Last night was a defining moment for him and he blew it. You could recall Oliver to take his place. And yes, I would rather have Harrison or d’Arnaud or Presley on the team than Inge.

I see no need for him at this time and he just doesn’t hit.
As for McDonald, they should have moved him when he was pitching well. Now if he still has any value I would try to trade him as soon as possible.

Also, Surprised they are not attemping to get Eric Young Jr. They’ve had their eyes on him for years. I’d rather have him than Inge at least.

Although he’s not a lefthander, Duke Welker would be an upgrade. Is Vic Black still on the DL??

It is encouraging that they cut John McDonald, Sanchez, and Contreras fairly quickly once it was obvious that they were all poor signings.

Now, if they will do the same with James McDonald and Inge.

As for Morton tonight, not surprisingly another extremely inconsistent and frustrating performance. He has quality “stuff”, but IMHO he lacks mental toughness – much like Kip Wells was. I hope they don’t keep trotting him out there very 4-5 days if this is the type of performance we are going to get from him – which is what I would expect given his past performance.

Now i can bench Marte in my fantasy league.
