Too bad his agent’s a douche, otherwise he could’ve actually gotten there sooner.

Nobody saw him falling to this spot, have to like the depth for Starters in the minors now – no doubt about it.

Also I think Allie as a hitter was probably the right move right now, from things I read seemed like his heart was not in pitching the way it was in hitting.

Timing is everything. Anyway, making him a hitter is a stroke of genius now.

But what I said was, I realize the staff is still going to need some time to work with him, but wouldn’t it almost be a waste of time for him to go against that level of competition?
