    thank you!!!

    Please, no more Contreras – cut him when he comes off the DL – along with John McDonald.

    Contraras found out this afternoon that he got hurt yesterday and will likely need a 30 day rehab.

    I’m officially agreeing with the masses that Hurdle will only play vets. There is zero reason for Barmes to be out there over Mercer. Yes, I typed this after the double play and before the error.

    tonight’s game is maddening, gomez throws up a zero through 7 and I have to watch them make Porcello and his 6 ERA look like the 2nd coming of Bob Gibson and then Barmes ground into a DP and then commit an error in back to back innings, more Mercer please
