    I’m curious, any reason why we never hear the team mention Herr as a possible help at the major league level? I’m not saying he’ll be great or anything, but he would seem to deserve consideration.

    I wondered that same thing a little while ago, Bill. What is his future?

    When the Kriv was talking about finding playing time for the younger guys in the pipeline, I think he was talking about Janish, Herr, and Votto. To me, Herr seems a bit one dimensional offensively in that he seems to prefer to hit his way on, a la a Marcus Giles, as his low OBP relative to his average seems to indicate. I know he has a lot of experience at 3rd as well. With Janish, here’s a guy who seems to be the same consistent player no matter what level, which tells me the transition to the bigs might not be as rough as it could be for Herr. You might be looking at the future backup infield and that’s probably not a bad thing, esp. if we can lose Castro. If any of them prove they belong up here, you can kiss Conine, Hatty, and Castro goodbye.

    I thought it was said last year that Krivsky was behind the Castro signing while in Minnesota? If that’s the case, I don’t see the team “losing Castro” any time soon.
