Izturis has not had a good spring, unusually shaky with the glove. If he can't field, he's Yuni-level worthless.
Unfortunately, everyone needs INF depth right now, and there just doesn't seem to be enough to go around. *sigh* shuda kept jayjay
World Series MVP!!!
The Baltimore Orioles lost to a community college today...seriously.
Yes, they had most of their everyday lineup, a major league SP, and two notable relievers. Lost to State College of Florida, 2-1.
It's embarrassing. They aren't really an awful team either, they just are significantly worse than the rest of the powerhouses in the AL East that their record reflects on them as god awfu.
You either gotta pay the bills or scout like mad in that division.
Major stunner: Brewers send Conrad to AAA, giving Ishikawa the final roster spot.
Bit of a head scratcher, to be honest.
I guess they did it so they have a decent plan b for if Gamel doesn't pan out.
Decent defensive plan b that is
Meh. We're talking about the 25th man on the roster. It's not like Conrad is gone, he's just in the minors. If Ishi doesn't work out, we can always call him up.
BTW, what happened to Jay Gibbons? We signed him to a minor league deal, but I didn't see his name on the Nashville roster.
Yeah, that is true. If all I have to <bitch about is the last roster spot things are looking pretty good.
I can't wait for the season to start. Classes are crazy hectic right now and I need something to give me a nice distraction from time to time. The roller coaster of "we're going to win it all to cliff jumping" is just the thing I need.
Good point. The bench players now don't matter since they're ever changing because of injury, Conrad and Maysonet are one call away.
The speculation I read last night is maybe they're just trying to cover their bases with Hart because they don't want to push him too hard right away, and Ishikawa can play a little OF as well as 1B in case they need someone extra.
I haven't heard anything about Jay Gibbons, but he's pretty much option number 4 after Schafer, Gindl, and Patterson anyway.
