We really don’t want Mercer sitting on the bench, so until we decide to at least platoon Barmes…..no reason to bring up Mercer and DFA McDonald, but maybe DFA mcdonald and bringing up de jesus would make sense

And if so when do you think it could happen? Mercer is obviously our future SS as of right now and with the year he is having so far I think he might be in a good place to see if he can carry that hitting over to the big league level. I was just never a big fan of the McDonald signing in the first place, I think we have enough of a veteran presence without him personally with Inge, Barmes, Burnett, etc. and think Mercer gives us an opportunity to improve our lineup.

It was merely a “swat” that was outta here ! And if Marte keeps this up, the Buccos are for real.
