Its Mullins time...

I say don’t bring up any prospects until September. Why?  Just to start service clocks that will inflate payroll come 2021. 

It depends to me on what their plans are for 2019. If they plan on Mullins being their starting CF next year then they can bring him up now.

Mullins is in the lineup playing tonight but they are also in Rochester.  

He could practically walk to Toronto from there for tomorrow night's game!

Wow, insulting a respected poster and profanity within one post. You are not going to last long.

Renato Núñez has not played tonight for the Tides. He is listed as a reserve on gameday. It is a DH and he did not play in the 1st game. 

Unless he is hurt common sense says he is replacing Manny.

I would imagine Cedrick Mullins is about to be brought up...maybe as early as this weekend.Though he fell off just a bit in Norfolk he has shown some power, speed, and defense and I wouldn't hesitate to get him right in the lineup with Adam moving, for now to RF. Lets see if it happens.Mullins reminds me of a Rondell White type player...or someone like Marquis Grissom or Devon White. We can only hope we can catch a break for once...

Three guys who had 15+ year careers? Let's not put too much pressure on the kid.

Also, Rondell White wasn't all that similar to Grissom or Devon White. I don't see how Mullins could remind you of all three.

If Mullins is the next Devon White I would be so much beyond thrilled...

I'm not really old enough to have seen Paul Blair in his prime.   I consider White the best CF I've ever seen.   He got to balls so easily and quickly, covered so much ground in so short a time without even seeming to make an effort.   I bought bleacher seats for a few Toronto games at OPACY just because I wanted to watch  close up.

I have no idea if the defensive metrics back me up or not, but White sure as hell passed the eye test in the mid 90s.

You’re right. Mullins is going to be 24 in early October. Even if he comes up and sticks we’re going to have him through under control through his age 30 season. 

We have to play Jones and Valencia to try and trade them,  Well Jones would play anyway, but come Aug. 1st Mullins should be playing everyday up here.

Haha, I have had my run ins with Roy before but there is no need to get bent out of shape. We cheer for the same team, have differences of opinion some times and in the end, none of this really matters. All though Roy does have a reputation of making people cry🤣
