    Alford is our 3b. He has been on a tear during summer ball. Along with Ledbetter. Both have been on fire…

    So I guess he's our plan "C" now that we struck out on others but at this point in the game it's a decent pickup. We're down to the nut cutting.

    With us losing the guys we did to the draft, there's room for a DH addition. And he hit 12 homers last year including one off the pitcher from Georgia in their regional that dominated us last year.

    His fielding percentage is not good (below .910 last year), so I definitely see this as more of a DH play than someone to take SS reps away from Forsythe. Forsythe fielded at .969 last year for comparison. And if he continues to improve his hitting like he did last year you can't take Forsythe out of the everyday.

    This is a good pickup and can provide us options.

    Whoa, love his hitting stats BUT 49 errors (in 2021 & 2022 combined) for a .894 fielding % is atrocious. But again, love the bat he brings to the team. Time will tell.

    He's from New Hampshire. That's gotta be a first for us......

    I'd try him out in LF if he can handle it.

    This is good pickup and we've been on him for awhile. He's been taking his time with this decision. This kid has pop and gets on base a lot, very good obp, something else he has great wheels and can run, 17 stolen bases this past year. Not great defensively, but he can hit and run. Good get.

    Don't forget about Dakota Jordan. He'll be in the mix as well.

    I'm guessing he'll play left field for us. Unless we get another outfielder in the portal. Which is very possible.

    More like DH. Career infielder, not sure how much defensively you'd get in outfield from him. Would probably be more of a liability out there. I'm sure he'll get a look out there but not sure how much we'd get defensively. Dudes a solid hitter though.
