I think it’s more of a “C’mon May we need you” message to May.
I think intentionally leaving a floundering Trevor May in there for fans to endure nearly 50 of his pitches was about as "adamantly" polite a message as Rocco could possibly send.
The message that he sends to the front office is “I don’t want to use Stewart” and he was all I had left.
The dangerous part of this... who do they send down for another arm and will that arm be trusted and who would that be?
If Arraez gets sent down because he is the guy with options to provide an emergency arm that Baldelli also don’t trust. You’ve weakened the offense and gained very little.
A trade for pitching couldn’t happen soon enough but if you pull the trigger now. There will probably be an overpay involved because everyone is working every room at the moment waiting for a team to get desperate.
We are going to have to ride it out.
