Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold up there, buckaroo. Let's not get ahead of ourselves, we still have 2 games before the break to rack up errors, GIDP, earned runs, wild pitches, and strikeouts. Depending on how big that proverbial cliff we're on is, we may just manage to run ourselves into a triple play, as well!

I like him as a 7-8 hitter on a good team. I think he'd be exposed as a middle of the lineup hitter on a bad team.


A defense first 2nd baseman with the arm to play on the left side and power top hit 25hr is pretty valuable. I remember our first game in Baltimore this year after he was traded to the brewers last year. The fans gave him a standing ovation. Figured he must be well liked and respected. Not so much here. Our fans hate making hard contact resulting in double plays. Shame. The guys the type of good natured pros pro that help keep losing steaks short. 2 games to be exact....

Perez regaining his mojo would be huge for this rotation. His last start against the Rays was huge, another would be even huger.

 

Yuge even.
