    I don't know why they would call him up and not give him ABs. It would be stunting his growth as a player having him sit on the bench.

    You could say the same for Smith Jr, who knows.

    You only use one option for the whole season. Alford was going to be up at some point anyway.

    How long will he and DSJ be up for? Pillar returns tomorrow, and supposedly Tulo and JD are bound to return within the next week or so. Our bench is Coghlan, DSJ, Alford/Carrera and Ohlman. Ohlman will get sent down when Martin is back, Coghlan is probably gone when whichever of Tulo and JD returns first, DSJ when Pearce returns (when will this be?) or he's gone when KP returns tomorrow. Is Alford here longterm? Seems unlikely.

    Not on the 40 vs. on the 40. They do have 1 other OF on the 40 though (Harold Ramirez). He already burned his option. They count from when he was added to the 40 man. So as soon as he spent 20 days down it was option 1 burned

    I'm guessing Carrera and Coghlan will be gone
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    I think Alford has to light it up to stay past Pearce's return...but there is a good chance the injured get re-injured anyway.

    He's so tough to watch but he's providing positive value.
