I think he'll end up being the righty off the bench. I hope its Jenkins that is out, but highly doubt it, his contract is just too much to be able to trade. I think Stairs is as good as gone...its a shame, cause I'd like to have that lefty power off the bench. Its alright though, he did his job in the playoffs last year, all we needed from him was 1 hit in 1 AB, and he provided it.
Amaro is looking like a genius so far with the Golson-Mayberry trade however, I'm hoping we have a late-bloomer in Mayberry. He kinda reminds me of Howard when he was in the minors, if he can fix just a couple things with his approach, he will blow up. Howard had to be able to hit the high-inside fastball in order to be a successful MLB player, I'd say he's gotten that down.
I trust Manuel, if anyone can get Mayberry to refine his approach at the plate, its Charlie.
