    We should be good against lefties. Camargo will be an option also.

    Agreed.

    On days where Duvall is replacing Neck/Ender and Camargo is replacing Swanson we should be one of the better lineups in baseball.

    This is exactly what "Who fills out the bottom of the order due to the ST rest schedule is meaningless" means.

    The positive takeaway from today's lineup is the implementation of an Inciarte/Albies platoon in the lead off spot...who bats in the bottom half of a ST lineup is completely inconsequential.

    I wouldn't mind occasionally seeing an outfield of Duvall, Acuna and Camargo.

    I wouldn’t be afraid of dufail and Camargo in the OF against lefties. I would like a better hitter than dufail. But we got him so might as well use him properly.

    Duvall against lefties is a good hitter. I doubt many teams will have someone that capable as a 7th hitter for example.

    Ozzie
    Donaldson
    Freeman
    Acuna
    Flowers
    Camargo
    Duvall
    Pitcher
    Ender

    That's something I'd run quite often when Swanson is getting a break.

    Duvall's done. His bat slowed a tad leading to a total collapse of his game. He's got nothing left

    This is my take until he proves otherwise. He used to kill lefties. Now he is on the wrong side of 30 and hasn’t produced jack****.

    We'll see. Apparently Duvall had medical issues last summer. He hit well before that.

    Severino and kershaw likely to be out a while. Are one of these teams likely to go get Dallas k now?

    Time will tell. Him being a flawed his whole career and being on the wrong side of 30 makes a steep decline fairly predictable. The medical stuff sounds like an attempt to push off his decline off on something.

    I would say many teams would like to sign Dallas, but he is still asking for too many years.

    Theoretical Camargo in RF (oh yeah, or SS), along with flowers, peps it up quite a bit.

    I was looking at CF stats and saw something that surprised me. Mallex Smith put up a 3.4 WAR last year. I hated trading him.

    He had probably the best offensive season possible for him. Really high BABIP. His defense was not great. I don't think he will sustain 3 war. Keeping Ender was the better choice in my opinion.

    BABIP will fall some but he's probably going to have an above average BABIP with his skill set. He's probably a 2.5 WAR - 3 WAR guy. That's got value.

    I also like Ender better, I just wish we could have found a way to use both. Mallex is fun to watch.
