    But yeah...Louisville it'll be.
    He's the kind of player the coaches of the world always like. He goes out does his job, sometimes very poorly, never complains and gives 100%, but just doesn't do well enough to be vital on a championship club. And yet he plays because he's so...hard working?

    Regardless, I look at the ERA's of Justin and Owings and wonder why we even bother. But that's a downer on an upper night. Louisville it will be.

    They could be guys you store there beacuse of injuries or if you need an extra arm due to rainouts. Long man in the bullpen. I like Owings better for this beacuse of his ability to hit.

    Too bad this is not the 50's rules....and we can store them in perpetual serfdom in the minors.

    No, I think he plays because he's been so successful in the minors this year. He simply deserved the callup. Who down on the Bats deserved it more? I know W-L record doesn't define a pitcher, but it's hard to totally discount a 43-9 record over the past 3 years. Say what you want about his peripherals, but that's an incredibly impressive record. Considering our injury situation, I'm happy that he's getting a shot. If we're healthy though, there should be no chance that he's in the mix. But he's a solid guy to have available on the farm.
