    I assume since they made the decision to promote him that they made the commitment to play him everyday. Calling him up for a couple of days would be incredibly stupid. I hope our front office isn't that dumb.

    Maybe they can just trade Zeke when we get healthier. Gotta be a few teams looking for a 4th Outfielder .

    They won't get rid of him until Pearce comes back and then 1 of them will go for sure, depending on if Alford or Smith is staying/hitting well. I assume it's kind of like a mini Reyes situation. The beyond minor league defense is making the move imo
    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!!!!!

    Yeah I agree. He shows some hints of talent but his lack of fundamental mental awareness really holds him back from being as good as he could be. Throwing to the wrong base all the time, fielding blunders, not a good base stealer despite being pretty fast, etc. Add it all up and he's probably fine as a 25th man but watching him play can be frustrating.

    With our luck this season, Alford will just end up getting injured himself before we have to worry about any of that.

    What exactly does this thread title mean...that one of Alford or Smith Jr. are gay?

    I think Grant is right. They had to add him to the 40 to protect him from the rule 5.

    On 40 + not on 25 + at least 20 days in minors = option year used.

    Hopefully they put him in cf over Zeke. I'm interested in how the defence looks.
