Let's cut Palka some slack. He had to deal with an injury this year, and he's coming off a 34 HR season. I'd take him over Vargas.
I'm not sure what any of that has to do with what I posted.
I didn't call for his execution, I simply gave a valid reason why he's not getting a September call up.
Regardless of the "why" behind his poor performance, the numbers don't show a player who is going to help the club. For example, if he's putting up poor numbers because he's playing hurt, then you wouldn't want him up here trying to get his feet wet while injured.
I'm also not sure what Vargas has to do with Palka. Vargas is a switch hitter and they don't even play the same position.
As to the no longer a prospect comment, I clearly stated that was my opinion. I'm not required to cut him any slack for my opinion. If he was playing injured, then sure that might change my opinion, but is there any evidence that he was?
Just because he also missed time with an injury, doesn't mean he wasn't healthy when he did play.
