FP reading WNFF...

There go the Mariners wild card hopes...
The Royals won a World Series with a pinch-running defensive specialist who never batted.

I'm sure that's the reason they won the world series.

Just in case you wake up in the middle of the night having dreamed that Espinosa was on a hot hot hitting streak the reality is that he has had 8 AB's with one hit and two K's. He has at least lowered his K rate. Don't give me that crap that it is a small sample size :)

Maybe he needs 100abs to get going?

They saw how quickly the Angles leapfrogged them the wildcard race as soon as Anaheim dropped him and they picked him up...

He's a candidate for South Korea.

I don't understand how a team in playoff contention can release him when you take into account that his glove is worth 1 playoff win. :hysterical:

That's odd, they're way out of reach of that first draft pick

Released by Tampa Bay on September 21. Does Espinosa have a future in MLB?

he would make a heck of a slow pitch softball player, except that he'd probably get walked every time up.
