    He’d probably have a higher WAR as a reliever than a hitter. Give it a shot. Why not. We are stuck with his overpaid ass anyway.

    What's the purpose of keeping this guy on the roster?

    I could see giving him a 1 month audition, just to see if he'd bounce back after his god-awful 2017 season, but he's been even worse.

    What are Shapiro and Atkins waiting for?

    I don't wanna be a conspiracy theorist, but Morales looks a fuck of a lot older than 34. Any chance he's got one of those phony Cuban birth certificates?

    If he agrees to be sent down I'm all for it

    He would never agree, just DFA him, eat the money. Lots of teams do it to put a better product on the field.

    Hell, Jose B would have been a better fit at DH, and as much as I love him. I would still say no to him.

    The DH is a dead position, it is no longer used for a POWER Bat thats past his prime. It is now used to maneuver your position players around and get them a day off the field and some light rest. If you team is built correct now you have more bats then positions on the field thus creating the need for the DH spot revolving.

    So he wants to take the mound in an MLB game without throwing a pitch in the minors? If he is that fucking dumb send him down and tell him he has been traded to an expansion team.

    He's just talking about position player mop up duty like Cliff Pennington used to do. No big deal and he's a shitty enough of a player that he basically does the team a favour if he pulls something.

    do you think that Morales will top Joe Cannon's slash line with the 1980 Blue Jays of .080/.098/.080?

    at least Joe (aka JJ) had a little bit of value on the bases.

    1 BB in 232 major league plate appearances is fucking phenomenal.

    He'd have an even higher WAR just keeping his ugly ass parked on the bench.

    I'm forced to point out he still actually has positive baserunning value right now.

    OK. He's up to 715 PA of shit since coming here. It's May 17th, and his wRC+ is 30. This is not a major league player, and it's time to drop the axe.
