I liked your thought process Amazinz. Maybe they knew something no one else did!
I don't quite believe that. The Brewers got rid of him dirt cheap over a year ago because he was so bad in the field and basically uncoachable at the plate. While he did hit for a decent average he wouldn't listen to a word the coahces said and was not a contact hitter with RISP. Not a team player at all.

I hate to say it, but I don't think he ever plays again. He's not a star, so the team losing him doesn't lose much. Who would want to have this guy now? I don't know...I'm probably over-reacting, but do you guys think he'll be playing in 10 games?
Going to huge someday.
