RT @b_ham_3: What's there to do in cincy tonight?
You got me falsely excited that he had been called up, but I scrolled down and he had actually already been in town before the injury to attend the game:
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
One might suggest he go find a park bench and practice riding the pine, if he indeed got called up at this point.
lol I saw that tweet last night and was like "OMG" then I scrolled down some more.
While I'd be excited when he eventually gets to the bigs, I'd be disappointed if the Reds pushed the panic button on him. He needs those everyday ABs.
Rounding third and heading for home...
Call him up - move Choo over and let's see what happens -BOLD is good. If he does better than last years CFer we are ahead of the game -and i gotta think he could do at least that well. Do it Walt -call him up.
Ah...people you trust .... that's about the softest endorsement and reason for not being bold and making a strong decision...."I know people and these people know things" (i'm being a jerk).
You transfer Choo to left and his WAR goes from 2 back up to 4. You put Hamilton in Center and i betcha he could give ya a 1.5 wins total. It's a net improvement -- do it -be bold -lets take this thing and demolish the other teams in our division.
im 10000% against bringing hamilton up. But its not going to happen so we dont have to worry about it
Bring him up - put him in CF and Choo in left and lets win the division by 20 games - lets be great!!
he's not ready
Even if he rakes at AAA, the Reds won't bring him up any time soon.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
