You’ll see a .300 20 HR 70 or 80 RBI’s … The most any team can get from him.

Anything is and wouldn’t shock me 1 bit to see him starting at 3b come opening day.. FAR sight better than watching Bonifacio attempt 3b again.

Low risk, medium reward signing and I like it. If the power comes back, Kouz has the chance to be a 20 HR/30 2B guy with a solid glove. You’ll take that for $500K or whatever he’s going to get.

Yeah, and a hideous OBP with a mediocre at best BA.
