Ryan Flaherty/Jon Schoop...

So you'd option Schoop just to avoid DFAing Young? :confused:

Doesn't seem worth it to me.

I don't thing it is just Schoop for Young though. If we had a 7 man pen going and it was just a easy Schoop for Young switch I doubt anyone would say keep him down. Young is the one guy I think can get replaced but we will need to increase the pen very shortly and Young would be the guy that could go. If we swap Young for Schoop that means another outfielder is gone most likely later this week.

Yea, I bet he is fine with it.

Nice to see him taking the high road about it.

You know what's going on. Liking it is another matter.

It is more then just not likening it.

I can see zero rational reasons for keeping Young on this team.

Just like I saw zero reason to cancel Gausman's start then not use him in the double header then give him a short start with the intention of a MLB start on short rest.

If I could understand why they were doing it...

This allows them to have Gausman start on Thursday with Gonzo going down and keeping all the guys on the 25 man they can. Dan and Buck know what they are doing and will try to manuever the roster to keep everyone on it as long as possible or maybe the entire time before a dl stint comes up.

Pinch hitting. That is the only possible reason, though you may not think it is rational.

Pinch hitting skill isn't a skill.

Schoop and Flaherty are both superior hitters then Delmon this year.

How is it rational to keep a powerless hacker on the roster so he can pinch hit in the American league?

How often is a hard single going win you the game?

Last season we hit .193 as a pinch hitter besides Young who hit .500. This season we have hit .174 as a team pinch hitting outside of Young who is hitting .333. It is not the easiest thing to do and is something Young is very good at.

    • This is a secondary or more accurately a thirdly or even a fourthly move.  Something he does all of the time.  It means next to nothing.  Elias loves to do this kind of thing.  And overall......it doesn't matter!   He may hit 1 out of 11 or even 2 out of 20 of these things....which is fine!  It is all reward and no risk.  So whatever.    At the very least it provides depth in the minor leagues.  Will it make or break the Os?  Hell no. If you can't tell the difference between me talking about Elias's fascination with other teams high velocity/high spin castoffs who can't stay on the major league club, and real actual major league moves?  Then you haven't been paying attention. I could give you 5 examples just in the past year.  Just another example of people like you COMPLETELY lying about a post I make.  And don't worry......you aren't alone.  Lots of people do it on here.  Again.....it doesn't matter.  This move.  Doesn't matter.   But if you want to call me a troll for you thinking I THINK that these types of moves somehow invalidate what Elias has done here overall for the past 5 years?   Then you be you.    But it isn't true. 
    • At what cost? You weren't getting Cease for DL Hall and Ortiz or it would have happened. Would you have been fine trading away Westburg or Cowser+ for him? At least he's having an up year from 2023. 2023 2024  
    • For me, it’s not about Moore’s tournament performance as much as his apparent ability to square the ball up and use the entire field. Legit power and hit tool. 
    • Right, which is why the Tigers kicked in 18M.
    • Norby was cleaner at 2B, but Moore has better athleticism. Moore would need a lot of work to stay on the dirt. I would think they want to move him quickly, whichever team takes him. 
    • 3. There was a lot of second guessing of the Verlander trade at the time.  Verlander was seen by many as a pitcher who's best days where behind him. 
    • Just a friendly FYI: If you click on the Tweet itself to open it, and then "copy" the web address of that Tweet, you can then "paste' the Tweet here and it'll imbed properly and the Tweet itself will appear within your post here (versus being a clickable link in your post).   The "copy link" feature of Twitter doesn't always work on message boards any more.
