If Michael A Taylor is our opening day CF, then what the hell are we even doing here

I think Robles has played well enough this Spring in addition to his call ups to say MAT should be our 4th or traded.

How's Robles been playing in CF?  He looked pretty green on the one play I saw him this year where he broke back on a short fly that should have been an easy catch.

These lineups certainly look like the plan is to start MAT opening day.   I'm ok with that as long as they give Robles plenty of ABs and starts and let him earn the starting role.  Or will they keep him down for service time reasons?

I haven’t seen MAT play this ST? Has his swing actually changed? I’ve heard rumors it’s a significant change and much less complicated.

Yeah he looks very comfortable with it imo. He is still swinging at pitches he shouldn’t, but looks smooth doing it

If you are going to strikeout anyways, at least look good doing it.

Unless he showed up to camp looking like Pablo Sandoval, yes.
