What a pointless move.

6 AB is way too small a sample size to determine his ability.

This isn't about his poor hitting, it's a need for bullpen help.

send down a struggling arm then in perisho or howard not aguila who has showed he has an arm and can play defense. give him some AB's and lets see what he can do. cant be worse than abe nunez

We need bullpen depth. What would be the point of sending down a member of the bullpen then? Aguila is expendable, and really, a luxury we can't afford right now (an extra (rookie) bat on the bench).

it makes perfect sense to send aguila down and bring a pitcher up.

 

when we went down to 11 pitchers, we didnt anticipate tapping our entire bullpen in a span of 2 days.

 

while i wouldve rather seen bump (or practically anyone else) called up, sending aguila back down was the best thing to do in this situation.

yes....this was a move out of necessity. the rain last night tapped our bullpen, and we don't have a day off until next Thursday, I believe. if there was another rain delay today, we likely could be risking injuring someone by sending him out there.

Hi everybody....great message board you got here...i agree with the idea of having an extra arm in the pen, considering the the rain delays and possible struggles by Tejera, but bringing Aguila up for this short of a period of time was useless...we didn't get to see enough of him as to how he can do in the majors, and he isn't really the solution for the offense either.
