This also helps Luke Voit's chances of making the team
Phillies fans have been debating about whether or not to pick up Voit should the Brewers let him go.

they could make a move on Hiura and platoon him with Hall.

Any chance we make a move for Hiura? Don't really have a place to start him but a 115 wRC+ (what he posted last year) would make him one of the better hitters on this team.

Edit: I'm also seeing Hiura has reverse platoon splits. Hits righties better than lefties so might not be the best option for the Phillies to platoon with Hall.

as between Hiura and Chavis, I'd take Hiura.

Chavis can actually play a position. Hiura is a DH at this point

I suppose if you have confidence in Chavis's glove, then I can see it. Also, tbh, I'm not giving up much for a guy who'd be 26th man

Smith might be able to use a partner. Baseball-wise, Chavis should be the 26th man, but I suspect it will be M Adams. Maybe R. Adams serves the RH platoon role.  I don't mind a backup C like Adams playing in the field because he can be moved to C if Ruiz needs to come out.

Meh, Smith is better against LHP. Think I'd rather see if Smith can flourish with regular time

Watch out for the Angels this year.  They could surprise and give Houston a real challenge.

I expect Rendon to have a monster year. Not just a nice year but a monster year. The dude is healthy finally, and even his 2020 was up to his standards. I think folks forget just how good Rendon was. His stats and projections justified that contract, just his meds probably did not. LAA blew it on reviewing his health records.  Still, a healthy Rendon is up there with Turner among the top all around players. Ohtani-Trout-Rendon is almost like having Turner-Rendon-Soto, with Scherzer or a healthy Stras pitching.

I just realized their entire rotation is Showtime as a righty, followed by 5 lefties. It might just work.

People say this every year. I suppose it has to be true eventually. I'm certainly rooting for them to knock the Astros down a peg or two.

did anyone else think when in the WBC final Ohtani pitched to Trout how dangerous it would be to have the two of them on the same team? ;)

I’m gonna go with the Padres finally cashing it in and defeating the Guardians in the World Series. I’m really unsure about who comes out of the AL this season, but if they can keep their pitching healthy, San Diego looks really tough to me in the NL.
