Hard to keep Hays out of this lineup

Recommended Posts

By far their best young player this spring. They shouldn't hold him back for arbitration clock...they should just let him play...5th HR today....He is healthy and looking good.

Him, Diaz and Mountcastle for me.

If they were going to do that they would have sent him down with Diaz.

Also if you want to do that with Hays he has to stay down longer since he was up in 2017.

How long would it be?

Arguably, the better he plays, the higher the value of that extra year.

I would not be opposed either way. It is great to see Hays performing at a high level.

Seven weeks or so.

Of course that would still make him a super 2.

If he's good, he's going to be expensive no matter what.  

I understand the service clock manipulation game.  I have to think that if I were an MLB GM, I'd play that game, too.  

That doesn't mean I think the rule is stupid.

I object to the term "manipulation". Nothing manipulative about playing by the rules as agreed to by the MLBPA. Encouraging players to stay with their teams another year and delaying free agency is not a bad thing.

I object to you objecting to the term manipulation.  The term covers what is occurring.

Everyone is so sensitive all of a sudden.    If you send a player to the minors solely to save service time, you are manipulating his service time.    Plain and simple.    It’s not against the rules, and it doesn’t have to be in order to be manipulation.

Object all you want about the language being used, doesn't change the actions of what's going on.
