2B is the only real defensive liability....
Yost has already come out and said Betancourt will get 3 starts a week or so and he is terrible, my guess is he steals AB from both MI and ends up playing 2 times a week in reality. Hosmer has been a below average defensive 1B so far. Moustakas looked decent last year but does not have a good defensive reputation so I'm not holding out hope. Cain has an ok reputation but I don't think he is much more than an average defensive CF. A bad defense is probably stretching things but it won't be a good one, not that the Astros had an amazing defense either.
If Betancourt plays more than twice a week there will be a riot....hell, if he plays twice a week even, their will be a riot.
Hosmer is average at worst
Mouse will probably just be average but that's not a liability
Cain will likely be above avg as well
I don't think they'll be great but they will be average to above average overall I'd guess.
