he's gonna need his own thread.

The move opens up first base in Arizona for Paul Goldschmidt. The Diamondbacks debated long and hard whether to try Allen or Goldschmidt at first base when they decided to give up on Juan Miranda. Allen was having a fine season in Triple-A, but Goldschmidt was simply dominant in Double-A, hitting .306/.435/.626 with 30 homers and 94 RBI in 366 at-bats. A right-handed hitter, he’ll probably take over as an everyday player for the Diamondbacks. They had been platooning the right-handed-hitting Xavier Nady with the lefty-swinging Allen.

A source tells Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that the Diamondbacks are calling up prospect first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

just what I need after I saw Konerko leave the game today.

I have the no 1 waiver claim, this is probably the last prospect worth using it on.

Although Im thinking Weiland might be a solid grab for the Pads down the stretch

Just heard from someone in Mobile who tells me Goldschmidt is getting promoted.

held onto him for a few months, then dropped him when they brought Allen up again and left him in AA thinking he wouldn't get a chance this year. Luckily I was able to grab him before anyone else when he was called up.
