The discussion in the IPF fanpost got me thinking ahead to next years OF. Given JR's obsesion with Tabata, Cutch's pedigree, and McLouth's contract + recent success, where does this leave Moss. Does he have to break out this year, his first full season starting, to keep from being 4th OF? Obviously if he has the kind of numbers like he did last year, he's not going to get a real chance next year, but I'm talking he has an OK year. Say a .250-.260 BA 20-25HRs 50-65 Rbis, and both Tabata and Cutch have good years. What do you think the club will do? I'm thinking he then goes to 1st to compete/platoon with Pearce. Even tougher is if Moss has a good year, Tabata kills the ball, and Cutch has injuries/ and doesn't do so well, or vice versa. Alot of speculation here, but this is the stuff good organizations have to wonder about all the time with there prospects, and it sure is fun wondering how the Bucs are going to fit all the talent they got on the field.
