The case for Chris Parmelee


wildcard

Recommended Posts

I have the MiLB app and see a lot of him, dude doesn't belong in AAA. I think that is a good idea. Davis has a strong arm and is probably better than Snider out there.

Dude has failed at the major league level. I am sure he'll get another chance. Much like Steve Pearce and Jimmy Paredes.

What I want to know, is how well does Parmalee play first base? I do not prescribe to the hide a slug at first base club. I live out here in the Midwest, and Eric Hosmer is so good at first base that he makes all of the other infielders better. A lot better.

Davis does that too. At least to my eye.

Parmelee has a history of having a great minor league season, getting called up, and doing nothing. Maybe he's figured it out at 27, but I wouldn't count on it.

We have a lot of those type of players on this team. Chris Davis, Pearce, paredes etc.

Could we designate de Aza for assignment?

If someone scoops him up we get our money back and if not, he goes to AAA and waits. Win win. He doesn't have the ability to refuse assignment yet does he?

If we did bring up parmalee and he struggled, we could always bring up Alvarez or reimold later in the season to replace him as well.

De Aza brings absolutely NOTHING to the table that isn't replaceable by someone else in our organization right now.

Lough can definitely do the same job at the plate, only with better outfield defense.

Nobody is picking up De Aza. Nobody is trading for De Aza. He has no value.

I agree, but I think this changes if a team with injuries/depth problems in the OF wants a lefty veteran down the stretch. Kind of like us last year. I don't want to wait that long just to save his salary -- we have a division to win.

Maybe. I doubt it though. We have been saying that for 2 years with a certain lefty in the bullpen. Last I checked, Matusz is still here.
