    Pokey Reese goes from missing to unemployed

    Hmmm...Pokey was missing from the Marlins camp a couple of days, but I understood he was returning to the team.

    Marlins need a 2B. Can we send them Woemack?

    They may go with Robert Andino though I understand his status has slipped because of a horrible Arizona Fall League showing.

    As young as that team is, they could REALLY use a veteran-tandem at 2nd to provide maximum leadership and game-playing-know-how:
    Aurilia + Woemack

    I could just see it now. Imagine if DanO was still here.

    "Hello, Marlins? Dan O'Brien, Cincinnati Reds. How's about Rich Aurilia for Scott Olsen?"

    CLICK.

    No, DanO would have asked for Chuckie Carr.

    If we could get rid of Womack, Aurilia, Menechino, and Aaron Herr, and his "issues" were resolved, I'd take Pokey back.

    Never ceases to amaze me how Pokey can keep screwing up his career.

    Was Pokey in bad physical condition or just not able to cope. I liked him at second and thought he'd get settled in somewhere. Maybe he's older than I was thinking.

    Pokey needs to take Woemack with him.

    I do wish he'd offer some sort of explanation. It feels like a cliff hanger.

    Pokey is 32-years-old. He'll turn 33 on June 10. I am not sure of the physical nature of this "incident". Pokey tends to be more immature than most people were thinking.

    I know he had a tragedy in his life (fiancee passed away unexpectedly)... but that happened over a decade ago. Since then he has done some things in life that just don't seem too smart or mature (and some seem selfish in nature).

    Whatever it turns out to be, I hope he gets his act back together. I hate to see someone self destruct for whatever reason.
