yeah, not sure why it keeps coming up to trade one of them. I haven't followed the season closely but i thought they were happy with the platoon. I read Dipoto saying that, that was what they were after. We picked up Narvaez at the end of November, just think it be that kind of a trade, where a team gets a chance to build their lineup around it
My thinking is they may keep both until Raleigh is ready. They also may want to make sure Murphy isn't a 1 year wonder before making him the guy

That is definitely the reason to keep both. On the other hand you might want to sell high on Murphy if you can tolerate Omar's sketchy D.

do they?...or maybe they have a real good platoon, and catcher seems like about as good a position there is to platoon. What they put up, like 5.2 fWAR. You break that in half to try and improve the team...i don't know, like i said, haven't really followed it

Well people keep wanting to trade from a position of strength. Here's our big chance. We have two starting catchers.
This of course makes either guy easier to part with if the price is right. Neither player has reached what we hope is his potential so I would be happy to see both guys get 400 ABs next year in order to see them gain value while giving us time to find the best offers.

I'm a bit more optimistic at this point. Dipoto has until pitchers and catchers report to crush that of course.

I don't think Servais is hurting us all that much as a manager.

I see a very young team next year with Haniger and Seager leading the squad to be pretty competitive until August.

The rotation is the major concern for me at this point.

Ayala had the pics on Lou. Servais has the pics on Dipoto.
