    Good stuff. The one roster spot I question involves Darin Erstad. I shuffle Salmon into the OF, Don Baylor takes Erstad’s spot, then face the dilemma who is the DH: Davis or Baylor.

    Good staff for a franchise with a shorter history than many teams.

    It’s really the glove that keeps him in the lineup for me.
