not expecting anything in 2013 anyway so if he signs a modest one year deal until we get our real center fielder ,whatever.

NO Leonys Martin... I don't want anything Texas has to offer.. And Martin is another left-handed of... They already have 3 and most of their OF prospects are also lefties... Any OF they acquire has to switch or righty

Not terribly thrilled, but I think Kirk should get his chance this year. I think the kid has the makeup to adjust, but I can't say that I'm particularly bullish on him. Not too thrilled about Den Dekker either, for that matter, but I don't think these guys are as big a disaster as what we would be trotting out at the corners as currently constructed.

i like neweinheis.i think he has got alot of potential .i just dont really get excited when he comes to bat and i dont think he has much speed (does he?).id much rather have either a shortstop or center fielder that can lead off and steal 40 bags.now a left fielder,ok.

I understand your point, but I don't know that there are too many 40+ basestealers in the game. They have to get on base more than 40 times to steal more than 40 bases. I like Tejada at the top of the order, since I think that he works counts (which helps the next batters see more pitches) and gets on base, even though he doesn't steal bases. The thing I like about Kirk is that he has 15-20 hr potential, which have a better chance of turning into more runs than 40sbs. If you can get 15-20 out of him, then 20-25 out of Wright, 30 out of Ike, and maybe 25 out of Duda, then you really have the potential to punish a pitcher having an off-night. Especially if you can have Tejada and Murph getting on base in front of them. My batting order 1-6 would be Tejada, Murph, Wright, Ike, Duda, Kirk. Oh, and if we can add another middle of the order bat (like Myers), the lineup actually starts to look really strong with Duda moving to 6th and Kirk being your 7 or 8 hitter.
Of course, I would not be surprised to see Duda and Kirk do absolutely nothing, either. I was very disappointed in both of their seasons last year.

Drew Stubbs

I expect a Dickey trade. We could more than move him to the Reds once Greinke is signed for Stubbs, Boxburger, and (pipe dream alert!!!) Billy Hamilton....

More likely would be Stubbs and Boxburger, possibly a lower level prospect like Neftali Soto.
