    For Reddick I imagine.

    Sure as hell can't say he hasn't earned it, he's been killing.

    He's not on the 40 man.

    Easiest move would be Brady Rodgers to the 60 day DL. Will be curious what they decide to do.

    You think he will use his daughter as an excuse to get out of this?

    Is it still too late to make DJ happen?

    Or is this the perfect time to educate people on the plan to call him DJ Fisher instead of that other, sullied name.

    Yep; agreed. I'd like to see them hand LF to Fisher for a prolonged stretch and see what he can do. Can't possibly be worse than Aoki.

    Aoki, while having a bad May (.212BA/.521OPS) was pretty good in April (.300BA/.721OPS), and here in June (.333BA/.786OPS).

    Why should Derek change his name to DJ? Basketball Derek is the one who sucks.

    Average OPS for LF is 0.759 this season...so in April, he was below average and not pretty good. May...0.521 in May from a LF. While bad is technically correct, I don't think it conveys the number of heads that need to be cut off from live roosters to get out of that slump.

    Yep. Aoki may have just paid Jobu with rum instead of going the live rooster route which is traditionally more for bad fielding anyway.

    Gustave has been on the DL since 04/20. Putting him on the 60 day takes him into another week. That has to be the move if there are no trades upcoming, doesn't it?

    Well, that's why they're paid to do this and I'm not. :)

    Interesting though, they care that much about Rogers clock... I've looked at him as a AAAA type of guy.
