What does the future hold?
I am now working on the Milwaukee Brewers Top 20 prospects list for 2018. The next team in line is the Tampa Bay Rays, to be followed by the San Francisco Giants, Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays, and finally the St. Louis Cardinals to finish the process.
Use this thread to discuss the Tampa Bay Rays organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
****The Rays finished 80-82 in 2017, third place in the American League Eastern Division. With an apparent rebuild in progress, how bad (or good?) do you expect things to get in 2018? Can they stay around .500?
****Are you satisfied with the returns gained in trades so far?
****Do you have any hope for Daniel Robertson as a hitter?
****Expectations going forward for Jake Faria?
****Same question for Chih-Wei Hu and Jose Alvarado?
****Lay out your plan for top Rays prospects like Brent Honeywell, Christian Arroyo, Jake Bauers, and Willie Adames.
****As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Rays-oriented.
