Patrick Corbin was removed just before I turned on the game. Missed what had happened, although Bob said something like "unfortunate".

back stiffened, velocity dropped on his slider, he grabbed at his back and tried to shake it off, but lifted for Erasmo.

If Luis Garcia ends up a .270/ .305/ .410 2nd baseman with below average defense, is that playable?

On a playoff team, no, not really.

Just seems all this talk about him being a long term piece is premature. 

Sign Dansby and move CJ to second. Weaken your opponent while strengthening yours.
