Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Kainer singled his 2nd time up. All kidding aside, you have to assume this was a spot replacement, and the plan is to end up at Billings or Dayton.
The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
Thompson: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K
Jay Bruce is due to leadoff the bottom of the 5th.
Jay grounded or flied out and is now 2-for-3.

It's been said before and it'll be said again, but Jay Bruce is amazing. Last 10 games:
.447 avg, 17 H (5 2b, 1 3b, 3 hr), 13 RBI
His OPS is up to 1.046 on the year.
Carsons call up is not a spot replacement it is for real. He was hitting over .400 in extended. They told him the news on Saturday. He has 3 days to move out of the place that he is in now and find another place to live.

That's terrific news for him. I'm assuming he will remain the DH for most of the games this year right? It sounds like everyone is really pulling for him within the organization and will not risk pushing him back to fast. Hopefully he can get back to the form he showed prior to the surgery
I agree, glad to see the kid back on the field.
