    Tons of clubs are dying to have Joey Wentz and Beau Brieske on their team.

    If they don’t look at firing Avila they will probably fire the Hitting coach. I have some reservations on Hinch’s performance but he’s probably just walking at end of the year. I wouldn’t expect this team to become a playoff team within the next 5 years because we need to go into another rebuild.

    Good for him, and he showed some emotion after that. Maybe it will spark this team a little bit

    Avila lost Vest by not protecting him in Rule 5 last year, he was sent down by Seattle therefore back with Detroit and now dominating. Avila for GM of the year? Vinegar Strokes

    It's only 50 PAs, but Willi Castro finally showing something at the plate. Victor Reyes activated and immediately back in the LU. Is Willi's D that bad in OF? Why isn't he playing over Harold or Vic? Guess it's just a rest day for him maybe ...

    We need to call up Faedo tomorrow. I would guess either Harold or Willi gets sent to AAA.

    selfishly i play in some funky fantasy leagues where Willi sticking around would be helpful ... but i'm just looking over fangraphs/statcast and can't figure out any reason why he should be sent down in favor of Harold especially, or Vic (unless i am completely ignoring defense). Small sample size but Willi posting a wRC+ 147 and has cut his K% in half so far ...

    he (Willi) sucks in the field , but Harold isn’t much better. I’m thinking today is kind of a final audition for Harold to show something, or he’s getting sent down. Gotta stick with the hot bat for now.

    who knows, they could get rid of a bullpen arm instead or someone like Derek Hill

    On this team how the hell can you suggest sending down a guy with an .834 ops....even if he's just hot at the moment and it won't last, you have to ride him while he's still hitting
