Someone is 4 for his last 25.

Small sample size, but you gotta be on watch with this guy.

Espi struck out on three pitches in the dirt. Just like Old Espi.

To be fair, no one is hitting well the last few games

Maybe Espinosa doesn't like June, and he's preparing?

If proving me wrong helps him succeed, prove me wrong Danny! Prove us all wrong!

He's not going to be released for awhile likely.  Rendon (HOPEFULLY!!!) will come of the DL first (and soon). Difo goes back down for that.  It's when Werth comes back.  When Werth comes back, do they want Taylor on the bench or in Syracuse?  If it's Syracuse then Uggla still doesn't get released.

Espinosa deserves to stay in the rotation when Rendon comes back.

Zim at 1B
Escobar at 2B
Rendon at 3B
Espy at SS

Ian Desmond needs to be traded ASAP.

This team should do advertisements for bubblewrap.  Until then, I'm guessing Espinosa as the first guy off the bench finds was to get playing time.  Who knows, they may ask him (or Zim) to play outfield.

I agree Rendon return probably send Difo down.

I think Taylor stays up. Harper can play center in a pinch, but Taylor is ideal as a 4th OF since he can play each spot and also si a solid late inning defensive sub or pinch runner.

Taylor replaced Johnson, not Werth.  Johnson plays all three OF positions.  With Taylor gone, it means your backup OF is either Moore or Robinson.  Taylor is up until either McLouth comes back, they get a new 4th OF, or he hits himself back down to AAA and den Dekker hits himself back up.

I agree on Difo.  I hope he's enjoying his coffee.  I hope he gets  a start.

I really really would like to see Rendon push Desmond into LF at least half the time.  I also would like to see Desmond made to DH when we get to Yankee Stadium.

Espinosa is our NHSMVP.

NHSMVP = Non Harper Scherzer Most Valuable Player

Danny seems to like June too.

Seriously, why is this guy not the starting shortstop?

+1

Much better fielder than Desmond. I can see that now. Smarter hitter than Desmond. In normal (= National League rules), Desmond should be benched; Escobar, Espinosa, Rendon should start. If it's AL rules, Desmond should bat 9th. Espinosa higher.

But how we all forget the proverbial spitting we did on Danny last year.  He looks for like the Danny of 2013

Not so much Zimmerman but I do think Stras is lacking.     Can you get me a plea bargain?

Espinosa deserved it. His best season was barely above replacement level. What he's currently doing doesn't negate that.
