    "Buck Eighty-six" was, at least by OPS, league average offensively at this position.


    Neither Florimon or Dozier have shown that much.

    Sorry Snepp, but that's not accurate. Laudner's OPS was 27th out of 50 for all catchers that year, but most of the players with worse OPS played much fewer games, so Timmy was close to the worst hitting regular catcher in baseball. And BTW, the Twins' other catcher, Mr. Butera (Sal, not Drew), had a much worse OPS that year, and they both batted south of .200. The other players' offense was simply amazing by 1987 standards, something the 2015-16 version of the team has at least a chance of repeating.

    Beresford is a better Escobar, though he may have to start at short if Santana isn't sticking there defensively.
    Not wanting to bash my fellow Aussie, but I'm not sure I get this. The only time Beresford has cracked a .700 OPS in 7 minor league seasons is when he's repeated a level (.711 2nd time around at Beloit, .721 in his second run at NBR). Doesn't give me any confidence he can swing a major league bat.
