All these moves remind me of a metaphor that TwinsGeek John Bonnes likes to use: moving deck chairs on the Titanic.
It's an intriguing phrase that perfectly describes the frustrating situation.
I wondered what exactly that would look like. So here is my graphical schematic of the Twins moving deck chairs:
Look again at Cole De Vries. Poor guy -- started in AAA, called up 5/22, sent down 6/7, back up 6/30, back down 7/1, back up 7/3. I wonder if he even bothers to unpack his suitcase.
