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

So now are they trading Marsh?  

Why would that matter? With Peterson in RF, you have no room for Adell...that matters....

Then why bother to get him? Head scratcher to me....

Because you added a really good player who would have been our 2nd best player last year and that can also be traded at the deadline.
