aboz56 Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 We aren't going to win with these guys, what is the point of bringing up Jamie Burke? While the options aren't exactly exciting at Charlotte, why not Andres Torres a speed guy you can bring in to pinch run and also as a guy who can put down the bunt, something this team lacks greatly in certain situations? And why not Jeremy Reed, who has struggled, but is our number one prospect and could surely be an ample replacement for our missing outfielder in right... Kelly Dransfeldt is a guy who was RELEASED from AAA last year and Jamie Burke, while a nice guy and a good clubhouse guy, is pretty much a AAA player who is not going to help you win now or in the future. To me, these guys have NO upside whatsoever. We are better suited taking a chance on players who have the upside like Reed and even Torres (for pinch running and bunting situations) than calling up career minor leaguers. Who knows, maybe even Borchard should be mentioned if he is deemed ready to play in the next few days, which wouldn't be a surprise. Or perhaps, making a trade would best suit this situation. Nonetheless, I am not in the least bit happy with having Burke and Dransfeldt on the active roster... :headshake Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
