    Anyone else jumping on the Bernadina bandwagon? Like what he has shown so far!

      Not being on the 40-man I just don’t see where he fits. Unless Hannahan can’t play and an be put on 60 day DL but then you would need a corner infielder.

      Hannahan and Schumaker are lefties on bench.
      Heisey and someone to be determined are the righties.
      Pena is the switch hitter

      Even that being said Hannahan 9 games, Phillips 5, and Frazier have very little experience at shortstop in the big leagues. So somebody on the team besides Cozart needs to play shortstop and or corner infield.

      I think Bernadino is around in case Hamilton is a flop or injured.

        With the start Heisey has had this spring and with Ludwick coming out of the gate slowly, I wonder if Heisey might see significant time in LF. If Bernadino keeps it up,
        I would DL Hannahan and place him on the roster. If worse comes to worse, I would cut Hannahan and eat some pride and money. We are in this to win(I hope).
        Injury or not, Hannahan has done nothing to merit a roster spot. Likewise, the jury should be out on Ludwick.

        I can think of 13,000,000 reasons why Ryan Ludwick is going to be the starting left fielder to begin the season. That is how many dollars they owe him (at least – if they keep him for 2015, tack on another 4.5M).

      • Alan Horn

        How long do you think they will go with him if he doesn’t hit?

      • MK

        Mid-June for Ludwick. That is when he started hitting in 2012.

        They would have to eat $3 million on Hannahan. Can’t see that happening.

        it’s amazing that these teams, mostly owned by successful businesspeople, do not understand the concept of a sunk cost. Ludwick and Heisey and just about everyone else not on an incentive-laden contract are going to get paid the same amount of money whether they start or never play. So they should forget about the salaries and play the best players.
