Their three veteran signees (Narvaez, Smoak, and Brock Holt) are currently 41 for 244 (.168) with 7 HRs and 25 RBIs. They were supposed to replace Grandal, Moustakas, and Thames. The front office just completely whiffed on those decisions this offseason.
if they dump +$30M on Moustakas and Grandal this and the next 3 years and Gyorko hits more HRs than both for $4M... they would be completely f’d until they got rid of those contracts. Smoak was a shot in the dark. Navaez a whiff. Holt... bleh. In 2023 when the prospects all come up and Hiura is hitting his stride... potentially potent lineup.
