    Cesar Puello DFA'd

    This was why I was so bothered by the move. I didn't want to see puello go. However there was no "good choice", Upton had to be activated. I really believe we could have gotten so.ething solid for Puello had this gone down a month later.
  2. I agree our pitching problems can be solved in house. However overall the staff has to pitch better. I love Canning and Suarez. However they are inexperienced and cant pitch deep into games. Skaggs and heaney but primarily Skaggs needs to pitch better. He is capable. He needs to do it. Pena needs to pitch better. I would have given a better chance to Barria as he proved to be a solid back end starter last year. We do have help coming with Middleton and JC Ramirez coming back
  3. It will continue to be sub 500 until our starting pitching improves.

    Without Tovar Fletcher is SS, La Stella 3b Rengifro 2nd Who is the back up? Cozart may have an actual injury and not a fake one so many assume.
  5. I like Ward as a back up over Rengifro.
  6. Cherry pick. If he is not playing everyday he should be in AAA. Was Trout a back up hist first call up? Before his slump his OPS was close to 700. 9 games from now he could be right back up there. You know damn well. Baseball is a game of streaks. Now I dont know if Rengifro will end up being a major league starter but to regulate him as a back up so early in his first season is ignorant

    I address in a later thread.
  8. Ok I buy that one. Then send Rengifro down, bring up someone else to ride pine as an backup infielder.
  9. That explains why Tovar is on the 25 man roster. Explain why he is starting every F'n game.

    Not arguing. It still supports the argument that we cant DFA a bullpen piece in order in order to keep Puello
  11. Why is Tovar starting every game? Why is Rengifro benched....send him back down to AAA if that's the case.

    Jared Walsh and Hermosillo are on the 20l5 man roster?

    Who are the other 20? We couldnt DFA a starter. Our pen is over used as is. It would have been reckless to go with a relievers short. Could have DFA Tovar but that would be a gamble as Pijols would have to backup 3b.

    I think teams valued him. But they knew he was going to be released because of Upton. Had Upton got activated in July I believe we would have been able to make the trade. Doesn't matter As I said it we had no good options. Upton had to be reinstated and we had no infield depth and both Goodwin and Puello played well. I would have been just as pissed if we let Goodwin go.
