Chris Parmalee Had an Opt-out?

It would be nice to have his bat on the team but there isn't anywhere to put him at the moment. Especially with Davis getting hot. Maybe some DH spots because Paredes is in a funk at the moment but he will get a little more rope. No space in the OF even with DeAza gone.

If he is smart he will stick around since he will be added in September and be on the 40 man this winter heading into ST with the chance to win the everyday 1B gig next year.

Here's how Parmalee's minor league numbers have teased teams for years. Other than 2011, when teams didn't know him, he hasn't been able to produce at an acceptable level in the majors.

True, and Parmalee is only 9 months older than Paredes. Maybe it has something to do with the first 3 letters of the last name. That would be Par excellence!

You're right. Paredes will get a little rope, no much though. I can't see Buck waiting too long if he goes into a pronounced slump. Anyone else notice the attitude over the last week that he's been in decline? Shaking his head a lot and questioning strike calls and then after making an out he's talking to himself. Very possible he returns to what he's always been.

At least Parmalee has a good approach and probably has better on base capabilities even if he's never had sustained success at the ML level. Good call on next year as well. I see no chance we re-sign Davis.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
