    Of course, his analytics suck and he's currently also on pace to get 610 PAs, which means his $8M option for next year would vest.
    He's been very good the last 2-3 weeks.

    May - .306 AVG .458 OBP

    5 HR 11 RBI 11 BB (Which is a huge improvement)

    They're skipping Lorenzen's turn in the rotation. Have said starting tonight, he'll be available from the bullpen.

    He has been a traditionally slow starter but this year was atrocious. Hopefully he is out of the funk. The last few weeks have been great and he is earning his keep right now. And has actually played pretty strong defense.

Nice to see Cingranni looking good, we have better young arms than we think we do, its exciting to see them learning and getting better instead of Gregg/Badenhop, even though I think Badenhop comes around
    Always like to see investment in young arms instead of the Gregg/Badenhop's of the world, no matter what.

    Did not know Lorenzen was available tonight. If that is the case, I think it is Villareal heading to Louisville

    Moscot has a 2.0 ERA, leads the team in wins, maybe not a better arm but he is getting results, has a better ERA than Iglesias and Lorenzen did when they were both called up, either way they all need to stay a Red, no need to pitch triple A when we need them
