I imagine they will be allowed to play in the AA all star game, then called up to Durham. I personally can't wait to see these 2 infielders live and in person.
What do you think the rays will do with them. I mean Aki is proving to be a stud 3B, Upton at 2B where are the 2 going to play
Still too early to say what their exact position will be. Longoria is solid defensively at 3rd, but depending on how well Aki does this year, will depend on whether Longoria moves over to 2nd or stays at 3rd. Brignac is the wild card imo. I honestly think we will be solid enough offensively with Upton, Delmon, Crawford, Baldelli, Longoria, Dukes, and probably Guzman, that we could afford a weaker hitter like Zobrist that will play very good defense. Reid imo only has 2 positions that he can play in SS and 3rd. 3rd is wrapped up imo, so it comes down to SS. I can see the DRO trading Reid for some pitching if Zobrist and his 6 errors and 270 BA is possibly better then Brignac and his 20 errors and 300 BA with power. Personally since we are in the East, I would keep him as we will need all the offense we can get going against the 100+ million dollar payrolls.
