I know what your thinking! Your thinking," Who does he think he is, we cant have good problems. Were sitting here with the worst bullpen in all of major league baseball with a starting rotation where our best SP is a rookie and journeyman who scratch his back on a telephone pole."
Altuve was just signed to a extension something like a 4 year extension. Well your thinking," Whats wrong with that?" Heres whats the matter with that . We have deshields at lancaster probably 1 year or two maybe three away depending on what he does at Corpus next year. Also we have Villar at short playing pretty well there and correa as the next great SS but people are saying so much of how good villar is. We also got Mier but i see him as a potential backup. Wait you ask what bout our problems with first base and outfield? See i know as well as you that wallace is good but not great and not even a starter on most teams. i dont see singleton as a call up yet maybe next year midway through but not yet so what do we do with that also?
First with the the altuve thing. Well deshields can play center and or play DH. I project him as probably our next great leadoff hitter. Second issue SS ,well move Correa over to third seems like a good idea. Machado was moved to third himself. Ok first base well heres one answer which you may not like. Make Castro able to play !B and play wallace at DH and maybe when stassi or garcia are called up then have castro play first if necessary.
Doubt i see much callups next year until midseason unless springer is kept down
Singleton i could see staying in triple a for half of next year. Most prospects will probably be promoted to the next level by next year.
