Question: If it's Hummell, why would they bother with the player-to-be-named-later nonsense? Is he on the DL?
I figured that if it's a player to be named that it's either a) one from a list of players, b) a player who signed out of high school or college less than a year ago, c) a guy who's injured.
If it is Hummell, it's about the level of guy I'd expect to get from Sullivan. Hummell is probably going to be a non-impact major league hitter, as he's spent two years at triple a without breaking a .350 on base percentage. On the other hand, he's started to hit homers for the first time this year. So he has a chance to be a Jay Bell type of impact middle infielder. (Homers and a lot of sacrifice bunts).
Did anyone catch Sean Casey's quote: "for what Scott Sullivan brought, he was cheap. ... It's a sad day here for a lot of guys."
I don't agree with this at all.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
