Can someone give me a reason why Belly should NOT be the starting 2B next yr?
Ronnie owns Felipe in every facet of the game besides speed.
Age + current contract. The two things Belliard can't control are the top two reasons Felipe will probably start next year. Lopez is 26, Ronnie is 33. Felipe has a lucrative deal right now, and is considered a building block for the franchise. As much as Ronnie has outplayed Felipe, it's a very complicated choice.
