    A healthy Ronnie baker on the lead off leg replacing Rodgers might just be the ticket to a wr.

    I would keep Christian Coleman on the opening leg. He's too valuable there.

    I agree with DoubleRBar. Coleman is the best starter in the world & like Double R says Christian is too valuable on leadoff!! Baker (or whoever) can run 3rd leg.

    You may have missed it but when Coleman anchored the US in the 2017 World Championships 4x100 relay he actually lost the lead to the British anchor and we had to settle for silver. (8:15 minute mark)

    Coleman is the fastest starter and Lyles the fastest finisher.

    Nicely done, USA! Only hiccup was the last exchange, but I’m not upset with how conservative the approach was for both guys. This relay represents a changing of the guard for USA as Gatlin and Rodgers will almost certainly be replaced next year.

    Coleman-?-Holloway?-Lyles has the potential to bring the WR back home.

    Holloway would probably be a great replacement for Rodgers. He has great relay experience with University of Florida.

    What happened to the little guy that won bronze at Olympics (or was it Worlds?). Finished behind Dr Grasse in NCAA 100m and 200m. Sorry my memory isn't what it used to be.

    Is he permanently injured or moved on to another sport?

    Trayvon Bromell, bronze at Beijing 2015. Injury plagued. No 100m time in 2018, best of 10.54 this year.

    Wouldn't count on it.
