I obviously willed him to success. A simple thanks Mr.Bond would suffice
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Run diff up to +38... second best in MLB. A's are the only team we've played so far with a negative run diff:

Its going to be hard to not call him up if he keeps hitting like this.

Yep.

At some point you have to give him a shot and find a spot for him.

Unfortunately it may come at the expense of Tony Kemp.

I'm not sure who you send down for him, who has options left that we can send down for a while so he can get some at bats? Marisnik is playing well, it's got to be white but does he have any options left?

Maybe yuli or white "strain" a muscle and hits the dL for a stint ?
bearkatag15

I don't think anyone can be sent down so its gotta be an IL trip for White I'd think. Put him on a 15 day stint to give Alvarez a taste of the bigs. During that time you can try to move White for a lottery ticket minor leaguer.

I think you are correct that we will need to have a IL stint for someone to get some extra rest. We have a roster crunch right now. The big problem with that is what do you do if Alvarez comes up and rakes according to the advanced raking stats. Do you send him back down whoever it is comes off the IL?

Really tough decisions.

Its Kemp, White or Jake on the hot seat if they call someone up; everyone else is a regular. All 3 are out of options. Lets be honest. Its not Jake. He's easily pulling his own weight this year. You aren't getting anything of value on the trade circuit for either Kemp of White. Kemp because no one needs an extra outfielder with little power and White is, well, you know. So pick your poison and take your chances exposing one of the them to waivers and keep your fingers crossed. Or swap James/Framber as an extra arm out of the pen. I just don't see them doing that.

I think it'd be Kemp at this point. He's batting under .200 and his OPS is 150 something points lower than White's.

And with no options left I can't see anyone trading for either of them. I guess maybe if they wanted to ensure getting them rather than them hit the open market, but I don't either one being in that high demand.

Yep. For some reason Kemp gets a pass, but outside of a walk off he's been terrible.

I agree Kemp is a bigger waste of a spot that White at this point, but the idea would be Alvarez at 1B/DH, no? If so the spot that he replaces is White on the defensive chart. You cut Kemp and you really cut an OF and then don't replace him.

I'd dump white or James before kemp personally.

You can't teach a good eye and an ability to lay off pitches. Kemp has not been great so far but I do think he's hit the ball hard quite a bit right at people.

He works counts and fouls off lots of pitches but doesn't have the OBP to show for it right now...just not drawing walks for some reason which he has to do more consistently as the second lead off guy type role.

I think tony is a capable hitter who will be a solid player with 250-300 ABs.
