Vic's Got Gigantic Teeth.....And He Can Hit!

Postby PackLandVA » Thu Jun 13, 2019 12:22 am

Ol' "Teeth" needs to be in the line up more. He's been hitting and getting on base. Spell Willson once or twice a week. Stick him at 3rd or maybe 1st on occasion. And maybe put him in LF against tough lefties to spell Schwarbs.

He was a second rounder from an organization that has a pretty good track record of scouting/developing talent. I know it doesn't mean much, but it does mean Atlanta thought the guy had talent. He's getting on base, so I say - ride him out until he plays himself out of the line up (if that even happens). No, I'm not suggesting he play every day. But I certainly think a couple times a week minimum would be a good start.

Would it make sense to offer him the Bote contract?

VC had a .620 career OPS entering this season and the Cubs have 4 more years of team control. I think they can wait a bit to see how real this offensive surge is before discussing an extension.

I wouldn’t mind reading that he’s been taking fly balls in the outfield.

with Caratini hitting like he is, we might have the best 1-2 catcher tandem in the league. Does he have trade value?

Agreed; Contreras doing that makes MUCH more sense.

I’d say this thread isn’t aging well, but it really hasn’t even begun to age at all and it’s pretty clear it’s very WRONG!
