Wooohooooo!!!!!
I wouldn’t have cared if they called up Mario Mendoza to replace him. Heck, even my wooden-legged great Uncle Larry would have been fine with me. It’s about accountability, Pirates management…Remember?
If you suck, you should not be on the team. Period.

The former especially needs work.

I’m in the camp of wanting to see him be more consistent, but if he’s well over .300 for a month and a half, I think it’s time.

What does he have to do to earn a promotion?

He looked a lot smoother than Cutch. I will say it was a SSS.

He’d have to sit a few days next week so why not let him play in AAA and call him up immediately after the break.

They need to get him more reps in RF before he comes up. Once Barajas is completely healthy (probably after the allstar break), I see Fryer being sent down and Marte being promoted.

But if I had to choose between Gorkys and Marte based on their current numbers and how well they are playing the past month or so, no question it is Marte. Perhaps this shows a lack of understanding on my part (which is quite possible) but I think Marte should have been called up as opposed to Gorkys.
