I've been surprised maybe a couple of times by call ups, but Ober isn't getting called up... but I agree.. AFL would make sense.
I mean, I agree with you that it would be incredibly surprising to see him called up, but.... why not? Obviously we've got some 40-man implications, but for a second let's just ignore those.
Ober has never not dominated. Never. The only thing is, he can't stay healthy. Maybe he's injury prone, maybe he's just been really unlucky, but right now, he's healthy. Once someone is making a joke of AA, then for me, it's time to try them out in the majors.
Maybe the guy's body has 1000 good innings in it. Then let's get as many of those 1000 at the major league level as possible
