  1. Thundercrack says:

    2. In the less isolated sense, it’s sad that this management team remains utterly incapable of producing a shortstop at any level. This type of transaction really shouldn’t be necessary.
    I feel they have produced the SS for the major league level and that is Clint Barmes. That I is why I will fall back to the first point – this move for McDonald is not a big deal. Because he is the backup.

    DK: I’d also weigh McDonald’s role in being one of four pinch-hitters Clint Hurdle can call upon in a game.

  2. Frankie says:

    Go to the Dominican Republic and find the nearest playground and sign the kid playing shortstop.

  3. Arriba Wilver says:

    “The blog is like the Utah mountains, always there, overwhelming at times and sometimes capable of trapping large quantities of pollution.”

    Should save that one’ DK. Well done!

  4. NMR says:

    Rene Gayo did that three years ago. His name is Alen Hansen and he’s one of the top 50 prospects in baseball.

  5. NMR says:

    Does Clint Hurdle know he can use his backup shortstop to pinch hit?

    DK, can you let him know next time you see him?

  6. Dom says:

    Will people be calling for Dixon to be fired 20 minutes from now?

  7. NMR says:

    You haven’t been in the game thread yet, have you? :)

  8. Dom says:

    Woops. I did miss that.

  9. MadTurk says:

    That was the game thread? I thought it was the penguin thread? Sure sounded like it

  10. Milo Hamilton says:

    Someone asked on the chat when would Consol make its NCAA Tournament debut. That would be last year. How soon we forget.

  11. Milo Hamilton says:

    I too believe there was a second gunman, yet no conspiracy.
