I doubt Jimenez will have that much of an impact which will turn this club around.
True, Krusty, D'Jimmeniz is not an impact player, but they basically got him for free. (Scott Dunn will struggle to even make the majors, IMO).
I agree with Raisor that D'Jimmenez immediately becomes our best option to start at 2b.
If we ever get a real 2b in the future, D'Jimmenez can settle in the utility role and maybe, just maybe Bowden will
resist the urge to give Castro another long term contract.
Worst case, D'Jimminez strengthens the bench at virtually no cost. Even if he bombs, it's not like he cost us anything
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
