I like how Fernando Martinez is supposedly suffering from a concussion from being hit in the head with a baseball when he was still at AAA even BEFORE he got called up to sukc.
This allows the Astros an excuse as to why they had noooooooo idea that FM isn’t any good and to call up that paragon of suckage, Matt Downs. See, it’s justifiable to call him up because Chris johnson is very ill with the stomach flu and you can’t go calling up, say, Ruggiano because he’s already called up with Miami.
You notice that there are NO good pitchers at AAA or AA – the trades of pitchers for Bourn/Pence have not worked out real too good, sorry to say, which is why I hear tell, and am hearing rumors, that Luhnow is willing to trade Altuve and Lowrie for young pitching.
That’s ok – can’t wait to see Jonathan Villar and his .600 OPS at AAA along with his 15 errors playing ML SS along with Jimmy eff Paredes – important to pimp THEM too seeing as how they were obtained for Berkman/Oswalt, right?
