SEND THEM ALL TO THE MINOR LEAGUES

Ben offers his thoughts on the demotion of Derek Law and the promotion of 2011 first-rounder Kyle Crick. Was Law really the right guy to go?

Does the organization need to reconsider […]

THEY PRESSED THE PANIC (ARROYO) BUTTON

Ben and Adam discuss Monday’s roster shakeup. Christian Arroyo and Drew Stubbs were called up from the minors, Chris Marrero was DFA’d, and Aaron Hill was put on the DL.
