Today on the show we're revealing the hitters we typically avoid in 2020 but first, Adam explains how to identify those hitters. Catcher is generally a lackluster position but who are we avoiding there (3:37 )? Both players actually come from pretty potent offenses. ... At first base, we're mostly avoiding power bats (7:48 ). Adam isn't buying in on one of Frank's favorite hitters. ... Why should you avoid Whit Merrifield this season (17:19 )? ... At third base, Scott and Frank agree on Kris Bryant (23:34 ). Adam is out on Rafael Devers as a third-round pick. ... Of course, Manny Machado is a popular answer at both third base and shortstop (27:14 ). Frank once again tries to defend Machado. Carlos Correa is somebody who's consistently dealt with injuries and that can hurt you more with a shortened season. ... Who are the outfielders you shouldn't draft in 2020 (38:57 )? ... Why is Adam out on Victor Robles. The guys also seem split on what to do with Eloy Jimenez. ... We wrap up with a brief conversation on Joey Gallo and why Chris hasn't typically drafted him (55:11 ). ... Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
