Yeah -- I guess, but with those two, I can also see playing it straight and going for all the pitching categories as well since they'll both rack up whiffs. You may get beat in ratios by a team that focuses on them, but you'll have a chance at sweeping everyone else.

Any concerns with Aaron "OJT" Boone at the helm wrt team chemistry and how it affects player's performances? If I can trade for Severino (most likely have to give up Sanchez for him) I'd also have Bird and Didi as two more keepers. And then again maybe it's much todo about nothing. Would have preferrred Giardi to remain vs an unknown.

No - You're way overthinking.

You can't say right now ...generalities indicate the old saw young manager relate to young player better ... but how do you know with a guy who has never managed before?
These are my views based on my own opinions and observations - your mileage may vary.
