Friedman's really gambling here

By: Torpedoman

To start the season with Barnes/Martin behind the plate. My GUESS.. is that the FO has to believe that Barnes' soph slump in over, and if he actually comes to ST healthy this season, that he can be the kind of player that out performend Grandal, post all star break in both 17 and 18, by being the primary C. Big IF for sure. I know that Smith is still young, but if he as a stellar spring training, look out.. they do project him debuting, sometime this season anyway.. as Ruiz and Cartaya mature and develop.  Cant tell ya how much I'd hoped that we would have pulled the string for Realmuto... Now... is the FO even interested at all, in maybe a Kluber deal?
