Our system clearly stinks, but I think we have a number of future pros, which is nice. Guys like Crowe, Bourque, Read, Cronin, etc. seem like (at worst) guys who can stick on a roster, Kieboom has star potential but a decent floor and there's also a non-zero chance we get Sterling Sharp back. Just have to hope he doesn't get hurt and DL'ed for the year. Kinda hoping he bombs in ST and doesn't stick on a roster.

System is definitely top heavy. There are a couple names though that could be difference makers come this time next year. Romero, Antuna, and Denaburg have been held back by injuries but have top 100 potential. Intrigued by Antuna. He was the highest paid signee the year we got Garcia. Missed all year because of TJ but looks like he should be ready to go this year.

The depth in the system could look a lot better by the end of the hear.

FP told a story once about how one of his managers had him watching center field the whole game to see if there was some kind of light giving signals that he was convinced the team was using.  I don't remember the manager or opposing team in the story.

The Clubhouse / Re: "I Don't Know" - Third Base

If they are going to do a bunch of crazy stuff to prevent it, the real fix is allowing catchers and pitchers to use some kind of electronic signalling to each other.  Then there are no signs to steal.

It's pretty easy to define the rules, right? Whatever can be seen with the naked eye by players or coaches on the field or in the dugout is fair. Everything else is foul. Levy enormous penalties - like the entire payroll for a year - if a team is found doing anything with optics or electronics.

Fans are watching now.

Dave said Carter will get opportunity to win 3rd base job. Will be strictly used for 3rd base.

makes sense. Garcia is supposed to have a very good glove.  If Trea is re-signed, probably the best internal arrangement is Garcia at Short, Trea sliding to 2B, and Kieboom at 3B. Might as well give Kieboom a real shot at 3B, let Castro play 2B, and hope it works.
