who is the fateful soul going down to Albuquerque?

If we put Lee Gardner on waivers, he won't make it through

Renyel Pinto is out of options, and would be claimed

Matt Lindstrom, but he doesn't deserve it

Jason Wood- but would we seriously shorten our bench?...

whatever happens, it's gonna suck... I think

Julio. It is only fair to the others.

Life isn't fair.

The more benefiting option would be Julio, since he's looked like the weak link in our 'Pen. But like it was mentioned before, it's going to be one of the young guns.

I'd chose Lindstrom. Though the only person deserving to be demoted is Julio. He lost to the frickin Washington Nationals.

Please send Julio down he needs alot more practice in AAA maybe he can find some confidence and control down there so basicly what Im asking for is a miracle.

I'm not convinced Gardner would be claimed.
Have you been paying attention to the NL Central?.... No doubt in my mind after his scoreless spring and good start to this year that he would be claimed.

I guess we'll see though

It would take big brass balls by Beinfest (try saying that 10 times fast) to send Julio down and admitting his mistake, but it is quite obviously the correct move at this time.

He's a 32-year old journeyman who hasn't had a history of anything significant in the majors. He was a non-roster invitee, and what happened to the "spring training stats don't mean anything" mantra? Something tells me most teams have a guy like him in AAA.

Sometimes Spring stats do matter though... but thats for a different argument..

anyway, I hope we don't chance it

I'd agree. But like you pointed out, we don't have many options.

do we have to keep pinto?
He IS our only lefty in the pen.
