Can¨t we just be happy for one day and give Clint credit for doing the right thing? Showing confidence in starting Mercer the 1st night he¨s up, and doing it at SS… Come on, you think Hurdle wnats to lose this game to prove Mercer does not belong? Too much conspiracy stuff for me :)

So now when Jordy goes 0-4 Hurdle can say, “see, there’s a steep dropoff there, blah, blah, blah, and that’s the beauty of this game.”

He has earned the right to be in Pittsburgh right now. And he’s starting today at SS, love it! Granted Harrison has been raking the ball lately but he’s had TONS more opportunities to play, it’s Mercer’s turn to get a shot at sticking in the big leagues! Welcome back Jordy!

Play him at 2B or 3B against lefties. Play him 2x a week at short, get him in the lineup 4 times out of every 6 or 7. Will be very interesting to see how they use him. I want to see him play SS and see the difference in quality for myself. As much as I cannot stand watching Barmes hit, it seems he is punching the ball around the field lately.

Two weeks to sit on the bench and vegetate. He does get to breath major league air though!

Did McDonald get hurt reaching foor the sunflower seeds? At least we know Mercer will have 2 more weeks to prove himself.
