Not surprised. Both of them have looked lost for a LONG time. I guess Clank is going to play first, Bogusevic is going to play right and Jimmy Paredes, one of the guys Wade traded Oswalt for last year is going to play third as Wade needs to prove what a great trader he is so he doesn’t get so screwed on Wandy/WB trades next month.
Jimmy is being promoted from AA where he has been playing second base – and has TWENTY errors in 93 games – and you thought CJ is bad? and he’s hitting .270/.300/.426/.726 over 385 AB.
He’s 104 fer 385, 22 doubles, 4 triples, 10 HR, 15 walks: 29 SB/10 CS.
You notice Ed Wade called up HIS boy – he could have called up Cody Hinze and his 1.018 OPS to play first, but he might succeed and that would interfere with Fast Eddie’s plans for that A ball guy he just got who is going to play first next year.
Brett Wallace playing first at AAA (so long Koby Clemens) is going to block Hinze, too, but it doesn’t matter because we have that A ball guy that Wade is going to call up, right?
I would guess that Bogusevic is going back down when Jordan Schafer gets off the DL. Too bad – Bogu is a very good OF and he can run, too.
I can’t believe today – I think I’ve had like 7 posts which has GOT to be a record for me over the past 7 years.
