    When you can't put a pitcher on the mound who can at least give the team a chance for a win, get rid of that pitcher and make some kind of positive adjustments.

    We may not be an anomaly, but that doesn't mean we aren't doing some things wrong in this area. We may just have some company.

    don't really follow college or HS baseball but from looking at several draft sites I would go all College with our first 3 picks in the draft.

    8. Nick Lodolo LHP or Alek Manoah RHP
    41. Seth Johnson RHP or Drey Johnson RHP
    50. Graeme Stinson LHP or Ryne Nelson RHP

    of course this will change by the time of the draft in June

    I agree but some on here don't want us looking at FA's so then what's the answer

    Free Agents don't make sense when you have guys in AAA, we don't really have that, that's why Miller, Lynn, Volquez made some sense as low risk investments, Lynn looks like he could pan out but Miller hasn't shown much more than flashes, and Volquez got hurt again

    Our AAA guys got hurt (Mendez) or ineffective (Hearn) and Jurado has been in the bullpen so far

    They should have looked for FA on very short term deals who had a legitimate chance at showing something, so they could be traded, but they choose to go the ultra cheap route instead.

    I hate losing him but we will need to put his name in the hat just to see what we could get in return. If it is really something worth while then I am for it. But I want us to be hardcore about this and put the pressure on the other team who really has a need for a playoff push.

    We knew that AAA was bad and has been for a while. And you know better than I do since I do not follow the minors like I used to that it is our lower level pitching that we are waiting on.

    I really hope he does well. He put his head down and got things done at Nashville.
