    Mercker to the DL, Burns recalled

    Kent Mercker has been put on the DL this morning and this is the really bad part Mike Burns has been recalled from AAA.

    Ok, dumb question. Who decides who comes up? Narron or Krivsky?

    I would think Krivsky makes that call but I believe he would consult with Narron beforehand along with the minor league people.

    Who the heck else do we have really? Lets take a look ... Burns has a 2.13 ERA at Triple A. Josh Hall a 3.38 but just got completely ROCKED the other day. Wagner has a cool ERA of nine. Burns is about the best option we have at this point. It's not like we have the next dominant reliever to just call up.

    I was looking at the Bats minor league pitching staff yesterday and Burns along with Venafro appear to be the only ones that get anyone out.

    The real question is what in the heck is wrong with Ryan Wagner?? They may have screwed this kid up by bringing him to the bigs way to quick
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    Venafro has only pitched 7 innings though.

    Good point. When Milton comes back I hope Lizard stays up in Cincy. If there is no room for him in the rotation, let EZ work two inning stints in the bullpen. This could help the pen and give Lizard more exposure to major league hitters.

    Burns or Rick White would depart as the move for Milton.
