Of course LaRoche the Younger isn't the long-term option at third. They haven't been grooming Walker these past 3 years as a third baseman for nothing. However, if he does not show more improvement this season (not saying he won't), then Alvarez will be the man at third in the future. I am hoping that LaRoche the Younger has a good year so that he brings something decent back in a trade, same goes for his brother.
