Some fans think anybody can play first base. Ever since Mat Gamel blew out his knee again in the Brewers' first full-squad workout, questions and suggestions have poured in from inquiring minds about that position. Why don't they put catcher Jonathan Lucroy at first base? Can't catcher Martin Maldonado play first? What about moving lithe, speedy outfielder Logan Schafer to first base? (I'm not making that up). Shouldn't the Brewers move Caleb Gindl to first base? In response to that last question, I would suggest that moving 5-foot-7 outfielders to first base is seldom part of a team's blueprint if not actually prohibited by law. The latest clamor from Brewer Nation is for the team's brain trust to move Khris Davis to first base - immediately. The outfield prospect has been putting on a major power display during Cactus League action and many fans have decided he should be the team's new first baseman.
Who's on first? It's Alex Gonzalez for now
