No question, Brookings >> Mays. However, at least from a pure physical skills perspective, DJ >> Brookings. Brookings is smart and a leader, but historically that describes DJ as well.
We would be faster and stronger with DJ on the field. Will that make us better? idk. But it's certainly worth checking out.
They are not going to just slam DJ into the starting role. I am pretty sure he will start rotating in on a very limited basis starting with SD and then see where it goes. If they play worse with him in then he will get less time and vs vs.
I suspect he will be starting MLB by the playoffs and it will be because we are a better D with him in there. And we shall see.
