I don't know the rules well but could this be indicating an attempt at making a splash at the deadline with more cap space?
Trying to get Rockford some wins?
Kind of interesting to me.
No real mystery there. Ben Smith needs some playing time and as long as Q is happy with the play of Pirri and Smith, it's probably better that Hayes and Morin stay down (rather than sit out games up here).
....but then again ......... I know the season is very young but it seems to me that Ben Smith may have hit a bit of a wall here in Chicago. I hope I'm wrong but his play to date has been meh. If either Hayes or Morin play well enough in RFD, they could get the call at any time. I think Nordstrom will stay in RFD for a while, but you never really know with Q.
As for the defence, the injury to Kostka just gives Rozy and BB the chance to play more.
