According to the omnipotent Ruben Amaro Jr., Domonic Brown is "not ready to do it". Shut the front door!
Yes, Domonic Brown, one of the top rated prospects in all of baseball over the last few years is not ready. Domonic Brown who is currently batting .341/.968 in Triple-A right now is not ready. Domonic Brown who has dominated AA and AAA over the past two seasons is not ready. Yeah, okay.
Yet, Michael Martinez, who has never showed up on any prospect list is ready. The Rule 5 pick that is 28 years old and is currently batting .194/.431 deserves a chance to show his worth because he is ready. The same Michael Martinez that the lowly Nationals didn't even care to protect is ready. Yeah, sure.
This makes no sense!
What kinda of f'd up world are we living in? This site's name- We Should Be GMs, was created because of profound stupidity like this. Center fielder, Shane Victorino, just went to the DL with something between a Grade 1 and 2 strain of the right hamstring. Brown seems like the logical call-up, yet Amaro refuses to do so. This means more of Mini-Mart playing CF and batting 2nd, which consequently equals less scoring and more losing. Not sure who the call-up will be, but I am sure they'll suck.
On a more positive note, Joe Blanton went back on the DL with right elbow pain. Vance Worley is likely to replace him on the roster and in the rotation. Yippie!
Now for some good luck...
