    Yes!!!
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    There is literally NO WAY he can handle second. Dude's a frickin' bodybuilder of a man, and his agility is NOT for the keystone.

    After you said this I decided to do some light reading on their plans for utilizing him and apparently they just brought him up for protection, just in case Tommy Pham is injured. Otherwise he'll just be a fifth bench option.

    That is absolutely ridiculous. Why prevent him from getting everyday playing time just so you can have him there in case Pham gets injured? Keep him in the minors until he (or any other outfielder) actually does get injured and hits the DL.

    Great, so he's really just gonna be a pinch-hitter. I really don't understand the logic behind this. Are they hurting that bad for a power bat off the bench?

    You know this and I know this and somewhere Mike Matheny just said "Hold my beer and watch this!"

    Pham had some sort of groin issue last night so it wouldn't surprise me if there is some playing time there but they already have Bader and Martinez in the OF hand holding position with the big club. O'Neill should still be in AAA unless he's going to play 3-4 days a week in the majors. Again I'm not looking for logic on any club where Mike Matheny has a hand in determining his roster.
