Smoak finishes the night having gone 0-4 with a walk. As much as I want to like the kid, I think he needs to be moved out of the cleanup spot. Move Montero into #4 and let Smoak work out his troubles batting 6th.
Ryan also has an 0-4 night, but we expect that from him. Can Liddi really play a good enough SS at the MLB level to jump ahead of both Ryan and Kawasaki?
Eric Thames - What? Are we waiting for him to become LESS patient at the plate?
2013 AAA: .298/.390/.496/.887 5 HR 20 RBI
Forrest Snow - Things look rather Stark for the bastard of the north. Winter is coming.
2013 AA: 1-4, 3.86 ERA, 23 K, 5 BB, 1.095 WHIP
2012 AAA/AA: 5-9, 6.35 ERA, 99K, 67 BB, 1.674 WHIP
Gone But Not Forgotten (former adopt-a-players):
Matt Mangini - Signed a minor league contract with the Reds in the off season, but appears to have been handed his walking papers.
Mike Morse - HEY! Look who's back!!!!!
Jamal Strong - Let go after 2005. Played in the Yankees, Cubs and Braves systems. Now a regional scout for the Cards.
