So how's it look at this point heading into 2021 ...

Catcher appears to a platoon situation with McCann .244/.304/.404, 15 HR (1 @ C) facing LHP and being a D replacement for Sisco* .232/.334/.391, 13 HR (-7 @ C) facing RHP.

As does 1B with Nogowski .239/.339/.375 (7 @ 1B) facing LHP and being a D replacement for Choi* .245/.344/.433, 15 HR (-2 @ 1B) facing RHP.. Got some really decent OBP out of this platoon.

Madrigal .290/.335/.368, 17 SB (6 @ 2B) ... no power but otherwise solid 2B. Doesn't strike out so will be probably batting second in the lineup.

Really think Riley .239/.297/.461, 26 HR (-3 @ 3B) is going to break out this year.

My very favorite player in the MLB ... Anderson .291/.318/.471, 23 HR, 18 SB (-7 @ SS). The D on the left side of my infield is bothersome ... the O is not.

Happy with starting infield and will find solid reserve/D replacements between Guillorme* .256/.337/.345 (2 @ 2B), Wendle* .256/.306/.380, 13 SB (4 @ 2B), Bote .230/.318/.413, 16 HR (1 @ 2B), Vargas .242/.296/.364 (0 @ 3B) (BA LAD #9, BP LAD #3, FG LAD #13) or Adrianza# .241/.311/.363 (-3 @ SS).

Garcia .269/.328/.428, 16 HR (0 @ RF) and Santander# .267/.308/.489, 28 HR (3 @ RF) will be my primary COF with Haseley* .248/.312/.369 (-2 @ CF) in the middle. I expect Kwan* .258/.310/.356, 10 SB (2 @ CF) (FG CLE #48) and Engel .227/.283/.372, 11 HR, 10 SB (3 @ CF) will be 4/5 OF and D replacements.

DH will be Hernandez, Y.* .255/.320/.436, 16 HRs (-3 @ LF) against RHP and one of the above against LHP ...

As far as position players go, I have improved my OBP and should have more power then 2020. The infield is my strongest unit.

Starting pitching is basically a bunch of guys who are mid rotation guys with no ace which I know is not good: Some combination of Gonzalez, G.* 4.35, 127/61 (132.3) 103 ERA+, Davies 4.17, 112/47 (153.2) 102 ERA+, Walker 4.41, 86/36 (100.0) 102 ERA+, Keller 4.45, 124/63 (165.7) 101 ERA+, Freeland* 5.07, 113/58 (149.0) 101 ERA+, Dunning 4.41, 81/36 (87.7) 100 ERA+ (BA CWS #4, BP CWS #5) and Hudson 4.34, 121/60 (155.7) 99 ERA+ will see the preponderance of GS.

The bullpen of Bleier* 3.64, 29/9 (47.0) 118 ERA+, Diehl* 5.13, 61/25 (59.7) 100 ERA+, Heuer 4.01, 59/22 (67.3) 111 ERA+ (BP CWS #9), Johnson 4.18, 62/25 (60.3) 107 ERA+ (FG CWS #22), Trivino 3.96, 63/31 (63.7), 107 ERA+ is okay and very dependent on the health of Oberg 3.88, 58/21 (55.7) 132 ERA+ as the closer.

Should be more competitive in more games in 2021 but likely still the 3rd place team in the tough AL Central.
