Default Your Top Three Questions Heading Into Spring Training


1 - Who is your starting catcher?
2 - Who is your #3 starter (i.e., what does John Danks look like)?
3 - Who is your left fielder?

Honorable mention: how do you maintain any flexibility on your bench with Abreu, Konerko, and Dunn (and Dayan if DeAza is your left fielder) on your 25 man roster?
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A. Bartlett Giamatti

  1. Who is the starting catcher? (hopefully via trade- not the crap we currently have as options, can Nieto make the team and push either Phegley or Flowers to AAA?)
  2. Who is our closer?
  3. We need a top of rotation (#2) RHP- can Johnson or Paulino fill that role (long shot)
Players that are an important part of the rebuild:
Anderson, Fulmer, Giolito, Lopez, Moncada
Players that might be or could have trade value:
Abreu, Bummer, Davidson, Fry, A. Garcia, Jones, Sanchez

Starting catcher is probably the biggest question, but I feel like it doesn't really matter as none of the options are very good.

For me its:

1. Who will be the 5th starter? - Sale, Quintana, Danks, Johnson pretty much sound like locks to me.

2. 3B - Can Davidson begin the season as the starter or do we have to suffer through Kepp and Gillaspie for awhile?

3. Abreu/Eaton/Garcia/Davidson - I want to see how the new guys look.

Who am I?
What planet is this?
How did I get here?

oh sorry... you meant baseball related questions?

What is going on with our catching situation?
How is the team going to use all the 1B/DH types they have on the roster?
How many years does the team feel it will take to get back to the top of the division?

1) Does Johnny Danks have his velocity back now that he is more than 18 months removed from surgery?

2) How will the Keppinger/Gillaspie/Davidson log jam at 3B resolve itself?

3) Who is the starting catcher?

1. Will the snow be melted by Opening Day?
2. Will it at least be in the 40's on Opening Day?
3. Will I find affordable tickets for Opening Day?

1. Starting catcher.
2. Can Todd Steverson teach these guys how to hit?
3. Which right-handed starter will step-up?
