Can we call him? Can we call spirits from the vasty deep?

Yes, you can call them, and so can we all, but when we call them, will they come?

So he's ready to take Desmond's job!

His name is pronounced like Trey, yes? The spelling is stupid. I shall henceforth refer to him as Tree-uh.

Should be pronounced "Mick-ee". Mickey Grasso, Mickey Vernon (1950 - '53 Nats), Mickey McDermott (1954?). Or classic baseball names, like Yo-yo Davalillo, Highpockets Kelley (1924 loser Giants), Mutt Williams or Slim Love (see 1913 Nats).

Bucky Harris, Buddy Myer, Buddy Lewis: infielder names. Too many kids today named Taylor and Tyler and Jordan. Nice kids. Not Buddy Myer: "If Ben Chapman spikes me again I'll step on his face".

Technically, can the Padres do that while he's still in their organization?

Yep, sounds good to me.  With Difo at 2B in 2017.

Love the 6/9 BB/K ratio in 43 PA, as well as the 0 errors in 42 chances on defense.

Desmond 8 errors in 56 chances (ugh).

as good as Souza has been at Tampa, this is still a steal if he's our OD SS in 2016.

Our OD middle infeild will be Escobar and Espinosa with Turner possibly coming up like Bryant. There's no way Rizzo lets a year of team control go for no reason.

well, he did it for both Desmond and Espinosa, starting them in the majors their rookie years.  Only reason Danny was not a super 2 was because he was sent down in 2013.

And I'm sure he learned his lesson with Desmond. You think Rizzo would rather (in retrospect) have given up 12 games of Desmond in 2010 on a 69-win team, in exchange for another year of Desmond in 2016?

If he makes the same mistake twice he's a fool.

It's not just about the super 2 deadline, it's about team control. We have Strasburg through next year because he came up June 8th, 2010, and lose Desmond because he was up on opening day 2010.

If both had come up April 20th, they both would have been under team control through next season (and as I said, wouldn't that be great with Desmond now?!?). So there's a huge disincentive towards bringing these kids up before mid-April.

Oh, I would not call him up right away.  you can hope he's learned, but once he starts weighing in windows with Stras and Harper, who knows how good Espinosa has to be in order for Rizzo to say, "let's hold off." 

Also, I think with Desi and Espinosa, would they not have had to go into to May before a call up?  They had both played a month with the Nats the year before.  Does that count towards 170 or so days of MLB time?

Great point. I think you're right that it does.

Difo has a lower ceiling but will be ready next.

Next year, Difo, Escobar, and Espinosa can duke it out.
