he could, his value would sky rocket to the Reds.

    I believe Soto will be at 1B in Cincy if Votto leaves in a few years. I like Mesoraco's overall package better than Grandal's but I believe Grandal may end up with a better bat (BA and OPS) than Mesoraco. Being a switch hitter is a big plus at the position too.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    That is some solid intel right there. Well done.
