Waldrop also has seen some time at first. That's what I guess he's going to end up being for a few years is a LH backup OFer and 1st baseman. If he sticks at all in the majors.

Stays in the rotation. The promotions might be delayed, or they might be piggybacked so their innings can be limited.

But these things usually have a way of working themselves out.

Not too long. Month or 2 probably. If he keeps pitching well up to the deadline I wonder what the demand for him would be.

Yonder Alonso has given up on being a productive MLB player and instead has made it his mission simply to terrorize the team that drafted him for as long as he can.

That was just a single though, and Straily works around it. 6 innings of 1 run ball by the righty in his usual solid start.

The Hart Foundation was good, also liked the work Jimmy Hart did as their manager. (Though my favorite manager was Bobby "the Brain" Heenan.)

I never like the NWO, though. (Except they did have cool t-shirts.) Maybe it was because Ric Flair had aligned the Four Horsemen in opposition to them.

I liked the initial NWO. I thought Hogan as a heel was awesome. Then of course it became like 30 guys and it and WCW both went into the crapoer.

Tyler Holt will get the bulk of the playing time in Hamilton's absence, with Steve Selsky as backup in center field.
