It is interesting to see how we have been influenced by Keith Law and his SSS.Sometimes the eyes just see things whether short or long sample.I wonder what would happen if Morrison went somewhere (I would like to find out).Reed is trying my patience too.What happened with these two?
I have a difficult time with development, but that is with our young players, not necessarily those we just traded.Dozier is due for his hot streak and Escobar has been good all season, but both will be FAs.
But the young players who are yanked up and then dropped back down with lots of little SSS periods, a player like Gonsalves who has been ranked #3 but not in the order of promotions - what happens to him?We can say he does not look like he will make it in MLB, but we could say that about Slegers and still he has gotten some starts.
I do not like the patterns - the new guys immediately get playing time, those in the minors watch a lot of mediocre pickups play in MLB - how does that make them feel?I will continue to talk about Gardy playing Hicks and Goodrum and we gave them no opportunities, but play Bobby Wilson and Motter. Notice that J T Chargois is still on the Dodgers active roster.2 -3 3.14 ERA, 1.29 Whip, 33 games.He reminds me of the current batch of young relievers that we continually ignore so we can bring in Oliver Drake.
What is going on?
