3B at Charlotte should be a sign. Bye bye Josh.

If Getz is healthy I'd rather see Beck at third, Lexi at short and Getz at 2B.

Getz hasn't hit any better than Fields.

Cowley saying he should be seeing most of the time at 3B.

 

Remember everyone game tomorrow at 1:05 CSN.

f*** Yes.

 

BUT.... If he's taking Betemit's spot on the team i.e. bench guy, than f*** NO. He needs to be STARTING EVERY DAY, not wasting away on the bench while Josh Fields swings through 89 mph fastballs

I'm surprised they didn't bring him up to start this series to face pitchers his own age.

Would have been a nice start seeing the young pitchers 4 straight nights.

Play Beckham at 3rd, and DH Fields with Thome getting the game off.

Ozzie said he's gonna drink himself to sleep, but wake up tomorrow and figure out a way to give Beckham atbats.

I don't know why Oz needs to lose sleep on this.

Pick either Fields or Getz to bench.

I'd prefer benching Fields and putting Beckham there. But just do one of the two.

So if he struggles his first week, how long until we hear about Joe Borchard and other failed prospects? This could be interesting.

 

About the second he goes 1-10. This place is gonna be hilarious if he bombs.

If he starts his MLB career anything close to how he started all of his minor league stops, we'll be just fine.

I'd think there'd be more blaming of Kenny for rushing him if that happens.

Although we have a lot of people on here who assess batters' swings, etc. If he is showing

some big perceived flaws in his stance, swing, approach, yes the anger will be out in full force.

And the calling for Walker's head again.

 

Actually the law of averages favor Beckham. How many of our new callups/guys acquired via trade do anything great right out of the gate?
