It would seem to be almost the required move to offset Guerrier.

I would guess Fryer would be the other player to come off the 40 man, to make room for an outfielder, any outfielder

Suzuki just got HBP, we better hope he can stay in, otherwise look for a pitcher in the outfield with this lineup.

any word on Nuñez ? Did he get pulled over for speeding?

"Officer, I have to get to the stadium, we've only got 2 active outfielders!"
"That looks like a infielder's glove to me, son. Step out of the car please."

there's a fighting chance Kenny Wilson gets called up.


Kenny Wilson? He's my Adopt-a-Prospect and I'm obliged to speak up for him, but he's OPSing .595 at AA, with lots of strikeouts. and would get chewed up by major league pitching on a Butera/Florimon scale, and could contribute defensively.

Can they at least get Zukesie some pants that don't touch the ground? They're bordering on footie PJ territory. Is he shrinking due to overuse?

Anyone notice, Correia's ERA is below 6 now.

The other candidate would be Brooks Raley. The chances of him making it to Minnesota are rather slim, or should be slim. Although, with this management of the roster, you never know..

Sounds perfect. I mean, who's better on the bench: a player who's maybe marginally better defensively than the other solution at SS (Florimon over Escobar) or a player who has over 400+ more professional games CF than the incumbant (Wilson over Escobar).

If we're going to roster some subzero OPS+ players...Wilson is honestly a better fit currently than Florimon (or even Herrmann).

C'mon Escobar! A real center fielder would've had that one.

Of course I say this, then Corriea gives up a 2 run homer. Nice call!

What are the odds Guierrer gets in today? 100%?

The bullpen's a little beat up right now, it might be time to call up another reliever.

Brooks Raley DFA'd, claimed by Angels...
Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move'.

Yes. Whichever one is the best fielder and hitter.

Well lost Brooks Raley to the Angels
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Fangraphs says it's only the 382nd, but it sure seems like 400.
