Pedro has to go down to AAA.  He has no idea of what he’s doing or what is going on.  He is learning nothing at the MLB level right now.

I would bring up Mercer and playing him regularly at short, making Barmes the utility guy.  Then I would move McGehee to third and platoon Jones and Hague at first.  The defense might suffer but the defense isn’t winning any games any way.

So isnt drunk driving. Thats sarsasm and not meant to be mean. Pedro has the best HR power on the team. He needs AB’s and games played more than anyone on the team. I think you’ll see Harrison go, I think Navarro is a Rule 5 and if he gets shipped to AAA other teams can pick him up. I believe Harrison and Hague have options.

Either Matt Hague, Josh Harrison or Yamaico Navarro will be optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis in order to make room for Morton on the 25-man roster.”

I wouldn’t rule out Alvarez going down.
