Cesar Salad Days

"Salad days" is a Shakespearean idiomatic expression to refer to a youthful time, accompanied by the inexperience, enthusiasm, idealism, innocence, or indiscretion that one associates with a young person. More modern use, especially in the United States, refers to a heyday, a period when somebody was at the peak of their abilities - not necessarily in that person's youth.
Cesar Hernandez since June 19th: 17 G, 30-70 (.429 AVG), 15 R, 4 DBL, 1 TRPL, 10 RBI, 9 SB, 1.103 OPS.

Phillies fans have no need to worry about Chase Utley's contract vesting for next year, because not only is he injured, but Cesar Hernandez has firmly planted himself as the starting second baseman for this club for at least the remainder of 2015.

Sean O'Sullivan and Kevin Correia designated for assignment. Hector Neris and Severino Gonzalez recalled.

who? LOL.. that's how much I've paid attention. Honestly I can't remember a season where I haven't been able to sit through an entire game, TV or otherwise. I know nothing about these Phillies. That being said, I'm hopeful for the future but we all know who the Terminator needs to take out of office.

Amaro states Cesar is 2B even after Utley returns.

Cesar has been doing good, but I feel he is more of a role player, one who should start a good bit but is not likely to be a star. However he is showing he has learned the art of stealing a base thus his value has jumped.

GM-Carson said...

I wonder if Francoeur holds any trade value. He's actually been a very good reserve player this season.

ripjgarcia said...

He may.. To a team with veteran outfield need headed to the postseason. But I wouldn't see any great return there.

GM-Carson said...

Yeah, wouldn't expect much of anything in return. But you never know when you can get a future bullpen piece. Example- completely useless John McDonald was traded to BoSox for Nefi Ogando, who is currently in AAA looking like part of the future.

Bob D said...

He is kinda like a Matt Stairs type for a contender - someone to sit the bench and wait to pinch hit with an occasional start. Would be great for a team with a DH too.

GM-Carson said...

Hecto Neris with narry a run allowed in MLB career. Celebrate the little things.

Bob D said...

Hector Neris now has a run, thanks WSBGMS for the shout out he says lol

GM-Carson said...

Yeah, Cesar has stunk as ince his shout out, and now Netis allows a run. Oh what powers my words hold. If I could only use them for good.
