that's not as funny as you might think...
1b: Ike davis
Ike is a safe bet for 30 hrs and GG caliber defense. His average will get better and I can definitely see a typical season for him being about .270 with 40 hrs and 120 rbis
Easily one of the most UNDERRATED players in baseball. He has great plate discipline who doesn't strike out much. He will hit for a good average around .300 and contribute 40+ doubles to the lineup. He will get better with his defense and if he can just be average defensively, he will be a very good player.
GG caliber defense. Can hit for a good average and expect it to be .290+. He too has great plate discipline and can work the count. He doesn't have much power obviously but can be a solid doubles hitter with at least 30-35 per year.
We know what we have here.
All he needs to do is hit for a decent average with 20+ hr power and good defense.
It certainly has the potential to be a great infield.
and thats not hard to believe? If D'Arnauld lives up to his hype he can be a top 3 or 4 catcher

"Not saying the kid won't develop and be good for 2014 but playing C is rough, he's got a larger learning curve is all. 2013 is too early to expect good things from the kid I think"
Willin Rosario hit .270 with 28 HRs as a rookie catcher last year and he was even younger than TDA will be in 2013.
You're comparing TDA with freaking Mike Trout? Good luck with that.
You tell me what #s this kid is going to put up. What do you think?
"You're comparing TDA with freaking Mike Trout? Good luck with that."
Trout ws one of the 2-3 best players in the majors last year, you are saying TDA won't be one of the 3-4 best catchers in the majors.
