Time to make changes

Josh Willingham and Joe Dillon have to be called up, now. They are both absolutely on fire.

 

It's becoming obvious to me that Redmond, like we all believed, cannot handle being an every day starter. He has gotten continually worse since Castro went on the DL. and while Treanor has been ok, he's just not the answer, a solid backup, but not the answer. The good thing about Willingham, is that not only could he split time at catcher with Treanor and Redmond, but he can also play 1b, 3b, and LF. I know the argument has been that if we brought him up he would need to play almost every day, but with his versatility he would find plenty of playing time up here.

 

With Dillon he does not need to play every day, although I think he could definetly see some time at 1st base against lefties. He can play also play 2nd and 3rd base which could be very valuable.

 

So this is my plan. When Beckett goes on the DL instead of bringing up another pitcher you bring up Willingham, and I'm sorry I like the guy, but Lenny Harris is a worthless piece of crap. Release him and bring up Dillon. If we do get back in the race though, it is imperative that we get a left-handed bat.

Joe Dillon went 3-5 today, with 2 doubles and a homer. This wasn't in the launching pad that is Isotopes field, it was in Iowa. He is now hitting .372.

 

Josh Willingham went 2-4 with a double and a walk today. He's gotten his average up to .282 and his OBP up to about .425. There's no doubt that his bat is ready.

im pretty sure we will see dillon

 

they moved him to LF for a reason

 

BTW, did he play LF tonight? has he been playing it often?

I'm starting to think they didn't like what they saw of him in left. He's been the topes starting 2nd baseman for the last week. I still think he would be a very valuable player off the bench and could see time at 1st base and maybe give Luis or Mike a rest once in a while.

OK, Beinfest, now just do the other part I talked about. (getting Dillon up here, releasing Lenny Harris) Then I'll be happy.

Just in case anyone hasn't been paying attention:

 

Lenny Harris is hitting .130 as a pinch hitter.

 

I agree, time to let him go and bring up Dillon.

off the bench...that is a scary thought, look what happened with Nunez by only using him off the bench....not the ideal situation for a consistent performer.

It's at least worth a try, the guy has been around awhile he's 28 years old. He couldn't do any worse than Harris or Nunez.
