Sounds like the same could be said for you.

Not in the lineup again tonight, I'm really confused why they would bother to call him up if this is how they plan to use him..

This is inexcuseable! A guy is mashing in AAA and you call him up to sit him while he's hot?! Either let him destroy AAA ball or give him a job already! I love this kid and he's just getting shafted the past year and a half.

Only if you keep him.

I'm a Brandon Wood believer but the key point right now seems to be that Mike Scioscia isn't, for whatever reason. And if he doesn't get his shot now with Vlad on the DL I don't see him getting a better chance at playing time unless Figgins gets injured. So right now I'm happy I missed him on waivers and am just looking to target him in 2010.

I've had Wood so long in my dynasty league that I refuse to give up on him...ever. He can be 38 years old in AA, batting .198 and he will still be on my bench, dammit.

hahahaha, sorry, i couldnt resist quoting that... but anyways, i agree with everyone else, i have wood in my $ league and started him today bc i didnt have anyone else and i figured they were gonna finally give em a shot but once again i was disappointed. :-[

this is getting really frustrating and i dont understand where scioscias going with this call up. if u ask me theyre literally wasting this kids time and hurting his progression.

Woods a solid player, I just have a hard time seeing him have any fantasy relevance for a long time. Scioscia's not the type of coach to give a player that strikes out as much as Wood does, the time of day.

Again, then why call him up? He's mashing at AAA, so not only do you not take advantage of his hot bat (which you need), you also let him get ice cold and force him to start all over again getting back into a groove. Nice confidence booster there! Was the decision to call him up the GM's alone? Maybe Scioscia wanted no part of it and he's just doing what he wants?
