I’d really rather see Mike Olt at 3rd..better defender, and even he doesn’t strike out as much as Bryant..and that really bugs me..his lack of contact is very frustrating. He needs to adjust his stance..open up a bit, because he has holes in his swing that don’t need to be there.I’d also rather see Junior Lake, Bryant and Soler in the OF..Dexter Fowler has done what exactly..to stay in CF? This team isn’t good enough to win anything yet so why not let the young guys play and learn together? Have Coghlan come off the bench..hell, even move Castro to 2nd..or just move him..period..get a real closer like..well..NOT Soriano..that was a bad move..Strop has had his bad games and bad luck.but I still think he’s the best guy for the closer role until they can land a Chapman or Kimbrel.
