TT: Time to demote Smith Jr. and bring up Stewart

Recommended Posts

I figured the guy's season is over - try to find something positive to say about him.  He looked seriously hurt last night.

Lol, I was trying to agree.  There were 2 other sentences in COC's post - just thought they were a bit harsher than needed - not a big deal.  

I'm not one to sugar coat things.

And that's part of your charm - even if you do mind me saying so.

Until a few minutes ago I had never heard of Chandler Shepherd. I’ve looked at Norfolk stats several times over the past few weeks and totally managed to ignore him. 

Perhaps you didn’t look far enough down the team ERA list.   7.15 ERA for Norfolk after 10.01 in Pawtucket.   Obvious call up choice - NOT!!!

That's a really big drop, he's making progress.

I’m definitely not embarrassed that I ignored him. Ugly stuff.

For me the way they have handled Stewart is the biggest criticism I have of Elias this year. Unless they make a move today the roster construction even on a bad team makes little sense.

I mean why is this guy not playing up here the last 2 months of the season? They gave Smith too long of a leash and now they want to carry 17 utility infielder types. 

In the big picture if I think this is Elias worst decision it has been a pretty good year but I really question why he isn’t giving DJ a chance.

I agree, DJ needs an extended look. He's tearing it up in the minors and we have a real need in the outfield. Do something to give him a shot please. Heck, nickname him Rod and have "Forever Young" be his entrance music. People might think there's another concert

Stewart was not in last night's lineup and he is not in tonights game either.

Injured or in Baltimore?

Can't do a minor league trade because Stewart was on the team earlier right? 

So looks like a promotion could be incoming

My daughter loves his Avatar.  She screams Shopkins every time she sees it.

Stewart's status is confusing.    Roch did a blog article on what is next for the roster and doesn't even mention Stewart.   Yet Hyde said a day or two ago that they would probably add an outfielder.   I guess for a pitcher going to Norfolk.  

No mention from Dubroff about Stewart or the Sun or Trezza.   

I don't know what is happening with the guy.
