It's about time! I'm pretty shocked that the Padres actually did that, though. Hopefully that'll wake his @$$ up and start hitting.
WOW! I didn't realize that Josh was watching my postings so closely. I guess I'll have to post more often. lol
Great move Josh!
This is a golden opportunity for Yasmani Grandal....I hope he realizes it. If he simply catches and calls a good game and hits .260+ they will have no choice but to keep him at the MLB level. Hundley could be gone for good even if he starts hitting at AAA (which I think he will because of where it is).
Next up....Maybin. He had 2 meaningless hits last night to get him over .200. He needs to start coming through when it counts to keep him in the lineup and on the roster. DW
A Nick Hundley demotion was long over due. See how he performs as the most expensive AAA player we have
Truth is we are stocked full of 7 and 8 hole hitters. Glad we are giving the rookie a shot.
"Maybin is out of options. He isn't going anywhere."
It's weird to me that he is out of options but Hundley is/wasn't.
when guys marinate too long they begin to stew.....LOL
He's stepping up to the plate gripping the bat so tight that sawdust is falling around his feet.. He is trying so hard that everything to do with batting has become an effort.. every player I have ever talked to talks about having relaxed hands when they are in the box.
He is just completely pressing and that almost always leads to failure..
