Well now we know the backup C position will be truly worthless offensively.

Tatum isn't exactly a mentor either as he's only 3 years older than Wieters and has less service time in the majors...

My guess is that the pitchers want to throw to him more than they do Moeller.

I think it has much more to do with controlling the running game. I think the young guys like throwing to Moeller.

A bit surprised, but this does make sense. I bet they give Hernandez 1-2 months, then decide what to do. Either he is a starter or they send him to AAA to become a reliever.

As for Tillman, someone in the rotation gets hurt or fizzles and he's starting before June.

I'm not sure what you want here. There aren't many good offensive catchers in the game to begin with. Any catcher who'd provide a little bit of offense would probably be starting somewhere or at least platooning.

I'm not so sure. If we need him in early May, Tillman will be up. If we need another starter on May 23rd or later, I don't know if the Os will consider holding him back for another month to give them another year of club control. Berken could always step in for a few weeks.

The Hernandez decision doesn't bother me at all. But Tatum over

Chad? This is both an incredible statement by the coaching staff

that Matt is absolutely ready to fly solo and a slap in the face to

Chad. I can't imagine the pitchers being more comfortable with Tatum.
