Then you could get rid of everybody!

He’s not that good on a consistent basis. They need to get rid of him, I don’t see how he can help this team.

This guy hasn’t shone anything in two years, and he never was that good. Harrison isn’t great, but is Inge any better? If they don’t like Harrison, give Mercer the spot.

Quality stuff with great sinking movement.

speaking of bullpen, anybody notice that Brad Lincoln got sent down to the minors by Toronto yesterday?

He was at 91.0 mph last year down from 93.7 in 2011.

I like Robinson too, have for 3 years now, but realistically he is blocked by so many here and his time is now or never.

Anyhow, I would cut Gomez, Morton to the 60 day.

Neither does anyone else since he’s never gotten a shot. Waiving a middle infielder does make some sense since now we have too many of them who are garbage. I can’t see Gomez sticking on the team for the whole year, so i’d go with him first. Leroux is going to be given a shot since he’s always pitched well and has ML experience. his velocity could increase as the season goes on anyways.

Depth at AAA is now to the point that I don’t know how he even gets ABs in Indianapolis. Mercer, IDJ and d’Arnaud are better options already.

Robinson is at least intriguing with the power potential.

Gomez is pure filler. Better options are flooding the market today among the XX (B) crowd.
