Dang, still? Thought they would have cleared that up much sooner??

 

Please discuss Romero here:

This thread is about Thorpe.

I think it is good to remind ourselves that these players are human beings with families who run into issues much like us. It won't do much good to speculate, but perhaps the distraction of an issue in Australia is more of a disruption that leaving camp to deal with it. 

 

Again, like Romero, Thorpe has options remaining and it won't be the end of the world if he is optioned and he could easily pitch himself back to the major league club at some point in the season. 

Exactly.Absolutely nothing hurt if they both start in AAA as depth

Wow, with all that flight time he had what a day and a half there? Glad (hope) it is resolved.

 

{edit} If he was taking time off to talk with his parents who came here (note below), than that makes more sense.Hope all is well with him.

Glad to hear it. I hope whatever it was, that the situation was resolved positively.

Parents came here to visit. No clarification made other than needing personal time to get himself right.

Reusse made some non-specific comments on the "Baseball with Reusse" podcast. (SKOR North).

 

I inferred a lot from them, but wont put my speculation here.

Yeah, I had a great chat with his parents on Monday morning. We were watching Lewis throw in the bullpen and talked for a good 15 minutes. Good people. Saw them again on the back fields yesterday (Tuesday).
