The deadline for Inge is tomorrow I think. I expect him to replace Presley. Maybe Inge can help, because he should be able to hit lefties, and Alvarez and Walker don't. Neil used to do ok against lefties but he seems lost now.

Contreras has to be added to the 40 man. I'm thinking maybe Karstens or McPherson will go on the 60 day DL. Maybe Hughes will be the odd man out in the bullpen.

Brandon "Cringe" has already been suggested as a nickname by someone on this board if he does not play well. I would like to add a few more possibilities to have ready:

If he gets really hot, Brandon "Singe."

If he gets hot for just a few days, Brandon "Binge."

If his swing looks like a rusty gate, Brandon "Hinge."

And finally, if we suspect he is on steroids, Brandon "Syringe."

I thank you.

The nickname I would prefer is Brandon Releasedbythepiratesinge.

Fingers crossed.

Contreras could help. Inge? Not so much.

Corrected for ya. The glove just can make up more than 10 runs and he will be very lucky to not be -20 batting runs. He is already -6 batting runs in just 17 games. When your max hope is 1.0 WAR its time to look elsewhere.

Great correction, agreed.

Its official, Inge activated, Presley to AAA and we get to see Inge start at 3B tonight against Hamels. Maybe this will have the ol' John Russell - Luis Rivas magic that he used to inexplicably get when he put Luis in the leadoff spot.

Had to read that twice. Thought for a second I was slipped something in my lunch or was having a lucid dream as a result of a seizure or something. Wow.

Not saying he's a solution, but the guy hit some dangerous baseballs tonight. He needed to be reminded to Zoltan though, which was hysterical.

For one shining night, at least, CH and NH look like geniuses.
