I think that the Dodgers success, or lack thereof in 2012, will depend upon the Rookie at Short Stop. Will Dee Gordon be a 40/40 guy (40 SB’s and 40 errors or a 70/25 guy (70 SB’s and 25 errors)? If he gets 70 stolen bases, it will mean that he is playing, and if he is playing, it probably means that he’s got at least a .320 OB%. That probably won’t keep him in the lead-off spot however.
Dee will probably have to have a .330 or .340 on-base percentage (minimum) in order to hit lead-off.
What’s your prediction?
.270 BA – .335 OB% – 78 SB – 31 Errors
I can live with that… and so can the Dodgers.
What do you think Dee will do?
One more prediction: Will Logan White stay or be the GM in Houston?
I say, he’s gone!
Give James Loney a break – he’s been a good guy. He was drunk – move on – there’s nothing to see here folks.
