I was really hoping we wouldn't need to see him on Broadway this season. I wanted him to get a full N.A. season under his belt, and adjust his strength training in the offseason accordingly, then let him come into camp and win a regular spot.

He's up here with the NYR with the same underlying problem as earlier in the season. He hasn't gotten bigger or stronger in the middle of playing a full schedule. Maybe he's a lot more accustomed to the N.A. game, but the major change he needed was strength, not keeping up with the speed of the game.

If we need to keep him up for the stretch run, manage your expectations about him or you're going to look foolish. He's no scrub, that's for sure, but he hasn't had a chance to do anything really to address his earlier season struggles.
