Workman isn't on the 40.I'm thinking it's going to be either Workman or...gulp...Brewer with both already being on the 40 man if they go the reliever route. I'd love it to be Bazardo but his injury disqualifies him right now.
Yeah, I think it's likely chavis. I kind of find it funny that they sent him down knowing pretty well that Franchy's days were numbered, but he's not the first not will he be the last to ride the Merloni shuttle.Him and Brewer are literally the only 2 healthy option out of the 7 guys on the 40 outside of Jay Groome.
I think it's Chavis or Wilson.
What possible reason is there to bring back Chavis, when they have Gonzalez and Santana, and more importantly, when Chavis can't field a major league position and has a career whif % (33.2)very near to Franchy (35.3).Yeah, I think it's likely chavis. I kind of find it funny that they sent him down knowing pretty well that Franchy's days were numbered, but he's not the first not will he be the last to ride the Merloni shuttle.
Wilson or Arauz also are possibilities, but definitely not as likely.
Rovine Romine is popping the champagne.
Rovin Romine's long regional nightmare is over.
I consider it a victory for Truth, Rationality, and Justice. . .Yup.
As for the former, it really should be "Truth, Justice, and the Red Sox Way."I consider it a victory for Truth, Rationality, and Justice. . .
But watch him start hitting the snot out of the ball in AAA - you'll see me seamlessly pivot to join the "Free Franchy!" crowd, complete with Normandy Landing jokes.
I’m not sure that your claim is settled by next spring, but I like the Jimmy Fund. How about $10 if he isn’t on an MLB roster again this year or really in spring training camp (not just an invite as you said), and $10 more if he isn’t on an MLB roster at all in 2022?I'll go $10. See you next spring.
Let’s hope Javy Baez doesn’t lurk this board. He doesn’t need any more ideasIt's not even that he is unlucky, he just literally cannot get on base. He might have better chances if he just starts running to 1st base when he comes up to bat. I know you can't, but it would be hilarious if he tried.
Starting on the 31st (first Astros game) and running to the 14 (Toronto) there are huge possible swings in the standings. Those two weeks are potentially pivotal.I think it will be a pitcher playing the role of sacrificial lamb. They have a brutal run coming up after the Marlins. 7 against the 'Stros, 3 against the Yanks 4 vs the Jays, and then 2 against the Braves. Doesn't make much sense to bring up a positional player before then unless someone is dinged up.
I've never had an issue with them having extra pitchers around. It saves wear and tear on their actual useful pitchers.
What a beautiful swing when he connects. Tantalizing, extreme power like Wily Mo. The way the ball rockets off his bat is next level power. Unfortunately, he's less "hit" and a ton more "miss".
FWIW, in his last 15 PA in the big leagues, he slashed .333/.333/.733 with that monster HR in Philly. 0BB/3K.HR #3. Currently 2/3.
Going into today's game, he was slashing .333/.385/.708 in 26 AAA PA. 2bb/9k.
