    Oh, that’s going to be a useful thing.

      ====================

      They’re about the same offensively this spring. The only advantage I see of Nieves over Stinnett is that Nieves is younger. Stinnett has much more experience than Nieves. With both, at this stage of their careers, WYSISYG.
