Yeah, the Sizemore deal was a bit of a surprise in how little they got in return...all due respect to Mr. Purcey...but gone are the days of him being the 2B of the future. Young players are given a chance to make an impact when they come up.

I get irritated when they kept playing yo-yo with a guy like Clete Thomas when they looked like they were playing fairly well but send them down but come back up again later. I wonder if some of that has to do with arbitration rules...that tends to affect when a guy gets called up.

On the bright side, good to see Will Rhymes playing fairly well in Toledo...hitting .316 in 40 games. I wonder if we see him back up again at some point. Sometimes a demotion can do a world of good for a guy.
