I don't even know what to think about Smoak. Dude is mashing and has been.
It seems he does this with us. Sucks all year but starts saving some face toward the end of the year.

He's still cheap, so it's worth a shot to see him with the new swing from the left side all year. Make Jaso our starting catcher next year, Montero in a Mike Napoli role and let him focus only on hitting. If Zunino is still swinging it in AAA, and Smoak is sucking, then have Montero as our 1B/DH and Jaso and Zunino at C. With whoever isn't catching at DH or 1B.

This organization is completely pathetic if Smoak is pencilled in as a starter to begin next season.

Smoak should have to tear the cover off the ball for the rest of the season, & spring training to just make the team. I'll be disgusted if he's thrown out there on a regular basis next year.


Who else, though? I mean, if they're going to make Montero the 1B then I'm fine with it, but if not, who?

Jimenez? Carp? I'd rather stick with Smoak for a month or two than that.

But there's really no one in FA. As for trade, who knows.

Calling the Cards about Carpenter/Adams seems like an obvious move. Maybe Ike Davis... if the Mets actually move him.

Add 1 of those guys, and mix Montero in there.

Realistically who would you guys give up for a Adams or Carpenter? I don't think Adams has a future with the Cardinals with Craig at first base and his defense would be laughable in a corner spot which our OF is basically decided for a couple years with Holliday and Jay up now and Taveras starting in 2014.

Depending on our future plans with Corey Hart, Mat Gamel could be had in a trade.

I think a MLB reliever like Shawn Kelley & a mid-tier prospect (Guillermo Pimentel/Francisco Martinez type) would be fair.

Both those homers are clear examples of the swing change. So much quicker.

He still can't hit a curve ball, though.
