That's the point though. Walt probably doesn't agree that they are better options. Based on the moves Walt has made, don't you believe he'd call them up if he thought they were better options?
Anderson Machado was hailed as having potential, based on his minor league numbers and defense too.
Some people want Maj cut and Harrera to replace him too. Herrara does not project well at all. The league will figure out his gimmick pitches when they see him more. As someone else said, younger isn't automatically better. It can get worse.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
