MARCUS SEMIEN RUMORS

Outsiders noticing determination, focus of A's Semien on improving defense

Marcus Semien is definitely a work in progress. The Oakland Athletics shortstop hit the All-Star break having committed a ghastly 28 errors as he adjusts to the rigors of being a full-time player at the position.

At a lazy spring pre-game meeting with Bob Melvin a few weeks back, he mentioned off-hand that Marcus Semien wasn’t going to play every day. For half a second, it seemed we had a bit of a scoop on our hands, an emerging platoon at shortstop for the Athletics. But then, that was worth a […]

Oakland A’s acquisition rumors: Second base edition

Even though the Oakland A’s have made some major moves this offseason, their middle infield is still weak. With youngster Marcus Semien projected to be the everyday starting shortstop, second base will most likely be platooned by Eric Sogard and Andy Parrino.

Marcus Semien, the Next Matt Carpenter

Last year there was not one player I was making sure I had on my fantasy teams more than Matt Carpenter. Thankfully most of my leagues are keeper or dynasty leagues so I have Carpenter not only for last year’s magnificent season but at a super low price going forward. Most anyone who drafted Carpenter on their own or took my advice to draft him were extremely happy with getting...
