    Xavier Paul getting the Call-up, according to Willie Harris

    Harris recently tweeted that the recently signed Paul is getting the call tomorrow. Good move? Figured they would go H-Rod or Navarro.

    Love Xavier Paul.

    Seen this story before though.

    Walt gives Dusty the tools and Dusty doesn't use them, instead stubbornly sticking with some moldy veteran.

    Definitely the correct move. Frazier moving to 1B for now means that we've only got 4 real outfielders, and one lefty bat in the entire offense. You need a guy who can fix both those problems and hopefully have a bit of experience to boot, and the only other guy in AAA who could fit the bill would be Harris... and I don't think we're too keen on seeing him again.

    Xavier Paul is Walt giving Dusty the tools now...really? And are you implying that this guy should be called up from the minors and plugged in as a starter, or are you saying that Dusty won't PH with him? Because Leake PH last night.

    I think he is concerned that Dusty will overuse Paul at the expense of a guy like Heisey... or try to force Paul to do things he isn't necessarily cut out for. Xavier can be a good contributor in Joey's absence, but he is more of a role player than an everyday starter.

    Sorry if I misunderstood your point, Kingspoint.

    Oh, well he's only 27 years old so maybe I missed the point all together lol.

    Either way he's up here because we needed to call someone up. Prolly get some PH opportunities and a spot start at some point.

    Yep. If they were set on getting a lefty up here (and it's hard to dispute why they'd want one), he's a better option than Harris. And we're calling him up in the middle of a pretty strong streak he's had going down in Louisville.

    No issues for me.

    What? No. He's in some movie about Wolverines or something.
