Sure, Bruce COULD well certainly continue to disappoint, making him, I’m sure, pretty high on everyone’s radar in this preview of ours.

I have to go with Lucas Duda, and it pains me to say so. I have a “The Duda” jersey, for crying out loud (no really, that’s EXACTLY what it says.)

We’ve been waiting since 2011 for consistency from this guy, and we unfortunately haven’t found it. We saw one-half season where he was on fire from June onward, but even though hit 27 homers in 2015, it was way too streaky to call consistent.

Whether it will be ineffectiveness from how injured he’s been lately or injuries that totally take him out of the picture, I’m not high on  Duda’s ability to provide what we need at 1st base… and we all know he I think will eventually take the helm at the position.
