Sorry, i know better :/

My thought is he will be moved soon. They sent him to the "minors" and is on the temporary inactive list, which shows me they are looking to move him and dont want him playing and getting hurt. Florida and Washington have shown interest


No worries, I know you were trying.

I wish the Pirates would take a chance on a talent like this. I know they won't, but this is the kind of risk they have to take if they ever want to be competitive again. We've got the retread bullpen arms that TB could use, but we're so risk averse we won't do it.

I really have no idea where he could end up.



Doesn't McCutcheon play CF though?

I am pulling for you Elijah. Go on down to Montgomery, get back into the game, hopefully a trade gets worked out, and then win a position with a major league team next year and show everybody just how much talent you have at the game of baseball. Just don't get traded to a New York team and I will be pulling for you the rest of your career. :D

I don't think Elijah will be fantasy relevant until next year. And if he rises from the ashes and makes a career out of this good on him.



that would be the worst thing for him. He would cause so much trouble in Oakland.

He Aussie Dodger! Im actually visiting australia in august! you from Perth by any chance?

They actually said "minors" and put him on the temp inactive list, which means he is not with any team at the moment, which leads me to believe he will be traded soon.

Trade him to Sabean and the Giants. The Jays got Accardo last year from them for their player with "issues." Why not try it again? :D

I agree. Get him out of town. Put him on the other coast. It' ll at least get his divorce out of the papers.
He will be fine, he just needs out of Tampa.

I will say this though, I am in no way shocked at all the Image showing up in this thread.

Uninformed, heard it on the sports talk radio, Image.

I hope they dont cut him out right. :o

He would then be a danger to civilians everyone, and probably wind up in jail within a year or two. If he can't play baseball what can he do? Its not like he'd have the social skills to talk his way into a paying gig somewhere.
