HIT RESET by Tom Brennan

HIT "RESET" by Tom Brennan

A short blurb for your humble thoughts.

Despite Grandy's meaningless 9th inning homer in a 13-5 blow out loss last night, he has been as close to useless as useless can be for a long time.

Like a drowning swimmer, de Aza briefly got his head above water but sank back below .200 here in late August.

Cabrera and Cespedes did fine last night and should be back this weekend.

WHAT ELSE TO DO TO HIT THE RESET BUTTON ON THIS FLAILING TEAM?

Recall Conforto and cut de Aza as soon as possible.  Why? How about Conforto having THIRTEEN HITS HIS LAST 4 GAMES!

Pen pitchers and Nurse have been pounded, including the unimpressive Ynoa.  Send 2 of them down and call up Smoker and Seward, both of whom have done really well of late.

Why?

No Wheeler (Zach or Beck) to rescue them, time running short.

This team needs an immediate RESET.  HIT that BUTTON, Sandy.

I totally agrees with you Tom... But man how we have a look of a bad team... I would still do as you suggested with Smoker and Seward... Conforto needs to play every day for him to figure his struggles out... (have D wright sit next to him every day for that matter to show coax him thru this rough time) cause If conforto is not a future allstar then we are really up a creek...

Conforto needs to play CF every day for the next 6 weeks to determine whether or not he can man that position next year alone or in platoon with Juan Lagares. De Aza won't be here anyway...end the charade and cut him loose already.

And Tom, how's that TJ Rivera looking? Tip o'the old chapeau on that one!

Reese, TJ has looked more than OK, that's for sure.

We need to go on a southern road trip and call up Southern Conforto. We'll all be in better spirits.

Look at Grandy now and recall that in 2 years when he was a still young 30 and 31, he had 84 homers and 225 RBIs. Compare to the present....and cringe.
