I'd love to seeTJ Rivera called up and allowed to play a few games at 3B in Sept. Hitting .350, then having a playoff game like that, warrants a promo.

It is weird to see a successful Savannah team start 3 Brooklyn regulars (Conforto, Amed, Urena) in first playoff game. While they are better than those they replaced, other guys play all year and then get benched.
I'd hoped to see better out of Rafael. Good to see Jack L pitch well in relief. I want him called up in Sept too. Hey, if you can call up Alvarez essentially from Savannah, call up Morris too. He should at least be in AA by now.
