Brown? Profar? Who?

This does not apply to God, however. God truly sees what is; humans speculate about what is.

Grossman’s hamate injury generates explanatory force with respect to his hitting problems this season. That’s my claim.

Or is all this just speculation on your part?

While I wouldn’t mind if D Brown was in our org, we ain’t gonna trade DMac to get him.

It has been reported that the Phillies haven’t given up on Brown. They want him to work on his game in AAA.

Hamate injuries do undermine a hitter’s ability to drive the ball. So……

Sure, he has potential but not if it means giving up JMac. I live near Philly and for all the injuries they’ve had, they haven’t felt compelled to bring up D Brown.

And D Brown ain’t a slam dunk either. You do know that he is hitting all of .269 with only 4 HRs. How is that gonna help us?
