And you know this .... how?
Because there are few rookies who put up those kind of numbers.

He only played 113 games in 2017.

I will take the numbers he put up last year. It’s better than what you will get from Kieboom.

Hehehe - I don't find it to be so bad.  Maybe not 100% is worth watching, but there's some insights they discuss which make it worthwhile to watch.

This show is just awful to watch. Should be called “Phil Wood’s Random Useless Baseball History.”

Here's an article that talks a bit about what Donaldson may look like the next few years.

https://blogs.fangraphs.com/what-to-expect-from-josh-donaldson/

I dont like the idea of 4 years, because there is potential for a big drop off after year 1 or 2. But, theres also a chance he continues to be productive through the deal.

It's not my favorite move, but I'm good on Donaldson the next 2 years. A move to 1st as soon as possible may help him stretch his success out a bit. If we go Kieboom at 2nd this year with Donaldson at 3rd, then shift Kieboom to 3rd and Donaldson to 1st, when Garcia is ready in a year or 2.

I'd probably prefer other options but I dont think Donaldson is going to just fall off the cliff and be a .211 hitter near the end of the deal. He will surely decline, but I suppose there is risk in every big money, multi year deal.
No no. Slate said he will be a .211 hitter. He is always right.

I said full season. He was hurt in 2018. Compare 2019 with 2015, 2016, and 2017. He's declined across the board.
He only played 113 games in 2017.

I will take the numbers he put up last year. It’s better than what you will get from Kieboom.

have some doubts on signing JD, not only his age but his clubhouse persona as well.
( does he dance? ) maybe i am just crying over rendon heading to the west coast, not only is he no longer on my team but i will rarely see him as well. kinda like being dumped by the homecoming queen, the next one will be hard pressed to measure up.

if Cabrera were willing to slip into a role where he'd be a backup with about 300 PAs pencilled in before injuries, then I think he's moving into a "must sign" position.  Perhaps you put in some incentives for appearances or PAs.  He'd be Kieboom insurance, and capable of playing around the infield.

Thames is interesting too.  I would not mind going into next year with Thames and RZ at 1st, Turner at SS, and some combo of Cabrera, Kendrick, and Kieboom covering 2d and 3d.  I'd still be looking for another 3B, but it would not have to be a star.
Cabrerra is probably then next available third baseman after Donaldson.

Kieboom is gonna hit. The question is where will he play. In the end, he may get moved to the OF, like how Castellanos was.

Are there any other folks here who are also obsessed with the PBS Newshour ?  2IPAs & I tape each show to see when we aren't home at dinnertime.

Last night's show (Friday the 13th) was particularly good.  Besides the regular great political discussion with Mark Shields & David Brooks, there was a piece about misinformation that is spread on the Internet through some social organizations.  One very interesting aspects was interviews with those who spread misinformation and the system or plan they use to fo this.  Here is a link:

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/are-social-media-giants-doing-enough-to-prevent-the-spread-of-misinformation

Then to change gears, there was a piece on this Moslem musical group invited by Winston-Salem NC town council to perform in the US:

Certainly it’s a leap of faith on Kieboom and he may prove to not be ready. But, if the team signs Donaldson, it’s clear that they aren’t paying anyone to start at 2nd. Kieboom has the potential to be better than some decent money free agents, and he’ll be extremely cheap. We need him, at his salary, to take hold of one of those open infield spots. Then use available funds for the pen.

Semis vs Weber St
What is the Weber State nickname?  The Pottsies? The Grills?
