Lawton by about 10000 miles.
At least Lawton has a decent track record of getting some homers and steals. I really hope he brings that to the table for my Pirates.
Tike Redman is garbage - he can steal, but never does. He can't hit or draw walks, so they can't even use his speed as a #1 hitter. If he starts (which I hope he doesn't), he'll probably be in the 8 hole (pretty close to what I think of him
). I think there's about 0 chance he gets 20 steals. He's going to steal with the pitcher up next? Doubt it. He'll be bunted over every time if he does manage to get on base.
I am hoping this is Tike's last year in Buccoland. We have 2 or 3 guys in the minors who are about ready to get a shot. I don't want them to, but they should stick Bay in CF, Lawton in LF, and either Craig Wilson, Mackoviak, or trade for a RF before the season starts...and I doubt that will happen at this point.
