Per Rosecrans, Josh Hamilton has gone on the DL with his wrist problem. Proving Jerry Narron wasn’t the only problem in this organization, Wayne Krivsky recalled Chad Moeller (.170/.170/.255) to take Hamilton’s spot.
Wasn’t Louisville trying Votto in the outfield? Why not give him a chance?
Tell me again why Krivsky deserves a chance to implement his “plan”.
I’m starting to really wonder about Krivsky…bringing back Moeller is ridiculous.
Has Krivsky offered Moeller a 3 year extension yet? 😀
WK has issues and having 3 catchers is near the top of the list.
Krivsky was very defensive in spring training about needing 3 catchers. I can’t recall what he said, but he seemed to imply that having 3 catchers was pretty common.
Krivsky may be obsessive compulsive… 😀
How many ML teams are carrying three catchers now?
Is this why Jay Bruce was been called up to AAA?
Way to go, Wayne. Nice move. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
perhaps it is because he convinced some other team to take Mr K jr David Ross off our hands.
Bruce was called up, and (supposedly) Moeller was called up (instead of better players) because L’Ville is strapped for OFs right now. Wise and Bubba are both on the DL.
The second half of that message was Rosecrans, who may have been speculating. But as I said over at his place, I’ve got major problems with Krivsky weakening his major league roster – even at the 25th man spot – so as to avoid inconveniencing the Louisville Bats.
Krivsky regularly makes these sort of bone-headed, but seemingly-trivial moves. It’s easy to say, “who cares,” but the little moves DO add up, and they’re evidence of a bad decision-making process, in any event.
And to continue with the Krivsky “thought process”, the Reds claimed a LHP Alexander Smit off waivers…from which organization? Guess…yep, Minnesota.
Smit, 21, went 1-4 with 1 save and a 5.86 ERA in 18 appearances (8 starts) this season with Class A Fort Myers, including a 3.86 ERA in 10 games as a reliever (8er, 18.2ip). Last season with Class A Beloit, Smit went 7-2 with a 2.99 ERA in 34 appearances (13 starts). He was named Midwest League Pitcher of the Week for August 7-13.
Smit, a native of the Netherlands, was ranked by Baseball America as the Twins’ 14th-best prospect in 2003. In 2001 and 2002 he was a member of the Dutch National Junior Team and was selected to play on the Dutch Olympic Team in the 2002 International Cup in Cuba.
