Pederson/Stripling deal is DEAD. MOVE ON.

Recommended Posts

Sorry, this makes no sense.  We have OF depth. Pederson is out of contract at seasons end and will be after best $$$. Pederson holds up Adell and Marsh and does nothing to assist our SP issues.

I don't get it. It either means:

*They're trading Upton. Unlikely.

*He's starting in RF. Most likely, but it means they don't believe in Adell for 2020. Goodwin as 4th outfielder.

*1B/DH. Also possible, if a bit less likely.  This would mean Pujols is finally benched. No Thaiss/Walsh/Ward.

Anyhow, it does improve the offense, but I'll miss seeing what could  become of Rengifo. It is still to be determined whether he's Jean Segura or Sean Rodriguez.

On further thought, I think its a combination of the 2nd and 3rd options. Pederson starts the year in RF. If/when Adell is ready, he pushes Pujols to the bench. By year's end we have the following lineup:

2B Fletcher

CF Trout

3B Rendon

1B Pederson

DH Ohtani/Upton

LF Upton/Marsh

RF Adell

SS Simmons

C Castro
