Agree on Gio and while there’s no doubt DJ had a great year I’m guessing he won’t be far off. Remember he won a batting title in 2016 with a very high average he’s a good hitter. All the numbers could be hard to repeat but he will be close if healthy. Add a JD Martinez type where you can count on .290-.310/30/100 and they will all improve a little, see better pitches. Also would love a real lead off hitter to put DJ 2nd and Judge 3rd in the order. I’m not talking Hicks or Gardner either, someone consistent with a .380-.400 OBP who can steal a base. Not sure who that is but we can use him. Lolnot sure I’d be counting on DJ or Gio to repeat their 2019s.
But yes not getting a starter at the deadline was a bit of a head scratcher.
