Well, that sounds nice...And Riske for Mota? I'll take it...I guess.
Anyway, the lineup (now that Gonzalez also looks like a done deal) is rounding out nicely. I am still not sure why we went out and picked up Gonzalez with Cora, Graf, Loretta already here, and Pedroia in the wings.
So opening day looks a little like this...
And look at the infield..
With Snow in there, it might be the best in the AL.
Crisp covers a ton of ground in CF...Tek behind the plate. Strong defense up the middle is huge.
Pitching looks very good.
I am also thinking with the departure of Mota, that we still might be talking about a Wells for Baez (in LA) deal...
