Had to laugh at the comment that a good spring could land him the starting 3b job come opening day.

IMO only a complete collapse of a spring could keep him out of the starting lineup given the relative lack of competition.

But what of Mark Teahen???

I have little doubt Omar Vizquel will see plenty of starts at third.

He's not a prospect yet.

Is this an editorial comment on Morel, on Ozzie, and/or on Vizquel?

I think it's more of a comment about Kenny.

Are you insinuating that Daver is insinuating that Morel will be dealt? :tongue:

Huge fan of Lonnie Chisenhall.

Aside from him and Moose that list is rather underwhelming. Sox/Royals games will be much more entertaining when KC starts calling up Moustakas and others from their treasure-trove of prospects.

Moustakas isn't that the Greek Lasagna?

I think it's a comment on Ozzie. But, I'll let Daver speak for himself.

Intersting to note that all five AL Central teams have a top 10 3B prospect including four of the five top slots...

For what its worth I think Morel has goods hands and will be a solid all around third baseman; splitting time with an old pro like Vizquel will really hellp ease his development..

Jor-El
Kal-El
Mor-El

It just makes sense.

Vizquel is my choice for the 2011 version of Ozzie's overused veteran of the year.

Our manager is not allowed to use his bench?? Can we not do this again this year?

Few players in the majors play all 162 games. Vizquel will have plenty of opportunities to play.

I have no problem with Vizquel getting plenty of starts at 3B to "break in" Morel to his first full MLB season.

Why? Because although he is old, Vizquel still actually plays third base well.

OTOH, if Ozzie benches both Morel and Vizquel to give Mark "the 3B version of Rob Mackowiak in CF" Teahen lots of starts at third, then I'll object.

I don't think you are going to see LOTS of Teahen at third but I suspect he will get some starts there.
