Tillman needs to do the right thing and retire.

He's pitching in Frederick tonight.

How recently have you watched Means?    Have you seen much of him in his current hot streak?    His K/9 and K/BB are off the charts compared to what Means has done historically, and that makes me wonder if something fundamental has changed for Means.    Maybe Mike Griffin has taught him a new trick.   

I have, it's nothing new IMO, it's just consistent feel for FB, CB, CH. Ability to throw them in any count and keep them out of the middle of the plate. Basically the same thing he was doing last year when pitching well, just more consistent.

I think Akin needs to show he's fully healthy after a couple of bad outings and his groin issue before a promotion.

Good point about Akins. I'd like also see him get some starts at AAA before being an option. I could see him being a September callup either way though unless for some reason they want to save a 40-man roster spot this offseason, but that would seem silly with as much flotsam and jetsam that's currently on the 40-man. Guess it will really depend on who they get in return for Machado, Britton, Jones, etc.

Cashner to the DL. Maybe this opens the door for Means

Well, if they give it to Tillman it will be a joke!

Is it a home game?  If so give it to Tillman, have him tip his cap and get relieved without facing a batter.  He retires after the game.

No offense to the guy, but at this point he's ruining his legacy by not retiring when it's clear that he can't even get low minor leaguers out consistently.

I agree.  Hence him not actually pitching, just getting a chance to say goodbye.

If it's a road game that would be all sorts of awkward.

Hope he's pitching left handed.  I'd wager that most of us suspect the right arm is damaged beyond repair.
