    Yes, that Guerrier. LEN3 tweeted it during the game.

    I want to know if Guerrier can catch.

    And possibly coach a little third base when needed.

    One other thing: we've all known companies that aren't doing well, but kept promoting friends of the boss, even though just about everyone at the company thought there were dozens of more capable people. It's really demotivating, particularly to younger, talented performers. Of course, professional baseball is different from most businesses, and the incentives for young, talented performers are much greater than in nearly every other industry, but talented young minor leaguers are still young people, subject to the same range of emotions as any other young person.

    Guerrier up. Darnell down. Assuming corresponding 40-man move comes tomorrow pre-game.

    Guerrier has been taking flies in the outfield, 4th outfielder.

    If there is one thing you can never have enough of when you have a 2 man bench it is 35 year old washed up relief pitchers.

    It sounds like Arcia was going to come up too, but he was scratched from tonight's game due to some soreness. I wouldn't be shocked if all of Arcia, Hicks and Nunez were called up after the Detroit series. Better late than never. Right?

    And yet, somehow I am to trust this front office to rebuild this team. I will never feel bad about ripping Gardy and this front office again.

    Good job Gardy has those 13 pitchers to hang out with when his late game bench in a winnable game consists of Herrmann and a gimpy Mauer. This is incompetence bordering on negligence.

    Gee, I thought the 25-man was out of whack, but they'd fix it. So, they keep a 13-man staff after receiving five QSs in six games (and the other game required only two pitchers). The team didn't address the short bench (and you know Mauer won't play at least tomorrow), they didn't deal with the three shortstops, with the starter hitting less than a buck and a quarter. They didn't bother to bring up or activate a legitimate outfielder or send down an unneeded third catcher (also hitting less than a buck and a quarter). I know, patience, patience, but this is truly maddening. All rebuilds are enhanced by promoting 35-year-old who haven't pitched effectively in the current decade.

    Not that we need 13 pitchers but its not even like Guerrier has lit up the IL.

    In 5 IP he's given up 2 HR's while striking out 3 and walking 2.

    I am trying to keep an open mind but this doesn't make sense from any angle.

    My only hope was They planned on sending down Santana, but changed course since he has played so well. Hopefully Burton gets the flight to Rochester to make room for Parmelee.

    So does Matty G play bass in the band Gardy is getting back together? Wait, did Bartlett play keyboard then? I'm all sorts of confused on what type of band this is supposed to be.
