Probably you don't like extra base hits and RBIs. You're going to win with walks. Good luck, hope it works out.
Francisco is a forty man roster player who had a big second half so he gets promoted. His option is already burned for this year. The move has no roster impact.
That's why guys like Frazier aren't coming up. Not yet on the forty.
The obvious omission is Alonso, but he will soon be in the Arizona Fall League so they are resting him. He is on the forty as well.
Most significant is Bruce -- he needs to level out that swing and avoid all those pop ups. Let's hope he has a good last couple of weeks with the big club.
Interesting note -- they refer to Francisco as IF/OF. Not as a "third baseman."
