Just got home and done reading through the thread.  Some thoughts:

I think Desmond has more range and might have a stronger arm. Maybe.

I don't know who has more range than the other.  They both have rockets for arms.  Nice to have them both on the same infield.

Davey is not letting them go deep at all, even when they are dominating. Let's hope the bullpen doesn't betray him.

Saw on twitter that Davey was planning to let Gio stay in but saw a chance to bury them so he went for it.

The Brewers can't close games.  >:(  Based loaded in the bottom of the 8th for the Phillies.  6-3 Brewers, for now.

They're pen is Mets levels of bad.
